About The Kowloon Free Tour
|When you visit Hong Kong, you must think Hong Kong is a city of prosperity: the beautiful skyline in Victoria Harbour, the men in suit in Central, and the many Tesla you see on the road. Underneath the prosperity is the truth of capitalism that drives people to live in ever smaller space. This tour is about revealing this which will change how you look at the beautiful Victoria Harbour again. |
In order to tell the story, we will be going to the poor area of town. If this is not what you are looking for in a tour, then this is not the right tour for you.
