Sheung Wan still has an old feel about it and when you look at old black and white photos they aren't too different to what you can see now.
The old 'ladder' streets (steep inclined streets with steps) are imbued with old flavour but for many, the old stalls have been cleared way. Nonetheless, much still remains and this area just to the west of Central, the flavour changes dramatically from high end shopping to traditional shops and businesses.
Hollywood Road (named after the holly bushes that thrived here) has antiques and eateries on one end and coffin and funeral shops at the other. The wholesale market shops fill the air with the fragrance of their dried seafoods - sea cucumbers, shrimps, and scallops. Other less offensive items can be seen but what amazes the visitor about Hong Kong is the assault on you experience on your senses.
