The western end of Hong Kong's very first road
Jun 2020
The historic Queen's Road runs along the northern end of Hong Kong Island. This was the very first official road in the city. Originally constructed between 1841-45 in what was then Victoria City. Interestingly, sections of the original road marked the shoreline for Victoria Harbour before large scale land reclamation efforts were made during the 19th century. Now, the road is noticeably inland in most locations, quite far from the present day harbour shoreline.

Today Queen's Road is divided up into four sections, including Queen's Road West which starts approximately at Possession Street in Sheung Wan to the east, transecting Sai Ying Pun, HK University and Shek Tung Tsui until intersecting with Des Voeux Road in Kennedy Town to the west.

In this area of Hong Kong Island, Queen's Road West passes through commercial and residential areas, local and western restaurants, some coffee shops, bars, a few hotels, lots of local market and retail shops, access a couple parks and even an open street art area (Art Lane) in Sai Ying Pun. You'll see a more local, casual way of life along Queen's Road West compared to Queen's Road Central where the heavier concentration of skyscrapers begin and much more international commerce and activity influence begins to show.

Come here to buy all sorts of varieties of teas and infusions
Jun 2019 • Business
There are plenty of stores along this street, although I was particularly pleased to find just the ones I was looking for -- those that sell all sorts of teas and infusions. Despite the language barrier, hand signals and Google Translate allowed the helpful seller in one store to explain to me what different types of products I could mix to prepare different types of teas and infusions that would be helpful for various ailments people may have (high blood pressure, fat reduction, etc.). I'm not really sure about all that, but it was interesting to get the explanations and I brought back a number of different types of berries, leaves and flowers to try out...

Satellite District
Apr 2018 • Friends
The Queen's Road West of Hong Kong connects the West end of the Queen's Road Central all the way to the Belcher Street in the Western District of Hong Kong. It is a satellite district with almost everything for the common people except the theatres and cinemas which were actually once very popular there some decades ago. Eateries of all styles, schools of all levels from the kindergarten to the university are within walking distance, and flowery parks, libraries, churches, hotels, massage centers, clinics, butchers, grocery markets, shopping malls, temples, teahouses, coffee shops, antique shops, banks, pet shops, even the shops for folk arts and incense sticks, etc. can be found along this Queen's Road West. One block to the north of the Queen's Road West is the tram road (Des Voeux Road West) and the waterfront. The residential density is high and the street traffic is busy even with three different MTR stations. Visitors should also be aware that there are some hawkers and shops with or without shopname banners selling counterfeit or inferior household products to cheat innocent consumers' money. Do not trust their imposed price tags or banners. If you are interested in anything selling at those questionable vendors, insist to confirm the actual price before even touching anything.

See listings for Western District and Sheung Wan instead
Apr 2014 • Couples
This TA listing refers to a boundary point on Hong Kong island that was referred to as 'West Point'.

In the 19th century, this marked the northern most boundary of the western half of Hong Kong Island. It can be found approximately at the junction of Des Voeux Road and Western Street. However, the reference has more or less lost its meaning as the city now sprawls in all directions of this old reference point.

For better and more updated information about what to do/see in this area of the city, see TA listings and Discover Hong Kong Website information for Western District, Sheung Wan, Sai Wan and Kennedy Town.

The Tams are the best part! Just get a tram and cruise through, it is just a passing scene of Hong Kong's new rich.
