    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.

    Old Supreme Court

    by keeweechic Written Aug 31, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.
