It is the boutiques, the small art and historical art stores that are making you stroll around for hours and returning on your next trip, as there is always more to discover. The artefacts on display are mostly genuine, and bargaining even in the shops...More

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.
