"Chungking Express" takes you to another world

Updated: Nov 3, 2018


Many people have come to visit Hong Kong after watching this movie released in 1994 by director Wong Kar Wai. "Chungking Express" depicts "Chungking Mansion" as a mysterious and romantic place, which many people want to visit this place in Tsim Sha Tsui.


Unlike the what it is like in the movie, this 60 year-old building is actually more a place with motels, guest houses, shops, home of people from different parts of the world.



And the shopping mall is like an Indian Town, which many Indian residents run grocery stores and restaurants there. Walking around the area would make you feel like you are in India.

This place may be very different from what you expect from the movie, but actually it is a very unique experience in Hong Kong.
