“Not for the faint hearted”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

Agree absolutely with the manic comments, way too many people in way too small a space, all in a hurry to get somewhere so don't get in their way. An experience, though whether it is positive or negative is up to you. Perhaps I'm just too old, or not interested enough in shopping, but I'd rather enjoy something or somewhere else for my own day out.

“Central is a great place to spend some time during your HK visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

Hong Kong is one of the business centers of the world and as you might imagine, central is the center of it all. Take the mid-level escalators, enjoy some local food, shop for designer handbags and jewelry, and just take it all in.

“Shopping to Skyscrapers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

Visited last May. We liked Central - busy area - tourists - business people - hotels - offices - stores - restaurants - it's all here. Towering skyscrapers are the main reason people either walk into you or stop dead in front of you and you walk into them because all the tourists look up at them! Really nice place to people watch - if you can find somewhere to eat that isn't too busy.

“good area for one day touristical visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

is a good area where to have a walk and seek for some souvenirs, antiquities (pay attention to fakes), old postcards and stamps, and maybe to find a good restaurant for lunch
not for dinner, personally i think best restaurants for dinner, are outside of this area, or maybe in, but in the hotels

dring day the area is chaotic, and sometimes is hard to find a taxy

the area in general in every case, is well serviced and it s very safe

if we wannt a definitiion, it s the shopping area, where some nice skycaprer are, and there are also many galeries

the end
