Near the HSBC and not too far from IFC and central's tall buildings this is a colonial style building similar to many in London. I personally don't like the style but it makes for a good picture.

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

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
