Hong Kong

Jason Wordie Walking tours

So you might wonder, how come I explored the depths of Yau Ma Tei over the last days? Well, that’s because I joined one of Jason Wordie’s walking tours. Jason is a local historian who knows Hong Kong inside out, as he read history at the University of Hong Kong, published several books on Hong Kong and Macao and also writes regularly columns for the South China Morning Post.

He only does a few tours every month (so check out his website and sign up early) and the tours are aimed at people that are new to Hong Kong as well as long-time residents. He knows a lot about Hong Kong, so you won’t be disappointed, even if you’ve been exploring the city for several years (as I had done).

I joined his Yau Ma Tei tour and really enjoyed that he showed me parts (especially in the East) that I’ve never been to – and I had no idea about the military background of Yau Ma Tei or some of the details about the Tin Hau temple.
