Pottinger Street in Central Hong Kong serves as a local shopping paradise extending from Queen’s Road to Stanley Street and Wellington Street. Pottinger street is categorically famous for costume shopping by the locals and the tourists, especially during Halloween. It is also known as "Stone Slab Street" because of the unevenly paved granite stone steps.
Named after the first Governor of Hong Kong - Sir Henry Pottinger, the Pottinger Street has a great historical value. The old section of the market, lined with wooden kiosks and shops selling souvenirs and fancy-dress costumes, is a frequent venue for photoshoots and movie scenes. Built during the colonial times, this street follows a perfect colonial layout with handrails, cobbled stones and huge buildings with pillars exhibiting colonial aesthetics.
