I absolutely love this area and finding new things to see and explore in my free time. Have been living in the area for the last couple of months, Sheung Wan has a nostalgic feel about it - with Des Voeux Road, Connaught Road, Bonham Strand East and Queen's Road Central running parallel to each other all selling dried seafood,...

Every street has its own magical surprise. It's so nostalgic to walk along those narrow streets and looking at all the things on display by the shop owners. Delightful for those who are not looking for modern architecture and high-end merchandise.

I love Sheung Wan, around every corner is a new delight. Food, shopping, just general hustle and bustle. The trams are here, easy access to anywhere in HK. This is part of old HK as I remember it. And its fun!

Having previously stayed in Kowloon, this was my first time staying in Sheung Wan area on the western side of Hong Kong Island. I have to say, I loved it here and will choose this area again. There are many small neighborhood shops, some very interesting to see that you would not normally see in a central downtown area. Holiday... More

This is my favorite place in the entire Hong Kong. It's really nice to walk here and look at all the shops. We eat fish ball noodle at one of the shop and it was delicious, but I guess everything you eat here is nice. Take your time to stroll in this area that have so many staircase that give... More

Our hotel was located in HK Island and in Sheung Wan. It's quite peaceful hood and very easy to go by ding dong tram from places to other. Most of our shoppings were done in Kowloon but this side of HK isn't bad either. I believe you can see "normal" chinese life in this side of HK.

This is definitely the most hipster and indie place around Hong Kong. Walk up to Gough street and you'll find a different picture of this city + two famous eating places - beef noodles and tomato noodles! Pls note that the queues are super long so do go earlier! Most would recommend Hollywood St, but I would recommend the booths... More

If visiting Hong Kong, it is really best to take a bug, tram or walk through all the different neighborhoods because they are all so unique. Close to central, Sheung Wan is one of the busiest places in the city and there are a lot of great shops to get jewelry or really anything you are looking for to bring... More
