In this Hong Kong trip, we finally visited North Point ! Of course, to eat !! But that’s for another blog post.
A visit to Chun Yeung Street 春秧街
To get there, we decided to take the tram ride through the Chun Yeung Street 北角 春秧街. Which is the site of a wet market. And also a very popular TVB variety show, 街市游乐团.
What is so special about Chun Yeung Street 春秧街
From HK tourism web site:
Of all the wet markets in the city, none offer as grand an entrance as the Chun Yeung Market. Hop on an eastbound tram heading towards the North Point tram terminus and, without warning, you’ll swing off the broad King’s Road onto a narrow street which is lined on either side with buzzy stalls selling fresh fruits, vegetables, meat and seafood. Experience the sights and sounds of old-school market business in full swing.
I super agree ! 🙂
How to get to Chun Yeung Street 春秧街 by Ding Ding Tram
When you take the tram (ding ding), you should look out for the one that goes to North Point. You can see that on the signboard on the tram. It will say “North Point”.
Any other tram will NOT bring you into the Chun Yeung Street 春秧街
Here’s an map from Hong Kong Tramways web site.
What happen when you are on the Ding Ding to Chun Yeung Street 春秧街
As you ride along the tram ride through Hong Kong island, suddenly this particular tram will turn from King’s Road (the main road) into the Chun Yeung Street.
Right into the wet market at Chun Yeung Street 春秧街
And people shopping for goods and fresh produces.
A video of the tram ride through Chun Yeung Street 春秧街
I took a video of the trip through the Chun Yeung Street in Hong Kong. Look at how cool that BMW is, blocking the tram and just go about unloading the goods in his own time 🙂
Enjoy the video 🙂
And this is the North Point Tram Terminal where you must drop off. From there it is a short walk to many great food places at North Point such as Lee Keung Kee and the fantastic Hyatt Centric Victoria Harbour Hong Kong.
