Followed by a vegetarian lunch in the Ngong Ping Village, the group will split into 2 groups, either visit the Airport Meteorological Office of The Hong Kong Observatory* at the Hong Kong International Airport and shopping at Citygate Shopping Malls where over 1,000 discounted outlets are found, or visit The Hong Kong Observatory Headquarters and a Tour to the Victoria Peak, which gives a panoramic view of the city with its famous landmarks and breathtaking skyscrapers before heading back to hotels.

*Visit to the Airport Meteorological Office of The Hong Kong Observatory is on first-come-first-serve basis and priority will be given to delegates due to space limitation.

Price: HK$350.00 per person


Remark: Departure on 3, 5 and 9 February 2010.

Hidden away among high-rise apartment towers and busy highways, the past lives on in the New Territories... a living museum shaped by the rise and development of the so-called five great clans of Hong Kong (the Tang, Hau, Pang, Liu and Man). Taking in historic sites around the New Territories, the Heritage Tour brings to life the customs and cultures of these clans and provides a fascinating glimpse of Hong Kong's rich heritage.

Tour stops: Tai Fu Tai & Fan Tin Village, Lo wai walled village & Tang Chung Ling Ancestral Hall, Lam Tsuen Wishing Tree, Man Mo Temple and Tai Po Market.


The Land Between Tour a.m. (with Lunch)

Event Time: 09:00 - 15:30 (Approx. 6.5 hours)

Price: HK$450.00 per person


The New Territories is an enormously diverse suburban area full of contrasts to the cosmopolitan city centre. "The Land Between" is the land bridging the motherland in China and the city centre of Hong Kong. It stands both as a gentle reminder of Hong Kong's past and its hope for closer relationship with the motherland.

Tour Stops: Yuen Yuen Institute, Tai Mo Shan, Fanling Walled Village, Luk Keng, Sam Mun Tsai fish farming zone and lastly enjoy a Chinese lunch at a local restaurant.
