SHAM SHUI PO Cultural Tour in English
Hong Kong is not just the Peak, Tsim Sha Tsui or Central. Just 10 minutes away from Tsim Sha Tsui by MTR is the Sham Shui Po/ Shek Kip Mei District where you will find another Hong Kong. Here people live in tenement blocks and old buildings with characteristic architectural designs. Here you will find localized street shops, selling cloth, garments, laces, buttons, beads, accessories, toys, computer wares etc. You will be taken through the streets that bustle with energy and vibration.
The tour is definitely an alternative cultural experience in Hong Kong when our guide will narrate Sham Shui Po with historical and alternative anecdotes.
The tour will end at the Jockey Club Creative Arts Centre (originally a factory building, now a heritage building to be kept in perpetuity) where 140 artists /art groups work at their respective studios. See the display of some of their artworks or go up to the rooftop for a panoramic view of the district.
Then you will relax in the Heritage Tea House to actually taste
