What To Expect
Hong Kong is home to some of the richest people in the world. But the city also has the highest income inequality in the developed world, with one-fifth of its population living under the poverty line. The rich and the poor of Hong Kong stand further apart from each other than anywhere else on Earth. But interestingly, the richest and the poorest districts of Kowloon sit just next to each other.
On this Hong Kong city tour, venture into both the rich and poor communities to learn about the areas' development, as well as the cultures of those who call these districts home. Look at some legacies of the British colonial period and learn how the city is revitalizing its heritage buildings as well as the public's quest to promote local arts and culture.
Head to the posh Kowloon Tong through a big recreation ground and park, which acts as a buffer from the hustle and bustle of urban Kowloon. Discover many quaint streets and expensive cars. This is a luxury neighborhood, home to affluent locals, with whooping real estate price tags.
From there, visit what was once the biggest shopping mall in Hong Kong. Find out why so many shoppers lose their sense of direction and just let their shopping instinct take over amid the more than 200 shops and restaurants.
Then explore the other side of the city, an area that's home to social housing and charity organizations. Yet despite the poverty, this district of Hong Kong is full of character and color. As you explore, learn about the local government's efforts to improve the community and see sites such as the first generation of public housing in Hong Kong and a former factory turned into an art studio and exhibit space. Find out why so many Hong Kongers are rediscovering this area and checking out its vibrant markets, electronics shopping malls and the nearby Garment District. Finish off your Hong Kong city tour on a treasure hunt through the city's best known flea market. From rich to poor, luxury to grassroots, if there's one thing you'll see on this tour, it's the real Hong Kong!
