High rise buildings, sky high rents, many many shopping malls and expensive car dealers. More Tiffany's, Prada, etc then you've ever seen in such a small area. Contrasting with street stalls on side streets that are selling every animal part you can imagine, fish and vegetables. Meat/chicken not refrigerated. Basically dirty, stinky from cooking some foods. Some of everything to... More

We stayed at the Grand Hyatt on our last trip to Hong Kong and from there it was just like a 10-minute walk to Hennessy Road where endless cafes and restaurants available for good local food. We did not go to the bars area and just enjoyed all the local eateries and shops in the area.

you arrive in Wanchai and realize that HK does indeed never sleep. Wanchai is a world of its own - eateries on every corner , "bars" all around . not a family place

Apart from the night life, which seems to be everybody's focus, there are much to do during day time in Wan Chai. One of the oldest neighbourhood of Hong Kong, you can actually experience the daily life of local HKers first handed. Wan Chai can be easily accessed via basically any public transportations, if you happened to lodge in the... More

We love Wan Chai for the quirky little markets and the traditional Chinese souvenirs, Lots to see and do, food, clothing, toys, go into the little shops behind the market stalls you never know what you might find. Across the road from MTR B2 exit/ entrance.

This where you go if you are after a late night and drinks with friends. There are a range of bars & clubs ranging from strip joints to good clean restaurants. It is pretty safe as long as you are sensible.

Don't be put off by the red light district reputation, for a relaxed night out with live bands, Wan Chai is the place to go.

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.
