Fodor's Review

The handsome white Victorian occupying the land between Upper and Lower Albert roads was constructed in 1855 as the official residence of British governors, and is now home to the Hong Kong chief executive. During the Japanese occupation the house was significantly rebuilt, so it exhibits a Japanese influence, particularly in the roof eaves. The gardens are opened to the public once a year in March, when the azaleas bloom.
