Ho Tung Mansion

The Peak

Ho Tung Gardens exemplifies a mixture of Chinese and Western cultural elements. 

During Hotung's time, The Peak was reserved for Europeans. Chinese were not allowed to live there. 

Hotung, a Eurasian, was the first non- European to receive permission from the government to build a home in the area. Ho Tung Gardens marked the rising status of the local community.
