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 to the city's leading cultural enterprise. We specialize in curating memorable experiences 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 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...

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

Co-founder

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.
