As you explore this WW2 battlefield trail with your knowledgeable and passionate guide, get an in-depth account of the important battle between British troops and Japanese invaders that occurred at this strategically important location. This small-group tour is limited to eight people, ensuring a more personalized, comprehensive and memorable learning experience.

On this 4-hour tour, learn about the important battle that occurred on December 12, 1941 on the Wong Nai Chung Gap, a strategic World War 2 battlefield trail in Hong Kong. After meeting your guide at an easily accessible location in central Hong Kong, you’ll be driven approximately 15 minutes to the Wong Nai Chung Gap.

Follow your guide on a walking tour along this carefully maintained battlefield trail, and hear detailed stories about the 18-day fighting campaign that occurred between local soldiers and their British and Canadian allies against Japanese invaders.

Along the way, see several WW2 defensive and offensive battleground spots such as pillboxes, underground bunkers and anti-aircraft positions, all of which played prominent roles in the fighting. Your guide will also show you the location where Warrant Officer John Osborn of the Canadian Army’s Winnipeg Grenadiers won the Victoria Cross, the highest gallantry award from the British Commonwealth and the only one awarded during the battle for Hong Kong.

Your comprehensive walk will last approximately three hours and will take you through a series of steps and hills featuring several stations of historical importance. Whether you’re a Hong Kong local or a visitor, this enlightening and educational experience is one you won’t forget.
