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

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
