About Walk in Hong Kong
Starting out in 2013 as a venture among a few friends to bring the culture of walking tours to Hong Kong, Walk in Hong Kong has since transformed into the city’s leading cultural enterprise. We specialize in curating memorable experiences — be it tours or immersive events, in-person or virtual — that tell the mesmerizing stories of our bustling metropolis.
Build something that Hong Kong has never seen before.
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!
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.
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!

侯晴同學係第一屆「恒隆．築跡——年輕建築師計劃」嘅參加者，回想起喺計劃入面嘅所見所學，佢仍感獲益良多。 侯晴同學自細就好鍾意畫畫，直至 15、16 歲嘅時候，原本單純熱愛藝術嘅佢突然被建築學深深吸引住，因為佢覺得建築就好似係一座巨大嘅雕像，只不過佢裏面嘅空間運用要再進一步有效地規劃。由嗰陣開始，侯晴…
