Hong Kong Guide : SoCO – We Live

War. Starvation. Migration. Instability.
A speck of dust in the great 30s and 40s.
With a will not of their own; in the turbulence of history,
All assembled in the past shattered into nought.
Looking back,
They lived a life which spanned over generations.
Asking for little in an uneasy life, save for
The simplest, the most vital, struggling to show
We live.

If you are looking for something different and meaningful to do in Hong Kong, check out this photo exhibition organized by SoCO – a non-profit welfare organization in Hong Kong. The exhibition, titled “We Live”, seeks to help the public understand more about the life of grass roots elderly people living in poverty.

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…
