  • 正街美食圈

    PMQ

    PMQ is a site with several layers of historical significance. It has been revitalised as a hub for creative and design industries.

    The site was listed as one of eight projects under ‘Conserving Central.’ Architecturally, it represents the typical modern style commonly found in the post-Second World War period, which is characterised by a functional and pragmatic approach on elevations and interior layout, with minimum decoration and spatial articulation.

    Renamed as PMQ, the site is now a hub for design and creative industries. Its buildings have been retained, reinforced, refurbished and upgraded for new uses. Residential units have been converted into design studios and shops, offices for creative enterprises and lodging for visiting designers. The top floor of Block B is now a roof-top restaurant with a mezzanine floor.

    Almost 100 design and creative enterprises are stationed in PMQ. Around half the tenants are in the fashion and household product design sectors with the rest in creative design categories such as fashion accessories, food, furniture, jewellery and watches, design services and design galleries. Exhibition space and event facilities are also available.

  • 正街美食圈

    Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park

    Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park is located near the vent shaft of the Western Harbour Tunnel. The land was obtained from reclamation from the sea outside Sam Kok Mar Tou.

    Dr Sun was forced out of Hong Kong by British colonial government under the pressure of the Qing Dynasty because of his leading role in Chinese revolution. Since then, many times on his way back to the mainland, he could only meet his friends and supporters aboard a boat at the present location of Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park. The park is named after Dr Sun as a result. It is also the first park in Hong Kong to name after Dr Sun to commemorate his contribution as the father of modern China.

  • 太平山頂

    The Peak

    If there is only one thing you can do in Hong Kong, go to The Peak. If you have many things to do here, still go to The Peak. The highest point on Hong Kong Island, this has been the city’s most exclusive neighbourhood since colonial times — back then it was the cooler air that attracted the rich and famous; in the post air-conditioning era, the views of one of the world’s most spectacular cityscapes keep them coming.

    That view is also what makes The Peak one of the most popular attractions in Hong Kong. By day your eyes stretch across sparkling skyscrapers and Victoria Harbour all the way to the green hills of the New Territories. In early evening this panorama melts into pink and orange before reincarnating as a dazzling galaxy of light, shimmering beneath you. And if you listen carefully enough, you can hear Asia’s world city humming below.

  • 天星小輪

    Star Ferry

    The charming Star Ferry boats have been faithfully carrying passengers from Hong Kong Island to Kowloon and back since 1888.

National Geographic rates the Star Ferry crossing as one of 50 ‘places of a lifetime’.
