Went to Hong Kong with friends and were curious about several heritage sites. It was a disappointment; the whole site has been turned into a high end shopping mall. It looks more like a modern mall made to look like a heritage site. There is a lot of structural add on’s to the site that distracts you from any feeling that there was any historical significance to this site. If you want to see Hong Kong heritage and historical sites, better follow the Wanchai Heritage trail instead, it was a lot more interesting.

This new luxury shopping center/hotel recently opened in the TST area not far from the Peninsula and Victoria Harbor. It has an absolutely beautiful outdoor layout that is difficult to not enjoy. If you are in Hong Kong during Christmas time, they put up a fantastic Xmas tree (Dec 2010), outdoors with with tons of lights, ornaments and outdoor figurines that really put us in the Christmas spirit and mood. Luckily, we are not rich enough to buy anything here as the mood was set to do so.

This place is really for big spenders but can be enjoyed by strolling around the grounds by all. Its not a must do/see in Hong Kong but might be worth your time, particularly around the holidays when they put up very good displays. Its good for 30-60 minutes for strolling.

There are some restaurants there was well but we've yet to try one.

My friend and I could only be described as "lost" when we walked around the shops of Heritage 1881. This is not the place to buy something under US$1,000! The place is lined with jewelry and watch stores. Look up and see what appears to be a vey old-world looking hotel with an extremely lovely facade. If you intend to shop at a classy location, this is a good place to do it in Kowloon.
