Where the ‘67 riots broke out
The hood’s prime shopping arcade
It may look like just another housing estate in Hong Kong, but it is home to the extraordinary Metropolitan Department Store with over 160,000 square feet of retail fun, one of North Point’s best known shopping arcades.
An interesting historical note is that during the famous 1967 riots this place served as the rioter’s basecamp. British police intelligence later found improvised explosive devices, battlefield hospitals and operation rooms inside the Metropole Building.
