Pulsing with life day or night, Causeway Bay is at the heart of the action in Hong Kong. In many ways, Causeway Bay’s journey to its present-day fame is a microcosm of Hong Kong’s story. Once a silted bay on the outskirts of Victoria City, Causeway Bay is today a frenetic shopping hub with the highest shop rents in the world. On this tour you will get the chance to watch Causeway Bay’s life story unfold in front of your eyes, as we treat you to a rich mix of colonial history, chilling ghost myths, little-known local tales, and architectural wonders. Indulge yourself in an astonishing marriage of commerce, religious, leisure and transport highlights, all crammed into this kaleidoscopic little bay.
