In Chinese (Cantonese to be specific) Sai Ying Pun means west camp. Sai Ying Pun is located on the western side of Hong Kong Island, still visible to neighbouring Kowloon.
It’s built on the steep sloping Victoria Peak, shy of Kennedy town. The area has in 2015 been opened up by MTR driving an influx of interest from locals and expatriates alike, flocking for the temporary rental reprieve and the advantage of close proximity to Central.
Queen’s Road has always meandered through Sai Ying Pun, but the introduction of MTR (Hong Kong’s elite mass rapid train system) has brought a degree of gentrification and along with it a plethora of new dining experiences. Bars, delis and restaurant’s attracted by SYP’s lower rents.
