Start your Hong Kong foodie tour by getting acquainted with the city. Take in the city’s famous skyline from the Star Ferry from Hong Kong Island to Kowloon and take the underground metro back. Next, hop on the Mid-Levels escalator, the world’s largest outdoor escalator system, and explore this hip, trendy part of Hong Kong the easy way. Make sure to skip lunch! This afternoon, your foodie tour truly begins - you’ll taste test the best examples of Hong Kong cuisine from six family-run tasting locations in Central and Sheung Wan. You’ll meander through an open market along the way, observing how locals shop for their fresh produce. Take things up a notch with some high-end dining tonight at the Four Seasons hotel’s Caprice restaurant, the first French restaurant in Hong Kong to receive three Michelin stars, before heading back to your hotel - we recommend either Upper House or Ritz Carlton.

Forgo your hotel breakfast this morning - you’ll start your day off with a foodie tour for which you’ll want to have an empty belly! This tour will take you through Kowloon’s Sham Shui Po neighborhood, an old area whose restaurants serve up some of Hong Kong’s favorite dishes for which locals will travel from afar. Walk off this morning’s calorie consumption with a tour of Kowloon this afternoon - its museums are a great place to learn about its culture and history. We recommend the Hong Kong Museum of Art and Hong Kong Museum of History. If museums aren’t your thing, the elegant Chi Lin Monastery is another great source of cultural insight. Don’t miss the area’s bird and flower markets, and of course, Tsim Sha Tsui’s Avenue of the Stars. Tonight, enjoy some of the city’s best Italian food at Angelini restaurant in the Shangri-La hotel, which sits in a picturesque location on the waterfront by Victoria Harbour.
