Reunification Monument, Hong Kong

By on September 4, 2015 in Hong Kong

This is a rather odd place in Hong Kong as it seems to be almost hidden away, and yet it has great historic significance.

Behind the Hong Kong Exhibition Centre on the Expo Promenade is the Reunification Monument and the Golden Bauhinia. The “Forever Blooming Bauhinia Sculpture” that gives Promenade its other often used name of the Golden Bauhinia Square. The “Forever Blooming Bauhinia Sculpture” was a gift from the Central Government of China to mark the handover of Hong Kong to China in 1997.

There is also an obelisk on the site commemorating the handover in 1997.

The Promenade is also used as a place to walk, to admire the views across the harbour and a place to fish.
