TYCOONS & TRIADS, TEMPLES & TENEMENTS, TEMPTATION & TITILATION

The statistics show Hong Kong to be one of the safest cities in the world and crime really is very much the exception to the
rule, despite the efforts of the movie industry and popular writers to portray the opposite. Nevertheless, over the past 172
years, we have still managed to produce a few infamous criminals and the odd sensational crime. During this afternoon stroll
from Causeway Bay via Wan Chai to Central on Hong Kong Island you will learn about contract killings, vice dens, corrupt
policemen, political assassinations and much, much more.

However, we won’t be concentrating solely on Hong Kong’s darker side as our route will take in numerous historical sites as
well as places of religious worship. There will also be brief detours through some of Hong Kong’s famed market streets.
Indeed, this tour comes with the guarantee that even long term residents will be able to stock up on useful trivia, as we will
boldly go where few have trod….

In order to really get into the spirit of things, the outing will even make a stop for “refreshments” at a historic establishment
about half way through the walk and we finish at a well hidden watering hole in SoHo as the sun sets to allow us the
possibility to review the day over a happily priced beverage….

Note:
It should be stressed that this is an "adults only" outing. Not only will we spend time in locales where under-18s
are actually denied entry, but the 'in-walk narrative' might also contain references and descriptions of a graphic,
violent, gratuitous and - even - sexual nature....
