“Get off the main street”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Its a very busy shopping area. But once you get off the main street, this is when the area becomes interesting. Good restaurants as well as some interesting shops.
Central is also the place that you can catch the ferry from to Kowloon side.
Central also has a bus terminal located near the MTR station.

“Shops, shops and shops!!!”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

There is brand shops everywhere, which is really boring, no interest ...

I didn't get excited about this place.

The only good thing is lounge restaurant in surroundings...

There is no charm, Got a feeling of fake over there !!!

“very polluted”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Pollution is awful due to "canyon" effects of tall buildings and narrow roads. Takes only 10 minutes to feel the polluted air. Every building shopping arcade have the same chains.

Unless one has to do business , stay out of the area

“A little old and a little new”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

the mix in this area is interesting but you should get off the main drags and check out some of the side streets. you will find some interesting places where the locals eat. Also some unusual shops with all kinds of stuff. take a walk on the unbeaten paths

“Fabulous”

Centrao district was fabulous. Lots of great shops, restaurants and enjoyed the hustle and bustle. Very vibrant and easy to access via MTR. Definitely a must see!
