We followed the walking tour from the Monocle Hong Kong city guide. Hit some fun clothing and home goods stores, a few cafes, and learned a little bit of local history. Multiple options for great coffee too.

This is a must do in HK. Travel at a leisurely pace and see the old HK buildings stubbornly holding their ground against looming high rise.

A short walking distance to the west of Central, Sheung Wan retains the flavors and sights of older days’ Hong Kong. It is also gentrifying fast. In a radius of about 300m centered on the Holiday Inn Soho Express Hotel, you’ll find small hole-in-the-wall” restaurants popular at lunch time with office workers keen to eat for around HKD30, stylish bars...

After visiting the area and Western Market Hall, we took the traditional narrow double decker tram and from upstairs it was interesting to see the traditional Chinese shops drying products in the street

Staying in Sheung Wan

Neighbourhood Profile
Sheung Wan
Unlike most of Hong Kong’s other popular districts, Sheung Wan welcomes wanderers with an easy-going, relaxed atmosphere. Art galleries are plentiful and boutique cafés are tucked away in every side street in the sub district known as “PoHo.” Browse through the vintage clothing and handmade leather goods stores – it’s no surprise fashionistas flock to this area. History enthusiasts will be rewarded with sites of beautiful architecture, reflecting Sheung Wan’s past as one of the earliest settlements by British forces. As night falls, the entertainment scene reveals itself to be just as laid back with its private kitchens, speakeasies and underground bars dotted throughout the area. When in Sheung Wan, everyday feels like the weekend.
