I was walking to the Peak tram and suddenly was on the grounds of St. John’s Cathedral. This is great because I wanted to see this too. There was a ceremony going on so I could enjoy the music, on the right is a place...More
I found St John’s cathedral just walking around downtown Hong Kong. I saw the entrance to the church yard and started to explore. As an Anglican, I’m very glad I did. I’m also very relieved to see freedom of religion in Hong Kong, even since...More
This 170 years old Anglican church still sits prominently despite it being dwarfed by the steel and glass skyscrapers surrounding it. It still retains the charm of a church built in the Neoclassicism period with its Gothic influences. Serene within, reflecting peace and quiet, this...More
While at the Peak Tram station, walked by the church and decided to stop in for visit. It is a nice simple church/cathedral and appears very historic. I like the yellow color the church gives it a sub-tropical feel.
It’s the oldest remaining Western-style church in Hong Kong and was laid in 1847.
The church was designed to combine early 13th-century English and Gothic architecture.
It’s located in the heart of Hong Kong's commercial centre & is surrounded by nearby skyscrapers and has witnessed...More
Have visited a few times in the past and was not planning to on this trip, but we were walking Queen's Road and decided to check out Battery Patch, a walkway with shrubs and foliage parallel to Queen's Road. This took us to the back...More
This is a fine example of British colonial church architecture dates from 1849 and the only piece of Free Hold land in Hong Kong. A part from being a quiet place of reflection in an otherwise non stop busy noisy environment there is some quiet...More
St John's Anglican Cathedral is situated in the finance district of HK. It is an attractive, well-maintained building. If you go to sit inside it has an air of solemnity. It is worth calling in if passing the area.
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of
quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
