The Golden Bauhinia Square

The Golden Bauhinia Square is an open area in Wan Chai North, Hong Kong by the sea side.  It was named after the giant sculpture at the center of the area. As you can see, there was an enormous building behind the sculpture. Unfortunately, we can't visit it because it was closed.   

The "Forever Blooming Bauhinia" Sculpture
After that, we went to the sea side to have a glimpse of the scenery.

  3. These are great shots, Jenn! I love to see photos of place I havn't been to. And your blog design is wonderful with the background of leaves. I live in Canada where we have lots of maple trees that have all turned red and gold now that it's autumn...
