Causeway Bay is the epitome of urban reincarnation. No other area in Hong Kong has so successfully and radically reinvented itself as this prime shopping district. Long known as ‘East Point’ this once was Hong Kong’s version of the docklands with factories, depots and warehouses. In the 1920s the bay transformed into a popular entertainment district packed with restaurants, theatres and the Lee Garden amusement park high up on East Point Hill. The hill was flattened after the war, but its joyful spirit never left. Even though many of the old movie theatres, night markets and Japanese department stores have long been replaced by commercial malls and hotels, Causeway Bay will always be Hong Kong’s heart for fun and leisure.
