Western Market - is right at the end of the tram stop on Hong Kong island and sells silks, dress fabric, arts and crafts.
You can't miss the building, its a red-brick Edwardian-style historical landmark. It first opened in 1906 and has been operating ever since.
Western - Sheung Wan
Western - amongst other things, is where the Macau ferries leave from. There are also lots of small stores and restaurants around the area.
Life around this area is more traditional Chinese especially around Wing Lok Street . There are local herb shops, tea shops and wholesale stores. The buildings are also older than in Central
Old Supreme Court
What is today determined as the Legislative Council Building was once the old Supreme Court. The building was designed by a British Architect (Sir Aston Webb) and built on reclaimed land in 1912. In 1985 it was converted to accommodate the Legislative Council. Right in the middle of Hong Kong Islands Central District, it really is a lovely old styled building in comparison to the modern soaring skyscrapers that surround it.
Central is just a ferry ride from Kowloon side over to Hong Kong Island or a short MTR train ride to Central Station. Many designer stores are found here as well as local shops and small lanes filled with stalls.
Planet Hollywood also has a branch here. Nightlife is good at Lang Kwai Fong as well.
The Peak on Hong Kong Island is probably something you should do twice. Once by day and the other by night. You will see some of the most amazing views of Hong Kong and by night, a transformation into a fairy land.

Go to top of Victoria Peak at Hong Kong Island. You can see superb skyline of Hong Kong and Kowloon Island as well as Victoria Harbour on top of the hill. Also, there is a shopping centre and some restaurants on top of the hill near the tram station.
