Wan Chai is super crowded, as all central urban areas in China seem to be. Nonetheless, you'll find plenty of reasons to do some peoplewatching, have a drink and enjoy the pace of Hong Kong in Wan Chai.

I love to visit open area markets when I am in a new city and the Wet Market in Wan Chai is super interesting. Tons of fresh seafood of every variety and species imaginable. Some of the fish have been cut open so that you can see the still beating heart -- a testament to the freshness of the fish.... More

This place is awesome. Lots of things to do. I've been over here at least 25 times for work over the last 6 years and it never gets old. Lockhart Road had endless bars, discos and restaurants to enjoy.

Easy to get to and interesting streets to explore. Photo opportunities are endless and no one hassles you to buy goods. Sights include 'Blue House', Wan Chi Wet Markets and Pak Tai Temple all within a short walking distance of Wanchi MTR

Incredible place to venture to for nightlife, bars and parties. Situated in the heart of the city (I believe!), Wan Chai offers tourists and locals alike a wonderful playground to expel the troubles of the day-- it's an extremely friendly atmosphere, and although it portrays neon lights, inexpensive drinks and partying into the twilight hours, it remains a composed and...

Wan Chai is famous for it numerous bars and wateringholes. This part of Hong Kong is perhaps what you would associate images of Hong Kong with; crowded streets bathed in flourescent neon lights everywhere. There are two particularly famous places of bars here; Lan Kwai Fong which is located on the hillside, making it for a fun experience when drunk.... More

There was a huge variety of toys like Barbie, Play Doh, Lego... The prices were very competitive. Some werea lot cheaper than the prices you will find at malls... More

Staying in Wan Chai / Causeway Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centers of Hong Kong Island. Filled with shops, malls and restaurants, both areas are bustling with people – tourists and locals alike. Causeway Bay has one of the highest rents on the planet, and is a bit more polished and modern than its Wan Chai counterpart. Beneath the surface there is more than meets the eye – find boutique stores in the above ground floors of buildings and wander into side streets to find interesting restaurants and shops tucked away from the main roads. Wan Chai especially has experienced a modern revival in recent times, with an influx of trendy restaurants and bars around the Star Street area. In addition, both areas contain many of Hong Kong’s iconic tourist attractions worthy of your visit.
