The Government House of Hong Kong is located on Upper Albert Road in Central and faces Victoria Peak. Its floor space amounts to 24,000 square meters (about 6 acres). It used to be the residence of the Governors of Hong Kong and was a place to receive royalty and VIP guests. Important ceremonies were held here as well including the annual Honor Awarding Ceremony and the Olympic Games Flag Handover Ceremony.Over the years the style of the building changed many times. The main building is a combination of rich colonial features mixed with Britain and Asian styles because whenever the owner changed, the appearance of the building was altered. Almost every Governor renovated the house according to his preferences and needs.
