Why should I book THE MINI Private Walking Tour of Kennedy Town?
Because it’s a great way to get to know the real grassroots Hong Kong by exploring a small and rich old neighborhood rather than ticking off attractions on a bucket list. It’s also a budget-friendly way to a private tour that will jump start and enrich your Hong Kong experience. Our MINI walks offer:
- extremely flexible–book on a date that YOU choose!
- expert food and culture hosts
- experience Hong Kong like a local by exploring an off-the-beaten track neighborhood
ADDED PLUS: Afternoon in Kennedy Town hosts live in the neighborhood so you’re really going to get an insider perspective
What and how much will we be eating?
You’ll be tasting some Hong Kong local foods and snacks typically eaten at the afternoon break time, including buns and egg tarts, iced or hot milk tea or “coffee-tea”, and Hong Kong style French toast.
The ticket price also includes a sunset draft beer or glass of house wine at a lovely waterfront cafe.
What about vegetarians? (gluten-free, allergies, pork free, other dietary restrictions)
While we can’t make special arrangements for replacement food on our Afternoon in Kennedy Town, the good news is that most of what we will be sampling is going to be fine for vegetarians who can eat eggs and dairy.
Unfortunately, the afternoon treats in Hong Kong are not vegan-friendly, nor are they gluten free. If you have a dietary restriction and want to have a great Hong Kong food experiences, we recommend you book a private food walk with us.

The Kennedy Town Story
Kennedy Town is among the few remaining districts on Hong Kong island where hole-in-the-wall noodle joints and traditional tea houses outnumber clothing stores and U.S. coffee shops.—Financial Times
Sitting on the far western end of Hong Kong island, connected to downtown only by bus or tram, Kennedy Town was the city’s underbelly for many years, home to the slaughterhouse, the contagious diseases hospital, the public mortuary, the docks, and a population of Hong Kong’s working class.
The hospital and slaughterhouse are long gone (though there are docks nearby, fun to walk around on!) and now that the new MTR train is up and running, Kennedy Town’s only a few short minutes from downtown. Its relaxed, village like atmosphere, the streets and terraces filled with tenements, and its magnificent location right on the edge of Victoria Harbour are making Kennedy Town the Hong Kong neighborhood of the moment.
Kennedy Town’s long relative isolation means that it still has lots of things absent from the more developed parts of Hong Kong: quirky walk-up and wrap-around corner buildings, street food hawkers, public housing estates, century old banyan trees, and other visible markers of the city’s nearly 175 year old history–including its boundary stone.
It’s a wonderful place to feel what Hong Kong used to be like, and get a sense of where its going.
