Cheng Po Hung, UMAG honorary advisor and renowned Hong Kong historian will guide us through the districts of upper Sheung Wan and Sai Ying Pun. This is a continuation of Cheng's previous walk last year where we explored Causeway Bay, Tin Hau and North Point. On this walk we will meander through one of the oldest parts of Hong Kong passing Cochrane Street, Lyndhurst Terrace, Hollywood Road, Aberdeen Street, Staunton Street, heading West towards Bridges Street, Tai Ping Shan Street and finally Queen’s Road West. He will share interesting tales about old landmarks including the one of the earliest cinemas in Hong Kong, Central Market, the Central School, the residential area where Chinese people lived, location of the plague in the late 1900s, Tung Wah hospital, Possession Street. & Possession Point, the Government Civic hospital as well as the historic parts of Sai Ying Pun.
