Ghost Festival, the Chinese version of Halloween, is on 16 August this year. Here is a countdown of the top 10 haunted locations in Hong Kong. Those with a faint heart, beware and read at your own risk.


Located at between Kui In Fong and Shing Wong Street in Sheung Wan, Bridges Street is another haunted place related to the Japanese invasion during World War II.

It was rumoured that Bridges Street was once a Japanese barrack during the war and when Japan surrendered in 1945, the soldiers committed mass suicide inside the barrack. Since then, the hauntings began – residents in the neighbourhood said they often heard footsteps like the sound of an army marching and saw shadows of the soldiers at night, while some reported sobbing coming from the YMCA Hall.
