HONG KONG: Wong Chuk Hang District Is Home To Street Art, Attracts Plenty Of Tourists

Since the opening of the MTR’s South Island Line, an increasing number of people are heading towards the Southern District to discover its hidden gems.

Here are five places that could soon put Hong Kong’s Southern District neighbourhoods on the tourist map.

The former industrial zone in Wong Chuk Hang district is home to street art and becomes an instant hit during the HK-Walls event earlier this year drawing local and foreign tourists.

This once-sleepy warehouse-and-factory neighbourhood is adorned with live mural paintings by Hong Kong and international artists, including Thai street artists, Mauy and Jecks who have large murals expressing their innermost feelings through colour, lines and shapes.

The Sensory Zero is gaining a following for the special drinks created by its owner Alvin, a coffee Q Grader and a tea taster, and his partner Dixon.

Try the popular Tea Champagne (Rose Oolong) with tasty dishes such as Beef Stew Super Bowl and Grilled Eel over Rice.

Mirth is a fascinating store that will amaze visitors with its wide array of homeware, stationery and toys.

Among the main attractions are children’s clothing designed by the shop owner, and accessories designed by her daughter.

It is located on M floor, B T Centre, 23 Wong Chuk Hang Road, Wong Chuk Hang.

Drop by the Happy Dinings Place eatery and you will enjoy tantalising delicacies such as pineapple bun with pork chop, chocolate spread and condensed milk toast, and iced milk tea with red beans.

A good destination for satisfying meals, minimeals and light snacks in nondescript surroundings.

It’s on the ground floor of Siu Kwan Mansion, 120 Old Main Street Aberdeen.
