Expo Promenade

Local name博覽海濱花園 Expo Promenade
LocationXiang gang Hong Kong, China

Also called the Expo promenade, this square is intended to celebrate the reunification of Hong Kong and China in 1997. Nearby, you can find other noteworthy sights: The Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre and the Tsim Shui Pier.

The first thing you will notice when entering the square is a golden statue of the flower after which it was named. This locally growing orchid, Bauhinia Blakeana, has been Hong Kong's signature emblem ever since 1965. The statue's official name is "Forever Blooming Bauhinia" and it has been given to Hong Kong by China, to commemorate their return.

The flower statue is not all that is interesting about the square. When visiting, remember to take a walk through the entirety of the promenade, it offers a beautiful view of the Tsim Sha Sui and the sea. Also, a flag-raising ceremony takes place here daily after 7:45 a.m.
