Discover the hangout of Dr. Sun Yat Sen and friends, where they plotted a nationwide revolution against the Imperial Qing Dynasty which resulted in modern China. The plot was planned in a delightful courtyard still exist today.
Weave through secret alleyways behind the trendy wine & dine neighbourhood of Soho, where you can also explore open street markets, old temples, art galleries, and even a prison compound! Don’t forget to ask your guide for food recommendations and insights on local specialities.
At the former administrative side of Central, pay a visit to the Chief Executive’s resident at Government House, and cool down at St John’s Cathedral, first Anglican church in the Far East. Finish with a post-run stretch next to the lion sculptures at the HSBC Main Building.
This tour is recommended to start outside rush hour (avoid weekdays 8-930am, 12-130pm, 5pm onwards), since Central can get super busy and you will otherwise be slaloming through the crowd.
