In order to enhance visitors’ experience in Asia Society Hong Kong Center, we are introducing a new version of the Asia Society Hong Kong Center App that is now available on iTunes and Google Play app stores.

The best part about this app is that it doesn't only provide information- it also acts as a personal guide. It provides and entertains visitors with historical background about many different site locations at the Asia Society Hong Kong Center. Visitors no longer have to wait for assigned site tours during the weekend for a personal and verbal description of the Center, but simply do with our app now! The app also acts as an excellent Gallery Docent. It provides elaborate information about the Current Exhibition and all exhibit items with descriptions, images, and audio clippings in English, Cantonese, and Mandarin.

Its rich multimedia experience strongly enriches audience’s experience and knowledge inside and outside of the Center.
