One of the oldest structures in the region, and the oldest surviving marketplace in the city, Western Market attracts tourists with its status as a protected historical landmark and authentic local marketplace. Among the stores here are a Bavarian-style bakery, a place where you can sample Chinese desserts, several cafes, and souvenir shops stocking traditional Chinese and Hong Kong goods. There is also a bar and restaurant on the top floor, where a sizable function room plays host to dance nights. With our custom trip planner, Hong Kong attractions like Western Market can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Once upstairs in the market, the variety and number of rolls of fabric ( many packed up to the roof line ) become evident. Be clear about what you're looking for so that the individual vendors don't t...  more »

  • Nice for a quick stop. There's not much to do in here. The top floors are reserved for big party celebrations while the bottom two are for shops. It's very small, and the stores mainly sell fabrics.
  • Western Market opens at 10AM. I proceeded with the Walking Tour around Sheung Wan starting off with the nearby Cafes to grab a breakfast. Inside the 1600 building, we see textile and fabric stalls reflective of Hong Kong's culture and history.
  • Lots of silk fabric shops there. Western Market originally consisted of two separate blocks: the South Block on Queen’s Road Central was erected in 1858 and demolished in 1980; smaller than the South Block, the North Block was built in 1906 in the Edwardian style that is highlighted by the ‘bandaged’ brickwork of the four corner towers
  • Beautiful historical building! Too bad it has been under renovation for so long.. The first floor with all the fabric stall is worth being visited!
  • Poorly concept and not do attractive. Entrance facing Des Voeux Road is spoiled by MTR's ventilatory.

Where to stay in Hong Kong

Head to Tsim Sha Tsui for the main tourist section of Hong Kong, where it's easy to find reasonably priced accommodations to suit your particular requirements, with more expensive hotels closer to the water and side streets offering budget hostels. You can also consider Hong Kong Island, which offers easy links to the mainland via its ferry and train lines. Chain hotels sit in the northern section of the island, where luxury and budget options remain available.
