A contrast of old and new, a fusion of East and West, Hong Kong is best experienced through its colourful neighbourhoods. From the coolest bars and restaurants, to world-class museums and historic temples, explore the city beyond its famed skyscrapers.
West Kowloon is a coastal neighbourhood which incorporates the West Kowloon Cultural District, as well as historical areas such as Yau Ma Tei and Jordan.
It is a neighbourhood where history blends seamlessly with modern art and culture. Here, you will find world class museums alongside family-run restaurants and traditional workshops.
One of the oldest yet also most dynamic districts in the city, Old Town Central — encompassing the sloped streets and small alleys of Central and Sheung Wan — encapsulates Hong Kong’s rich and diverse spirit. A place where century-old temples share the same streets as fashion-forward concept stores, this colourful neighbourhood is at once old and new while also being proudly local and unmistakably global.
Known as a working class neighbourhood, Sham Shui Po’s old world charms, with its historical buildings and traditional street vendors, sit harmoniously with trendy cafes and design enclaves.
Not surprisingly, this area continues to evolve into one of the city’s hippest places to visit.
