We ended up here. Close to MTR, Happy Valley, The Market, Nightlife, Star Ferries etc... Plenty to do and convenient to explore from. Seemed pretty safe to us to.... Not so much of the "World of Suzy Wong" left for sure.

Wan Chai is a brilliant location to stay in Hong Kong. It is easily accessible by the MTR as well as having the Tram (which is extremely cheap) that runs down to Central. It is also very easily accessible to the airport either by train via Central or you can get the bus directly from Wan Chai with a bus... More

Having lived in Hong Kong just a review of Wan Chai from nightlife and computer shopping perspective. For the rest see other reviews. This is the place for late night, night life. It will stop maybe in the morning. After you go LAN Kwai Fung first, you end up here for fun after 1am. My favorites are Neptunes 3, Insomnia... More

Our hotel was located in Wan Chai and it was an excellent area as a base. Within walking distance of the Star Ferry terminal, the Wan Chai MTR, and the tram lines. It is also a great area to explore, day or night. During the day (early morning) we walked to a local market amazed by the vast array of... More

Cannont recommend this area highly enough. Have stayed here twice and visited so many times. Well located close to the CBD with tram, train, bus and ferry options all plentiful. Many, many food drink and shopping options. Some a little touristy but others exceptionally good value with local authentic stuff. This area can be crowded but it is generally very... More

Awesome place, I can't wait to go back again. I was there however so briefly, but had a blast. Just a tip, if you take the bus from the airport, just study where you need to take the bus back, HK has a maelstrom of bus routes and I got lost and missed my flight. I opted eventually fro the... More

Each time we visit Hong Kong, we are sure to come to Wan Chai. One of our favorite stalls is located within the air-conditioned and very clean Wan Chai market, which sells peidan (century eggs) which are super creamy and delicious. The stalls in the market also sell very fresh fish, meat, vegetables and fruits. In fact, you can even... More

Seeing the wet markets stalls opened from early morning till late 8pm which is rare in Singapore where the wet markets typically ends around noon latest. There are a lot of stalls along the streets selling dried goods,... More

Central location for tourists. We stayed there, very easily accessible, nearby to Star ferry pier, Wan chai shopping and restaurant places, HK convention centre and Causeway bay. Good place to stay if you are visiting HK. Lots of places nearby can be explored by foot or short ride.
