Wong Tai Sin Temple Tour (with lunch)
(Monday, September 1, 08:45-13:30)

Wong Tai Sin Temple, a Taoist temple established in 1921, is one of the most famous temples in Hong Kong. Known for its fortune-tellers, visitors flock here year round so that the soothsayers that reside in the temple can inform them as to their future. As the complex, you will also find a Nine-Dragon Wall, similar to the famous one located in Beijing. There is also a Good Wish Garden, a favorite place for visitors to gather. 


Hong Kong Museum of History
(Monday, September 1, 14:00, free time at the museum)
This is an afternoon program of September 1.
Transportation from Wong Tai Sin Temple to Hong Kong Museum of History will be provided.

The Hong Kong Museum of History has proved it’s possible to squeeze 400 million years of history into one 7,000 square metre space. A list-topper for history buffs, the museum has made enormous efforts in studying, collecting, processing and exhibiting countless objects which are related to the archaeology, history, ethnography and natural histories of Hong Kong and South China. Thematic exhibitions are also regularly held at different times.
*Admission ticket included.




Man Mo Temple & SoHo Tour (with lunch)
(Tuesday, September 2, 08:45-13:30)

First stop will be the Man Mo Temple which is a picturesque tribute to the God of Literature (Man) and the God of War (Mo), both of whom were worshipped by ambitious students looking to succeed in the civil examinations of Imperial China. These involved rigorous systems aimed at finding the best administrative officials for the state. Built in 1847, this remains the largest Man Mo temple in Hong Kong. To pause for a moment’s respite under its giant hanging incense coils makes for a pleasant contrast with the hectic pace of the nearby financial district.

Continue to visit the famous Hollywood Road, built in 1844 by the British army. This road took its name from the many holly shrubs lining it. Linking Sheung Wan to Central, Hollywood Road is famous for its many curios and antique shops.

SoHo area, this lively dining district takes its name from its location, South of Hollywood Road. Buildings are a mix of commercial/residential, with the commercial businesses on the lower floors, and residential above the first floors.




Tsing Ma Lantau Monastery Tour (with Chinese vegetarian lunch)
(Thursday, September 4, 08:45-16:00)

Lantau with its natural beaches, simplistic fishing village, peaceful monastery neighboured by the world’s largest Buddha is an ideal destination of a wonderful day. The tour includes visit through Tsing Ma Bridge to Tai-O Fishing Village, and Po Lin Monastery, with a Chinese vegetarian lunch. The tours end with a spectacular ride aboard the Skyrail cable car offering stunning views going down to Tung Chung.
