Signal Hill Signal Tower

Just when I thought I had seen almost everything in Tsim Sha Tsui, I read about the Signal Hill Signal Tower and realised that I have no idea where it is. The Signal Tower sits in a small park and its entrance is at Minden Row. It is very close to the Middle Road Children's… Continue reading Signal Hill Signal Tower

Sky100 Observation Deck at the ICC

I can't believe that it really took me this long to make it up to the highest building in Hong Kong: the ICC in West Kowloon. The International Commerce Centre has 108 stories, is 484 metres tall and was completed in 2010, shortly before I arrived in Hong Kong. It currently is the world's ninth… Continue reading Sky100 Observation Deck at the ICC

Mei Ho House

While we were in Kowloon, visiting the Hong Kong Housing Authority Exhibition Centre, we decided to visit the Mei Ho House too. Bama has written about it here and ever since then I wanted to visit it too. The house is closely linked to the history of public housing estates in Hong Kong, as this… Continue reading Mei Ho House

Hong Kong Pulse 3D Light Show

Ok, I admit it - some things take longer to reach me! I had no idea there was a 3D light show at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre and the Clock Tower at Tsim Sha Tsui, that will coincide with the Hong Kong WinterFest. I just happened to stumble upon it after leaving the Cultural… Continue reading Hong Kong Pulse 3D Light Show

Yau Ma Tei: West of Nathan Road (Tin Hau Temple, Police Station, Jade Market, Wholesale Fruit Market, Red Brick Building)

After exploring the East side of Nathan Road, I continued my walk along the West side - going up to Yau Ma Tei station. This is an area that I had explored a couple of times. It starts with the Tin Hau Temple Complex, which used to be located on the waterfront. It was founded… Continue reading Yau Ma Tei: West of Nathan Road (Tin Hau Temple, Police Station, Jade Market, Wholesale Fruit Market, Red Brick Building)

Yau Ma Tei: East of Jordan Station (Gun Club Hill Barracks, Kowloon Union Church and Land’s Tribunal)

Normally I walk around the West area of Nathan road - but this time I explored the East area. Starting from Jordan MTR station, which is in the heart of Yau Ma Tei I walked south-east, to Austin Road. From there it was only a few footsteps to the Jordan Path, that runs between the… Continue reading Yau Ma Tei: East of Jordan Station (Gun Club Hill Barracks, Kowloon Union Church and Land’s Tribunal)
