Guide needed

by LadyHawkau

Hello everyone

We are heading over to HK from Oct 4th to the 15th and would be very interested in finding a guide. We are not into organised tourist travel, we like to get out and about and find out about the place we are staying and see villages and meet the real people.

We don't travel many miles to shop,shop,shop although we do a little shopping to take home. We did try this in KL but ended up with someone who treated us like a business deal. We are easy to get along with and don't mind paying for a good guide. We take care of anyone who takes care of us equally.

If you know of anyone who would be interested we would really appreciate it.

LadyHawkau.

I absolutely agree with you and hate tours. Why not let us give you some suggestions and you can be your own guide with a bit of research? Hong Kong is easily navigable for the tourist, with lots of signs in english and very very good directional signs towards the tourist sites. I was there for 7 days and found it very easy to navigate. The transportation is great and I had great hints from other virtual tourist posts. For example, be sure to get the Octopus Card at the airport. Transportation is easy and all forms except for some Taxis take it.

I loved the Big Buddah and the surrounding area, along with the Air Tram that took us there. The nightmarkets were great and the Times Square (Hong Kong Island) was great fun. There is Victoria Harbor, Hong Kong Park and Victoria Peak. Don't forget to ride the Star Ferry. Definitely fit in a day trip to Macau. Best of luck to you in finding a guide and have a great trip.

I think you don't really need a guide.

For example, there are Heritage trails in New Teritorries, very nice things and traditional houses - wais - and temples you can see along those routes - and they are easy to navigate. I'd just get a map with explanations from HK guides/brochures which you can get for free from the tourism office near Star ferry station.

Then you just need to hop on the right buses or exit right MTR stations - and you can do that by yourself. Any interesting thing to see is well sign posted, even you're there for first time it's an interesting explore. No need to be afraid to get lost.

When we were walking Fanling heritage trail we meet almost no other tourists there, maybe these things don't interest everybody, but it's very interesting and traditional.

You can also spend half a day in Wetland park without a guide - there are helpful volunteers and biologist who will talk to you.

You can as well visit Lamma island without a guide, sit down at cafes, then walk over the island to other end. It's really nice there.

I just tell you that you can do many things without a guide, as HK is very easy to travel place in Asia, but of course if you still want it's up to you of course.

Travel Tips for Kowloon

English Road Signs, but more exotic!

by easyoar

Check out the Road Signs. They appear typically British, but with a more exotic twist in that they squeeze in some Chinese letters at the same time.

Although Hong Kong (and Kowloon) is now under the Chinese, it used to be British for decades before that, and many old British ways of doing things still exist there.

It is worth noting here that Hong Kong is strictly speaking just a small island. However in common parlance, the term Hong Hong includes Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the New Territories.

Classical view of Hong Kong's skyline

by victorwkf

Looking at the Hong Kong skyline and all the skyscapers & the Victoria Harbour at night from the Kowloon shoreline (somewhere near the Hong Kong-Kowloon ferry terminal) is a very memorable experience. Unfortunately the photos could not come out but I took some during the daytime and one photograph is attached.

Scaffolding - Chinese Style - it's Bamboo!

by easyoar

If you don't look too closely, the scaffolding you see in Hong Kong may look identical to what you see back home (I'm assuming you live somewhere where you have metal rods bolted together!).

If you do look closely however you'll see it is pieces of Bamboo that are just tied together. In Hong Kong they like to build tall, and this scaffolding just goes up all the way. I must have seen it going up 20 stories at least. I guess they have to build quick or else it rots, so perhaps its an incentive to get the construction workers to work faster!

Kowloon's British Heritage

by mikey_e

Of course, Hong Kong is overwhelmingly British, but at the same time it exists in large part thanks to the British. It would be foolish to think that there is no physical imprint of Britain's presence here, but the truth is that it is far more noticeable on Hong Kong Island, rather than Kowloon. You can still find, however, remnants of British colonial influence here, particularlyin the forms of architecture. Some of these buildings are Church of England places of worship, which explains why they would be so heavily influenced by British architecture, while others are simply buildings that were erected during the pre-War heyday of British influence. Either way, they make for great examples of the mix between British influence and the Chinese environment.
