There is a story behind each place we set foot in, each person we meet, and each culture we experience. We are the locals in Hong Kong to share our Hong Kong stories with you.

Our walking tours is about what we care as a Hong Konger, instead of herding you through attractions.

About the tour

When you visit Hong Kong, you are encouraged to visit the glamorous side of the city – The Peak, The Victoria Harbor, The Big Buddha and all. However, no one will tell you that we have a poverty rate of 20%, or 1.5 million strong, making us more unequal than countries like Colombia and Rwanda.

This is not just a number, these are real people who serve you to be civilized, then return to their cage house each night without enjoying the economic prosperity that seems so abundance in Hong Kong.

This tour is about understanding HK capitalistic system and visiting the poor district including a sub-divided unit. We hope to give you the contrast in this city: what the tourism industry (i.e. Lonely Planet, Tripadvisor, Tourism Board) wants you to see and what actually happens on the street.
