TOUR INFO

Hong Kong is one of the most culturally diverse cities in Asia, with a vibrant and unique history of immigration. In the ten years leading to 2016, the ethnic minorities in Hong Kong had grown by 60%.

While diversity in Asia’s World City is a fact proved by numbers, however, it is worth questioning whether Hong Kongers are inclusive enough to embrace this diversity – What would you feel if a South Asian walk towards you in the middle of the night in Tsim Sha Tsui?

In this walk, we will explore the history of Hong Kong from the people’s perspective – How Hong Kong society

benefits from cultural diversity with people from different origins and what we should do to protect this value of Hong Kong.
