Hong Kong Foodie has launched a Tai Po Market Foodie Tour. Its third culinary excursion will take food lovers off the beaten track to uncover six family-run eateries serving Hong Kong specialities in the suburban new town of Tai Po Market. 

"Tai Po Market is the perfect destination for our newest Foodie Tour. Most importantly, it is home to some of Hong Kong’s favorite foodie haunts. Our goal is to help participants navigate this less visited neighborhood and make these local eateries more accessible, especially to non-Cantonese speakers,” says Cecilia Leung, Founder and Director of Hong Kong Foodie.

On this four-hour guided walking tour, aside from indulging in foodie treasures, participants will also explore historical and cultural sites in the backstreets of Tai Po Market, learning about its agricultural past and its transformation into today’s developed new town. It offers an opportunity for visitors to be immersed in this charming part of the New Territories and experience life like a true Hong Kong native.

Tai Po Market Foodie Tour has been selected by the Hong Kong Tourism Board as an approved tour product in its New Tour Product Development Scheme, a programme that aims to offer unique discoveries and authentic experience to Hong Kong visitors.

“We are delighted that Tai Po Market Foodie Tour is recognised and supported by the Hong Kong Tourism Board,” says Leung. “We look forward to introducing travellers to some of Hong Kong’s best kept culinary secrets and providing them an opportunity to experience our living culture.”

Tai Po Market Foodie Tour operates on Fridays departing at 3 pm. The inaugural tour departs on 29 May, 2015. Tickets are HK$890 for adult foodies (aged 15 and above), and HK$640 for Young Foodies (aged 5 to 14), and can be purchased online at www.hongkongfoodietours.com.
