A road filled with history, Queen’s Road, Hong Kong, was the first road ever built by the British back in 1843. Interestingly, it covers a vast point to point area marking the original shoreline before the land reclamation projects that permanently extended into Victoria Harbou–another remarkable place in Hong Kong.
It was primarily named as Main Street, then was renamed after the British Empire’s Queen Victoria; These all happened when Hong Kong was founded as a British Crown Colony back in 1842. Making Queen’s road the center of the very island’s significant activities.
Today, Queen’s Road has been divided into four sections, Queen’s Road West which starts approximately at Possession Street in Sheung Wan to the east, transecting Sai Ying Pun, HK University and Shek Tung Tsui until intersecting with Des Voeux Road in Kennedy Town to the west. You’ll see a more local, casual way of life along Queen’s Road West than Queen’s Road Central where the heavier concentration of skyscrapers begins and much more international commerce and activity influence begins to show.
