Hong Kong Guide : 2014 Winner – TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence – Hong Kong Walking Tours

We did it again! Big Foot Tour has been awarded the 2014 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for our Hong Kong Walking Tours! Thank you, our dearest walking tour guests, for granting us this special moment.

Hong Kong Tours - Big Foot Tour - TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2014 - TripAdvisor - Hong Kong Walking Tours

We have been some of the luckiest people in the world, waking up every day to explore Hong Kong and make friends with awesome travelers from all over the world. Together, we conquered the zealous sun, horrible humidity and/or an over-generous pour of rain. We broke cultural barriers, exchanging our perspectives on big topics such as history, language and politics. We bonded over finer things in life, from local delicacies to that perfect drink at our favourite secret spots.

Some call it fate. Some say it’s affinity. However, we know that all these interactions would not have been possible if you had not trust us with your valuable time in Hong Kong. We can’t say it enough -

Thank you for going on a walking tour with us. We hold every tour close to our hearts and we are very grateful for the precious opportunity to share with you our passion for Hong Kong.

Thank you for taking that extra time and effort to craft a review for us on TripAdvisor. We’ll keep improving. Your words mean a lot to us as we want to be the Hong Kong walking tour company that you are always proud of.

Thank you for extending your warm hands of friendship. When we next meet, we’ll continue to share our travel adventures, laugh over silly life moments, and for some of you, till our next round of Chicken Feet, Snake Soup and Duck’s tongues. =D

Walk it. Feel it. Love it.

Hong Kong Guide : Seeing Hong Kong with Big Foot Tour!

Here’s a lovely write-up by travel writer and photographer, Sue Frause, who went on our Hong Kong Private Tour recently.

One of my favorite ways to see a city is on a walking tour. After doing a fair amount of research before our trip to Hong Kong, I signed my friend Sandy and I up for a private tour with Big Foot Tour. It turned out to be our favorite daytime activity…

Hong Kong Guide : MTR Station Names

Hong Kong has one of the most efficient MTR (subway) system in the world. You head to Mongkok station for our famous Ladies Market, travel to Kowloon Station for a panoramic view of Hong Kong from our tallest building (ICC) and check out the magnificent 10,000 Buddha statues located near Sha Tin Station.

Wait a minute, did you know:

Mongkok means “Prosperous Corner”, Kowloon refers to “Nine Dragons” and Sha Tin means “Sandfield?”

Here’s a literal translation of our MTR station names by Justin Moe:

Hong Kong Guide : Mahjong

Think you’ve heard all about Hong Kong’s love for Mahjong?

Check this out: Spotted at IFC, here’s a wallpaper made from the tiles!

Did you know, the origin of Mahjong has been a much debated topic. One story suggests that Confucius was the one who developed this game! As a bird lover, he named the game after the sparrow, known as “Maa Chuk” in Cantonese (or “Ma Que” in Chinese).

Mahjong is a cultural game in Hong Kong. During a wedding banquet, it is very common for guests to play the game while waiting for food. There are also many related superstitions, such as bagging the best seats, carrying lucky charms or even… changing underwear after losing a game!
