Filled with shops selling all sorts of local fair, you can get a feel for the local life as you wander down the main street, don't forget to have a... More

I did a lot of research before I left on my trip to figure out the best area to stay in while in Hong Kong. I made the right choice. A low key areas compared to the rest of Hong Kong. Everything you need is here. Metro station, banks, convenience stores, local restaurants. Antique shops abound in sheung wan.

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.
