This tour is fascinating for most tourists, as it provides the feeling of time-travelling from old to new Hong Kong in just 3 hours. Gear up for this adventure, as your first stop is the city's oldest and unique markets. Here you can check-out the Western Market, the Ginseng and Bird Nest trading hubs, and the Herbal Medicine Quarter.
From traditional Hong Kong streets, your next stop is the Hollywood Road, known to be the centre of trading Chinese antiques. There are more than 100 street shops selling anything from Ming vases to Han Dynasty war horse potteries.
Take your pick from shopping at Hollywood Road or at your next stop, the Cat Street (originally known as the city’s black market, now an open-air curio market). From this point on, structures change to modern settings providing a contrast to the places you've just visited on this tour.
Your first "modern" stop is Tai Ping Shan where the culture is decidedly more Western and international, hinting to an expat community led by international business. SoHo and NoHo are another place that represents modern-day Hong Kong thanks to the combination of European style influences and traditional Hong Kong streetscapes.
And by this point your legs might've tired out, which makes it the perfect time to get up on the 800-metre long Central-Mid-Levels Escalators, the world’s longest outdoor escalator. Many people describe this as the best-part of the tour and a must-do in Hong Kong as the escalators transport you through a district known for being one of the best examples of traditional and modern life coming together.
From here on, the central business district and skyscrapers, make no mistake that you're in the most modernised part of Hong Kong. This is where your tour ends, but also where you'll find several clubs, and swanky shopping malls to explore.
