Discover the Architectural Heritage of Central
About the Tour
This experience takes you through 180 years of Hong Kong in terms of architecture, condensed in the district of Central.
Places of interest include: the colonial compound of Law and Order (Tai Kwun), traditional Chinese place of religious and community life (Man Mo Temple), the oldest surviving open-air market (Graham Street Market), the world's longest elevated covered walkway (Mid-levels Escalator) and 1950's Modernist' manifestation of 'Form Follows Function' (PMQ & Central Market).
Hong Kong, a city of 1,106 km² with 7.507 million people, has transformed from a fishing village to one of the most vibrant cosmopolitans of the world. Situated at the southern coast of China, the city is the conglomerate of more than 180 years of western and eastern influences, which are often contradictory and yet harmoniously integrated.
The manifestation of such layers of influence is evident in the architectural heritage of the Central district, the historic centre of commerce, politics and culture since 1841. Join me for the microscopic view of Hong Kong in 1.5 hours.
