Umbrella Revolution Occupation Experience



If you missed the awesome Umbrella Revolution, now is your chance! This original Occupy Central Freedom Quarter tent is now available for rent to rebels and dreamers to relive the experience. Who says Occupy Central is not good for the economy? Occupy this tent now!



Or if you prefer something more comfortable, Occupy Mong Kok or Admiralty, our comfortable rooms with revolutionary art from the Mong Kok and Admiralty occupations.

Address:Hennesy Road, near exit B of Causeway Bay MTR. Phone: 5349 5959 map

Or if you are tired of fighting, try this secluded retreat on car-free Lamma Island, home of retired revolutionaries and hippies.
