Central, Hong Kong

CentralHong Kong is divided into four major parts: Hong Kong Island, Kowloon Peninsula, New Territories and Outlying Islands. Central (Central District), located on Hong Kong Island, across Victoria Harbour from Tsim Sha Tsui in Kowloon Peninsula, is the central political and business district of the city. There are several arterial streets in the district, including Queen's Road, Des Voeux Road, Chater Road and Connaught Road. Many multinational financial services corporations have set up their headquarters in the area. There are also all kinds of restaurants and fashion stores in this district so that local people and visitors prefer to go shopping here. In addition, from the fantastic viewpoint of Victoria Peak which overlooks the Central, you can see many new and old architectural buildings regarded as landmarks on Hong Kong Island.

Landmarks
In the southeast corner of Central lays the Cheung Kong Center, designed by world-renowned architects Cesar Pelli and Leo A. Daly, considered as much a work of art as an efficient working environment. The Bank of China Tower, designed by I. M. Pei, is one of the most recognizable skyscrapers in Central. The Legislative Council Building is located to the east of Statue Square. Along Connaught Road, you can see the Hong Kong City Hall to the northeast of Statue Square, and Jardines House to the northwest of Statue Square. The HKCH no longer holds city government offices but now provides a venue for performing arts and libraries. Formerly known as Connaught Centre, Jardines House was once the highest and best-known office tower in the city. Opposite Jardines House is Exchange Square, the building that houses the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. The Airport Express Hong Kong Station is just on the north side of the Stock Exchange. Going along to the north, the Two International Finance Centre will come into sight. It is a prominent landmark and the highest building at present on Hong Kong Island.

Shopping
It is one of the most famous shopping centers in the city. There are several big shopping malls and flourishing shopping streets at this area. The Prince's Building is an office tower and centre, famous for smaller market boutique style shops. There are all kinds of renowned shops here, such as Hugo Boss, Bally, Chanel, Cartier, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren and Piaget. The Landmark is commonly known as the home of numerous prestigious international brands and a gathering place of well-heeled shoppers. Alexandra House is another top rank shopping mall with all kinds of world fashion brands on Chater Road. Apart from these big shopping malls, you can also go to Li Yuen Street and Hollywood Road for shopping. Li Yuen Street is a small fairground with where ordinary daily goods, such as clothes, beauty aids and watches are sold. Hollywood is a famous street filled with trinket and antique shops of all sorts, including Chinese furniture, porcelain ware, Buddha sculptures, Tibetan rugs, Japanese netsukes, Coromandel screens, Ming Dynasty ceramic horsemen and kitsch Maoist memorabilia.
