  • A must visit place... is a major landmark for Hong Kong. Take MTR to wan zai. A short walking distance only after exit from MTR. 
  • 很多大陸客團都會到此一遊拍照,附近亦適合拍維多利亞港及九龍半島的景色,本地人倒是很少會來這裡觀光。每月的1號早上8點這裡會舉行升旗禮,會有樂隊表演,算是一個不太有趣但是必去的景點。 
  • On a large square is the Golden Bauhinia. A monumemt in honor to the fact that Hong Kong returned to China by the British Queen. 07.50 to kloklsag there is the flag ceremony. Two flags that of Hong Kong and China are stately hoisted with music by men in a tight costume. The ceremony takes a quarter of an hour. The square is easily accessible by MRT and then a ten-minute walk to the waterfront.

  • We came here to watch the Hong Kong light show. There are speakers which played the music synchronized to the lights. However, there were some people playing music and making a noise which ruined it a little bit. Also there were 3 helicopters which landed very close by, blocking out the music. I think viewing the show from the Kowloon side would have been better.
  • A tourist spot - mainly Chinese. Nothing to see at all except the "Golden Bauhinia". Not worth a visit especially if you come by MTR - a long walk without shop or scenery. If you want to visit harbourside, go to Tsim Sha Tsui or Central pier instead. Not recommended at all.
  • historical monument with great significance, nice place to see the victoria barbour, clean promenade, with seats, space and fishing opportunities.
  • One of the most beautiful harbor night scenery in the world. Even though I am local, it was still always breath-taking whenever I passed by and saw this night scene. Absolutely splendid~!
  • Golden bauhinia is located in Wan Chai. From here you will see the Victoria harbour in TST.
