The area
Neighbourhood: Central
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.
How to get there
  • Central • 4 min walk
  • Hong Kong • 5 min walk

When you look from Victoria Harbor, you can tell when you see the Prince of Wales building. Sticks out like a sore thumb. Grey and blocky. It really does not fit in eight he surrounding. None the Less, it is a sight to see.

I would not go just to see It, but if you are passing by, just take a look.

Walked here from ferry and found the calm of the park a delight, but the presence of the PLA by the executive and legislative buildings is a bit creepy. Enjoy the view over the water. Probably best not to bring an open umbrella unless it is actually raining.

Was having a walk from Central Post Office to City Hall, passed by Prince of Wales Building. Lost its charm after 1997.

I loved the new park they are creating around the Chief Executive and legislature. Wonderful architecture modern but creative an entirely appropriate to the area and what is being created here. However you have to smile here in this area there is the legislature, the CEO office ( beautiful) the city hall and in between the People Liberation Army HQ. Ok get on for awhile playing at democracy but make no mistake we can crush you any time we want. ENJOY.

The Chinese People's Liberation Army Forces Hong Kong Building is one of many structures that make up the iconic Hong Kong Skyline. It is also referred to as the Prince of Wales Building.

Built in the 1970s, the building is only 28 floors high, making it one of the shorter members of the army of skyscrapers on Hong Kong Island. You can recognise the Prince of Wales building by its elevated narrow base supporting the higher floors, which are of a classic rectangular shaped structure. Unfortunately, with its lack of height and somewhat dull appearance, this is not one of the more exciting buildings to look when scanning the skyline.

Today, this is where you can find the headquarters of the People's Liberation Army Hong Kong Garrison. As far as I know, the public isn't allowed access into the building so best to just have a quick look while in Central and carry on with your other sightseeing endeavours.
