Explore the Eclectic Neighborhood of Sheung Wan

Asia Talk-HK2MarA place that is elegant, exotic and hip. The old neighborhood of Sheung Wan is an eclectic blend of shopping experiences dominated by traditional Chinese beliefs and businesses. For those visiting the area, we suggest starting with the historic Western Market. Here guests can discover an array of handicraft shops nestled inside an Edwardian-style mall. We then continue to Dried Seafood Street, Wing Lok Street and Bonham Strand West, frequented by locals in order to purchase products for aromatic soups and traditional tonics.

An intriguing fact to keep in mind is that Sheung Wan was one of the earliest settled places by the British and belonged to the historical Victoria City. A plaque to this effect can be found in Hollywood Road Park at the top of Possession Street.
