Xiqu Centre

The Xiqu Centre building, inspired by the design of traditional Chinese lanterns, seems to invite you inside with its facade resembling a futuristic interpretation of stage curtains opening. 1,073 guests can enjoy Xiqu exhibitions and the traditional Chinese opera in the Grand Theatre, while the Tea House Theatre holds 200 seats. Guided tours in different languages can also be booked.

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.
