Western Street (Hong Kong)

Western Street (traditional Chinese: 西邊街; simplified Chinese: 西边街; pinyin: Xībiān Jiē; Cantonese Yale: sai1 bin1 gaai1) is an uphill one-way street (from north to south) in Sai Ying Pun, Hong Kong. It connects Bonham Road in the south and Connaught Road West in the north. There are 337 units in 17 buildings in the street. Addresses are odd on the west side of the street, and mostly even on the east side. However, on the newer part of the street, on the reclamation north of Queen's Road West, the east side has both odd and even numbered addresses.
