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.

There's nothing special here beyond the fact that the ferry terminal is here. Otherwise there isn't really anything to set this area about any other in HK

If you're not staying or doing anything here, and just passing through, Sheung Wan may seem to be just another neighbourhood on Hong Kong island. It might benefit from a bit of urban planning/decor, but that is not unique to this area, nor to Asia. This is home to the nearest MTR station to where I have been staying of... More

This is exactly what I imagined Hong Kong to be like. Busy streets, trams (ding ding), dried fish shops, medicine/herb shops and general chaos of a busy, working-class neighborhood. There are lots of places to eat authentic (and inexpensive) Chinese food. My advice is to just wander the streets and take in the atmosphere.

A great place to walk through and soak up the atmosphere. I stayed in the area 1974 and it still has the same feel to it. Dried fish shops, medicine shops, the tram running through the area. Some of the back streets look like hey havent changed in years. Worth a visit to get away from the touristy areas

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.
