Hong Kong’s legacy as a British Crown Colony remains clearly visible in a string of monuments and statues, gardens and war cemeteries that vividly conjure up the most eastern outpost of the British Empire. These well-tended landmarks have become much more than relics of history, they are symbols of an astonishing story of survival. This guide allows you to stroll through Hong Kong’s colonial history. Each landmark has a story; each represents a slice of history. It is a journey that introduces you to a cast of colourful characters and to those who forged one of history’s great collaborations – the partnership that built Hong Kong.
