One of the oldest districts in Hong Kong Island, Sheung Wan is the place to stay for those wishing to experience total cultural immersion in an environment which truly defines Hong Kong. Colonial chinese architecture blends subtly with its contemporary counterparts, while rows of dried food stalls and traditional chinese medicine shops can be seen selling their exotic goods and wares. Alongside these ancient trades is the new and exciting PoHo in Po Hing Fong, where the SoHo restaurant and bar scene has spilled over into Sheung Wan to liven up the neighbourhood!
Living in Sheung Wan can be a more economical alternative to the popular Mid-levels, Central or Wan Chai districts, yet remains in close proximity to these city centers. Transportation is exceptionally convenient and the Hong Kong Macau Ferry Terminal is located nearby for those weekend vacations abroad. Public leisure facilities are available at the Sheung Wan Sports Centre along the Queens Road and medical services at Tung Wah Hospital on Po Yan Street.
As a general guide, apartments on the west-end of Des Voeux Road Central, Wing Lok Street or Bonham Strand are positioned next to the MTR exits, tram and bus routes at great convenience. Apartments located farther to the south-west on the west-end of Hollywood Road, Possession Street, New Street or Tai Ping Shan Street benefit from the PoHo and SoHo restaurant and bar scene.
