Take a walk down Soho

A great blend of the traditional and the modern, Soho, derived from its location: South of Hollywood Road, offers an amazing glimpse into a Hong Kong that is delicately balanced between its colonial past and futuristic present. While you will be undoubtedly be enthralled by an array of restaurants, bars, nightclubs, art galleries and antique stores lining Staunton Street and Elgin Street, be prepared to be charmed by hidden wonders such as Cantonese-style old neighborhoods and residential houses that are cozily cocooned amidst this new development.

This striking contrast between the old and the new makes for some great sight-seeing, especially on foot. The presence of the Central-Mid-Levels escalator, built in 1993, allows for convenient access to the historical and modern attractions of this charismatic street in Hong Kong.
