Hong Kong is one of the best travel destinations in the world simply because it has everything for everyone. Foodies, for example, can enjoy a memorable gastronomic experience simply by sampling the delicacies in food stalls. Kids and kids at heart, on the other hand, can have the time of their lives in Disneyland Hong Kong and Ocean Park.
If you’re an art lover, you’ll find that Hong Kong has a lot of attractions that you’ll definitely want to explore. These include:
Hong Kong Visual Arts Center
Artists who want to hone their skills in ceramics, sculpture, and printmaking can use the fully equipped studios in the Hong Kong Visual Arts Center, which was set up to support local art. Visit the center to view the works of local artists and explore the center’s Grade II Historic Building.
University Museum and Art Gallery
Located near the University of Hong Kong, this attraction is a great place to visit if you want to view an interesting range of collections and exhibit, which include ancient paintings, calligraphy, sculptures, wood carvings, ceramics, and bronze artifacts. If you’re traveling with a big group, you can book a customized group tour to get the chance to tour the museum in private and learn more about its displays.
Hong Kong Film Archive
If film making is your art of choice, you’ll want to check out the Hong Kong Film Archive. It’s home to hundreds of Hong Kong movies that date back from the 1930s up to the 1990s, and its collection is one of the biggest and one of the most varied in terms of genre. Try to catch a public screening of one of the films — it’s an experience you won’t forget.

Art doesn’t always have to be serious! Here at Repulse Bay Visual Art Museum, you can enjoy exploring 3D paintings that make it appear as if you’re inside the artwork yourself.
