World War 2 Walking Tours

Hong Kong Island & Kowloon

Many people in Hong Kong, visitors and residents alike, are surprised to learn that the territory was the scene of a short but very bloody battle at the end of 1941. It often seems that the larger – and more famous – actions such as the attack on Pearl Harbour and the Singapore campaign overshadow the events of December 1941 in Hong Kong.

But the fact remains that the then Colony saw a very hard struggle between the British and their allied defenders, and their Japanese aggressors, of 18 days duration before the British surrender on Christmas Day. There then followed 3 years and 8 months of Japanese occupation before they in turn surrendered.

It also comes as a surprise to some people to learn that many of Hong Kong’s wartime relics and defence works survived the 1941 battle, the subsequent Japanese occupation and post-war reconstruction and development of Hong Kong. These traces can still be seen in many areas of the territory. We have designed a number of walks which cover in detail aspects of this fascinating period of Hong Kong’s history. Please see the detailed descriptions which accompany each of these walks.
