Located on Upper Albert Road, Government House was the former residence for Hong Kong's British governors. Built in 1855, the building has been enlarged and altered considerably since then.
The building is a blend of different styles that mirrors Hong Kong's history. Influences from the WWII Japanese occupation can be seen in the oriental style turret and the upturned roofs of the house. The current chief executive of Hong Kong, Tung Chee Hwa decided not to live in Government House, supposedly because of the bad Fung Shui! Government House is open to the public on select days and is also used for charity functions and outdoor concerts. Check local newspapers for more information.
