Walking Tour: Soho Sights in Hong Kong

The Soho district in Hong Kong is one of my favourites for walking tours in this city (the others being Wanchai, Causeway Bay and Mongkok.)  The area is a heady mix of commercial and residential buildings - both usually found in the same structures - historical attractions, modern edifices, and ramshackle stalls, with locals, expats and tourists co-existing more or less harmoniously in the same tight, multi-leveled spaces.  Although attempts have been made to geographically define Soho, most taxi drivers (of whose opinions I hold above everyone else's in terms of where everything is in this town) staunchly claim that this Central area south of Hollywood Road (hence its name) encompasses the Central-MidLevels escalator,  the assortment of bars, restaurants, galleries, alleyways, antique stores, souvenir shops, apartment blocks, and houses of worship along Staunton Street, Elgin Street and even as far north as Robinson Road.
