What To Expect

Montane Mansion
At 10:30 a.m., our friendly tour guide will meet you at your staying hotel, will take MTR together to Quarry Bay MTR station.

Montane Mansion - a fantastic architecture in Quarry Bay consists of 5 connecting buildings that formed an E shaped architecture complex, centered around the courtyard. This giant architecture is a residential complex but the apartment units are small and you can best feel the density of the city when you stand in the courtyard. Each small patio is dotted with wet laundry hanging to dry, lounge chairs for sunning, and flowerpots and a common characteristic of local housing throughout Hong Kong. The facade of the building is rainbow colored, which also make this development more vibrant and lively, made it so popular among photographers for years and is gaining popularity with tourists as well. It has also become a popular filming location for Hollywood blockbusters and the most famous one is "Transformer IV"

Chun Yeung Street
We will take "ding ding" further to the area of North Point, will explore the Chun Yeung Street market - the market retains a local feel where the locals still shop nowadays. Local stores are lined on both sides of this narrow street, selling fresh fruits, vegetables, meat, and live seafood, what makes it unique is when the tram running through, people will all stop and wait until the tram is gone through.

Sunbeam Theatre
The landmark theatre in North Point has been synonymous with Cantonese opera for the past 4 decades. The theatre is designated especially for Cantonese opera performances, it is divided into a grand auditorium with 1044 seats and a small one with 240 seats as a multi-purpose theatre for stage performances. This is the last private theatre in Hong Kong for stage performances. The atmosphere in the auditorium is so different from the other public performing centers, the audience is allowed to pay a surprise visit to their idols at the backstage or dressing rooms which is the special culture of the Sunbeam Theatre.

North Point
Family-run Chinese embroidery slippers store - the last few "hand-made Chinese embroidery slippers" store in Hong Kong which was started their business in 1960. They persist in offering "Made in Hong Kong" products. (we only want to explain the history of Hong Kong, it is not an appointed shopping stop)

Causeway Bay
Then we will take "ding ding" again further down to a place called "Goose Neck Bridge" in the busiest area of Causeway Bay to share fun and experience by watching how the "beaters" helping the people in need to eliminate their enemies and misfortune by "beating the petty person". "Petty person beating" is a popular cultural ritual practice in Hong Kong who believes that "petty persons" are someone bringing bad luck, troubles or do something harmful to them. When people have no way to express their anger or hatred towards these "petty persons" they will hire the beaters to beat the "human portrait" (represents the petty persons) and do a sequence of steps to prevent them from their harassment and make sure these petty persons can no longer harm them after being beaten.
