Nothing but fond memories of one of Hong Kong’s most authentic neighbourhoods, Sheung Wan.
When you go from Central in western direction you go through Sheung Wan first followed by Sai Ying Pun and then at sea level Kennedy Town and up the hill to Pok Fu Lam. When I lived on the far western end of the island in the 1990s I commuted through the area best known as the center for dried seafood and its omnipresent scents giving the area a unique and distinctive character. When visiting in December 2016 I noted that, despite some development has remained largely unchanged.
This photo was taken on Des Voeux Road West, a few steps away from Lin Heung Kui, one of Hong Kong’s best and original dim sum places.
