Walked here from ferry and found the calm of the park a delight, but the presence of the PLA by the executive and legislative buildings is a bit creepy. Enjoy the view over the water. Probably best not to bring an open umbrella unless it is actually raining.

Was having a walk from Central Post Office to City Hall, passed by Prince of Wales Building. Lost its charm after 1997.

I loved the new park they are creating around the Chief Executive and legislature. Wonderful architecture modern but creative an entirely appropriate to the area and what is being created here. However you have to smile here in this area there is the legislature, the CEO office ( beautiful) the city hall and in between the People Liberation Army HQ. Ok get on for awhile playing at democracy but make no mistake we can crush you any time we want. ENJOY.

The Chinese People's Liberation Army Forces Hong Kong Building is one of many structures that make up the iconic Hong Kong Skyline. It is also referred to as the Prince of Wales Building.

Built in the 1970s, the building is only 28 floors high, making it one of the shorter members of the army of skyscrapers on Hong Kong Island. You can recognise the Prince of Wales building by its elevated narrow base supporting the higher floors, which are of a classic rectangular shaped structure. Unfortunately, with its lack of height and somewhat dull appearance, this is not one of the more exciting buildings to look when scanning the skyline.

Today, this is where you can find the headquarters of the People's Liberation Army Hong Kong Garrison. As far as I know, the public isn't allowed access into the building so best to just have a quick look while in Central and carry on with your other sightseeing endeavours.
