4 Day Arts & Culture of Hong Kong

A bustling nexus where East and West meet, Hong Kong is a fascinating place to discover. This brief adventure makes the most of limited time, introducing travelers to the city’s gardens, tea houses, and antique shops with the expertise that only a private guide can provide.

Start your time in Hong Kong with a little serenity. In the company of a private guide, head out to Kowloon Walled City Park, a vast classical Southern Chinese garden built on the site of a 19th-century fort that, once abandoned, became Hong Kong’s most notorious criminal enclave. From the park, you’ll move on to Wong Tai Sin, Hong Kong’s most famous Taoist temple. (Buddhist and Confucian worshippers frequent the site, too.) Before returning to your hotel, visit the Chi Lin Nunnery – a grand Tang dynasty monastery built from hand-carved yellow cedar and assembled without a single nail.

As a dynamic meeting point for East and West, Hong Kong can be a little overwhelming. Take things a little slower with a morning tai chi session along the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront with great views of Victoria Harbor and Hong Kong Island. Later, take part in one of China’s most important cultural rituals with a private tea service at a local tea house before experiencing a restorative reflexology session with a skilled expert.

No trip is complete without a couple of souvenirs, and the most interesting ones are to be found in the curio stalls and antique shops of Upper Lascar Row, better known as Cat Street. With a private guide, you’ll have the chance to shop for jade, silk, handicrafts, and rare artifacts en route to the Liang Yi Museum. There, you’ll witness one of the world’s top collections of antique Chinese furniture from the Ming and Qing dynasties, as well as an incredible array of European jewelry and accessories. (Tip: Pack light; you’ll want to save room in your luggage for treasures.)
