Home > Sightseeing > Districts > Hong Kong Island > SOHO


Every city needs to have a "SOHO" district named after the entertainment area in London, but following the lead of New York the Soho in Hong Kong is a made up acronym standing for South Of Hollywood Road.  Hollywood Road is one of the main "antique furniture" shopping areas in Hong Kong.

Clustered around Stauton Street and Elgin Street the area contains numerous restaurants and bars and forms a similar function as the Lan Kwai Fong area which is just a few streets to the east of it.

A short walk through the area will turn up many interesting sights and will take you past parts of the Sun Yat-sen Historical Trail as well as the Central-Mid-levels escalators.  But the main reason to go there would be to find something to eat or drink in the evening!   If you spend some time in an afternoon looking at the antique shops on Hollywood road then it would be a great way to finish off by walking up hill to have your dinner

Nearby is Old Baily Street containing the interesting Victoria Prison which was HK's first prison and continued to be used until 2005.  Unfortunately it is not open to the public though it is a officially a Declared Monument.
