Week one: Hiking in Hong Kong

 

HKLTC organizes hiking tours to see the beautiful land of Hong Kong.

 

Lush lowlands, bamboo and pine forests, rugged mountains with panoramic sea views, and secluded beaches - this is the little-known alter ego of Hong Kong. Nearly 70 per cent of Hong Kong's total area is comprised of open land, and an incredible 40 per cent of the territory has been officially conserved in protected country parkland.

Week Two: Heritage Tour

HKLTC takes our students to enjoy Hong Kong's history, heritage and culture.

You will enjoy visit some of Hong Kong's oldest and most fascinating sights, including a walled village, a century-old temple, the ancestral hall of an original Chinese clan and an opulent stately home.

Week Three: Qi Gong Class

HKLTC takes our students to join the Qigong Class
You will gain insight into the traditional system
of exercises involving the mind, eyes,
controlled movement and breathing.
Learn how to foster your qi, your
invisible life force and body's energiser,
to improve your health and increase longevity.

Week Four: Horse Racing Class

HKLTC takes our students to the Hong Kong Jockey Club.

If it's excitement you're after then watching a dozen horses pounding down the straightaway heading for the finish line should provide your senses with a definite tingle.

VISIT THE MUST SEE PLACES

1. HKLTC takes students to the Victoria Peak

High above Hong Kong Island on the 'back of the Dragon', Victoria Peak is Hong Kong's premier visitor attraction, providing magnificent harbour and city views. Arriving late afternoon enables you to experience the dazzling panorama of Hong Kong Island, the harbour, Kowloon and the hills beyond. Later, you can thrill to the neon-dotted skyline by night. What's more, The Peak offers visitors a multitude of fantastic entertainment, dining and shopping options.

2. HKLTC students take the Peak Tram

The best way to get to the top is via the Peak Tram, a funicular railway that carves a steep 373-metre swathe up the lush mountainside. The tram has been in operation since 1888, and once competed with sedan chairs as the most popular way up. Try to get seats at the front of the tram on the right-hand side for the journey skyward. The only way to describe the views from this vantage point is "simply awesome".

3. HKLTC students visit the Peak Tower & Peak Galleria

Thrilling indoor entertainment is housed in the Peak Tower and Peak Galleria. Attractions include a hi-tech virtual-reality ride, the Peak Explorer, as well as a showcase of weird and wonderful artefacts at the Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Odditorium. Then, rub shoulders with the famous at world-renowned Madame Tussaud's wax portraits museum. With around 100 astoundingly life-like wax figures means getting up close and personal with Jackie Chan and Arnold Schwarzenegger has never been easier.

4. HKLTC students take a Peak Walk

The Peak is the perfect location to embark on several trails. For a spectacular circular walk that takes about one hour, turn right out of the Peak Tower and head for Lugard Road. To climb to even greater heights, stroll up Mount Austin Road to Victoria Peak Garden, then venture down to Aberdeen or return to Central via Old Peak Road.

VISIT COLONIAL ATTRACTIONS

1. Former French Mission Building
Located in the heart of Central district, this red-brick French Mission Building, which is over 150 years old, has green shutters, black wrought-iron details and a chapel added by French Catholic missionaries who gave the building its name. It is reputedly the location of the colony's first government house. Today, it houses the Hong Kong Court of Final Appeal.

2. Fringe Club
The Fringe Club is housed in a brick and stucco colonial-style low-rise structure built in 1913. Long before refrigerators became common household items, it was used as a cold-storage warehouse for ice and dairy products. The building has since been declared a historical monument and, in 1984, the southern segment was taken over by the Fringe Club, a hot spot for arts and crafts exhibitions, and the hosting venue for the annual Fringe Festival.

3. Foreign Correspondents' Club
In the same historic building, the Foreign Correspondents' Club (FCC) is where journalists from across the globe gather to wine, dine and gossip. The FCC has invested heavily to accentuate the lasting architectural merit of the building. The interior today, with its dark wood panelling and long bar, is a vivid reminder of more relaxed colonial times.
4. Government House
Nestled in a Mid-Levels' garden on Upper Albert Road is the former official residence of British governor in Hong Kong. Built in 1855 and extensively redesigned by the Japanese during their occupation of Hong Kong in the Second World War, 25 British governors lived here until 1997. Today it is used for fund-raising events, concerts and to entertain foreign dignitaries. The gardens of rhododendrons and azaleas are opened for public viewing four times a year.
5. HongKong Tramways
Running east and west along Hong Kong Island, these ancient trams rock, rattle and roll along the same tracks they have travelled since 1904. The tram offers one of the best views in town as it weaves through various bustling districts.
