Gloden Age Tour( Part 1)

Who said less heritages in Hong Kong? The Tourism Board has previous promotion the Golden age tour for tourist enjoyable. The Golden age tour included Western Market, Hollywood Road, Upper Lascar Row and Central Police Station. The tour almost spead your almost a half day. I believe you should prepare the bottle of water and insect repellent, because of it is you can do more exercise in this tour!

First station, Western Market, was declared a historical monument .This Edwardian-style building was built in 1906 as an extension of the then existing Western Market. It was the former site of Harbour Office that had been moved to a reclamation area in Central District for a larger space to cope with its increasing workload.

Leaveing the Western Market, we could go to Bonham Street, the other name is Ginseng & Nest Street. It is special street is buy Chinese health food.Chinese people believe Ginseng could keep your body fit and healty;nest is woman favourable for keep beauty.

Is it special? It is so differcult to see this in modern area. In 1950-1980, Chinese people go to this shop when they are buy the rice. Nowaday, current people go to supermarket to buy package.

How to go:
Sheung Wan A2
