Trip to Hong Kong Must Visit: Cruise Liner Mall – A mall that looks like a ship

Another place of interest that you must pay a visit to when you are in Hong Kong is Cruise Liner Mall. Situated in Hung Hom, Kowloon, it is a part of a bigger mall called The Whampoa. It is a lesser known and underrated gem compared to the more famous shopping malls like Causeway Bay, Harbour City and the rest in Central.

Sticking like a sore thumb in the middle of a residential area, this 360-feet-long unique structure houses a Japanese grocery market, AEON, restaurants, theatres, and even a small theme park. This mall carries a meaningful history, where it used to be the largest and busiest shipyard in Asia in the early 20th century. From then until the mid-80s, the dockyard kept changing ownership until it became what it is today. Its history and uniqueness are not known by many. Hence why you should pay a visit if you haven’t and pay a tribute to Whampoa’s glory days.

Location: 6 Shung King St, Hung Hom, Hong Kong
