Fodor's Hong Kong
Western Market Review
This redbrick Edwardian-style building in the Sheung Wan district is a declared monument and the oldest existing market building in Hong Kong; when built in 1906 it was used as a produce market. These days, its classical facades are filled with kitschy commerce, with a few unmemorable shops selling crafts, toys, jewelry, and collectibles on the ground floor. Skip these and head up the escalator, where you'll find a remarkable selection of fabric: satins, silks, sequins are all here and worth a look. A more surreal experience is lunch, dinner, or high tea in the Grand Stage Ballroom Restaurant on the top floor. After a great Chinese meal you can while away the afternoon with the old-timers trotting around the room to a live band belting out the cha-cha and tango. The restaurant is also a popular spot for weddings and receptions. Visit in the evening and you're likely to snap up cashmere and chiffon while a violin sings overhead.
