Take a journey of discovery and nostalgia as you encounter tradesmen and women at work in some of the oldest and most traditional industries in Hong Kong. The Sunset Survivors Yau Ma Tei Tour takes guests to visit a fourth-generation-owned pawnshop, two elderly brothers who continue to hand hammer copperware pots and gongs, little Ms. Ho who makes and sells traditional Chinese weighing scales, and the mysterious letter writer in the famous Jade Market, who quietly taps away at his 50 year old typewriter. Along the way, she recounts intriguing stories about the lives of these wonderful 'survivors' and how they have seen their businesses change in the rapidly modernising city of Hong Kong. Tours last for 2 hours and are capped at 4 people per group. Please wear comfortable walking shoes and bring some money with you if you wish to purchase some handcrafted wares from the survivors.
