The Former French Mission Building is a declared monument in Hong Kong and nice opportunity to view one of the few preserved buildings from the colonial period. Situated upon the elevated landscape on Battery Path, this structure was constructed in 1915, made of granite and red/orange brick in Neo-classical style. Today this building continues to be used by the local... More

One of my favorite buildings in Hong Kong. Attractive architecture and red stone and is perched impressively on the hill above the HSBC building. It houses the Court of Final Appeal, an admirable institution, though it will soon move back to the Supreme Court Building.

Next to St. John's Cathedral you can find the nice, orange bricked building that presently serves as the Hong Kong court of appeal. We tried to go inside but it seems you can only visit the outside grounds, simply viewing the outside of this building. Unless you are history buff, there is probably little reason to include this minor attraction... More

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood 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.
