This is more relaxed and less glitzy than other parts of HK. It's semi-suburban, residential, and low-key. It's worth a visit if you want to see normal life in HK. Prices are lower for general items, as the locals aren't exactly Hong Kong's wealthiest people. That being said, it's safe and pleasant to be here. A short visit and a... More

Taking the tram system or "Ding Ding" to North Point is a trip worth doing especially if you can sit up top at the front. As you approach North Point you see many local markets selling everything from fish and meat to fruit and veg... All fresh. North Point is a busy area not really a touristy spot but certainly...

North Point is a district on Hong Kong Island situated between Causeway Bay and Quarry Bay. There are a few hotels in North Point but this is mostly a residential area. There is a nice wet market on King's Road called Chun Yeung Market and quite a few local eateries in North Point. You can see how locals go about... More

On our way to Tung Po seafood restaurant at Java Road, we decided to pop into the nearby wet market street. If you take an east-bound tram from Causeway Bay, it will make a stop off King's Road into Chun Yeung street. Just get off and wander around to see how the locals live, shop and eat. Vegetables, meats, seafood... More

Having lived in HK for about a year now, we have been to a lot of areas already. However, a quick stop over on the way to Tai Koo (two MTR stops away) showed as a pretty local side of HK. There are wet markets and some (about two blocks on Marble Steet) typical vendors selling tshirts, bags, and other... More

This is just a local area (the "older" residential area to be precise) which I can't even think of one thing that a tourist may find interesting. Just modest shops and restaurants to serve the local community and if you are a toursit, I can't see why you need to visit here.

Not something I will recommend people to go to, not unless you are living in that area. What you see in that area, you can find other parts of Hong Kong.

Little known about North Point is its Shanghainese heritage. Many people from mainland China came to this part of the island during the Chinese Civil War. For the curious explorer. Great restaurants.

I like the markets in North Point, and it's so lively there. It is not invaded by too many shopping malls yet.
