The grounds of HKU are well maintained and some of the buildings have beautiful architecture. It's a nice break from the hustle and bustle. It's easy to spend a couple hours exploring around. The cafes offer a variety of western and Chinese foods.

Take the MTR to Sai Ying Pun station (not HKU as you might assume. Exiting the station, turn left and walk perhaps 3 blocks. The University is on the right up a long flight of stairs. The main building, known as the T.T. Tsui building, houses a small museum and art gallery. No photos are allowed. The museum exhibits were... More

We had a purpose to visit the university, but the gardens are beautiful and there are older buildings that are ver picturesque and beautiful. Try the coffee shop cafe and order ginger coffee... Everyone seems hooked

I went there after they opened the new MTR station. Easier access than before. When I was there, I came across more PRC students (Putonghua speakers) than local Hong Kongers. I felt confused.

Great environment and the staff were very friendly too. There is a vegetarian restaurant which serves in a buffet style but you have to pay according to the weight of the food you took. Pretty nice experience and is worth a visit if you are near Pokfulam, otherwise, there are many more attractions in Hong Kong waiting for you.

This is a great weekend outing. You can hire bikes at Sha Tin at the river behind the New Town Plaza and ride all the way Tolo Harbour to Tai Po. Stop at Hong Kong University for a caffeine break at one of the many cafes along the waterfront or even stop for lunch before riding to Tai Po Park.... More

It might be a bit of a hassle to find yourself around since with all the redirections due to the renovations. you might want to wear a mask because of the dust.

I had meetings there and as it was my first visit I had a walk around. Be prepared for lots and lots of steps since this is wrapped around hills. I stayed at Robert Black's on the campus and it was very convenient and comfortable. My meetings were in brand new buildings, which still have to work out their air... More

The University of Hong Kong isn't a conventional attraction nor a place visited by many who come to Hong Kong. One of the things you can see here that is open to the public is the University Museum and Art Gallery, which has a nice collection of art and antiquities. The Museum and Art Gallery is housed in the Fung... More

I went here as a guide from my hometown and bring university students to visit this university. It was a good university I guessed. It was huge, maybe a complete lab (since I never seen any before). Overall, it's just a good university
