City Walks

Discover Asia’s historic districts through the lens of locals.

A collection of carefully curated self-guided city walks, created by locals who handpick sites and craft them into easily navigated routes. They know the places that are worth a detour. Not just the temples and monuments, but also popular cafes, local hangouts and lesser-known sites. Take your pick from our different types of walks​—text, photo, audio and video—or explore a neighbourhood with its dedicated illustrated map, an artistic ode to the spirit of place.

Learn as you walk, support local businesses, communicate with cultural confidence, and explore like a true local.
