In Hung Hom, you’ll find great restaurants and bars as well as numerous fine shopping malls, the grand Hong Kong Coliseum and the artistic Senso Italiano gallery. Hung Hom is well worth exploring.

The Hong Kong Polytechnic University

The Hong Kong Polytechnic University is one of eight universities in Hong Kong. It was officially granted full university status in 1994 but its history can be traced back to 1937 when it was still called The Government Trade School. There are eight faculties and schools which provide students with different knowledge and community service opportunities. Covering an area of 93,500 square meters, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University has sport centers, leisure rooms, restaurants, and residential halls.

Hung Hom Ferry Pier

The Hung Hom Ferry Pier was built in 1965 and once located next to the Royal Peninsula but it was then moved to its current location in 1991 after the completion of the Hung Hom Bay Reclamation Project. The North Point line is the only ferry route left now, as the Central and Wan Chai lines ceased operation due to a decrease in passenger numbers. With some nice food stalls and restaurants nearby, it is still nice to walk around the pier as you will be able to see the characteristic Hong Kong-style ferry.

Hong Kong Coliseum

Opened in 1983, Hong Kong Coliseum is the biggest and most popular multi-purpose indoor stadium in Hong Kong, which is usually used for international sports events, entertainment programs, pop concerts and conventions. The architectural style of the stadium is unique and special. It looks like a diamond or an inverted pyramid, and the imposing arena, which is always used for pop concerts, can hold 12,500 people and provide them with an unobstructed view, as no column is used to support the rooftop.

Senso Italiano

Senso Italiano is a gallery opened by Danilo Giannoni, an Italian contemporary artist who is now based in Hong Kong. In his gallery you can appreciate the artist’s brilliant art pieces in which Ebru, the ancient Turkish painting technique of painting on the water, and Giannoni’s own innovation are applied. His masterpieces showcase a combination of ancient and modern techniques, while the natural and peaceful color manipulation creates a heavenly and dreamy style. If you are in need of some peaceful moments in this bustling district, just visit the gallery.
