Sheung WanHong Kong

Beneath glass-fronted skyscrapers and shopping malls is a lively district where the businesses of traditional Chinese traders and creative designers flourish. 

Discover traditional Hong Kong while touring the streets and markets of Sheung Wan. Possession Point in this area is where Hong Kong was ceded to British settlers in 1841. Today it’s a captivating mix of British architecture and Chinese shops, food markets, pop-up stores and trendy bars.

Set in a striking Edwardian-style building, Western Market features handicraft and fabric merchants. Witness the ancient Chinese tradition of herbal remedies on Medicine Street. Browse for ceramics, coins, jewelry, silk products, woodcarvings and other antiques and curios on Cat Street. Independent galleries, pop-ups and lifestyle shops line up along Tai Ping Shan Street.

Follow fishy aromas to Dried Seafood Street and view stalls packed with dried abalone, fungi, scallops, abalone and more. Graham Street Market at the border with Central is a sensory overload of fresh fruits and vegetables, meats and seafood. Movie buffs might recognize the market from its appearance in Jackie Chan’s action comedy Rush Hour 2. Head to Gough Street to satisfy your taste buds on noodles, dumplings and sweet treats.

Get acquainted with the life and legacy of Dr. Sun Yat-sen, a founding father of the Republic of China, on the Sun Yat-sen Historical Trail. It incorporates significant places related to Sun Yat-sen’s work, along with local artwork. Observe traditional Chinese spirituality at Man Mo Temple, famous for its suspended incense coils. Learn about the evolution of Chinese and Western medicine at the Hong Kong Museum of Medical Sciences.

Experience Hong Kong’s renowned nightlife scene in SoHo. Here, popular cocktail lounges and wine bars offer happy hour drinks and late-night entertainment. The serene pathways and ponds of leafy Hollywood Road Park present a pleasant change of scenery. This was where the British Navy landed when it was originally a waterfront area called Possession Point.

Located west of Central, Sheung Wan is served by the Sai Ying Pun and Sheung Wan metro stations. Take a ferry to Macau from the Hong Kong Macau Ferry Terminal along Victoria Harbour.
