Elegant, eclectic and hip, Sheung Wan is currently where Hong Kong's hipsters hang out. It is definitely a place to see and be seen with its roaring cafe culture, trendy art galleries and designer pop-up stores juxtaposed against Chinese medical halls, antique shops and the long-standing Man Mo temple that has been around since 1847.

Sheung Wan is a great area to observe local life. One of its claims to fame is its shops selling traditional Chinese medicine. The Queen Street Rest Garden has over 100 plants used in Chinese medicine on display with explanation of their uses. The plant display is at the Bonham Street West entrance, near the Ibis hotel. The park can... More

Sheung Wan is home to streets after streets of antiques, curiosities, vintage fashion, independent fashion labels and cafes. For antiques and collectibles that will definitely spruce up your home decor, check out Hollywood Road and Lascar Row. If you're into vintage fashion and independent fashion labels, be sure to check out Aberdeen Street. I spent an entire afternoon just hopping... More

This is Hong Kong in my mind. Hectic, huge buildings, traffic, lots of people. Plenty of shops for those who enjoy that kind of things, but just walking around is wonderful.

I stayed in an apartment in Sheung Wan and loved every moment of it.The area is filled with interesting sights and smells. The streets are lined with medicinal/herbal shops, dried food shops and small restaurants. The area is still close to everything as the MTR makes it easy to get to and from the area. I also walked from Sheung... More

this is such a great part of Hong Kong. So much going on around this area and just an amazing part of the working part of the city. I think that you can actually buy anything in this area. Be sure to just wander the streets and explore as every alley and intersection reveals something new and unusual.

This is a great area to stroll around and take in the sights and smells -- a nice part of old Hong Kong. The dried food/dried fish stores were amazing, and we had the good fortune to have a local guide who could tell us what the benefits and uses were for most of the products.

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.
