Queen's Road, one of the main streets on Hong Kong Island, is a historic road first built in Hong Kong by the British. The intricately shaped road runs from Sai Wan in the west to Happy Valley in the east, much of it marking the former coastline, and along the street you can see the varied face of Hong Kong today, from the alleyways of those days to the skyscrapers of the metropolis.
Sheung Wan, which borders the north shore of Hong Kong Island, has a long history of development since it was first colonized by the British in 1842. It has both an evolving business district and an unchanged area lined with old-fashioned stores. The city is full of unique spots such as Hollywood Road and Cat Street, where antique stores line the streets, and Tai Ping Shan Street, where galleries and cafes are concentrated in the traditional district.
