We just spent a couple of days in Hong Kong on a stopover and wanted to see a Chinese street market that is not there for the tourists. This is just that. The whole market and side shops is set over several streets and sells everything. There is every meat, fish and vegetable you could want. There are also shops... More

Had a night out in Wan Chai, what a fantastic area of HK. lots of bars and clubs to choose from and full of British who really know how to party hard. Unfortunately only had time to visit the once but getting back to the hotel at 05:40 every morning would send anyone nocturnal.

Plenty to do, plenty sort eat, plenty to see - oh and plenty to drink lol. This is a City that never ceases to amaze me, something new and intriguing around every corner with history as well as the modern city all in the one place - highly recommended.

i stumbled across Wan Chai by accident on Christmas Day whilst looking for an English pub. I wasn't disappointed a great selection of pubs and bars, lots of happy hour 2 for 1 beer deals and an all round cheaper night out than in Lang Kwai Fong or Knutsford Terrace. Convenient for the MTR to the rest of the city

We stayed at wan chai where at night its quite amusing, perfect for night life with drinking since its also the red light district. But in the morning, you'll be amused with unique clothes, restaurants, concept items and more. I suggest you stay in Wan Chai where its really accessible to go to central and other places.

Wan Chai is one of the first areas developed in Hong Kong. It is a thriving commercial district with offices of many small and medium-sized companies. Wan Chai North features office towers, parks, hotels and skyscrapers most notably the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC), Central Plaza and Hopewell Centre. It is a brilliant location to stay in Hong... More

A friend and I stay at Wan Chai every year when we go to the HK international race meetings in December. It is a fun place, good bars, some very good (but not great) restaurants and quite a few 'girlie bars'. The Queen Victoria is the best pub we go to and always some action with plenty of overseas visitors... More

If you're staying elsewhere, and just passing through, this might be just another neighbourhood. Although it has a reputation for a savoury (or less than savoury) past, and maybe an eclectic present. A bit of urban planning/decor might be in order - but that is hardly unique to WanChai, or to Asia.

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.
