Golden Bauhina Square

I have to go to work in the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) some day. A "Flag Rising Ceremony" is held in the "Golden Bauhinia Square" beside the HKCEC every morning, at 8 am. I have to report duty at 8:15am in the morning, therefore I arrived there at 7:55am for brief breakfast, then wait for the flag rising to start at 8am sharp. I'm watching the ceremony inside HKCEC, which is 180 degree different from the general public and tourist.

Normally, tourist standing in the square to watch the ceremony, they are also facing to the HKCEC, so you can see a crowd in the left side of the video. The flag rising ceremony is normally organized by the Hong Kong Police, the nation anthem is playing while the regional flag of HKSAR and the national flag of The People's Republic of China.

The tourist association promotes this event very much. If you are living in Kowloon side, simply go to Tsim Sha Tsui and take Star Ferry to Wan Chai. The "Golden Bauhinia Square" and HKCEC is besides the ferry pier.
