...by a mile. HK Island doesn’t really use its long waterfront all that well apart from here and North Point and this bit is the better part I think. Big spaces right next to and in amongst spectacular buildings plus a superb view over the water. Also it’s a great space for festivals.

Tamar Park is a must-see on a tourist itinerary. Even if you have limited time, it is worth coming down to this waterfront park where you can get the best views of Hong Kong. Entry is free. The park has undergone massive renovations in the last few years. It is now a vast grassy and landscaped space, running along the Central foreshore. From here, you can stand right at the waterfront and look directly across Victoria Harbour to the Kowloon and TST skyline. You also have a unique perspective of the Hong Kong skyline on the Central side. It’s the only place where you can see iconic buildings like the Bank of China, the IFC towers, the Observation Wheel and the Exhibition Centre with a grassy verge in front. The dramatic black mirrored building that looks like a modern triumphal arch is the Central Government Offices. Other features are: * The new promenade allows you to walk along the waterfront all the way from the ferry piers right through to the Exhibition Centre and Wan Chai. Allow about 25 min. * Artwork – at the moment there are some fun installations including a series of over-sized vintage TVs (pop behind the screen for a fun photo). * Infinity Sculpture – there are a number of sculptures but I particularly like this one. It is the large oxidised sculpture near the Observation Wheel end of the park and it makes a great photo with the IFC towers looming in the background. The endless curves symbolise infinity and also represent the waves of the harbour in front of you and the peaks of the mountains behind you. * Paths throughout the park are even and flat and accessible for children and pushchairs.

The actual park is between two big buildings but it serves like a gateway to one of the greatest views I had of the city.

Came across this place by accident and really glad I did. Plenty of things going off and away from the hassle of the centre of HK. I found it very tranquil and I really have to say its a must whilst visiting HK.

If you want to know the city in deep, I really suggest you to take a walk in the Tamar Park in Sunday! The Philippine people are a crucial part to the Hong Kong community, a lot of middle class families are busy to work outside and rely on hiring them for the household shores. Apart from the iconic Victoria harbour, Tamar park is a great place for you to understand the Philippine mates, they will gather together on Sunday in some parts of Hong Kong, Tamar park is a great place to meet them!
