Another year of the ongoing pandemic has again tested Hong Kong’s leisure and hospitality sector. Between travel restrictions and limited group dining numbers, social distancing rules have been in full force for the year, with no signs of easing anytime soon. That being said, our city was able to forge ahead with a can-do spirit and managed to have an impressive year filled with a slew of new openings—including museums, theme park facilities and revitalised historic buildings, much to our delight.
Ahead, we've rounded up the biggest, newest landmarks opening in Hong Kong this year. From M+ Museum to Ocean Park’s Water World and the revitalised Central Market, these places should be on your radar for your next weekend getaway.
After two decades of planning, M+ finally opened to the public in Hong Kong in November. A remarkable addition to the local art scene that delights art lovers and curators from around the world, the museum is touted as Asia’s first global museum of contemporary visual culture. The new landmark of West Kowloon Cultural District features 183,000 square feet of exhibition space across 33 galleries, where apart from exhibitions, visitors can also enjoy a series of live performances, talks, workshops and screenings all under one roof.
