“After breakfast you can check out Wanchai market. It is closest market. If you follow Cross Street directly across from Kam Fung, you should be able to see vendors set out selling random merchandise. Different parts of the street sell different things (herbs, toys, dried goods, meats, vegetables and noodles). Eventually you will reach the indoor section of Wanchai market. The government created the indoor market to improve on the sanitation of the "wet market." An interesting history is that our development used to be situated on wedding card street apart of the Wanchai market area. Hence, in the Chinese name of our development uses the character of "double happiness" associated with marriag”
