After the Causeway Bay station on the blue MTR line, people tend to have less reason to venture to the Chai Wan direction and head towards the Eastern district. Fortress Hill is predominantly a residential area, but other than eating and walking around, there are interesting things to do and see around the neighbourhood. Try spending a day in the quiet area of Hong Kong Island and see a different side of Hong Kong!
Oil Street Art Space
Oil Street Art Space is a government organization that aims to spark a passion for art among the community. Normally the audience can only act as passive observers in art exhibitions, but the “Bâtiment – Oi!” exhibition encourages visitors to actively participate and bring the work to life. The aim of the exhibition is to disrupt our notion of reality, but it’s plain fun to see people hanging off buildings in the reflection!
Tim Ho Wan
People tend to have the misconception that Michelin-starred restaurants are pretentious and unaffordable, but the average joe can enjoy Michelin-starred dim sum at Tim Ho Wan.

If you want to get your dim sum fix at a cheap and affordable price, this is the place to go.
