The Hidden Treasures of Central and Sheung Wan (aka Let's Go Shopping)
Hong Kong was once a renowned shopping paradise. Good stuff with a reasonable price was the incentive of a Hong Kong trip. Diversity of roadside shops not only pleased the tourists, but also a fond part of our memory. However, with the soaring rental, only big brand chain stores can be found in the main street. The old and character shops are surviving persistently at the edge of the city.
These old mom-and-pop stores and character shops, or small shops, are mostly founded with cultural heritage, tradition, passion and dreams. With the rapid urban development and skyrocketing rental, the owner of small shops are well aware of their lifespan may not be lasting. However, they commit to fight till the end.
