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.

This is just a noisy part of HK, I am not so sure why it is on the list. Is it to do with this special eating place which is located inside the wet market? I guess visitors come to this area as there are a lot of off the street local shops with economy knick knacks.

Chun Yeung Wet Market serves as the Eastern Terminus for the North Point Tram, and as such, is the perfect destination if you wish to experience both the famous tram ride and an authentic Hong Kong market that serves the local people just as it did over one hundred years ago. You won’t find much in the way of high-end... More

I used to live here. Thankfully the Cantonese Opera Theatre is still there, but otherwise there isn't much of interest here. Very local, but without the charm. A typical noisy, polluted, crowded HK neighbourhood, but with more expensive rent. Near the Tin Hau MTR there are lots of restaurants though, which is quite good.
