Stories from the Street by Walk DVRC

More than a century ago Des Voeux Road was Hong Kong's bustling waterfront promenade known simply as "the Praya, or "next to the sea". The place was the first point of arrival for merchants, labourers, artists and fortune seekers from Shanghai, Guangzhou and beyond. This video collects and shares the stories and thoughts of Chinese entrepreneurs and shopkeepers along and around Des Voeux Road Central (DVRC). Through photographs and interviews, Walk DVRC Ltd. wants to showcase the vibrant culture of the street to highlight how this rich history should be preserved and celebrated.
