Take a quick lesson in the Territory’s rich and varied history at the history museum in Tsim Sha Tsui. Not only does it provide a surprisingly good chronological romp through the territory’s history – taking in the Opium Wars, Japanese occupation, Hong Kong’s heyday as a manufacturing centre and the 1997 handover – but it’s all presented in a lively format with great visuals – if a little frayed around the edges. The whole thing can be happily navigated in the space of one hour and it’s about 10 minutes in a taxi from Central.
