Traditional Temples, Cafes, Street Art & Local Colour
Mar 2021
If you have several days in Hong Kong and want to explore a few of the streets in and around central Hong Kong, then Tai Ping Shan St is one place where you can get a lot of local colour in a short time. It’s a little off the main tourist trail but if you go just beyond Central’s skyscrapers and luxury shopping malls, you’ll find a very different side of Hong Kong. Historically, Tai Ping Shan was a seedy and squalid area, with open drains and sewers, brothels and overcrowded tenements where animals lived alongside people. Not surprisingly it was ground zero for ongoing outbreaks of the Bubonic Plague. These days, it’s still gritty but the street and surrounding area is an eclectic mix of hipster cafes, wine bars and pop-up retailers and galleries sitting alongside old temples, joss sticks and street art. In the one street, you can see 3 traditional temples, all of which are free to enter. The Kwong Fook Tsz is the largest and stands high above the street. Don’t be put off by the imposing red wall. You can venture inside and from upstairs, you can see down over the length of the street. Several local and international artists have made their mark on the street walls. Many of the works were commissioned for the annual HKWALLS event. At one end, local artist Zlism has painted a quirky, fun scene running along a flight of stairs. Further along, in the lane behind Sai St, a long, blue dragon snakes along one wall and a curious, creature explodes on the opposite wall. A good starting point is to visit the historic Man Mo temple and Cat St market first, then wander up to Tai Ping Shan St.

Street with an interesting history to tell in Sheung Wan
Mei 2021
Tai Ping Shan is a historic street in Sheung Wan. It was an area that became a Chinese settlement in the 19th century and was sadly an area that suffered dearly during the Bubonic Plaque outbreak of 1894.

There are several old temples situated along the street that you can visit today. However, for the most part, the street and area has a more modern and hip feel to it, being the location of trendy restaurants, coffee shops, street art and art galleries.

Tai Ping Shan is included in the Central and Western Heritage Trail (Sheung Wan segment) self walking tour and a location that can be clubbed with nearby historic market streets such as Hollywood Road and Ladder Street as well as nearby attractions like the Man Mo Temple and the HK Museum of Medical Sciences where you can learn more about the late 19th century bubonic plaque and its devastated effects of those living on Tai Ping Shan Street in the past.
