One of the not distant local landmark buildings, in central, by I.M. Pei, next to the HSBC building by Norman Foster. Good that you can walk inside free, as it is a banking hall.

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
