The Hidden Star

23 08 2015

Star Street is one of Hong Kong’s most exclusive enclaves, a monied mini-district of little boutiques and expat restaurants. It terminates in a small, dead end grid of streets bounded by the quaintly named Moon and Sun streets. But what I hadn’t realised until this weekend, is that after a flight of stairs on St Francis Street, it continues along another sleepy pedestrian-only terrace called Sau Wa Fong. Here, you can find the graphic arts/print store Odd One Out which sells artwork like the piece above, and a couple of interesting homewares store. These are located along a street of charming lowrise apartments with abundant potplants and a Rio de Janeiro-like sheer jungly cliff at one end. Quite a discovery!
