Hong Kong After Dark - Evening Food Tour
The Temple Street Night Market is the last of its kind in Hong Kong. This iconic example of Hong Kong culture is bursting with energy and theater and is not to be missed. Vendors peddle their wares while fortune tellers look deep into the future and opera singers entertain the crowds. And everywhere is food. Palate-pleasing, taste-tempting foods of all description.

Your knowledgeable, local guide is the key to navigating the bustling streets to find the most authentic, delicious tastes around.

We'll stop at a Sichuan Specialty store to sample the tastiest pancakes in the city and visit a fish ball stall to try some famous Hong Kong curry fish balls.

The family atmosphere is apparent when you step into an herbal tea shop, now being operated by fourth-generation owners. Savor their fragrant, cleansing five flower tea.

Egg Puffs are among the most quintessential Hong Kong snacks. The ones we'll sample are hot, made-to-order and delicious! Next we'll take a step back in time to a 1950's cafe to try fried wontons with sweet and sour sauce.

Seafood is on the menu for our last stop. Enjoy a delightful fresh seafood and crispy chicken dinner, all served with a foamy, refreshing beer.

While the focus of this tour is food, you'll also get a generous helping of local culture, historical information and architectural gems along the way.

Hong Kong For Foodies - For The Well Traveled Palate
The best way to get to know a city is to eat your way through it and that is just what we are going to do! Cooking is so much about the ingredients, but it's also so much about the culture of a place.

With a local 'foodie' as your guide we'll bring you on an immersive journey through the culturally rich neighborhood of Sham Shui Po. Our path is not one you would find on your own as many of these establishments are tucked away known only to locals. Our goal is to bring you food for thought, not just food for your belly!

While the locations may vary, we will bring you to six locals, each chosen for a special reason. Our first will be to a traditional café, for a typical Hong Kong breakfast. Delight in a steaming hot bun, steamed rice rolls, and tea.

Continuing on we'll stop at a soy specialty store where you will learn all about this beloved ingredient. Of course, the best way to learn is by taste and we'll be sure you sample a few different products. As morning turns to afternoon it's time for lunch and we'll sample three different types of Chinese dumplings and will let you determine your favorite! To round off the meal you'll enjoy egg noodles that are made fresh each and every day.

This culinary experience wouldn't be complete without dessert and our last stop is to a local favorite bakery where we'll let you decide which cookie you like best!

While this is our favorite suggestion for first timers, even repeat visitors will delight in this selection of Hong Kong's classic food and drinks.

After planning a trip the next step is scouring online articles to find the crème de la crème of local cuisine. The best cup of coffee, the best kept secret eatery. You don't have to worry because we've done the research for you and this selection of local establishments will provide a great introduction to Hong Kong cuisine.

Our tour centers the Central and Sheung Wan neighborhoods and each establishment has been selected not only for it's esteemed cuisine, but also the backstory to their conception and importance to local culture for several decades. Not only will you learn about the local cuisine, but also important historical figures and notable buildings. We will also pass Hong Kong's oldest remaining open market. Sadly the market has been selected for redevelopment.

Our first stop is a family run and award winning wonton noodle shop. Enjoy wontons, noodles, and broth - delicious in their effervescence. We will continue on to a roast meat restaurant that has been a local favorite for 30 years. Here you will enjoy roast meat, juicy and perfected by years of practice.

It's time to rejuvenate with a sample of refreshing juice. Your guide will explain how the flavors of the juice will enhance the other tastings. Time for a sweet treat with a stop to a preserved fruits specialty house. Learn about the various kinds and each of their benefits, of course the best way to decide your favorite is by taste.

Next up is a Chinese favorite - dim sum. Of all our stops, this is one we think you will return to. Our last stop is to a tiny bakery located on a side alley. This is a local favorite and we'll time our visit so you can enjoy a tart hot out of the oven.

