The easiest way to reach Hong Kong Coliseum is by MTR. In my opinion, MTR is unbeatable when it comes to convenience and speed. We can actually arrive Hong Kong Coliseum immediately after Hung Hum MTR Exit D3. Minibus, bus, taxi also available at our disposal.

What to expect?

Hong Kong Coliseum is actually not a tourist spot which is only an interesting place for photographers and someone love lightings at night time especially for architecture enthusiasts.

What will we discover during the journey?

Lighting at night time outside the area of the stadium is beautiful as well as its architecture. Going back to the MTR station, we may pay a visit to The Hong Kong Polytechnic University to appreciate its round shaped architecture structures and PolyU Clock Tower next to Chan Sui Wai Building.

There are few spots close to the MTR station may worthwhile for us to pay a visit. After Exit D1, we can locate a bridge ahead. The bridge has three divisions near the end. The left is heading to Urban Centenary Garden. The center is heading to Hong Kong Museum of History and Hong Kong Science Museum. The right is heading to The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
