Hong Kong Islands

Hong Kong was incipiently considered a worthless plot of land with no resources and little flat-lying areas. Most of the flat areas we see today are reclaimed land. The British Empire saw no merit in the island; its coastline was rugged, there was no river, it had little arable farmland, and it lacked mineral resources. The first British settlement (Western district) was a rigorously malaria-infested area.

Nevertheless, the harbor lodged between its northern coast and the peninsular of Kowloon jutting out from the mainland was nearly perfect. This 45 sq. km of harbor was thought to be the best deep-water port in the entire region. After many colonial governors later, the value of Hong Kong has gained much clarity.

This 368m structure was designed by the renowned Chinese-American architect, I M Pei.

South Side
The harbor town of Aberdeen is accessible via Kennedy Town through the residential districts of Pok Fu Lam and Chi Fu Fa Yuen and past the Wah Fu Estate.

The Peak
Located on Hong Kong Island, The Peak was never as popular as it is today.

Wan Chai & Causeway Bay
Admiralty, located between Central and Wan Chai, is only one MTR stop east of Central.

Western District
Western District is located to the west of Central and is the area least influenced by Western culture.
