Hong Kong's prominence as an international arts hub akin to that of New York, Paris and London is undeniable as world-class galleries, major fairs and prestigious institutions continue to favour the city. Hong Kong’s flourishing arts scene comes to fruition each March with an inspirational spectrum of events. From opera to ballet, from art installations to seminars, there’s something to suit all tastes — whether you’re a connoisseur or simply a dabbler. And for a truly unique arts experience year-round, the Central District is the go-to. With an array of revered galleries as well as a reputation for elaborate street arts that blends into the neighbourhood, Central makes a statement and embraces arts with a local grandeur. History blends harmoniously with modern designs at PMQ, the former Police Married Quarters now repurposed to house over 100 artistic talents. Later this year, Tai Kwun - a brand new heritage and arts centre revitalised from the former Central Police Compound - will open just a few blocks away. (Photo by Lam Yik Fei/Getty Images)
