重慶大廈 Chungking Mansions

Chungking Mansions was a place where the indecency and the energy of Hong Kong were condensed.
It is a multi-tenant building in the best area in Kowloon.
However, it has a strange atmosphere even at the entrance and it was a mysterious space where usual Hong Kong people rarely approaches either.
You can feel the questionable atmosphere from the movie "Chungking Express".
Actually, it was a nest of crime and it had uneasiness of the public security for a long time before.
The enhanced security continues after the 2000's, for example, the security guard post was placed at A post on the third floor.

However, a part of such Chungking Mansions was redecorated recently, and it was reborn as a new tourist spot "CKE Shopping Mall".
I went there out of curiosity.

There was a eerie mannequin.
Why did she need a mask?

Nail salons stand out in the building.
A lot of young girls enjoy the relaxation time.

There seem to be still a lot of vacant stores, too.

Long long underpass

Now, there is long underpass in Tsim Sha Tsui.

It is long for such a sign to mention.

There is also a moving walkway.

It made us eases to walk in HOT Hong kong summer.

1881 Heritage @ Tsim Sha Tsui

1881 Heritage is a big shopping center at Tsim Sha Tsui.
The area had continued the construction for long time.
Originally, it was the Former Marine Police Headquarters, and the building was a colonial style built in 1881.
After the reconstruction, the colonial style has remained all over the place.

A cute emblem!

There are a lot of wonderful spots.

Our hero is the sailor man.
