Here is my review on Wan Chai’s Lockhart: - Attraction Highlight: Walk the surrounding of Wan Chai and we cannot name whole area as red district. Only Lockhart Road is the street of pole bar with many Philippine ladies which is the red district area and tourist traps. Attraction Tip: If you really want to experience Lockhart nightlife, then the... More

Cross str, Ta Wo St well great for local fruits!! Also great for a view into local life. Butchers, Fishmongers, green grocers. Didn't see anything touristy / local handmade stuff or similar. mostly for the locals to do their food shopping.

This part of Hong Kong tends to go around the clock. A lot of travelers and expats end up at the Wan Chai area after partying elsewhere. It's the kind of place which is happy to take people in who are still keen to party! This is also the 'red light district' of Hong Kong and there are plenty of... More

This is a very crowded area for Hong Kong's night life populated by locals and expatriates. The atmosphere is more authentic than other more commercial or renovated areas.

We came here specifically to browse through the street wet market. This is something not found in many places anymore. The interesting open markets( & adjacent shops sells all kinds of vegetables, fruits, meat, confectionery, etc). Its a particularly refreshing experience with the cool weather. Its a fresh perspective compared to the usual shopping malls. Of course you can't miss... More

Bars shops nightlife and more. One of the most agile scenes I have seen especially after midnight in the street. Mixture of locals and ex-pads and tourists.

I used to live in HK and still travel here regularly on business and I always stay in Wan Chai as there are some great hotels at good value prices and the restaurants here are also far better value than in say Central and the quality and atmosphere is still excellent. (See my many various HK Hotel and Restaurant Reviews).... More

Many bars clubs cafes and restaurants all within a relatively small area makes for a fun zone, less hiso pretentious than LKF and certainly better value. The party starts Friday night and runs right through the whole weekend at bars such as 109, Players, and Flame amongst others. Sleep when you die...

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.
