Oh Hong Kong.. You truly took a piece of my heart.
On a short trip to Hong Kong we had the pleasure of staying in the SoHo district of the island.
Exploring SoHo Hong Kong has to have been one of the funnest things we’ve done on our three day stay in the city. Every turn took us somewhere new and different. Clearly my opinion is going to be a little biased because we stayed in an apartment here but with such a short stay I count myself lucky to have gotten to stay on Hong Kong Island in this vibrant area.
SoHo is filled with small cafes, boutique shops, some of the most amazing furniture and home stores I have ever been to, market stall vendors, quirky graffiti and plenty of culture.
I have to say I couldn’t have found a better area to do my Christmas shopping.
Oddly one of my favourite things about this district is the Mark & Spencer’s we found on one of the streets. And it wasn’t the clothing store either.. It was the grocery store. Yes I count this as a favourite.. But ever since London I have been obsessed with Mark & Spencer because not only do they have great, amazing, healthy food but it’s fairly cheap! Pre made salads, yogurt, snacks, everything you could want to eat they have!
Another one of my other favourite things about SoHo was the variety of shops. If you want to shop and spend all your money then this is the place to go. Goods Of Desire has to be one of the coolest shops I found with weird clothing, home made prints, kitchen and home decor, pillows, bedding. Everything was unique and well made. If I lived in Hong Kong I would fill my house with everything I found in this store.
And speaking of finding things to put in your home there is a place called Home Essentials right by Tai Cheong Bakery (read more about that amazing bakery HERE) and they have the most brilliant home supplies. I asked the manager about shipping things to Canada but sadly they could not.. which makes me want to just pack up my stuff and move to Hong Kong so I can buy everything in that store. Not to mention the beyond amazing customer service we gotten. It was beyond professional and personal and welcoming. If I was a store owner I would aspire to have the customer service that was given here.
And then there’s the food.
Irish Pubs, Italian, Japanese, and American restaurants, Dim Sum, coffee, bakeries, and street vendors are just to name a few things you will find in this area.
SoHo, Hong Kong, is a vibrant, buzzing area and I recommend anyone visiting this city to take the train here and get lost in the streets. It’s a perfect area that is close to everything from Aberdeen to the International Commerce Centre across the harbour. Victoria Peak’s a train ride away and you can walk to the harbour and view the skyline.
