“Okay Malls and shops.”
Reviewed 1 June 2012

Okay Malls and shops, but not much else to see I'm afraid. However, the malls are reasonable new and some of the shops do offer occasional deals.

“A local experience”
Reviewed 26 March 2012

Nothing spectacularly amazing but it is a nice, cosy neighbourhood and a sneak peek into the life of a common Hong Konger. We enjoyed a dim sum brunch in one of the neighbourhood dim sum restaurants, where the elderly locals hang out and catch up with their pals over dim sum and tea. We had to share a table with two elderly gentlemen and it was interesting to experience the local lifestyle. The servings was huge! We ordered only 11 items and we couldn't finish what we had ordered (we usually could)! We walked out to the street and the local marketplace, and saw people in a long queue, they were apparently voting their political opinions. It is amazing! We don't really get to do this in Singapore! There were lots of street eats, such as curry fishballs and other items in a satay stick, HK pancakes, Japanese deep fried cuttlefish, and lots of cha chan tengs (HK local food chains where simple food such as noodles with hot dogs and eggs, and toast, are sold).We explored some of the neighbourhood malls (rather old malls, not the newer malls linked with Nina Plaza) so don't go expecting swanky malls similar to Sogo or Harbour City) and came across this small stall, manned by a middle-aged lady, who is selling Chinese sweets (sticky sweets made of syrup, sesame seeds, peanuts and dessicated coconut) from Yuen Lang. It is so good (bad for your teeth though, I am sure, but absolutely worth the visit to the dentist!) Hubby thinks it is the most fun part of our HK trip, as he was tensed about losing our kids in Disneyland and Ocean Park, and the shopping which was very very good for wifey was not that fantastic for him, especially after wifey made him stop by Chanel at Harbour City to buy a wallet and a 2.55 bag =) and then, 6 pairs of shoes at a Japanese boutique... Try heading to Tsuen Wan - for a truly authentic HK experience.
