Hong Kong Architecture Walking Tours

Hong Kong Architectural Tours can focus on the key contemporary buildings or for example on the major skyscrapers. The Hong Kong Architecture Tour can last from a few hours to a few days and can be by foot or a mix of transport modes such as underground or by tram.

e-architect can provide information on geographical areas and building types to assist your tour preparations. For example a group of architects interested in Hong Kong housing could be provided with information allowing a tailored tour itinerary to be agreed prior to their visit to China. The architectural walking tours tend to start in the city centre but our guides possibly can collecte groups from their hotel if requested.
