Took a tram ride along Wan Chai and its a place where old meets new and vice versa. Dropped by Hennesy road and strolled along the streets, taking pictures of the sights and savoured the sounds. Great place to visit

When you reach Wan Chai, the must-do is to go to Capital Cafe and order a meal. Most will order a set meal - macaroni, scrambled eggs with toast and tea/coffee. Really filling and good; the true cha chan ting experience. Do also order their truffle scrambled eggs YUM. Pls note that the tea they give you all at the... More

Enjoy the big city light in this area as the store signs stick way out into the street. There is so much local life to see here with all the small shops, bars and restaurants. Take the tram and see it from above and then get off and into the action.

The Wan Chai Market is an interesting minor attraction if you are interested in seeing open, wet or street markets when traveling. This is actually one of the largest open style markets on Hong Kong island, where locals can find food produce of all many quite cheaply. It is also a rather photogenic market for those interested in snapping a... More

One of the most happening places for various activities. Be a little careful while walking on Lockhart road. The girls standing in front of the clubs can drag you in and ask you to buy them drinks and so on and you could be ripped in a few minutes.

What a place, it's crammed full of vendors with everything you could ask for and more. There's not enough space to turn around with a backpack on but it's worth the squishiness and don't forget to ask for their best price. In Hong Kong you'll notice people charging their mobile phones from handy little battery packs. I bought a middle... More

This as close to the real Hong Kong as one can get. Forget the glamour and glitz that defines the Malls full to bursting point with designer outlets, get down and dirty in the street markets. The sights are stunning but not for the squeamish. The smells challenge the senses but the reward is being where ordinary go about their... More

My female friend and I came to Wan Chai to meet friends for dinner not realising it was the red-light district. Had we known we would have chosen more discreet clothing and not stood under a big billboard while we waited for our friend to get in touch to give us directions to our meeting point...
