Taikoo Shing & Quarry Bay

Quarry Bay is the area below Mount Parker in the Eastern district of Hong Kong Island. It was originally a bay where quarried rocks were transported by sea, but is now filled in by land reclamation.

The Eastern part was largely owned by Swire, so many parts and facilities are given its Chinese name 'Taikoo'.

Originally there was Taikoo dockyard and Taikoo sugar factory but now these have given way to the huge residential / commercial developments of Taikoo Shing, Cityplaza and the modern commercial glass towers of Taikoo Place. Tong Chong Street is now home to lots of new restaurants and on some Sundays there is a lively Farmers’ Market.



Residential Blocks

The two largest residential developments in the area are Kornhill and Taikoo Shing. The many towers of Taikoo Shing are situated around the different phases of Cityplaza shopping mall. This is a large shopping complex containing many international stores, restaurants and an ice rink. Other modern estates are the Floridian and the Orchards.

Schools

The main international school in the district is Delia School of Canada with both primary and secondary departments. It is located in the heart of Taikoo Shing.



Facilities

Other facilities in the neighbourhood are Quarry Bay Park containing a tennis court, football park, basketball pitch, cycling track, tai chi garden, children's playground and seafront promenade. There is also a sports centre and a public library. There are two luxury hotels in the area - Hotel East in Taikoo Shing and Harbour Plaza.

Transportation

There is excellent public transport to the area. Both Quarry Bay and Taikoo Shing have MTR stations, Quarry Bay being on both island line and Tseung Kwan O line and Taikoo Shing on the Island line. The tram between Kennedy Town and Shau Kee Wan runs through the district tram. First Bus, Citybus and KMB (cross harbour only) all have routes in the area.
