Old Town Central - Where worlds Collide

Old Town Central

By Weekend Weekly

Beneath the stunning skyline of Central, history, arts, food, and culture flourish in one of the city’s oldest and most archetypal neighbourhoods. East and West, past and present, traditions and innovation, excitement and tranquillity — this is where Hong Kong’s contrasting attributes coexist, blend and collide. And as a microcosm of the city, it’s a perfect starting point for visitors.

These self-guided walks explore the heart of the neighbourhood – the history-steeped area outlined by Wyndham Street, Caine Road, Possession Street and Queen's Road Central, with Hollywood Road, one of the first roads built in the colonial era, coursing through the middle.

You can follow the five routes in this guide to discover heritage, food, arts and hidden treasures in the warren of streets and alleys.  Along the way, you will bear witness to the dramatic transformations that have characterised Central’s short but colourful history and explore a city that is always changing but never detached from its origins.
