Hi everyone, I’m Carmen and I am one of the tour guides at Hong Kong Free Tours.

Born and raised in Hong Kong, I am proud to call myself a true local Hong Konger. When you hear me talk though, you will also get a hint of various accents from the other places I’ve lived in over the years: Australia and the USA (New York). When I returned to Hong Kong a few years ago, it was time for me to rediscover my familiar-yet-changed hometown and see things from a different perspective.

I have a real passion for telling and sharing the Hong Kong story, which is why I do this on my day off from my full-time office job! When I was young, I wanted to become a diplomat but, as we will explain on the tour, Hong Kong does not control its foreign relation matters and has no embassy… so I find it extremely meaningful to be able to be an ambassador of Hong Kong in this alternate way, especially in this defining era.

My Profile

Interests: Craft beer, podcasts, TV, museums, hiking

Occupation: All I can tell you is that I work in one of the most iconic buildings in Hong Kong

Language: English, Cantonese, Mandarin, very very rusty German

Where is your favorite spot in Hong Kong and why? Kwai Chung Plaza (Kwai Fong MTR station) – There is something about this packed shopping mall filled with tiny boutiques, snack stalls and random shops that creates a unique buzz

Where have you traveled to? Without listing out all the countries I’ve travelled to, my top 5 places so far are: Cuba, Israel, Sri Lanka, Italy, Thailand. And I would like to explore Central Asia region next year!
