What to Expect
Feng shui is a 3,000-year-old system of geomantic divination, teaching humans how to achieve harmony with the forces of nature and change, thereby gaining well-being and prosperity.
In modern-day Hong Kong, you would be forgiven for thinking that feng shui would be dismissed as mumbo-jumbo. But, many of the soaring apartment blocks and offices that puncture the skyline were laid out in accordance with its principles.
This 3.5-hour tour looks at some of them, providing an unusual way to explore the city. Start with a ride to one of the viewpoints of Kowloon heights, overlooking Victoria Harbour and the old Kai Tak runway. Learn how Hong Kong’s mountains flanking the Kowloon Peninsular work to create what is known as “Dragon Den,” or “ good feng shui.”
Feng shui principles flourish amid the hi-tech towers of Downtown Hong Kong, obeying millennia-old building codes. Stop at the China Resources Building in Wanchai commercial district to discover a unique garden. Proceed to the harbor front of Admiralty district to admire the headquarters of the Hong Kong Government, and learn how feng shui influenced its construction.
A short ride to Statue Square in Hong Kong’s main commercial and financial district will reveal the prevalence of feng shui principles and beliefs in skyscrapers such as the HSBC building, Bank of China and Standard Chartered Bank around Statue Square.
