Walking Tour: Pottinger Street

This week we are going to explore the iconic cobblestone steps of Pottinger Street. This is the best time of year to walk down Pottinger Street. You can find costumes for sale here year-round, but in the months leading up to Halloween it is particularly colorful.


Start out at the bottom of the steps on Queen's Road Central. This one's easy because you just go straight up.


Shops selling all sorts of things line the steps.


You can find useful things, like ribbons, watch bands and hair ties.


You can also find not-so-useful things, like soda cans that dance around in circles.


Keep climbing the steps. This is where the real fun begins.


These purses made out of jeans always make me pause. I've never seen anyone carrying one.


Cross Stanley Street to get to the next group of steps (you could also turn left here for a detour to Holly Brown, one of my favorite coffee shops).


This is where the costumes begin.


Just follow the feet.


What do you want to be for Halloween?


Or you could just wear a wig out in Wan Chai (this is particularly common during the Rugby Sevens but I guess you could get away with it anytime).


I love Pottinger Street for the colors.


There are all sorts of fun things you could buy.


You could even dress up as Uncle Sam.


This is a fun, busy street.


Take note of The Chippy on your right if you're missing fish-n-chips.


Some of the stalls sell fun, colorful things that are not costume-related.


Here are some more wigs.


You're reaching the end of the colorful part of the street.


Take one last look above the crowd...


...and then cross Lyndhurst Terrace.


There are always paintings on display here, for one last burst of color.


Keep climbing the steps to the quieter section of Pottinger Street.


There are a few quiet stalls left.


And some signs of a simpler sort of business.


Climb past the international restaurants lining the street.



And you'll find yourself at a restaurant at the junction with Hollywood Road.


Thanks for coming along on this colorful Hong Kong walking tour. Check out the tab at the top of the page for more tours, or come back next week!
