Administratively, it is part of the Central and Western District. The name can be variously interpreted as Upper District (occupying relatively high ground compared to Central and Wan Chai), or Gateway District (perhaps a reference to the location where the British first entered and occupied Hong Kong).Зміст1 History2 Geography3 Features4 The Sheung Wan Route5 Streets6 Transport7 See also8 ReferencesHistorySheung Wan was one of the earliest settled places by the British, and belonged to the historical Victoria City. The site of the original occupation of Hong Kong Island by British forces in 1842 was at Possession Street, between Queen's Road Central and Hollywood Road. A plaque to this effect can be found in Hollywood Road Park at the top of Possession Street. The foot of Possession Street, Possession Point, was at that time on the shoreline, but is now several hundred yards inland due to reclamation.GeographySheung Wan is surrounded by Sai Ying Pun in the west, Central in the east, Victoria Harbour in the north and Mid-Levels in the south.
