FDC from Hong Kong: Characteristic Streets

Pottinger Street($1.40)-The street was originally built from Queen's Road Central up to Hollywood Road. Because of its steep slope, the street was praved entirely with stone slabs, forming steps in an undulating pattern to make it easy for people to go up and down and to drain away stormwater.

Nathan Road($1.40)-It runs through the hustling and bustling Yau Tsim Mong Distric, lit up like a kaleidoscope by neon signs of shops, hotels, shopping arcades and restaurants along the way.

Hollywood Road($2.40)-This street is lined with antique shops that lend an air of nostalgic elegance.

Temple Street($2.40)-For a real taste of Hong Kong culture, there is no better place that Temple Street, the street named after Tin Hau temple in Yau Ma Tei. Dubbed "People's Night Market" for its all-time bargains, Temple Street comes alive when the city lights up at dusk.

Des Voeux Road West($3)- Des Voeux Road West is a traditional marketplace for ginseng products and herbs as well as dried seafood.

Stanley Market($3)- Stanley Market Road and Stanley Main Street, Stanley Market is a popular tourist attraction in Southern District on Hong Kong Island.

Many thanks to Hiu Fan for this nice FDC!
