Hidden within the concrete jungle of the Central Mid-Levels, the Jamia Mosque is Hong Kong's oldest Islamic place of worship. It was built in 1849 and are joined by a tight-knit community of 100 people who have lived within the mosque compound for generations.
Modelled on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

Visit the Big Buddha
We went on a tour which took us to the Big Buddha. The cable car ride was fabulous - you see some amazing sights on the way. On the day we visited, it was really very misty. Seeing the mountain "emerge" through the fog was a great experience.

Han Ah Rum Korean Restaurant: Great Korean Restaurant
I just visited Hong Kong for the first time and I found a Korean restaurant I think you may enjoy. The name of the place is Han Ah Rum Korean Restaurant. First of all, this is a reasonably priced restaurant, approximately 200 HKD for 2 people. The food is quite good, and the...
Light show: Symphony of Lights
I highly recommend that people visiting Hong Kong should see the light show across Victoria Harbour from the Kowloon side of the habour. The best place to see the laser light show is from the harbour front close to the Star Ferry terminal.All the skyscrapers light up and...
Rise above the traffic
The center of Hong Kong has an extensive network of pedestrian bridges connecting buildings one floor above street level. This is an efficient and popular way of walking around downtown. Since you’re above the traffic, there is no waiting at corners for the light to change....

Hong Kong Architecture
It seems like there was a period in HK's history when the government decided that it would counterbalance the territory's lush and colourful flora and fauna with a drab, grey, Stalinist approach to architecture. Luckily, this period did not last too long, and HK is endowed...
Hong Kong, having been returned to China in 1997, enjoys a degree of freedom and democracy that is not otherwise seen in the PRC. There are, occasionally, protests against the government and against main actors in the complex state-business relationship that is the bedrock...
S.K.H Saint Mary's Episcopal Church
I don't think that there is anything particularly historical or important about this church, I just thought that it was a cool blend of Western religion with Chinese architecture. It is a large Episcopalian/Anglican church done with jade green roofs and red brick, like a...
Ngong Ping Gate
The gate that leads to the great Tian Tan Buddha is a spectacular sight, not least because of the surrounding green hills and the Buddha that towers overhead. There are many traditional statues of the 12 divine generals, each of whom represents a different time of day and a...
