I recently visited the Flagstaff Museum of Tea Ware as part of my first trip to Hong Kong. It is a small museum and was not interesting to my husband, so I left it for one of my last days. But, I am so glad that I made it! I would have felt cheated had I gone to Hong Kong... More

I always wanted to visit Chinese teapot or tea process factory. Hence, found out this place from the website and its tea sharing and demo session. After arranged meeting my long-time Hong Kong pen-pal, she leaded us the way. I thought I would have missed out the tea sharing session as we were late. But, fortunately, there were 1 seat... More

I stumbled by accident upon this gem of a museum during a short visit to HongKong. It was a real godsend since I have lived in China for close to two decades and in that time I have become very interested in its rich tea culture. I was truly impressed by this permanent exhibit : the historical building, the informative... More

This museum has a small but well curated collection of tea ware. When we visited, the first floor also contained an interesting exhibit of Neolithic jade artifacts from a local archaeological site. Considering the free admission and the walk through a beautiful urban park to get to it, this museum is well worth a visit.

It is situated inside the Hong Kong Park which is in the middle of the city. To get there, you can go by the MTR and walk about 15minutes. The permanent exhibition on the ground floor was closed for renovation when we were there. However they are having another exhibition on the 1st floor until next year. It's free to... More

Within Hong Kong Park, the FHM of Tea Ware is open free to the public. The museum provides a wonderful overview and history of tea and tea ware in China and incredible tea ware art. The museum is worth a visit in order to understand the importance of tea in HK/China's culture.

This museum is free but not particularly interesting to me. Eating and drinking tea at the teahouse next to the museum is expensive. You can have better and cheaper tea and dim sum at other places in Hong Kong.

We stopped in here unplanned, while wandering through the wonderful Hong Kong Park. We were stunned to find such a great set of exhibits and education on tea and tea ware. Very interesting! There were hardly any tourists there when we went, so it must not be well known. Even if you are not a tea lover, it is worthwhile... More

Located inside HK park in the former residence of the chief of British military. The building itself is interesting if one can imagine the life style of a British military officer when HK was a British colony - the ambiance of the surrounding, the size of the mansion... Etc. The museum has a display of mainly Chinese hand made antique... More

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
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 quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
