Every district in Hong Kong has its share of interesting street markets, some more important to the local communities than others. In the Central district of Hong Kong, several street markets from the past remain. However, the majority have given way to souvenir and non-traditional enterprise. Whereas, a visit to the historic Graham Street Markets allows visitors a look into Hong Kongs living past. Here, visitors will be exposed to small businesses, owned for generations, dealing vegetables, seafood, dry goods and other consumables in the same manner in which they have for decades.
A walk down the historic Graham Street, here the same families have owned and operated market stalls for generations is to really see part of Hong Kong as it was and has been through the decades, beyond the path of the cities economic and societal modernizations. This is particularly ironic, being so closely located to the towering skyscrapers of the Central district, the financial hub of Hong Kong and much of Asia.
The Graham Street markets are located between Queen's Road and Hollywood Road, the street where you can find the interesting antique and curios market and not too far from the Soho Mid-level escalator and other Central area attractions. It makes a fine visit for those visiting this area of Hong Kong.
