Hill Town Charm – Food & Culture Tour in Sai Ying Pun

Tour Info

The quaint hill town of Sai Ying Pun and Shek Tong Tsui blend the old and new, boasting banyan trees, shop cats, and traditional craft stores side-by-side with street art, trendy bars, and hip cafés. What makes Sai Ying Pun so endearing is its small hill town vibe, yet just two subway stations away from the hustle and bustle of Central. It still has a lot of old school charm, where craftsmen make bamboo steamers, bake egg rolls, and preserve salted fishes in the traditional fashion. It is now also mixed with some of the best and hippest eateries in the city. Come join us for a journey amid the historical buildings, slopes, alleys, and stairs of Sai Ying Pun!
