  • I don't know why this is a western market... Some shops but nothing special. You see it all in 5 minutes...  more »
  • A great place to buy fabric and a gorgeous building. A must see of HK sightseeing easy to get to by public transport. There is a restaurant at the top serving local cuisine.  more »

  • 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
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Nice place to visit @ Sheung Wan area since its one of the historical building there.
