Whampoa is a bustling residential neighbourhood in Hung Hom. No longer under the radar, thanks to the MTR station opening and the ferry service to Central resuming––locals and tourists alike are flocking to this off-the-beaten-path destination.
The neighbourhood is the largest private housing estate in the district and was built on the site of the former Whampoa Dockyards. The estate's urban design is inspired by the Garden city movement, a method of urban planning where communities are surrounded by "greenbelts" which combines residences, industry, and agriculture.
Conveniently located near downtown Hong Kong, Whampoa is home to one of the most unique shopping malls out there and offers a variety of dining options with incredible sea views. To discover more of this thriving neighbourhood, we're breaking down the best things to eat, drink, and do in the area.
