Experience this area and enjoy its cosy bars or cafes but then your need may be along the lines of trendy restaurants that have excellent value lunch set meals after visiting the various boutiques! Night time is different and maybe more exciting, so try out this area.

The great attraction here is the longest outdoor escalator in the world. Exciting in a "can't do this anyplace else" kind of way. So much reminded me of Hong Kong back "Noble House" style for any James Clavell fans out there. Very distinct scent in some areas along the escalator!

I loved walking through Soho finding quirky little cafes and restaurants. Also a great place for some unique souvenirs. This is like the arts district, with a few top quality galleries around

Wander around Soho, then go beyond (head towards PMQ); there's lots to discover. BUT and here's a BUT - it can be a bit hilly (think San Francisco) so make sure you wear comfortable shoes.

SOHO means South of Hollywood Road. You'll see lots of bars, galleries, and dining places in this district. There are a lot of foreigners who hangout in this neighbourhood and you'd think you're not in Asia when you go around meeting all sorts of nationalities. You can get to SOHO thru the mid-levels escalators right after getting off at Central... More

Loved strolling through the streets of Soho, shopping as the locals do, finding your raw/fusion foodie restaurants (yummie), going up- and downhill like an Asian episode of "the streets of...." and finding a delicious cup of coffee. But Soho is also a mix of shopping malls, little parks to relax, colonial heritage, the peak tram, world's largest escalator, bird's nest... More

loss yourself in the array of small streets with old fashion Chinese shops mixing with contemporary fashion ones. It worth walking around with no map open and get lost in small alleys to enjoy vibrant HK!

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
