    Coolest Hong Kong Neighbourhood Shortlist

    Sheung Wan

    Coffee, creativity and culture collide in Sheung Wan, where trendy cafes and restaurants, small boutiques, and avant-garde art galleries exist alongside the traditional Man Mo Temple and Cat Street’s antiques and curios.

    Repulse Bay

    With the establishment of The Pulse , Repulse Bay went up in the world, welcoming dining, shopping and entertainment options to an area that already boasted easy access to nature-filled hikes and a sprawling golden-sand beach.

    Sai Ying Pun

    Craft beer spots and chic wine bars have taken up residence between the mom-and-pop shops and old-school market stalls of Sai Ying Pun, lending this neighbourhood a distinctive old school-meets-new world charm.

    Wong Chuk Hang

    Wong Chuk Hang is home to a host of creatives, hiding art workshops, design studios, galleries and showrooms, shops and co-working spaces as well as a creative food and beverage scene within the walls of its industrial buildings.

    Sham Shui Po

    This traditional neighbourhood in Kowloon is a shopper’s paradise with everything from hip fashion to electronics and toys found in its narrow alleys and bustling streets – and there’s Michelin-recommended street food to keep visitors going.

    Tin Hau

    A wealth of small restaurants, compact bars, and chic shops thrive in Tin Hau, and this extends to nearby neighbour Tai Hang, where the low-rise, tucked away hood is home to an attractive blend of traditional and contemporary lifestyle offerings.

    Kowloon City

    Art, culture and history come together as Kowloon Walled City Park takes visitors back in time and the Cattle Depot Artist Village combines contemporary art and heritage. Independent boutiques, temples and Thai food add to the eclectic offering.

    Kennedy Town

    The opening of the MTR brought Kennedy Town into the mainstream, but it still retains its traditional character while sporting a slew of hip hangouts as well as a handful of hidden gems.
