Hong Kong's former prison and police station is now a revitalised complex with exhibitions and restaurants. The Tai Kwun offers a glimpse into early colonial history an the life of the inmates. Beware of the crowd of tourists.

It struck me that two of Hong Kong's best destinations are remodeled buildings linked to the Police department. PMQ and Tai Kwun, both in different ways a transformation of government buildings into a place filled with restaurants, art, architecture and visitable shops.

It’s a first one in HK. My kids were fascinated about what the bad guys do once they are locked in the prison. It’s well illustrated and to have a bit more insight into this topic. There were great and free performances when we visited.

The old Victorian prison and later additions has been made into a museum, art gallery and eating space. Beautifully executed, you can easily spend a few hours visiting the complex. They need to have some video films running to explain the complex evolvement.

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
to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open
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

Online. Log on to the official websit. I have been there twice. Seems it won't hit 2000 limit at any time. Yet, save a spot just in case won't hurt.
