The Golden Bauhinia Square (Chinese: 金紫荊廣場; Jyutping: gam1 zi2 ging1 gwong2 coeng4) is an open area in Wan Chai, Hong Kong. The square was named after the giant statue of a golden Bauhinia blakeana at the centre of the area, situated outside the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, where the ceremonies for the handover of Hong Kong and the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region were held in July 1997. A flag-raising ceremony is held every day at 8:00 am. It is considered a tourist attraction. The sculpture, a gilded flower bauhinia, is six metres high. The major part is composed of a bauhinia on a base of red granite pillar on a pyramid. The sculpture is deemed an important symbol for the Hong Kong people after the handover. On the second day of Chinese New Year and National Day of the People's Republic of China, the square is lighted up by a firework show. The Golden Bauhinia has also been nicknamed the "Golden Pak Choi" by locals.

    The must see attraction in Macau SAR. easy to reach, not so far from the outer Macau Ferry Terminal and just a walking distance from the Sands Casino Macau.

    Where all the alley cats hang out.. The stray cats were so cute :) And yes, another view from the harbour. But there were constructions going on when I went so it wasn't that great. Could have chosen a better time to visit.

    Many mainland China visitors come here. It is the historical place where the British handover Hong Kong to the Chinese happened. The monument is beautiful. But the view of Tsim Sha Tsui from this place is what you want to see.

    Majority are tourists from mainland China. Unless you are a Chinese from China, I guess you can't feel the same way they feel about the Golden Bauhinia statue

    Landmark of Wanchai but there is not much thing to view. At least government needs think about how to ultuze the place to attractive local citizen to visit....
