Lanson Place Hotel partners with Little Adventures in Hong Kong

Hong Kong’s leading luxury boutique hotel teams with the city’s premier bespoke food & culture walk company to provide guests authentic local travel experiences and flavors with “Sundays in Wan Chai”.

June 10, 2014, HONG KONG­ Lanson Place Hotel, Hong Kong is proud to enter an exciting partnership with Little Adventures in Hong Kong. From June 15th, Hong Kong’s premier food and cultural walks company will give hotel guests priority booking for the hugely popular “Sundays in Wan Chai” walk. For two and a half hours every Sunday morning, Lanson Place guests can join an expert host from Little Adventures to experience an enduringly classic Hong Kong neighborhood in an intimate small­group setting.

Wan Chai, one of the city’s oldest districts, is a microcosm of Hong Kong. Little Adventures in Hong Kong has created an exciting route for Lanson Place guests that leads through twisting streets and alleys, where 50 year old noodle vendors thrive beside sleek new Michelin­star eateries and turn of the century tenements sit in the shadow of luxury skyscrapers under construction. The small group (no more than 5) will explore Wan Chai on foot as well as via Hong Kong’s famed trams, stopping along the way for several bites of street food and local snacks. Also on the itinerary: a Chinese medicine shop, a chat with the fabled “beat­the­petty­people” Chinese voodoo practitioners, and a visit to the city’s most notorious haunted house.

“We are lucky to be in the centre of such a diverse and historic neighborhood and with Little Adventures in Hong Kong’s uniquely, engaging walks our guests will experience tasty, visual, streetside experiences and insights into what makes this city tick!” said Lanson Place Hotel general manager Ian Brewis.

Little Adventures in Hong Kong, tapped by CNN Hong Kong to help launch famed travel journalist Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown series last fall, is well­recognized as the city’s leading private food and culture walk service. Run by a dedicated and passionate team of distinguished bilingual food and journalism professionals, its five experts include former and current writers from The New York Times, the South China Morning Post, HK Tatler, National Geographic Traveler and a Cordon Bleu trained chef. The company’s mission is to give Hong Kong visitors and expats a unique and sophisticated alternative to the usual tourism offerings.

“Lanson Place Hotel is a terrific fit for our brand of intimate, experiential travel,” said Daisann McLane, founder and managing director of Little Adventures in Hong Kong. “They share ourvalues and understand that giving guests a sense of place through authentic local adventures is as important as providing superb accommodation.”

Lanson Place guests will enjoy priority booking for Little Adventures in Hong Kong’s “Sundays in Wan Chai” directly through the hotel’s concierge, and will receive a gift of artisanal local products should they book a private walk with Little Adventures in Hong Kong. Little Adventures in Hong Kong’s private clients will receive a complimentary room upgrade should they choose to stay at Lanson Place Hotel during their Hong Kong visit.
