3. Heritage Trail. I didn’t join the heritage tour with the tour guide, so I just strolling around and find this Heritage Trail. This trail offers you a history about the military. Not only the historical building, this trail offers you a Miller Theater that can be used for lectures, performances and film screenings.
5. Joseph Lau & Josephine Lau Roof Garden. This rooftop garden offers you an outdoor event spaces and some statues (ex. Zhang Huan’s Long Island Buddha). You can enjoy the outdoor space that surrounding by the green plant, small pond, and jungle of Admiralty. If you can visit this rooftop in the afternoon, you will get a perfect afternoon shot.
For the love of art, you should come here when you’re visiting Hong Kong. Spend 2-3 hours here and take a pause from the hustle bustle – city of life. Asia Society offers you a new perspective of enjoying art gallery in outdoor and indoor environment.
