Central and Soho

Narrow streets of Soho area

The areas around Central and Soho are exactly what you see in famous pictures of Hong Kong. Narrow and steep streets and shops and buildings lined up on the sides. This area is also well known for its street art and here is why a walking tour here is worth it:

Other than these, Hong Kong boasts of magnificent street art that truly displays their creativity in many other areas. One of such places is Kwun Tong which I did not have a chance to visit.

A walking tour around these areas will surely get you clicking. So, next time you are in Hong Kong, don’t forget to include a day to catch these fascinating street art!
