Tai Kwun - Centre for Heritage and Arts

Hong Kong's largest ever restoration project is an arts and entertainment complex occupying the colonial-era police station and its adjacent buildings, such as a former jail, where today's visitors head of their own volition. The Tai Kwun Contemporary located on its grounds is estimated to host up to 8 art exhibitions every year, plus music and cultural events (such as theatrical performances, workshops, and more) are being scheduled continuously – check their website to see what's on. Don't miss the bar occupying an old prison building.

Do & See

Temples, museums, amusement parks and lookout points – Hong Kong has a great variety of sights to explore. Highlights include the Man Mo Temple, Victoria Peak, the Big Buddha and the night-time market in Temple Street, but be sure to find some time to explore some of the city's fantastic museums, as well: the former colonial police station of Tai Kwun, for example, reopened recently as a museum and cultural venue, and features curious spots like a full-blown bar inside a refurnished old prison.
