Situated on the western half of Hong Kong Island, Pok Fu Lam is a picturesque oceanfront residential enclave that occupies a hilly, green expanse. The area’s loosely defined boundaries extend outward from the Hong Kong University campus located at the far end of the Midlevels district and include the home of digital Hong Kong, the Cyberport complex which hosts a hotel, offices, shops and a cinema complex.
The accommodation choices available at this tranquil and lush, neighborhood include prestigious townhouses, larger colonial-era residences (most bear sea-facing balconies), and relatively new, amenity-filled luxurious and modern high-rises. Many of the area dwellings offer panoramic views of the South China Sea and the busy Lamma Channel and are thus, much coveted.
Aside from these private apartment complexes, Pok Fu Lam also plays host to a few large public housing estates.The area is also home to the-the only surviving indigenous Chinese village on Hong Kong Island, Pok Fu Lam village that is laid out in the ancient Qing Dynasty village pattern.
