What To Expect

Pok Fu Lam
Take a bus to Pok Fu Lam for snacks or homemade dim sum. In the old village, hear tales about how Hong Kong got its name (literally, Fragrant Harbour) and perhaps search for the origin of the 'fragrant stream,' which can still be found here despite being threatened by urban development. During your heritage walk through the atmospheric village, learn about Hong Kong's primary university, dairy farm, and other 'firsts' long forgotten.
