There is also a bar and restaurant on the top floor, where a sizable function room plays host to dance nights.

  • Historical building which has been renovated and now is home to some restaurants and a whole host of souvenir shops selling interesting handy crafts. The restaurant on the top floor is delicious as well as honeymoon desserts on the ground floor. There is a souvenir shop that specialises in bus memorabilia if you are into buses.
  • Great historic building, the combination of history and modern Hong Kong
  • One of the very few remaining architecture from the colonial era in Hong Kong. The looks of it from outside is alright. Nothing spectacular really. This place may have its historic significance, but it is a rather boring place in my opinion. Nothing interesting.
  • Nothing to see inside, some boring shops selling useless stuff. Looks nice on the outside but cramped between other buildings so hard to take a photo.
  • Historically-significant facade aside, this building has virtually nothing going for it internally, served by mostly tacky souvenir shops. The Tokyo Cheese Factory branch situated here is the only thing worth a visit.
