Loved Sheung Wan. Really interesting area. Don't forget to visit the Hot food market for the best curry! 10 minute walk to Subway (which is clean and efficient and easy to use - dont be scared!) Away from corporate bustle and very Chinese :-)

This is one of the most traditional areas of Hong Kong and will definitely be of interest to Westerners. Nice to browse and easy to hop on and off the tram.

Had a restaurant appointment in the area and strolled here. The old antique and dried food streets are here. The newish PMQ and SOHO are mixed together. Not much shopping

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.

Octtopus card questions (3 Replies)
I know the Octopus card has been explained on different topics but I haven't found a definitive answer to my situation so here goes: I am going to stay in HK for 5-7 days. I am going from the airport to Hong Kong Sheung Wan MTR station where my hotel is nearby. I reckon buying an Octopus card of some type is the best option. Of the various types I think it is best to but an airport express $100 HK 1 way and an on loan Octopus for $150 based on what I read. Alternatively: The...More

If you are going to get an Octopus card, there is no need to get a HK$100 Airport Express single ticket because an Octopus card can act as a single AE ticket, just add enough money to the card. A sold Octopus card cannot be returned, therefore no refund on the card cost (or deposit as in the on-loan card) and no refund on unused credits. If you are not travelling alone, AE has a group ticket which is a better deal than the AE travel pass. The breakeven price is not HK$70 if you're not...More
