“Great markets, shops and restaurants” — shelliu, Chicago, Illinois
Western District is full of small streets with a lot of character. The steps going up or down one street can have a totally different vibe. From antique row and some great small restaurants on Hollywood, to the markets where you can find fresh flowers, food, etc are great. It definitely has less of a commercialized feeling. It is also a great place to live because it is close to Central (for work), close to great restaurants (and more are popping up in the area every month), much more quiet and more of a neighborhood feel with parks.
The Central and Western District located on northern part of Hong Kong Island having the most educated residents with the second highest income in Hong Kong.
Central is the central business district and the core urban area of Hong Kong. Western District covers Shek Tong Tsui, Kennedy Town and Sai Ying Pun, and was part of the City of Victoria, the earliest urban settlement in colonial Hong Kong.