Half Day Hong Kong Markets And Countryside Cruise - Cruise Ship Passengers
Your experience will include a countryside drive and then a series of markets all the most requested stops. In general people find the countryside interesting but much of the area requires fairly long walks, so we will do a panoramic drive before resting in our recommended shopping area.

Markets offer the best 'deals' in Hong Kong but additionally, they give you a true glimpse into the culture and daily life. We have combined the favorite markets, all in close proximity located in Kowloon, for your entertainment.

The Wet Market traditionally sold live animals and livestock out in open air spaces. Today they are instead offering fish, shellfish, and frogs and often this market area includes butcher shops, and fruit and vegetable stalls. Now some also have dried goods, fresh flowers, tofu, cooking sauces, snacks and high-end specialty products. This is a great stop to do first, as it is very local and not as romantic as the others.

The Jade Market, as you would expect, is a series of stalls selling a variety of jade jewelry, objects, and decorations. Jade of all different colors and quality are there, often from other parts of the world. You will notice in China that almost all of the young ladies have a jade bangle on their wrist for good luck. If you are interested in trying one on, you will be instructed to squeeze it over your hand for a tight fit on your wrist, the tradition.

The Flower Market is a jungle of exotic blooms and scents that’s worth immersing yourself in. Though not unique to Hong Kong, the series of stalls with beautiful fresh flowers will call to you. Flowers and plants are frequent gifts in the Chinese culture and during the Chinese New Year, you will see people carrying kumquat trees of all sizes on foot, in cars, and even tied to their motor scooters.

The Bird Market idea is parallel to the dog park in the U.S. As fish, crickets and birds are the favored pets in this country, the Bird Market is a place where locals can bring their birds to 'air out' by hanging their cages on hooks and tree branches. The owners and song birds often sing together, a sight to experience! This, of all the markets, may be the most unique to the Chinese culture. Please note some of the hand-crafted cages, which are art even when empty.

- A traditional way to judge the density of jade is to observe the sound of plastic beads gently tapping each other. If you have a piece of real jade, clink it against the stone in question. If it sounds like plastic beads, then the stone in question is probably fake. If there's a deeper, more resonant sound to the clicking, it might be authentic.

Day Tour - Discovering the New Territories

Explore the different side of Hong Kong as you discover Kowloon & the New Territories. This region in Hong Kong can be attributed to the Convention for the Extension of Hong Kong Territory, a lease signed between the Qing Empire and the United Kingdom in 1898. Subsequently, China ceded these lands (present-day New Territories) to the British, giving them full jurisdiction to the area that was necessary to ensure proper military defence of the colony around the island. This New Territories includes 9 districts such as: North District, Sai Kung, Sha Tin, Tai Po, Islands District, Kwai Tsing District, Tsuen Wan, Tuen Mun, and Yuen Long.

Broken up into Hong Kong Island, Kowloon Peninsula, the New Territories and Outlying Islands this remarkable representation of urban and economic growth will leave you amazed as you discover its past, present and future.

Certain to exceed your expectations Hong Kong stands as special administrative region of China and is one of the world's leading financial, trading and banking centers.

It is impossible not to get caught up in each and every aspect. On this full day exploring Hong Kong island you will have an experienced guide and driver to assist you in following any whim.

A journey up to Victoria Peak will provide you with one of the most breath taking views of a city skyline that you will ever come across.

From Victoria peak you will be able to see the beautiful Aberdeen bay where calm waters will provide the perfect avenue of discovery of arguably Hong Kong's best breakwater. Maintaining the aura of a fishing village from the 1800s, Aberdeen is home to a unique form of harbor life that is as intriguing as it is picturesque. From boat dwellers to floating restaurants this vibrant water life introduces you to a new definition of living on the coast. The last village of its type in Hong Kong will give the perfect contrast to your discoveries within the bustle of the city sky scrapers.

Cross everything off your list at the famous Stanley Market which is home to walk-in shops and a variety of street food. Navigate the narrow alleyways as you find unique goods around every corner. If you tire yourself out looking for the perfect gift head down to the beautiful Stanley boardwalk for a bite to eat or some local tea.

