Getting to Hong Kong Island’s Southside is about a 5-minute journey on the shortest train line with about 4 to 5 stops — the same line that you would ride to Ocean Park, which is great for families and has epic roller coaster rides and takes about a day to walk around.
This time I didn’t go to Ocean Park. I was more interested in visiting smaller attractions.
I loved spending time treading the pavement here in search of independent art galleries, which, to my surprise were tucked away in tall, sometimes rundown buildings without any signposts. Ultimately, I found myself walking around and around in circles in the blazing hot sun…until I accessed a map and returned a day later.
The area is exploding with colour and it was one of my favourite parts of the holiday to leisurely stroll and stop whenever I felt the urge to take photos. It was also the first time that I felt like a real tourist and without a child in tow it was a breeze. Click on the gallery above for a larger close-up view 😉 .
There’s more than enough visual stimuli to soak up at the southern end of Hong Kong without even having to set foot inside an actual art gallery. Although, eventually I found a few. Gallery posts coming soon…Thanks for dropping by!
Thank you to the lovely stranger(s) who helped to take the photos of me in the body of this post <3
