The tour will begin at Ying’nFlo, and the first stop will be 29m x 9m mural painting by renowned artist Josephine Rais from Berlin. Participants will then visit Old Wan Chai Post Office, before heading to a little-known spot to get a panoramic view of Hong Kong Island and Kowloon.

Other landmarks on the tour include the nearly 180-year-old Hung Shing Temple on Queen’s Road East, the historic The Pawn and the upscale Lee Tung Avenue, after which participants can get photo ops at the junction between Johnston Road and Wan Chai Road.

The tour includes a visit to a 72-year-old Micelin-recommended restaurant in the area, and will include at Canal Road flyover, the famous spot for villain-hitting services.

There will be two sessions: one in Cantonese from 12pm-2pm, and another in English at 3pm-5pm. Participation is on a first-come-first-served basis and requires registration. Each session can accommodate a maximum of 12 people.
