Yau Tsim Mong District – Back on the Mainland, this district is a very populated area with Mongkok making it to the Guinness Book of World Records for the highest population density in the world. The waterfront, tourist centres, the old commercial and residential developments provide all kind of styles of locations possible for filmmakers with projects involving the grass roots. From crowded street under ugly concrety facades to packed residential structures, passing by quaint shops and eateries. Director Johnnie To has set many of his crime flicks in the area (Election, PTU, Breaking News).

Info on the district can be found on the Home Affairs Department website. (Map of the area)

The Diocesan Boys' School / 拔萃男書院


Location: 131 Argyle Street, Mong Kok 旺角亞皆老街131號
Film: Echoes Of The Rainbow 歲月神偷 (2010) / Alex Law 羅啟銳

拔 萃男書院(簡稱男拔萃、DBS)是香港一所傳統名校,創立於1869年。
男拔萃舊名曰字樓孤子院(Diocesan Home and Orphanage)、拔萃書室(Diocesan School and
Orphanage)、拔萃男書室(Diocesan Boys' School and Orphanage)。
成績驕人,香港不少官商、文化名人皆於此 畢業,國父孫中山 (Sun Yat-sen) 也曾於1883年在
此短暫就讀。電影《歲月神偷》(Echoes Of The Rainbow) 的導演羅啟銳 (Alex Law) 也出身自男
拔萃, 這部導演的自傳式電影也曾在男拔取景,片中更有多名真正的男拔師生客串演出。

The Diocesan Boys' School, a traditional elite school in Hong Kong, was established in 1869. The school was initially located in Bonham Road, Hong Kong Island and moved in 1926 to its present site in Mong Kok. The school students are known to have outstanding performance in various fields such as studies, sports or music. Many officials, businessmen and celebrities have graduated from this school. Sun Yat-sen had studied here shortly in 1883.
The director of Echoes of the Rainbow (Alex Law) is also a graduate of the Diocesan Boys' School. Some scenes in his semi-autobiographic film were shot here. Many extras in the film are actually real teachers and students from the school.

Hung Wan Café / 鴻運冰廳餅店


Location: 726 Shanghai Street, Mong Kok, Hong Kong 上海街726號
Film: Election 2 黑社會2之以和為貴 (2006) / Dir: Johnnie To 杜琪峰

鴻 運冰廳餅店位於近太子部分的上海街,是一間典型的香港老冰室,店內的裝置非常懷舊,
特別是那條長長的木樓梯,令我想起和聯勝的辦事人林懷樂 (任達華 / Simon Yam)
(黑社會2之以和為貴 / Election 2),從樓梯上目見兒子與另一字頭的古惑仔為伍;
(周星馳 / Stephen Chow) (行運一條龍 / Lucky Guy)。

Hung Wan Cafe is a typical Hong Kong café located in Shanghai Street in the Prince Edward area. It has an interior decoration reminiscent of less modern times in HK, in particular a wooden staircase.
In Election 2, Lam Lok (Simon Yam) sees his son mingles with rascals of another gang from this staircase.
The fragrance of the custard pie in the cafe also reminds people of the enchanting Custard Prince (Stephen Chow) from The Lucky Guy.
