A little slice of old HK.

I love Sheung Wan! Catch a tram, visit the Market with all the beautiful fabrics and just soak up the ambience of old HK but with plenty of new shops popping up!

At the Western Market end of the tram past Central you'll find a small covered market where you can buy brilliant fabrics. There is a good bakery on the ground floor for an afternoon tea set if you need to rest. Across the street is the dried seafood area, where you'll see many different seafoods drying and for sale.

The buses are a mess, taxi is hard to find! The buses change route without any notification, it did not go to the route as planned and we didn't know until we find ourselves way off from the map. Not much shopping in Sheung Wan, probably just the famous lao po bing.

Des Voeux Road West is famous for over a hundred traditional Chinese wholesalers or retailers of dried sea products, pickles, salt fish, sausages and many others. A must for explorers.

This area is much older than other parts of the Island. However it's very crowded and happening. I did find a lot of stores that are cheaper than Central here. There are many road side eateries that you should try here.

Not a special place. Towards the end of the Tramways. Can't see anything much to do here. As a Tourist I wouldn't be heading to wards it.

I love this place...you can get lost for hours whether looking for a place to eat, going to a hip bar, buying stuffs like calligraphy or art supplies, old vintage trinkets, curios and decors, china, or food! If you're into arts, there are galleries that teach Chinese painting for a day! You can either go there via MTR and get... More

Amazing little spot. Lots to see and do on HK Island. Tons of tourists though as per normal on HK Island between Causeway Bay and Sheung Wan. If you like people watching though hit this up.

This is such a great HK Island neighbourhood with wonderful contrasts: hip bars and restaurants, streets with shops selling traditional Chinese medicine, streets with shops selling dried fish and seafood and swallows' nests. I like to go up or down Hollywood Road with its many art galleries, visit Man Ho temple on the same road, stroll through Upper Lascar Row... More

Staying in Sheung Wan

Neighborhood 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.
