Your first stop is the Yuem Yuen Institute, which demonstrates the significance of contributions from Confucian, Taoist and Buddhist to the local society. Then it's out into the countryside, past banana plantations and up the tallest mountain in Hong Kong, Tai Mo Shan, for a panoramic view of Hong Kong Island and the industrial town of Tsuen Wan to the south. 'The Land Between' continues heading north through the lush, rural landscapes passing both Shek Kong and Lam Chuen Valley enroute to the traditional rural market at Luen Wo. Here you can browse among colorful stalls piled high with dried fish, herbs and vegetables, fresh fruit and flowers - a pungent combination.

Then it's time to head to the border of Hong Kong and China, stopping at Luk Keng. Close by is a Hakka Village and a bird sanctuary where Chinese pond herons and night herons nest. Next, it's a trip through the Plover Cove Country park, and on to the fishing village of Sam Mun Tsai to see how local fisherfolk breed fish in submerged cages.

Finally, your tour will return to Hong Kong via the new industrial town of Tai Po, the Chinese University and Sha Tin, once a sleepy village and now the site of an impressive new town. In Sha Tin, visit the state-of-the-art Sha Tin Racecourse (this stop will be omitted on race days). The tour concludes with a Chinese lunch at a popular restaurant in the New Territories.

Susan is just the best tour guide l have had anywhere in the world including Europe, China, Vietnam, USA,Australia, England, she knows her stuff and presents it in a very professional but personal manner. I recommend this tour to everybody that l know that goes to Hong Kong and when back at the hotel l also recommend the tour to people that we met during dinner ect. The Hakka village is an absolute must see and the main reason why l bought my wife to HK with me this time, thanks Susan.
