You'll need a whole lot of curiosity and a thirst for knowledge to make this tour an enriching one. For those unfamiliar tourists, Hong Kong is a member of People's Republic of China, that's defined by the diversity of cultures within its borders.
To give you an understanding of how this city came into being, you'll be headed to Possession Point at Sheung Wan. Here is where you'll get a brief history of how the British took over Hong Kong. Shortly after this place, walk the Sun Yat-Sen historical trail to trace the life of the founding father of republican China - including his school, place of medical training and where he plotted the revolution against the monarchy.
Your next stops are the old administration centre, Central police station, the Magistracy and the Victorian Prison Compound. Moving past the history lessons, get a breath of artistic air at the Fringe Club, housed in the colonial Dairy Farm Building, and known for its alternative performances and displays by up-and-coming artists.
From there you will be shown the Central’s landmarks like Legislative Council building, the Cenotaph, Statue Square, Court of Final Appeal Building, and the Anglican Church St. John’s Cathedral (the oldest Anglican church in the Far East).
Your walk down memory lane continues with a visit to the new Government Headquarters Complex, where the ministers, legislators, and civil servants overlook the city’s famed Victoria Harbour.
Finally end your tour at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, where the 1997 Hong Kong sovereignty handover ceremony took place. You may continue exploring this history-rich city by simply asking your tour guide for recommendations on things to do and see.
