All eyes on Hong Kong as the international arts hub buzzes with happenings

Hong Kong’s prominence as an international arts hub akin to that of New York, Paris and London is undeniable as world-class galleries, major fairs and prestigious institutions continue to favour the city. Art Basel will grace Hong Kong for the fourth time this month and set to draw a crowd of arts aficionados, patrons and industry influencers from around the globe. And for a truly unique arts experience year-round, the Central District is the go-to. With an array of revered galleries as well as a reputation for elaborate street arts that blends into the neighbourhood, Central makes a statement and embraces arts with a local grandeur. History blends harmoniously with modern designs at PMQ, the former Police Married Quarters now re-purposed to house over 100 artistic talents. Later this year, Tai Kwun – a brand new heritage and arts center revitalized from the former Central Police Compound – will open just a few blocks away. Tourists are invited to explore the district in their own pace or join an arts tour including one organised by the Hong Kong Tourism Board for the Hong Kong Arts Month.
