This neighbourhood stretches along the western coast of Hong Kong Island and is famous for its sunsets and the stunning views of the western approaches of the Lamma channel, a busy shipping route.
It starts at the campus of Hong Kong University at the extreme western end of Midlevels and extends all the way to Cyberport. Unlike the southern part of Hong Kong, this western coastline does not have any beaches. There are some hiking trails which start there and continue up to the parks and trails of the Peak. It is less touristy than some other parts of the island and predominantly a residential area.
Pokfulam contains a diverse range of housing, from low density lowrise apartments and houses in the Bisney Road / Consort Rise area and Sassoon Road, to the high density multi-phase developments such as Baguio Villas and Cyberport. Typically, the apartments and houses tend to offer larger space for the dollar than the Midlevels and other areas along the Southside of the island. Many of the older blocks have good sized balconies from which to enjoy the sunsets.
There are 3 large developments which are popular because of their excellent facilities for families. One is Scenic Villas, 7 mid-rise blocks consisting of all 4 bedroom spacious apartments with large balconies. Another is Baguio Villas, divided into upper and lower phases.
