It was not much to look at but this historic building is the only surviving pre-war cinema building in the urban area of Hong Kong. We wandered around the small lobby and learnt that it has become a venue dedicated to Cantonese opera. We were...More
Grade 2 listed building together with the red brick building acting as the administrative centre and gift shop.
A place for Canto Opera which is an acquired taste. Local budding amateurs and enthusiasts do perform here. So be warned.
I loved this place! I took a chance on going to this theatre because I wanted to experience a different side Hong Kong. The experience was definitely different from watching western musicals, but it was interesting.
I didn't understand a word but thankfully the theatre...More

Jordan / Yau Ma Tei
The Jordan and Yau Ma Tei neighbourhood is where you will find some of the more authentic areas of Hong Kong. Not as glamourous or busy as its neighbours Mong Kok to the north or Tsim Sha Tsui to the south, Yau Ma Tei is often mistakenly overlooked by visitors on their trips to Hong Kong. Exploring parts of this area makes you feel like you’ve been transported back in time. A large part of the neighbourhood draws from the
rich history of Temple Street, stretching from Jordan to Yau Ma Tei, where a mix of dai pai dongs (outdoor restaurants), market stalls, fortune tellers and old karaoke bars bring out the history and culture of the area. The neighbourhood is a showcase of diversity – different ethnicities, cultures, and a mix of old and new.
