Rex Yam, co-founder of Doughnut, recommends establishments owned and loved by the new generation

Rex Yam founded local backpack brand, Doughnut, with his business partner, Stephen Cheng in 2010. The pair started with an online store before moving into a brick-and-mortar shop in Sham Shui Po in 2013. “Some people think of Sham Shui Po as a poor and shabby neighbourhood but actually, a lot of young people come here especially to buy fabric, or to eat Wai Kee’s pig liver noodles, or to shop around Golden Computer Centre… It’s a very fun place,” says Mr Yam. He’s witnessed how the neighbourhood’s evolved over the last few years. “We were probably the first young designer brand to open in this area. Nowadays, there are a lot of interesting cafés and shops, such as Form Society or the stores on Tai Nan Street,” he says, adding, “we try to collaborate with the owners of these businesses. It’s really revitalised this neighbourhood.”

A piece from HKwalls’ 2016 city-wide street art festival, Man Fung Building has become one of the most Instagrammable locations in Hong Kong. The building was given a facelift by Madrid-based street artist Okuda, who painted a multicoloured mural of a dog that covers the entire block. Aside from this building, HKwalls’ artists also left their mark on other sites around Sham Shui Po, including the Golden Computer Centre and Arcade.

You can observe this art piece from public areas. Please do not enter private properties without permission.
