Owner description: Western District is the area least influenced by Western culture. It includes several markets.

So I went on Monday. Apparently this is the worst time to go because its so dead. Again, apparently young local and westerners alike hang out in this area on Saturday and Sunday and then Monday is a day of rest. It is not as busy and therefore it is more difficult to get a real sense of the area.

We wandered around the Western District and enjoyed all the sights and sounds of the markets and architecture. Worth a wander to take in some HK culture that is less impacted like annoying western tourists like me.

There are a lot of coffee shops spring up in and around this area and there are a lot of typical "Hong Kong eateries" here as well. Head over to Hillier Street and you will see, then walk up Ladder Street to discover the antique shops, Hollywood Road, Man Mo Temple and then head towards Tai Ping Shan Street and continue to explore up the hill for the little coffee shops. It's a much quieter area throughout the week than busy Mong Kok and Causeway Bay if you want to avoid the crowd for a day or two. After your self exploring tour, head over to Soho (walk along Bridges Street then into Staunton Street) for a well earned drink to relax!
