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.

Wan Chai has some great restaurants and energy at night. One street is known as hooker hill so I would stay clear of there if you have a family. It is also not a bad neighborhood to walk through if you love walking to explore the city. It is right in between Causeway Bay and Central.

The benefit of staying on the Island side versus Kowloon in Hong Kong is the ability to ride the MTR subway line which criss crosses east to west. Also the double decker trams which pass in the same direction. At each stop on MTR the area has blossomed into a hectic, crowded, shopping paradise. Sheung Wan, Central, Causeway Bay and... More

Well what can be said about Wan Chai, it is an incredibly diverse area with entertainment, shopping and dinning for every budget and level of experience. Having already spent a lot of time on the Kowloon Peninsula side of Hong Kong I stayed in a hotel in Wan Chai for the last few days on my last venture to Hong... More
