Writers and photographers from the SCMP's 48 Hours team have been out and about recently in some of Hong Kong's most interesting neighbourhoods. Find out what to see and where to eat and drink, day and night.

Prince Edward

Prince Edward is … a place that knits together all the threads of Hong Kong life

Lamma Island

Step off the ferry ... and you enter a kind of decompression chamber

Kennedy Town

The particular charm of Kennedy Town endures, with its ... end-of-the-line feel

Star Street precinct, Wan Chai

Star, Sun, Moon and St Francis streets have become an island of tranquility

Aberdeen and Ap Lei Chau

It's a bit grungy, kind of like how the Meatpacking District was [in New York]

Sai Kung Town

Sai Kung has become a shopping destination. But ... the selection remains eclectic and down to earth

Tai Ping Shan

For now, it seems to have struck a balance between traditional and trendy and is as friendly as ever. 

And for night owls ...

Mong Kok

... One of the last of a dying breed of true Hong Kong dives

Tsim Sha Tsui

The drinks are strong, the music good, and the people-watching second to none.

Sai Ying Pun

A slew of new bars and restaurants have opened in the neighbourhood's narrow, hilly streets
