Tour Information

This tour brings together several iconic locations in Hong Kong's Central District. All of these destinations are linked by their affiliation to the Feng Shui doctrine, which is a notion that find its origins in ancient Chinese culture.

Feng Shui is about living in harmony with the environment and the landscapes in order to not disturb this forces and create positive energies.

According to this belief, when the harmony with nature (i.e. between buildings and nature) is disturbed, then this can also have an impact on the natural forces and the spiritual world around us.
In this context, there is a striking parallel between the forces of nature (the mountains, the forest, ...) and the city and its human constructions, which are not natural and are antagonistic. Thus, during the construction of Hong Kong over the years, the architecture tries to adapt to this environment in order to keep the harmony between the forces as well as possible.

You will see that most of the places we have chosen that are part of this Feng Shui theme are places of power or places of political and economic importance, where decisions are crucial. So in creating these buildings, the architects had in mind to allow the energies to have a positive influence on these centres of power.

Thus, in Hong Kong it is considered very important to preserve this balance of forces with special buildings, which we visited during this tour!
