Upper Lascar Row (Cat Street) Tours and Activities

Upper Lascar Row (Cat Street)
Upper Lascar Row, also known as Cat Street, is a combination bazaar and flea market. Stretching for about 550 feet (168 meters), it’s jam-packed with more than 30 shops and stalls selling antiques, vintage items, secondhand goods, curios, Mao memorabilia, and souvenirs, as well as jade, silk, porcelain, and other products.
 
The Basics
The best way to experience Upper Lascar Row is on foot. To score a good bargain or a unique vintage item, make sure you allot enough time to dig through the large variety of goods. Most Sheung Wan walking tours stop here and at other nearby attractions, such as Hollywood Road, Man Mo Temple, and Bonham Strand. For the best value, combine a Sheung Wan walking tour with a Hong Kong Island guided tour.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Wear comfortable walking shoes if you plan to explore Upper Lascar Row and the surrounding areas.
  • Don’t forget your camera, but always ask before taking photos.
  • Buyer beware, as not all goods sold here will be genuine and some items are modern reproductions rather than actual antiques.
  • Try your hand at haggling for better prices.
  • Bring cash as not all vendors accept credit cards.
 
How to Get There
Upper Lascar Row is located in Sheung Wan, 1 block north of Hollywood Road. Take the MTR to Sheung Wan (Exit A2), walk along Hillier Street to Queen’s Road Central, then climb up the stairs until Upper Lascar Row. Those who would rather not walk up the stairs can take the Central-Mid Level Escalators to Hollywood Road, then walk down to Upper Lascar Row.
 
When to Get There
Upper Lascar Row can be visited year-round. Most shops will be open from 11am to 6pm, but are closed Sunday and public holidays. Many visitors combine a stop here with sightseeing and shopping along nearby Hollywood Road.
 
Origin of Upper Lascar Row and Cat Street
The term “lascar” refers to Indian sailors, many of whom lived on and around this street during colonial times. In the past, the street also had a reputation as a place where a lot of stolen goods were resold. In Cantonese, thieves are referred to colloquially as rats, and those who purchase the goods from them as cats; this is why the street is also referred to as Cat Street.
Address: Sheung Wan, Sheun Wang, Hong Kong, China
