Découvrir le présent et l’histoire et la topologie de Hong Kong un vrai régal avec Alexandra ! - Elle vit et aime Hong Kong et lorsqu’elle nous a retracé son passé tumultueux on a été gagné par son enthousiasme et même les plus rétifs ont été conquis. Cela nous a permis alors de bien comprendre les enjeux actuels et d’entamer une visite passionnante sillonnant l’île de la mer au Peak (par le vertigineux funiculaire) et profiter émerveillés de la vue sur la baie ! Une journée pleine d’autres surprises notamment notre rencontre avec les fameux lions qui protègent la plus vieille banque de Hong Kong. Au temple Man Mo nous avons appris comment utiliser et lèvres de Bouddha et bien sûr avons succombé à la tentation de nous munir de gris-gris destinés à nous protéger en fonction de notre signe astrologique chinois. Je passe une dégustation de dim sum délicieux, le tramway ding ding et le quartier de Sheung Wan...

Bref une journée de rêve pendant laquelle nous avons appris plein de choses ! Très agréable qu’une guide sache répondre à toutes nos questions et se borne pas à ânonner des banalités !

Du coup nous avons réservé une deuxième journée avec elle pour aller voir le grand Bouddha et prendre l’air du large et de la montagne sur l’île de Lantau. C’était tout aussi intéressant et le contraste entre la modernité de Hong Kong et celui de cet endroit empreint de calme et de nature des plus complémentaires

Bref n’hésitez pas et offrez-vous ces 2 journées.

Merci Alexandra Pour ces très bons moments et votre bonne humeur

Cela fait 7 ans que nous vivons a Hong Kong en cumulé (4 ans la 1ère fois et 3 ans la 2eme fois), nous avons (re)découvert l'histoire de Hong Kong. Stéphanie a réussi à nous captiver, à nous faire revivre l'histoire: les guerres d'opium, l'arrivée des premiers colons, la seconde guerre mondiale... de nos jours en finissant avec l'événement des parapluies jaunes... toute l'histoire de Hong Kong racontée par la meilleure prof d'histoire ;)
Elle ne manque pas d'anecdotes pour agrémenter l'ensemble.
D'ailleurs, je me suis demandée comment elle a pu parler tout ce temps sans boire une goutte d'eau !

Nous le recommandons à tous les curieux et les amoureux d'histoire. A ne pas manquer !
