  • The Government House is a statutory monument built in 1855. It was used as a command during the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong during World War II, and a tower was added to the original British building, with Japanese tiles as a roof. The British Government governs Hong Kong as the Governor of Hong Kong. After the reunification in 1997, it was renamed the Government House. It is now the official residence of the Chief Executive of Hong Kong. The government house's gardens are open to the public on a regular basis every year.

  • This is the official residence of the chief executive of Hong Kong. Visitors don't get in, but you can go ahead in the gate and take a look. I'm not sure if the police will stop you from taking pictures at the door. However, it only opens twice a year to the public. Compared with Singapore, this is a disgrace. Because Singapore's president's government will be open to the public on every public holiday and special scene. If you have a chance to see the building here, you will find that the design looks like the neoclassical design of Japan. This is because, during the Second World War, Japan modified the design of the British colonial art period.
