St John's Anglican Cathedral is situated in the finance district of HK. It is an attractive, well-maintained building. If you go to sit inside it has an air of solemnity. It is worth calling in if passing the area.

On the way close to the peak tram. Nice church well maintained offering quietness. On Wednesday during lunchtime, piano concert free of charge to relax further.

Like a large parish church I was reminded of St George's Cathedral in Jerusalem, another centre of calm in a differently hectic city. After been taken to a series of Buddhist shrines across China by our Chinese host it was good to be able to...More

If you like old cathedrals in Hong Kong then you should go see this place. Was having some work done on one part of the structure but looked in good shape for the most part.

When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies
with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open
late into the night and there just happens to be a
street party every weekend. Although everything seems
to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of
