Built in 1961, the Chungking Mansions may be one of Hong Kong’s most unique structures, housing numerous independent hotels, retail outlets and multicultural restaurants. Comprising five blocks and 17 storeys, this prominent building features three shopping arcades selling goods from many Asian and African countries, including sari stores and handmade clothing shops.
You can also find outlets selling traditional snacks, electronic goods, brand-name clothes and unique trinkets. Are you looking for global cuisine? You’ll love the range of restaurants here selling classic Indian curries, Nepalese food, African delicacies and Asian cuisine. Head to Café de Coral for Hong Kong-style fast food or Sher-I-Punjab Club & Mess for classic Indian fare.
A visit to the Chungking Mansions can easily be combined with a stroll through the Signal Hill Garden park or the waterfront Salisbury Garden. The Chungking Mansions is also within walking distance from the Hong Kong Space Museum and Hong Kong Museum of Art.
The Chungking Mansions is best reached by catching the Tsuen Wan Line to Tsim Sha Tsui Station and walking about two minutes. You can also walk there in about six minutes from East Tsim Sha Tsui Station, which is serviced by the West Rail Line.
