Most of China Alley is abandoned. There is the Taoist Temple, a tea shop, and some restaurants. Most of the area is dilapidated. The tea shop has a nice selection of teas and tea equipment. 20% of proceeds go to restoring the area. They also...More

Used to be a significant place to visit. Countless economic slumps rendered this area near empty. Historic significance is most seen only in the fine restaurants still around. Hong Kong Chop Suey is my faforite.

If there is an event going on then this is 10 stars. It is open and has lots of balconies so even in the hottest weather you can enjoy the Lion Dance or other events. The stores really go all out during special events, which...More

This is a fun place to visit in October during the Moon Festival. Other than that, it's about a 10 minute stop-there is an interesting museum, but you can go through it quickly. LT Sue has a cute tea shop and restaurant - with literally...More
