The Cenotaph in Hong Kong is a bleak and sombre monument dedicated to the fallen victims of World War I. Built at this location in 1923, it is an exact replica of the famous Sir Edwin Lutyen's Cenotaph situated at Whitehall in London. You can find the Cenotaph in a small grass clearing near Statue Square, Town Hall and the... More

The presence of the Cenotaph, so evocative of the British period of Governance in Hong Kong, makes a visit to this square worthwhile. A solemn reminder of the sacrifice many of Hong Kong made during two world wars. However if one visits on a Sunday the square, and its sourrounding areas, are filled with throngs of Phillipino and other migrant... More

In Hong Kong, it's not easy to find a place remind of yesteryears, for some strange reasons, they love to take out the old and replace with the new, so to find this place still here, is a historical find, a memorial to respect the people give their life to make this a better world for us, before the Star...

On a Sunday, it's full of domestic helpers having their day off. In the week, it's a bit of a desert - nothing much here apart from an entrance to the MTR station and a few benches to sit on. Really nothing more than somewhere that you'll walk through on the way to something else, whether that's City Hall or... More

This small public space across from the HSBC building may not be worth a special trip on its own, but is worth visiting as part of a walking tour of downtown Hong Kong. The square has a statue of Sir Thomas Jackson who had a long career with the HSBC. There is also a fountain, and seating areas, and good... More

Grab a moment to sit and rest here. Although surrounded by traffic midweek, it is best on Sundays when it gets a bit quieter.

There is a bit of interesting history for Statue Square but this location is a far cry from its original intention and there is only one stature remaining on display, the most important, that of Queen Victoria has long been moved to Victoria Park in the North Point/Causeway Bay area of Hong Kong Island. This location does serve a good... More

Most landmarks of note in Hong Kong's Central District are located around or near Statue Square, such as the HSBC Building, the Bank of China Tower, the Legislative Council Building, and the IFC 2 building. A statue of Sir Thomas Jackson, the chief manager of HSBC, stands in the middle of Statue Square, which is also where Filipina domestic workers... More

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
Central
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.
