It's interesting for a fact that it's a good vantage point over Kowloon and the bay, so nice place to snap some nice photos. Sure, you can include flower statue too.

Overall, it is a simple square with a golden bauhinia. There is nothing special in it. However, it is nice photo stop if it is on your way. You will not miss a great deal if you have not been able to be there.

Other than a good photo opportunity not quite sure why this is an attractions. It's very best lots of people selling photos. Much better to stand by the bay and look at the sea. Can get the mtr to wancai or get the star ferry

The square is located next to the HK Convention and Exhibition Centre facing the Wan Chai waterfront. To get her you get out in MTR Wan Chai Station Exit A5. Walk across the footbridge, head right...

After a long and argumental walk with my wife to find this place and to get here in time for the laser show, we turned up tired, sweaty and without a clue how we got there! We were even unsure if we were in the right place! After all that it wasn't really the best vantage point for the laser... More

The icon is brightly gilded to look really bright and golden under the sun. It is the city flower of Hong Kong -- Bauhinia Blakeana. Flag raising at 8 am takes place here, unless when it is cancelled due to inclement weather. Good to come here earlier before the bus loads of tourists arrive. It is in this square at... More

Staying in Wan Chai / Causeway Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centers of Hong Kong Island. Filled with shops, malls and restaurants, both areas are bustling with people – tourists and locals alike. Causeway Bay has one of the highest rents on the planet, and is a bit more polished and modern than its Wan Chai counterpart. Beneath the surface there is more than meets the eye – find boutique stores in the above ground floors of buildings and wander into side streets to find interesting restaurants and shops tucked away from the main roads. Wan Chai especially has experienced a modern revival in recent times, with an influx of trendy restaurants and bars around the Star Street area. In addition, both areas contain many of Hong Kong’s iconic tourist attractions worthy of your visit.
