Tai Kwun is a beautifully restored area of the city. Once the old police headquarters, it has been transformed into an ex-pat heaven for afternoon drinks. It does have the slight smell of British Colonialism, I did expect to see people dressed completely in khaki,...More
Historical place with original police station and prison converted in fashion place with bars and restaurants. This bar has terrace with magnificent view over the whole historical square. Nice selection of drinks, reasonable prices for Hong Kong, free wifi.
Halfway up the mid levels escalator, this is a good place to go if you have a spare hour or two. It is the old police station in Central, with exhibitions showing the different aspects of police history such as the jail cells and police...More

Visiting Hong Kong for 10 days was shown this gem. Lots of history to be learned here. It was free to enter so could take your time going through. Not too many people. Were able to enter the cells. A must see while in Hong...More
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of
quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
