A small cathedral by European comparisons but a part of the history of the colonial past so I would recommending going to see.

It is one of the few Colonial buildings remaining in Hong Kong so worth a visit for that alone. A peaceful setting amongst the hustle and bustle of a modern city. Has a bookshop in the grounds. Closes at 6pm. Free entry.

This is Hong Kong's oldest Christian institution. It is rather unremarkable in outlook. The Sunday mass attracts a large crowd.

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

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
