Hi. I'm Emily. As a young woman, I graduated from the Guilin Tourism Institute and have worked as a tour guide ever since.

Meet a Local Host®

My Name is Lyona. It's my pleasure to welcome you to my home city and I look forward to sharing my knowledge with you so you get the most out of your stay. I have worked with Monograms for many years and with over 32 years of guiding experience I know all the hot spots in Hong Kong.

Temple of Ten Thousand Buddha’s

The name isn’t entirely accurate—there are closer to 13,000 Buddha statues in the temple, as well as countless, larger ones lining the steps to the temple. They come in all shapes, sizes, and sorts—with one even riding a giant blue dog. There’s also a lovely 9-story pagoda beside the temple.

Luk Yu Tea House

A dim sum restaurant serves a wide variety—often dozens—of small dishes and Luk Yu Tea House is perhaps the best place to dive in. Dumplings of all sorts are a typical dim sum offering, as are rice rolls, steamed meatballs and vegetables, spring rolls, and sweets. Try as many types as your appetite will allow, including something unusual.

Hong Kong Heritage Museum

The largest museum in the city, this is a wonderful place to learn about the cultural history of Hong Kong and China. Visitor favorites include the colorful costumes of the Cantonese Opera Heritage Hall and the sculptures and early art of the T. T. Tsui Gallery.

Yuen Po Street Bird Garden

The gathering place for all things bird, you don’t have to be an ornithologist to enjoy a look around the Yuen Po Street Bird Garden. There are dozens of markets selling birds, cages of mahogany and teak, and bird feed. You can watch as purveyors use chopsticks to feed crickets and nectar to their birds. Or sit back and listen to the songs from the birds brought by the proud owners who are there just to hang out.

Kowloon Walled City Park

Immerse yourself in this park to get a piece of history and a taste of modern life at the same time. Once an imperial walled city, Kowloon contains many relics from those days as well as attractive gardens and pavilions in its eight sections. Rise early and you might get to see city elders practicing tai chi here.

Tsim Sha Tsui Waterfront

There are numerous museums in the district, as well as Hong Kong’s famous Clock Tower, but the real reason to venture here is to see the city skyline. The lights and skyscrapers are on full display from Tsim Sha Tsui. As a bonus, the city puts on a laser-light show each night at 8 pm.

Lan Kwai Fong

Looking for an evening full of entertainment? Head over to Lan Kwai Fong, one of Hong Kong’s most popular nightlife hot spots and home to over 100 restaurants, bars, clubs and shops. Depending on the time of year you visit, you may come across one of their carnivals or major festival celebrations.

Lam Tsuen Wishing Tree

The name is a bit misleading, as people may no longer throw their “wish-paper” streamers into the tree. However, the home of the Lam Tsuen tree is still popular due to its history of inspiring people to literally lay out their dreams. You can now buy wish papers from vendors, write on them, and tie them to a rack at the site. There are also fortune-tellers nearby.

Temple Street Night Market

This bustling night market is open from 4 pm to midnight daily. Here you can find all types of bargains including casual clothes and curios. You'll also often see fortune-tellers and professional Chinese chess players. The market really picks up after 7 pm.
