“An image began to form in her mind. There were streets, narrow and crowded with people and vehicles. Above them flashed neon lights and blinking billboards of every colour, shape and size. Some ran up the sides of buildings, others blinked on and off in store windows. In the space above the sidewalk, higher than a double-decker bus, hung flashing neon signs in bright pink, yellow, red, blue, orange, green and white. Yes, if white could be whiter than white, it was when it was in neon...”

THE DETAILS: Private Evening Walking Tours OF hong Kong AND Kowloon

Saddle up buckaroos and join me for an evening of gritty neon soaked, street action, tasty street snacking, bustling open air markets teeming with street scenes straight out of Blade Runner and Wong Kar Wai cinema. Sham Shui Po, Mong Kok and Yau Ma Tei, these are quintessential evening venues of "messy urbanism." This is the place where nocturnal Cantonese-street culture meets the pavement. Behold the “seedy magnificence” of old Kowloon!

On my private walking tours of Hong Kong and Kowloon you will literally go places and see things where no mainstream or large group tour can possibly take you. I will meet you at your hotel and safely escort you back at the end of this evening tour. And there will be plenty of history and local culture shared and explained along the way.
