Chun Yeung Street is properly represented the local neighbourhood. It has earned a name of "Little Fujian" or "Little Shanghai"; it is also named as "Little Thailand" simply just because the "Ding Ding" tram passes through the street right next to the local markets. You will find loads of stores that sell food from Fujian and Shanghai there. Things are rather cheaper than any other markets in the area; which makes it the most visited neighbourhood in North Point for sure.
The North Point Terminus is located at one end of the Chun Yeung Street. It is No.3 tram terminal in North Point that only offers tram service to Shek Tong Tsui. There is a hidden local restaurant under the footbridge at the terminus. Make sure you stop by when you spot such secret place!
