Full of high skyscrapers, these are better seen from the Kowloon side. There's some high-end shopping but they are expensive and do not offer much of a local experience.

A place that you must go when visit Hong Kong but you may not want to stay for long. It is a very hectic workplace for many workaholics in this island. Good to see narrow hill streets with so many buildings. Some are very old...More

A great area to walk through. I would recommend a good guide book. We had Explore Hong Kong from the Insight Guides which had a couple of walking routes which were active and helpful to find things.

For me Central was nothing special. You have a small square and then you have luxury shops. Very big ones.

High- end shops abound. MX is a great restaurant, not too expensive but with big servings. Also try Maria’s egg tart near MX.

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

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

Unless you are in a hotel, there is not really anywhere to leave luggage. Unfortunately in these times there would not be anywhere to leave it, due to the type of things people leave in luggage.
