What you'll do
Come with me for a nostalgic journey to Yuen Long! An old town in the New Territories with more than 200 years of rich history, and even undiscovered by many Hong Kong locals! Why don’t we start the day with freshly Made-to-Order dim sum? Let us begin at a vintage tea house fashioned after Hong Kong public housing, showcasing the everyday lives of ordinary people. After a hearty breakfast, we take a stroll to an ancient walled village built during the late-Qing Dynasty around 1800s. Inside the narrow streets of the village, we visit government rated ‘Grade 1 Historic buildings of Hong Kong’ including: - Hong Kong’s first pawn shop - Hong Kong’s only surviving architecture of a Qing Dynasty tavern - Two operating Qing dynasty temples We also see a traditional bamboo plaque maker, which handmade 3 story high advertisement banner. A craft that is disappearing. At Yuen Long’s main street, we get a sense of Hong Kong’s food culture by visiting a handmade crispy egg roll maker. Finally we end our journey by either sampling wonton noodle at a Michelin rated 70 years old shop OR an equally delicious Hong Kong style dessert at a shop so popular among locals.
Welcome! Born and raised in Hong Kong, I was a teacher of an English speaking school. I spent the last 25 years living in Yuen Long, a charming city just 24 mins train northwest of Tsim Sha Tsui, and close to China. I love exploring local places and meeting new people. I think traveling to different countries is an educational process of learning more about the world and cultures beyond your borders. What better way than to meet people and experience local life through the lens of someone who has seen the transformation of Hong Kong? Come join me for an insider's guide tour and see!
