Place of Assembly: Western Market; Place of Dismissal: Man Mo Temple (7 mins walk from Sheung Wan MTR Station)

After Hong Kong was confirmed a colony of Britain, Sheung Wan was a place where the locals and the British, yet clearly divided, lived together. From the former Western Market to Man Mo Temple, we can see numerous colonial and local constructions, like The Old Pathological Institute and Tung Wah Hospital. These spots cover plenty of the Hong Kong stories that are important in our history. 

Highlights:
The historic buildings and antiques in Central and Western District
The folk religions and the function of temples
The multi-cultural living environment

Route: 
Western Market → Hollywood Road Park → Tung Wah Hospital → Kwong Fook I Tsz → Tai Ping Shan Street → Blake Garden → Old Pathological Institute → YMCA → Man Mo Temple  

N.B. The itinerary is approximately the same as above. The whole journey takes about 2 hours. The tour guide can adjust the relevant itinerary/order of scenic spots according to the weather and actual needs of the day.
