The Hong Kong Tourism Board offers a great introduction to local culture through its Cultural Kaleidoscope program called "Meet the People," in which local authorities give free, 1-hour lectures, classes, and seminars on a wide range of subjects from Cantonese opera to tai chi. During the cooler winter months, HKTB arranges free guided excursions to Hong Kong's rural areas. Several Hong Kong hotels, including the InterContinental, the Peninsula, and Four Seasons, also offer cultural experiences for their guests
