Free Exhibit

Sing Tao News Corp is holding a three-week exhibition at Central Market, allowing the public to revisit key moments in the SAR's post-handover history through reprints from the archives of Sing Tao Daily and virtual reality. The exhibition explores four themes: the beginning of the handover, ongoing prosperity, a fresh start as well as integration between Hong Kong and the mainland.

Visitors can try out the virtual reality headsets, which will allow them to peruse pictures and videos charting the parallel transformations of Hong Kong and the company over the past eight decades.

There is also a photography area where visitors are invited to stand in front of a green screen, on which pictures of iconic monuments such as the Lai Chi Kok Amusement Park and the Kowloon Walled City will be keyed in later on. A printed version of the photo will be available for those who post the picture on Instagram accompanied with the exhibition's hashtag.
