The Golden Bauhinia is a gift from the people of the PRC to mark the widespread joy of the Chinese at the return of the territory to the Motherland after 156 years. Catch all the pomp and ceremony of the official, daily flag raising at the Golden Bauhinia Square located outside the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre. This major sightseeing attraction has been the venue for the flag raising since 1997 when Hong Kong was returned to Chinese sovereignty.

Take the MTR to Wan Chai Station, leaving from the A1 Exit. Walk across the footbridge, head right and through the lobby of Central Plaza, continue on across the connecting overhead walkway, then descend to ground level. Head towards the waterfront ahead, and you will find the statue and monument on the left.

Address: Wan Chai, Hongkong Island
