Aside from all the hustle and bustle in Wan Chai, the place is also a hidden gem for authentic designs, craftsmanship and interesting local stories. Join us to explore the lesser-known side of Wan Chai in the upcoming tailor-made guided tours curated by #ddHK and iDiscover.

#ddWalker highlights the architectural gems in this neighbourhood. We bring you to the oldest surviving post office, the revitalised Wan Chai Market, Lee Tung Avenue (a.k.a. "Wedding card street"), the award-winning Blue House cluster, revitalised Mallory Street tenement buildings, and the circular commercial building Hopewell. You get to see all types of buildings and learn all about city design and heritage in Hong Kong in this tour.

Design District Hong Kong (#ddHK) is a 3-year Creative Tourism Project (2018 onwards) presented by Tourism Commission, organised by Hong Kong Design Centre (HKDC). The open-air design district gallery was curated under the theme of "Connected City: A Love Letter to Hong Kong" in the first year. In 2019, the theme is "Pop! Get Inspired at Every Turn". It is a fantastic blueprint for the visitors and the public to explore the city in a brand new way.
