Vintage plate 2018

Western Market is a beautiful Edwardian building, restored in 1991, home to about Chinese fabrics and Crafts shops. In the vicinity (Bonham Strand East and West, Sutherland Street, Wing Lok Street…), the streets carve out an impressive wholesale market of all kinds of medicinal plants and terrestrial or salted marine or sea-to-sea (to each evil). These stores feed the city's herboristeries and represent the mainstay of Chinese medicine. A walk not to be missed. There is nothing to be impressed with the quantities exposed and the appearance of certain products that are difficult to identify (dried snakes, giant mussels, deer horns), all nicely and perfectly presented.

Visited in september 2016
Très beau bâtiment sur deux étages avec de petits commerce et restaurant.
Notice filed on 09/30/2016 
Le bâtiment en lui-même est très joli, que ce soit de l'extérieur ou de l'intérieur. Par contre une fois dedans, l’intérêt des boutiques est plus limité, à moins de vouloir rapporter un tissus local par exemple.
Les ferry pour Macao partent d'en face de ce batiment, il peut donc être vu dans la foulée, sa visite ne durant pas trés longtemps.
