The Central Business district of Hong Kong – Central, has the history of trade and financial activities dates back to the British colonial era in 1841. Besides the tall buildings and the crowded people, we saw some street artists because they are legal (unlike Taiwan, you need the licence). Some of them play the violin, guitar and these kind of special instrument. 🙂 🙂
Ding ding (叮叮), Hong Kong Tramways, it has over 100 years of history and also the best way to travel around the city. Its double-decker trams was my favorite part of this lovely transportation!
I love randomly walking to an unknown street and to discover their humanity and lifestyles, grocery stores had the smell of pickled dried fish, traditional Chinese antique stores, art galleries…etc.
Afternoon’s Lan Kwai Fong & Pottinger Street.
Lan Kwai Fong used to be dedicated to hawkers before World War 2. But now it cultivated the culture of chilling, drinking and clubbing. So we decided to check it out in the “afternoon time“. The funny thing is that, it was just as normal as the normal streets in Central. :p
Here’s the “night version” of LKF that we went at the last night, huge differences, right? 🙂
My local Hong Kong friend told me that Pottinger Street is also better known as the Stone Slabs Street. It was rare to have granite stone steps, there’s some restaurants, stores and bars around the street as well.
Dr. Sun Yet-sen Museum is also a worth-visited spot in Central, Hong Kong, Dr. Sun Yet-sen was the founder of Chinese Republic in 1912, based in Hong Kong. Unfortunately, it wasn’t open when we got there.
