The Golden Bauhinia Square is located in Wan Chai; and is open to public.
Located at the northern part of Wan Chai, the square is named after the golden statue of the Bauhinia blakeana; a type of orchid which is found in Hong Kong.
The Bauhinia is also found on the flag of Hong Kong, and the coins as it is considered as the floral emblem of Hong Kong.
The erection of the statue of the Bauhinia was to commemorate Hong Kong's handover to China; where most of the events took place in the square.
The square is located right outside the Hong Kong Exhibition and Convention Centre; which holds most of the ceremonies and events of the handover of Hong Kong to China in 1997.
There is also a hotel; Harbour View Hotel located within the centre.
There are flag poles located on the square; and flag raising ceremony takes place daily.
This place is popular among tourists; as you can busloads of passengers arriving each day.
The locals have set up their gadgets and equipment to help tourists with their photography session and print them on the spot plus presenting them with frames, of course with a fee :)
Take a walk further to the harbor front to enjoy the view of the city scrapers across the sea.
Hong Kong is truly beautiful; and I was lucky enough to capture such an iconic scene of Hong Kong! ;)
