Amongst the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong’s ultra modern skyscrapers, traffic filled streets and over seven million citizens, there is a gem of a neighborhood. This city’s most savvy citizens know that Star Street is the place to go for trendsetting boutiques, delightful restaurants and hip yet understated nightlife. This area of low-rises has a history beginning with Hong Kong’s first power station in 1889. The streets surrounding this area were named the sun, the moon, and the stars - the natural elements that generate electricity. Thus Sun Street, Moon Street and Star Street were born, and some of the oldest streets in the neighborhood.
