Brrr, it’s cold in here.

On one of my walks during lunch or after work I snapped a few shots of these beautiful buildings in Central. These buildings are located near Ice House Street, which, believe it or not, used to have an ice storage depot. Hong Kong used to export ice in insulated vessels.

Bishop’s House, one of the oldest buildings in Central.

The Foreign Correspondent’s Club, quite a classy joint. This used to be the old Dairy Farm building where it was used for cold storage and distribution. This is one of my favourite buildings in HK.

On the other side is the Fringe Club, a hip place in town.

You know you’re a foodie when out of all the luxury brand flagship stores in Hong Kong, you are most excited about a Le Creuset store.

  1. So many neat buildings! Have you been inside the Fringe Club yet?

    Oh man I always gawk at the Creuset display in Good Egg. They look even more impressive on those white shelves!

  2. Nice post – have you been on any of Jason’s walks? I would really like to go, but have not found the time yet!

      Thanks for the heads up — I didn’t realize he hosted walks! It is too bad that I am heading back to Canada soon and won’t be able to make it. I really enjoyed reading his book though since it provided more context before/after visiting the sites.
