I recommend you visit HK during winters. It would make for a great walk around on foot in these areas as getting a taxi from Kowaloon to Wan Chai and back is a nightmare. That aside, the area is just too good. Really charming with a touch of Old world still intact. I actually went inside a small football ground... More

Hong Kong has really cool neighborhoods but this one is among the best. There are a lot of small shops and eateries and it is less touristic than other places. I recommend visiting it!

My family has relatives from father's side that resides in China and Hong Kong, therefore travelling to HK is an annual (or bi-annually) event. We have been to Wan Chai on every trips we made to HK and yet we still find things that amazes us each and everytime. Wan Chai gave you the feeling of a high rise busy... More

Wan Chai and Central are among the first area developed in Hong Kong, now, a mix of business districts, commercial, street markets and residentials. The ancient Hung Shing temple is maintained on the main street, between two skycrapers which makes it more dramatic where the ancient world meets with modern time. Hung Shing temple was built during the Qing dynasty... More

The area is full of bustling shopping streets distinctly different to Central . In a way more local and real ? Believe it or not we sought out the area for the Cheers wool shop at the western ( starting end) of Hennesey Road. It was a little bit too bustling and local for me so I headed north to... 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.
