North Point is a district on Hong Kong Island’s eastern side, projecting out towards Kowloon Bay across the river. It’s situated between Causeway Bay and Quarry Bay.
North Point is a traditional neighborhood with family-run eateries and bustling wet markets surviving side by side with a smattering of chain stores and modern gyms. Although the area has little in the way of typical tourist attractions, many visitors are drawn to North Point for its affordable shopping, old-style restaurants, and old-world atmosphere.
The neighborhood is easily accessible too, with an MRT station and the tram (or ‘Ding Ding’) both making it easy for visitors to reach. Those who get a good spot on the double-decker tram (at the front of the top deck) will see local life, such as the traditional markets, unfold before their eyes on the approach to North Point.
To reach North Point by metro, take the Island Line or Tseung Kwan O line on the MRT. Alternatively, opt for the scenic route by taking the tram, which stops at various places throughout the neighborhood.
