AN INSIDER’S GUIDE TO LIFE IN THEIR ’HOOD
Tucked away to the southeast of Causeway Bay is the neighbourhood of Tai Hang. The area was originally a slum – its name translates as “big water channel” – but it was redeveloped in the 1990s and in more recent times has developed a reputation as a haven for hipsters, with gentrification bringing in bars and restaurants. Locals will tell you that Tai Hang still retains a feel of old Hong Kong, and it’s the location for the annual Tai Hang Fire Dragon Dance during the Mid-Autumn Festival, which falls this year between 23 and 25 September. Here, Aussie expat David shares some insights into life in this charming corner of the city.
