This is not a huge museum but definitely worth going if you are interested about Chinese tea ware. You can expect some simple presentation with detailed explanation. Clean and tidy environment for you to enjoy the environment and relax a while.

A great place to discover the history of tea and tea related ceramics. Recommended for foreigners as the museum provide a great deal of English language interpretation board.

with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open
