Chi Lin Nunnery

If you’re interested in all things history related, you’ll find this attraction fascinating. This nunnery dates back to 1934, and not a single nail was used to build this nunnery. The main hall is the most fascinating part of the monastery. You can reach this attraction within 25 minutes from Hotel Purple Hong Kong or any other such Causeway Bay serviced apartments.

Hong Kong Museum of Art

A landmark art museum, this is where you’ll find a rather extensive collection of Chinese art. All of the masterpieces are well organized into their own thematic galleries. A mix of calligraphic scrolls, textiles, Qing ceramics, and contemporary canvases among several other things for you to witness.

Ladies’ Market

In Tung Choi Street, you can browse through a variety of different items found in stalls! You can put your bargaining skills to practice over here.

Hong Kong Park

This green space is extremely welcome amidst all the skyscrapers surrounding it. You’ll find leafy pathways and a mix of rock and gardens in this park. The Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware and Edward Youde Aviary are also found in the park!
