I love the Old Hong Kong. Love the buildings and the streets in Sheung Wan. If I'm given a chance to travel again, I will definitely go again.

The district has many historical relics. Buildings are distinctive from the skyscrapers in Central. Streets are narrow and old. A good place to go to experience historical Hong Kong.

Nice area where you can do a little shopping but I didn't appreciate it so much. There are not so many things to do.

The electric trains are always passing, the crosswalks are full of people and the name of the roads are always along the road witch is very helpful when walking by hong kong's central streets. The only bad detail is that i found very hard to see where were the subway entrances. some times they blend in with the buildings' entrances.

It took me awhile to get my bearings and how the different areas meet and the transition between them Sheung Wan Has its own stop on the Ocean line at the Central end but as you go further west the character changes. The corporate high street gives way o more independents and eating places. There is a Japanese on the... More

A great place to visit to see parts of old Hong Kong. There is a great range of shops, restaurants and cafes and they have the tram system running through which is great to have a ride on.

There are lots and lots of shops selling dried seafood. I'm not sure if competition drives the prices down as we didn't compare. But it definitely is interesting taking a stroll and absorbing the interesting sights and smells...imagine dried gecko being sold in the shops! Good to explore if you are in the neighbourhood (we came for dim sum at... More

You can find many shops selling dried seafood here. Take a stroll in the narrow side streets and savour the sights. Few speak English here as you moved from Central area. But don't let this deter your adventurous spirit. Whilst in HK try to immerse as much as possible. I understand if you can't as one of my close friends... 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.
