I’ve been to Chinese University of Hong Kong a few times long ago, but haven’t had a chance to explore in recent years. I recently was staying in the area and thought I should probably go and do a campus tour to see what’s new.
To my surprise I discovered a museum in the campus that I wasn’t aware of and that I found to be brilliant – The Museum of Climate Change. There should really be more museums about this topic world wide, and not just as a sub section in a Science Museum, so this initiative is very appreciated. It’s quite comprehensive, all of it both in Chinese and English, with some terrific displays that explain some of the main issues and highlight specific issues for Hong Kong and research conducted at CUHK and HK based universities.
I explored around a bit, visited the museum, and walked back down through the garden paths. It’s still far more “local feel” than HKUST and HKU, especially the cafeterias, yet has its own charm, and it really does feel like a campus. The views from up the hill towards the Sha Tin bay area are terrific.
Let’s start the campus walk…
