SEE THINGS

Do Soon: Your Taikoo Shing To-Eat List

Around EAST, you'll find SOHO East's diverse cuisines and Tong Chong Street's cafés and seasonal fairs. For the classics, visit New Phoenix Bakery for egg tarts, Kam Kee café for pineapple buns and coconut candy wraps, and Busy Bee for the perfect HK-style French toast.

Meet The Monster: Yick Cheong Building

Aptly nicknamed, Monster Building refers to an imposing group of five connected buildings collectively called Yick Cheong Building. Whether you see it from the outside on King's Road or surrounded by it on the inside, the walls of stacked windows is emblematic of Hong Kong's tight, urban living.

Your First Steps Into Hong Kong's Biodiversity

For nearby access to nature, the entrance to Mount Parker Road Green Trail is just on King's Road and is a great three-hour morning or daytime hike.
