Formerly Central Police Station, Tai Kwun is now dedicated to cultural heritage and arts. Located 3 min away from Ovolo Central, this is the best place to experience Hong Kong’s colonial past through the different restaurants, café, and exhibitions. These heritage buildings offer artists and organisations to host events, collaborative and interactive programs, and art shows, including photo, film, music, and more.
That’s for our shopping addict!
IFC is a top shopping place that offers everything from international luxury goods and sophisticated designer stores to local fine dining and gourmet groceries. Walk 15 minutes toward Hong Kong’s waterfront and you will find the IFC Mall.
After a long afternoon of shopping, grab your favourite tea at ChiCha SanChen and enjoy the view from the IFC Rooftop Garden (Escalators to P4)!

First, the easiest and most enjoyable way to get there is to ride the iconic Mid-Levels escalator. You may take it from the bottom, in front of the Central Market, or, just 3 min away from Ovolo Central, at Hollywood Road and Shelley intersection.
