Hong Kong House opens for public visits


Hong Kong (HKSAR) -      Hong Kong House, home of the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, Sydney (HKETO), participated in Sydney Open once again to open its doors for public visits yesterday (November 4). The HKETO welcomed more than 700 visitors during the event.

     Presented by Sydney Living Museums, the annual event provides an opportunity for lovers of architecture and historic buildings to access spaces normally off limits to the public for them to appreciate some of Sydney's most architecturally and historically significant buildings.

     Built in 1891, Hong Kong House is a heritage-listed building that was converted from a hotel with a banking chamber to office and retail use in the late 1980s. Complementing adjacent Victorian buildings, Hong Kong House's ornate Victorian appearance with a decorative stone façade makes it a landmark in Sydney's central business district. 

     During the open day, photos showing Hong Kong House's history were displayed, along with videos and promotional materials about the latest developments of Hong Kong.

Souvenirs with Hong Kong characteristics were given away to visitors to further promote the city.
