Day 2: Hong Kong

Hong Kong was once a simple fishing village. Today, it is one of the world's most cosmopolitan cities where East truly meets West. See all the highlights of Hong Kong Island on this orientation tour by private transportation. It is a great way to get to know Hong Kong and its famous landmarks and history. Start with a ride on the iconic Star Ferry as you cross Victoria Harbour one of Hong Kong’s greatest assets, a jewel that people marvel at no matter how many times they visit the city. Next enjoy a ride on the World's steepest funicular railway, the Peak Tram! Looking down from The Peak, you'll be amazed by the spectacular view of the surrounding city skyline, the world-famous Victoria Harbour and Kowloon, towering skyscrapers and peaceful green hillsides. You will then visit Aberdeen, the famous fishing village where you’ll see Hong Kong’s junk-dwelling “floating community” - still very much a part of Hong Kong life. An optional 15-20 minutes sampan ride can be arranged into the typhoon shelter for a close-up view of waterborne life. Next you will pass through picturesque Repulse Bay on your way to Stanley, a popular market town on the sunny south side of Hong Kong Island. Spend the remainder of your tour exploring Stanley's relaxed ambiance and markets where bargain buys have made it world famous.

Day 3: Hong Kong

This tour reveals some fascinating Hong Kong heritage and starts with a visit to a charming parkland setting for a Qing Dynasty fort – The Kowloon Walled City Park. The Park sits on the very site of the former Kowloon Walled City, remembered today as a haven of crime and debauchery. Throughout the 20th century, fugitives and other criminals flocked to the lawless enclave. In 1987, with the agreement of China, the colonial government finally took control of the no-go area, resettled its inhabitants, and replaced the slum with a park. You will then visit one of Hong Kong’s most popular temples, Wong Tai Sin, which specializes in fortune-telling. The temple’s claim to ‘make every wish come true upon request’ might have something to do with its popularity. Home to three religions (Taoism, Buddhism and Confucianism), its natural setting and beautifully ornamented buildings make it as much a scenic attraction as an important religious centre. Next be amazed by the Tang dynasty-style Buddhist temple, the Chi Lin Nunnery. This Buddhist nunnery is stunning with its monastery complex having been renovated as a piece of Tang dynasty architecture. The grand and elegant complex will surely become one of China's great cultural attractions in the years to come. There are other halls containing a treasure trove of religious relics as well as restful lotus ponds and an array of well-manicured Bonsai trees.

Please note that with this tour you will have a private guide, but rather than traveling by private vehicle, you will make use of Hong Kong's efficient local transit system.

  • Patrick T — August 22, 2017 — Asia

    Preparations were excellent - we really appreciated the attention to detail. The VIP Visa handling in Vietnam & Cambodia was much appreciated also. Guides were outstanding - particularly Borin in Cambodia.

  • Levi P — August 22, 2017 — Asia

    Used Kensington Tours to book my honeymoon in the foreign speaking country of Thailand. It was great to not have to worry about transportation or accommodation. Our itinerary was amazing but the best part was probably our English speaking guides. We had three separate guides and each of them became like close friend to us. The travel was long but I wouldn't trade our experience in Thailand for anything.

  • Karen K — August 22, 2017 — Asia

    I went to private tour w Kensington to Japan for 3 weeks last month. It was incredible. My daughter was studying in Niigata so I wanted her to hook up with me periodically throughout my tour to see all the highlights of Japan. It worked out perfectly. I'd personally like to thank Adam Watkins who was incredible with detail, kindness and professionalism. The guide selection was a perfect fit. I cannot say enough about my and my daughter's experience with Kensington Tours. A trip of a lifetime.

  • Debra Y — August 22, 2017 — Asia

    All the accommodations were great. The guides were very personable and knowledgeable. As a woman traveling alone, I never felt unsafe.

  • Kathleen P — August 22, 2017 — Asia

    My husband and I had a wonderful trip to Japan with Kensington Tours. Our private tour guides were incredibly knowledgeable and charismatic. We cannot wait to make a return visit to Japan! Thank you again for helping us create an amazing honeymoon.

  • Ellen Weisstein — May 23, 2017 — Asia

    Poopsha in Thailand was extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic and great company!!!!

  • Kelly Jennings — May 23, 2017 — Asia

    This was the first time I used a tour company and loved it. We REALLY REALLY appreciated Phusa in Chiang Mai, when she suggested the Silk factory tour and Pottery factory tour, that was great.

  • Sydni Smith — May 23, 2017 — Asia

    All travel guides were excellent!! Mutchalin from Chiang Mai is new to Kensington.She should be used by you again. Excellent
