Sheung Wan, on the western edge of Central, has evolved into one of the city’s hippest neighbourhoods – and is a fun locale to explore. Start on Bonham Strand West to see shops selling pungent abalone and scallops alongside other wall-to-wall dried seafood then head up to the Man Mo Temple on Hollywood Road, a tribute to the God of Literature (Man) and the God of War (Mo) built in the mid 1800s. Just opposite are stairs leading to Upper Lascar Row, the perfect spot to rummage for antiques and Chinese bric-à-brac. Tai Ping Shan Street, nearby, is one of the area’s oldest streets and these days it’s home to a diverse mix of designer stores and cafés.
