Last time, we chose Central & Sheung Wan. We can think about some places in Kowloon or N.T., even Islands this time.

Last sketchcrawl took place in the Hong Kong island side. As H2O suggested, I agree we should go to the Kowloon side this time.

I think 油麻地果欄 and 上海街 are cool.

What do you all think??

A day in Old Hong Kong

We can start our day at 油麻地果欄, then walk our way to 上海街. Meet up at 美都餐室 at Temple Street to chat, exchange sketches and have some refreshment when we are done. =D

Here are some pictures I found on the web:

Fruit market:

Of course I agree with this :twisted:


It seems many people very busy & never come back to this forum again :roll:

the fruit market's opened really early in the morning, when all of us are still in bed!! dun think there will be a lot of action when we get there say at 10am. still plenty of stuff to sketch though.

btw i drove by fruit market and shanghai street today to check out the route. funny one side of shanghai street's full of "yellow signs" hehehhe.

The guys are very busy in the morning, especially during 04:00-07:00. There will be no people after 14:00.

Around the 油麻地果欄, there have many good places also.

I think the area between Waterloo Road & Public Square Street 眾坊街 is fine.


I list some good places from North to South:

Near Waterloo Road is 油麻地果欄

Image


"Red House" around Man Ming Lane

Image


Yau Ma Tei Police Station at Public Square St. 眾坊街 & Canton Road

Image


Tin Hau Temple at Public Square St. 眾坊街 & Shanghai St. 上海街

My childhood had lived in YauTsimMong ^^
