The future meets the past in Hong Kong and nowhere can you see this more clearly than in the Central district. We walk among historic buildings that are nestled amid stunning skyscrapers, where the ancient art of feng shui influences modern architecture, along streets whose very names evoke the colorful history of this amazing territory.|
The heart of Hong Kong city, the Central district, has been developing since inception of British rule in 1841. Western-style buildings sprang up as the city grew prosperously and the early 20th century saw Hong Kong develop into a metropolis. Extensive reclamations extending the waterfront and development projects were carried out during different periods and although the outlook of the city is ever changing, many historical buildings and structures still survive as standing testimony to the history of the Central district.
We will visit the Statue Square, the Legislative Council Building, the HSBC that was designed by Lord Norman Foster it is a fascinating example of how feng shui and modern environmental features have been merged in present-day Hong Kong.
