Research and Tour Development
This is the core part of Walk in Hong Kong’s business. We develop and provide walking tours around Hong Kong that can be focused on different themes, such as architecture, traditional Chinese festivals, food or music. The tours are aimed at foreign visitors as much as local Hong Kongers thirsty for more knowledge of their own home.
Curating Cultural Initiatives, Events and Campaigns
Our events are flexible and reflect contemporary Hong Kong. For example, we organised special tours of the main protest site at the city’s Umbrella Movement in 2014. Also, riding on the popularity of the local film “Dot 2 Dot” (2014), we teamed up with the film’s director in Spring 2015 and conducted a series of ‘pilgrimages’ for the public to the movie’s shooting locations.
Corporate Training, Team Building and Consulting
We are able to offer innovative team building activities that are as firmly grounded in Hong Kong culture as they are highly customised to suit specific training goals. We can also provide a wide range of Hong Kong expertise thanks to the diverse background of our team members. As examples, we can provide film location scouting or advice on filming documentaries about particular Hong Kong subjects.
Lectures and Seminars
Our work does not only involve walking around the streets of Hong Kong. We are also happy to take our skills and local knowledge to share with classrooms and corporate firms around Hong Kong. For instance, we’ve given local history talks to the Rotary Club of Wan Chai and students at St Paul’s Co-Educational College.
Youth Training and Development Programme
Passing on our love of Hong Kong to the younger generations is a key mission of Walk in Hong Kong. For example, our staff trained over 40 students from The Chinese University of Hong Kong as heritage tour guides in 2014. These new guides then took youth groups to visit places in Hong Kong that the youngsters would otherwise not see.
