About Walk in Hong Kong

Walk in Hong Kong is 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.

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 skills transcend the real and virtual world, and allow us to curate equally engaging journeys both offline and online. 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.

Walk in Hong Kong began life in 2013 as a startup aiming to introduce walking tours to Hong Kong. Over the past few years, we have created a number of firsts — we have led Hong Kong’s first wheelchair-friendly walking tour, designed Hong Kong’s first gamified walking tour, and organized Hong Kong’s first secondary school level architectural education programme. Entrepreneurial spirit is deeply embedded in the company’s DNA.

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!
