To individual travelers, 4 things to do on Hong Kong Island's Central & Western District 致自由行旅客,你可以在港島中西區做的四件事

Apart from visiting Man Mo Temple, you have four other things to do on Hong Kong Island's Central & Western District to learn the history, enjoy shopping and local delicacies.

(1)Learn Hong Kong's public health history
There is the Taipingshan Medical Heritage Trail, which shows you the history of 1894 bubonic plague and Hong Kong public health. The Hong Kong Museum of Medical Sciences and the Blake Garden are the focal points of the trail. 

(2)Learn Dr. Sun Yat-sen's life

The Father of Republic of China, Dr. Sun Yat-sen studied medicine and got the enlightenment in Hong Kong. He then organized the revolution in the colony. You can learn his life by visiting the Dr Sun Yat-sen Museum, Sun Yat-sen Memorial Park and Dr Sun Yat-sen Historical Trail.

(3)Buy and eat locally

Sun Yat-sen once studied in the Government Central School. The site later became the first Police Married Quarter in Asia. Today you can go shopping at the 'PMQ' to support Hong Kong's talented designers. You can then go dining at different Taipaidong (outdoor food stalls) to taste the local delicacies.

(4)Visit different markets

Apart from PMQ and malls, you can visit different markets. You can go to the 'Cat Street Market' (Upper Lascar Row) for the curios. You can go to the Lei Yuen Street East and West for the souvenirs. You can still go to the Graham Street Wet Market to see locals' dining habits. But you must be quick. Hong Kong's oldest wet market may disappear soon due to the urban renewal project.

除了參觀文武廟,你還可以在港島中西區做四件事,認識歷史文化,吃喝玩樂。

(1)認識香港公共衛生史
中西區有一條太平山醫學史蹟徑,介紹1894年鼠疫和香港公共衛生歷史,香港醫學博物館和卜公花園是史蹟徑的焦點所在。

(2)認識孫中山先生的生平

國父孫中山在香港修讀醫科,並得到西方知識的啟發,遂於香港組織革命活動,力圖推翻君主專制。到孫中山紀念館、孫中山史蹟徑和中山紀念公園,就可以認識孫氏生平。

(3)買本地產品、吃本地美食

孫中山曾經就讀的中央書院,地址後來變成已婚警察宿舍,政府最後活化了建築物,使之成為支持本地設計師的PMQ,你可以去購物,又可以到附近的大牌檔,吃道地美食。

(4)遊覽市集

除了PMQ,中西區有不同的市集,想買珍奇玩意,可到摩囉街;想買紀念品或衣物,可到利源東西街;想認識香港飲食文化,可到嘉咸街街市。因為市區重建,嘉咸街街市或許很快消失,想去,就要快了!
