Charming Market

There are few cafe and shop at first floor. It's not the place for shopaholic. However, if you are interesting in fabrics, the second floor has some fabrics shops.

I had been here for a month and had passed it daily so I jumped off tram and went in ! Glad I did it's an interesting building, it reminds me of what may have been a theatre in size and shape but probably always a traditional market. It now has small speciality shop units such as a model bus... More

It is not a western market. Do not be fooled by the name. It is for people who are going to get married in Hong Kong

Go here, on the mezzanine, to shop silk at a good price. Bought 100 % silk which of course burned not melted when tested. Got 15 % off for 3 materials at closing time. App 300 HKD per meter for Chinese silk for blouse prior to bargaining. Tailor charges 750 HKD for less than 1.5 meters of better, high quality... More

Hong Kong lacks heritage architecture. Real estate is so expensive here that old buildings are routinely demolished to make way for the new. Therefore, there is a lack of old architecture to provide a sense of historical context. This makes the Western Market all the more valuable then, as it is a rare example of British architecture to have survived... More

I was attracted by the architecture to walk in, though sis told me most of the things sold here are for tourists as souvenir. It's near the Chinese middle autumn festival thus there're rabbit and light lanterns display in the centre on the ground floors. A few shops selling sculptured stamps with ancient Chinese characters, or other things for those... More

Even if I called Hong Kong for my home for more than 3 years, I did not find Western Market before now. It has Nice Chinese Things like Jade Things and I did not see any other tourists there. Upstairs it is an eating Place. The mall is very clean and Nice, but also very small.

slightly confused by some of the previous reviews. I am sure you can get the fabrics for less if you go into the crowded markets but for a nice environment where you can carefully select your fabrics for furniture, even suits, bedspreads, etc etc, I think you could do a lot worse. spent 2-3 hours there. it is not a...

Staying in Sheung Wan

Neighborhood Profile
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. History enthusiasts will be rewarded with sites of beautiful architecture, reflecting Sheung Wan’s past as one of the earliest settlements by British forces. As night falls, the entertainment scene reveals itself to be just as laid back with its private kitchens, speakeasies and underground bars dotted throughout the area. When in Sheung Wan, everyday feels like the weekend.
