About Walk in Hong Kong

Walk in Hong Kong is the city's leading cultural enterprise. We are known for our wonderful storytelling. We make what might otherwise be dry history lessons into memorable experiences, rooted in Hong Kong’s people and culture. Our walking tours are well loved by travellers, corporates, schools, families, and locals alike.

Coming from a variety of professional backgrounds, each of our knowledgable guides has plenty of personal stories to share about this fair city. Most importantly, they all live a shared passion to promote Hong Kong beyond what's in the usual guidebooks.

Our vision does not stop there. While we are not an NGO, we are a company with a strong social mission. Despite our small scale, we are an influential advocate for heritage conservation and driving social changes. In 2016, our team successfully lobbied for a Grade 1 historic building status for State Theatre in North Point, helping preserve one of the city's most important theatrical venues.

Our vision

Build something that Hong Kong has never seen before.

Our Team

Nurses, architects, government officials, academics... Our tour guides come from all walks of life, yet they share the same passion — telling you the city's mesmerizing tales (we do have a certified hypnotist on board!) and their own equally fascinating stories. Learn more about our co-founders, team members and some of our guides here:


Paul Chi-yuen Chan

Co-founder & CEO

An erstwhile academic, a former ministerial aide, and a man of finance in his previous incarnation, Paul is principally an avid traveller. Outside of work, he can be found temple or village-hopping. By founding Walk in Hong Kong, Paul is determined to show the world that his home turf is not just a fishing-village-turned-metropolis, since there are actually more mesmerizing stories to tell!


Haider Kikabhoy


Born into a family of natural storytellers, Haider grew up spellbound by the tales he heard from Hong Kong’s past century. He stalks the city’s streets in an imagined time machine, bent on resurrecting fabled buildings from the ashes of time. Whimsical and wry, his walks are a jukebox of Hong Kong’s eccentricities.


Chung-wah Chow


Chungwah is a travel writer in both English and Chinese. She’s co-authored Lonely Planet guides to Hong Kong, China and Taiwan, as well as written for the BBC, CNN and various Asian media outlets. She enjoys ikebana, chado and yoga. As a careful yet adventurous traveller, she explores haunted house at midnight, challenges herself for a volcano excursion and graveyard is on her top visit list!

November 7, 2019

亂世往往是一面鏡子,讓眾生相表露無遺。 過去數月的社會動盪,對不同行業都帶來打擊,也衍生出兩種截然不同的應對態度: 一批人只忙於顧算自己生意的得失,一邊呼天搶地埋怨,一邊條件反射式要政府幫這個、補貼那個,心態就如刻舟求劍,只一廂情願社會盡快「回復平靜」,好讓自己能像以往賺個盤滿缽滿; 另一批人固然也…

原來《獅子山下》推出後十幾年曾經無人問津,讓這首歌「復甦」的,是1997年。吳俊雄博士說,「97年香港差不多存亡之際,如果明天你要逃難或者死去,你想留低或帶走甚麼?人們便想回來,真的是《獅子山下》那一段:既是同舟不如相共濟,總算是歡笑多於唏噓。」 在香港難過的六月以後,相信我們每一位對「同舟人 誓相…
