Full-Day Private Customized Walking Tour of Hong Kong

85 reviews
There’s a lot to see in Hong Kong, so make sure you only visit the parts that interest you by going on a fully customized private walking tour. Save time waiting in line for sites that don’t excite you, and make every hour of your trip count. This tour can be themed by specific interests (e.g., food or photography spots) and is designed just for you.

This is a monastery that is adjacent to Big Buddha Statue. One must visit this monastery that is filled with colorful status of Buddha and if at the right time one can even see monks offering prayers.

Interesting to visit. Much better without all the crowds during the protests in HK. Have been here before when all the mainland tourists are here and its too busy to appreciate.