Jewish Hong Kong - Cruise Ship Passengers
The densely populated island of Hong Kong became so due to many who participated in the development of it as a commercial and financial center. Jews first arrived in Hong Kong when the territory was ceded to Great Britain by China in 1842. Jews transferred their offices from neighboring Canton and Macau, which was a Portuguese settlement, to Hong Kong and helped develop this new port. Today, we will mix some of the cultural highlights of Hong Kong together with as much of the Jewish history as possible.

The Hong Kong Jewish Community was first established in 1857. The first synagogue was set up in a rental house on Hollywood Street in 1870. A new synagogue in memory of Sir Jacob Sassoon's mother, Leah, replaced the older one in 1881. The Ohel Leah Synagogue was constructed in 1901. The communal cemetery was enlarged in 1904 to meet the needs of the community, with the assistance of Sir Matthew Nathan, the only Jewish governor of Hong Kong. The Jewish Club, built by the Kadoorie family, was created in 1904 and enlarged in 1909.

The Jewish population, which had totaled 60 Sephardim in 1882, grew to 100 in 1921 (mostly Sephardim), and 250 in 1954 (half Sephardim and half Ashkenazim). Growth then slowed, and the population numbered only 230 in 1959, and 200 in 1968, a mix of some Sephardim, but mostly Ashkenazim.

The Jewish community did not grow quickly, as most Jewish merchants were attracted to Shanghai, especially in the period from 1910 to 1936. However, the Japanese occupation of mainland China in the late 1930s caused many Jews to leave Shanghai, Tianjin, and Harbin for Hong Kong. The outbreak of World War II and the consequent Japanese occupation of Hong Kong temporarily suspended all Jewish activities there.

There are now four congregations which have their own rabbis and places of worship. There is also a large Jewish Community Centre, which has a library, recreational facilities, and a kosher restaurant, and is the leading venue of Jewish activities in the city. There are two Jewish schools, the Carmel school, providing a nursery school program and grades K-12; and the Ezekiel Abraham school, which provides after-school learning for older children.

Many Jewish ex-pats arrive into Hong Kong and settle until their professions take them elsewhere, but some were born in China, mostly in Shanghai and Hong Kong, and their families developed businesses in China that have helped the growth of industry and commerce and they remain still today.

Certain to exceed your expectations Hong Kong stands as special administrative region of China and is one of the world's leading financial, trading and banking centers. You could diagnose this area with Schizophrenia considering its multiple personalities and identities formed from a variety of cultures and events. It is impossible not to get caught up in each and every aspect. On this full day exploring Hong Kong island you will have an experienced guide and driver to assist you in following any whim.

Majestic Macau - Hotel Guests
Macau is a lively, fascinating, diverse, and complex region on the southeast coast of China. It is a beautiful and incredibly “green” destination, with lots of parks and gardens, clean streets and sidewalks, and rolling landscapes. One of two special administrative areas of the People’s Republic of China (the other being Hong Kong), Macau manages to maintain its own culture and history while simultaneously being a truly Chinese region. On this visit to Macau, your experienced guide will highlight both its Portuguese colonial and traditional Chinese influences.

Between its natural beauty and its abundance of notable historical and cultural sites, there’s no way to go wrong on your trip to Macau. On this trip, your guide will help you identify the attractions that are the best fit for you. One of the suggested destinations is the Museum of Macau, which exhibits artifacts and collections that reveal the rich culture of the region. Another is the Mount Fortress, Macau’s principal military defense structure. Built by Jesuit missionaries in the early 1600s, the fortress was designated as a World Heritage Site in 2005. Another World Heritage Site is the Temple of Ama, which was built 400 years ago in homage to a girl who saved a seaman’s life. An additional suggested stop is the Macau Tower, which soars above the entire region and offers breathtaking views of the city and sea. One more suggested stop is a local casino. Macau is one of the gaming hubs of the Pacific, and many make the trip just for the casinos. Come check out what all the excitement is about!
