Architectural Photo tours Central, Hong Kong island, by Jackie Peers
The Central district of Hong Kong, is a great location for our photography tour, here the future meets the past in Hong Kong and nowhere can you see this more clearly than in the Central district. Our guided photography tour takes you amongest historic buildings that are nestled amid stunning skyscrapers, where the ancient art of feng shui influences modern architecture, and along streets whose very names evoke the colourful history of Hong Kong.
The heart of Hong Kong city, the Central district, has been developing since inception of British rule in 1841. Western-style buildings sprang up as the city grew prosperously and the early 20th century saw Hong Kong develop into a metropolis. Extensive reclamations extending the waterfront and development projects were carried out during different periods and although the outlook of Hong Kong is ever changing, many historical buildings and structures still survive as standing testimony to the history of Hong Kong Island's Central district.
As we walk we admire architecture from well-known architects such as Lord Norman Foster, IM Pei and Kohn Pedersen Fox.
