This is an easy, mostly flat walking trail around historic areas of Wan Chai that includes temples and market streets still operating today. Despite more recent development, Wan Chai is not short of history. It’s still one of those wonderful parts of Hong Kong where you can see the old world and traditional practices, sitting cheek by jowl alongside the modern and the new. The Heritage Walking Trail takes in 15 sites but the most interesting ones are the small Hung Shing Temple (1847), the large Pak Tai Temple (1862), the colourful Blue, Orange, Green & Yellow tong lau Houses, the lively Tai Yuen Street Open Market and the pretty Gresson flower street. All of the buildings or site that are open to the public, have free entry and the AMO (Antiquities and Monuments Office) government website will direct you to the trail map from (as well as several other heritage walking trails around Hong Kong).

This is a self-guided walking route which takes in 15 historic buildings and points of interest in the Wanchai District of Hong Kong Island. The trail concept was formed in 2009 as a way to promote the local heritage and history while preserving unique architecture found in district. There is a good map available on the Urban Renewal Authority website that can be found fairly easily through google search. It shows the designated walking route with each of the 15 stopping points. These include in order of suggested visit (obviously you can do the trail in reverse as well): Stop 1 - Green House (Comix Home Base) Stop 2 - HK TB Chest & Heart Disease Association Stop 3 - Wanchai Market Building Stop 4 - Blue House Stop 5 - Yellow House Stop A - Pak Tai Temple Stop B - Former Wan Chai Post Office Stop C - Tai Yuen Street Open Market Stop 6 - Nos 186-190 Queen's Road East Shophouses Stop D - Hung Shing Temple Stop 7 - No 60A-86 Johnston Road Shophouse (The Pawn) Stop 8 - No. 18 Ship Street - Shophouse Stop 9 - Nam Kou Terrace Stop E - Gresson Street Market Stop 10 - Star Street Precinct (former No 31 Wing Fung Street) The Wanchai Heritage Trail can be completed by foot in 1.5-2 hours depending on your walking speed and how time you spend at various stops along the way. If you want to stop for food and drinks or stay longer at any of the attractions along the way, best to allow for up to 3 hours to complete the trail. The sponsored map from the Urban Renewal Authorities website includes a second page with brief description of each inclusion on trail. However, for more specifics and details about each place, visit the HK Extras website. There you'll find a considerably more comprehensive report on the various stops to make along the Wanchai Heritage Trail.

One of the interesting stops to make on the Wan Chai Heritage Trail is Gresson Street, which is lined with street market stalls. During Chinese New Year season (late Jan - mid Feb annually), Gresson Street becomes a very attractive flower market. This is a much unknown hot spot to see and potentially purchase traditional Chinese New Year flowers and plants. Smaller in size and scale to places like the Victoria Park and Mongkok Flower markets, you will still find the popular and famous seasonal purchases such as lucky bamboo, kumquat trees, orchids, peach blossoms and other flower and plants associated with CNY. The street is quite photogenic at this time of year for those who intend to visit and spend time in Wan Chai.

Looking for some exercise? Take Wan Chai Gap "road" ( it's really a trail with no cars) up to the top or stop midway and rest your legs and head either direction on the flat trail that traverses the mountain. Lots of runners, walkers, tai chi-ers, and pet walkers. Fantastic views all over. It's In the jungle so it's shaded mostly but it's a sporty hike to get up there from the Wan Chai area. If you are looking for a quiet, aggressive hike, head up and over Wan Chai Gap to Aberdeen Country Park on the south side. Miles and miles of hilly terrain trails, reservoirs and beautiful waterfalls to see. A great way to get out of the city on foot.

We started at Queens Rd east Wanchai and walked up to Kennedy Road, take a left until you reach Bamboo Grove cross over and climb the steps. The trail is well signed. The first 45 minutes is steep and we rested several times. Once you get to Stubbs Rd it is a much easier walk.At the end of the walk we took #6 bus back to Central. The views are lovely and it is a good work out for those who are able. I would suggest you only try this walk if you have a reasonable level of fitness.
