slightly confused by some of the previous reviews. I am sure you can get the fabrics for less if you go into the crowded markets but for a nice environment where you can carefully select your fabrics for furniture, even suits, bedspreads, etc etc, I think you could do a lot worse. spent 2-3 hours there. it is not a...

Not too many heritage buildings in HK - they prefer to demolish and replace by multi-storey concrete and glass. This used to be a west end island market, but it is now low end tourist shops and fabric stalls. The top floor provides an Interesting choice for a wedding, but the food is not the greatest.

This market seems to be more historically meaningful than anything else. I bought some post cards at one of the shops and I didn't find it very interesting, though, to make a special effort to visit. But the architecture is said to be Edwardian Style. So a photo trip might be more worth it.

We were very surprised when we visited the Wester Market. On the third floor is a restaurant. It was lunch time so we set down in a nice atmosphere. The menue is of all Chinese tastes and you have to check the boxes on the menue for ordering. Tables are decked with linen and nice cutlery. But more important also... More

Like others have said the colonial style building is lovely and well maintained. Expecting to find market style shops inside (with market prices!) we were disappointed to find very little of interest and although I love fabric and dressmaking, I found the fabrics here so overpriced and outdated and was extremely disappointed. Luckily we were exploring the Hollywood Road area... More

its a nice building of historical value but essentially its pretty hollow. the value of this attraction is about 15mins so whilst i dont recommend going out of your way to see it, if your in the area, stop by and give it a once over.

Western Market opens at 10AM. I proceeded with the Walking Tour around Sheung Wan starting off with the nearby Cafes to grab a breakfast. Upon entering the Western Market, I expected more of it inside. The colonial structure of its exterior does not really reflect what it offers at the inside.

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.
