Wanderlust Walks Hong Kong was started in early 2018 by your storyteller Alex. Originally, her tours had a more general cultural and historical approach until she started doing the official tours for Hong Kong’s one and only street art festival HKWallls. She decided it was time to focus on her passion for street art and to share it with visitors and locals alike: Wanderlust Walks Hong Kong Street Art Tours was born.
To Alex, sharing a passion goes beyond simply knowing the locations of the art and pointing out the artists’ names! It’s all about the techniques, the making of, the artists’ backgrounds and the stories behind the walls. In order to do that, Alex always stays on top with what’s going on within the Hong Kong street art scene: talking regularly to the artists, seeking out the walls while they are being painted, attending exhibition openings, taking pictures and documenting the status of street art and currently also researching a book on HK’s street art. Taking a tour with Alex therefore provides you with an in-depth insight into HK’s street art scene.
And have we mentioned yet that Alex holds an official Hong Kong Tourist Guide Pass? So along the way, in case you are wondering about local customs, historical buildings or simply where to grab a typical snack, Alex has you covered!
Don’t hesitate and come on a tour with Alex and discover Hong Kong’s colorful, artsy side off the beaten track.
A word on Wanderlust Walks and Social Media: As we all know, taking care of social media outlets takes up a lot of time and for a small undertaking as Wanderlust Walks currently still is, it is impossible to properly maintain all these outlets. we’ve never been good with Facebook, never used Twitter or Pinterest. we're currently working on a better Flickr presence. Over the years, Instagram has become Alex's favorite app since it allows her to quickly and easily share her favorite street art pics and news. So, according to the old saying “choose your battles”, you’ll currently find her most active on her Instagram accounts Streetartorama, WanderlustWalksHongKong and, a little less frequently, on HongKongStreetArtTours, usually combined with a quick automatic upload to her Facebook account WanderlustWalks.
