City Gallery Museum

City Gallery is an exhibition centre about the planning and development of Hong Kong. It is located at Edinburgh Place in Central - and I only stumbled upon it by sheer luck. We went to see a photography exhibition at the City Hall and that's when we noticed the City Gallery next door. It is… Continue reading City Gallery Museum

Walk from Tamar to Sheung Wan

Now with a baby and a stroller, I'm trying to navigate my way around Hong Kong. And let me tell you, it is not easy. There are too many steps, narrow aisles and uneven pavements everywhere. It is not fun to take a stroller out. However, I am making an effort to find some routes… Continue reading Walk from Tamar to Sheung Wan

Hong Kong Maritime Museum: Made in Hong Kong

I've been visiting the Maritime Museum several times since it moved to the very convenient central location next to the Star Ferry. I really enjoy their exhibition - and I had fun visiting their current special exhibition called 'Made in Hong Kong'. This exhibition is all about what makes Hong Kong unique - and it… Continue reading Hong Kong Maritime Museum: Made in Hong Kong

Review: Dim Sum at Maxim’s Palace

There is probably NO guide book that does NOT mention the famous Maxim's Palace in Hong Kong's City Hall... but it took me more than four years to give this famous place a go. And the only reason we went is that we were next door at the City Gallery and when we finished walking… Continue reading Review: Dim Sum at Maxim’s Palace

Sunny days in Hong Kong

Apologies for my blogging absence - the nice and sunny weather was to blame! I have been to busy exploring and enjoying Hong Kong! We had particularly bad weather after the Chinese New Year. March was windy, grey and rainy. But April has been fantastic - the month allowed me to go out a lot… Continue reading Sunny days in Hong Kong

Art exhibition: Ben Quilty at Pearl Lam Galleries

I've been lucky that I managed to see so many exhibitions in the Pedder Building last week... but I've been unlucky that I've not had enough time to write about them. Again, an interesting exhibition at the Pearl Lam Galleries that I really enjoyed but it already closed its doors (on March 1) so you… Continue reading Art exhibition: Ben Quilty at Pearl Lam Galleries

At the Red Bull Flugtag 2014

There was a break without any rain yesterday afternoon, so it was a good opportunity to go and see the Red Bull Flugtag myself. The only problem was that hundreds of people had the same idea, so there was a big group of people already at the location close to the central ferry piers. When… Continue reading At the Red Bull Flugtag 2014

PMQ is open

If you have read my post from the Night Market yesterday, you'll know that I've been to PMQ. That's the former police married quarters in Central, which was been reborn as a design hub. It is a very interesting building, so let me write a little bit more about it today. The original police married… Continue reading PMQ is open

Treasure Hunt from Central to Aberdeen

I really enjoy exploring Hong Kong - not just the landscape and its country parks, but also the backstreets, alleyways and parts that are off the beaten track. One way to find out more about the history of the city, explore new areas and meet great people is to join one of the treasure hunts… Continue reading Treasure Hunt from Central to Aberdeen
