Despite its name, the Western district is the part of Hong Kong that has been least affected by western influence. Many of the narrow, jammed streets that climb the slopes of Victoria Peak seem to be light-years from the dazzle of Central, just a 15-minute walk down the road. Though developers are making short work of the traditional architecture, Western's colonial buildings, rattling trams, old-world medicine shops, and lively markets still recall bygone times. Western is a foodie’s idea of heaven, as you’ll soon discover when you step into Sheung Wan Wet Market on Queen’s Road Central or browse the dried delicacies—abalone, bird's nests, sea cucumbers, mushrooms—in shops around Wing Lok Street and Des Voeux Road.
