I was at the Forever Flowering Golden Bauhinia square where I watched the interesting flag raising ceremony. After the ceremony, I decided to hang around. At first, it was to enjoy the magnificent sea view of Victoria Harbour. While I was there I found another awesome Thing To Do In Hong Kong. And that is to enjoy the Ani-Com Park@Harbour”FUN”.
Somehow, during my research on places to visit, I was so enamoured by the Golden Bauhinia Sculpture that I missed this fun & entertaining park. It is filled with statues of famous local comic characters. When you visit this square, do not miss this sight.
Join me in this awesome adventure!

What is Ani-Com Park@Harbour”Fun” All About?
At first glance, when I saw the famous local comic characters here, I thought this is another Avenue of Comic Stars. And just a variation. But I was mistaken.
This park features 30 classic popular Ani-Com characters in various poses as well as in action. The action poses reflect the Hong Kong culture and way of life. For example, Liao Yuan Huo and On On playing the local favorite pastime that is mahjong.
The core theme of the park is also to encourage visitors to pose with the sculptures and take selfies. Immerse your friends and you in the world of Ani-Com characters. Better still, if taking with their favorite cartoon characters.
There are many characters to choose from. There is Old Master Q who has not only been in comics but also made into a live action movie. And there are Cloud, Tiger, On On, Miss 13 Dots, Sau Nga Chun, Little Horse, Q Boy and many more to take selfies with.
Travel Tip – This is definitely one of the most Instagrammable spots in Hong Kong! Take plenty of memorable selfies!
