  • 這原是個舊街市,多年前關閉後被活化成一個小型商場,地下是售買本地特色精品商店及餐廳,二樓更是以布匹店為主題,但這裡始終不成氣候,商店貨品及食肆欠吸引力,本地人也沒有興趣來,這次中午路過到訪,但見遊人稀疏,相信多數的人只是取道路過而已!  more »
  • The brick building was built during the United Kingdom Royal post of the stained-glass Windows and then remain in. At not only the history of about 100 years, but I still for Hong Kong S.A.R. one of the priceless historical heritage.

  • Historical building which has been renovated and now is home to some restaurants and a whole host of souvenir shops selling interesting handy crafts. The restaurant on the top floor is delicious as well as honeymoon desserts on the ground floor. There is a souvenir shop that specialises in bus memorabilia if you are into buses.
  • Great historic building, the combination of history and modern Hong Kong
  • One of the very few remaining architecture from the colonial era in Hong Kong. The looks of it from outside is alright. Nothing spectacular really. This place may have its historic significance, but it is a rather boring place in my opinion. Nothing interesting.
  • Nothing to see inside, some boring shops selling useless stuff. Looks nice on the outside but cramped between other buildings so hard to take a photo.
  • Historically-significant facade aside, this building has virtually nothing going for it internally, served by mostly tacky souvenir shops. The Tokyo Cheese Factory branch situated here is the only thing worth a visit.
