have a drink

Wan Chai is my favorite place in Hong Kong to have a drink in a pub and relax. Of course you can find also many restaurants and disco bars.

Better than LKF since its not crowded. Older expat groups. Book for quality restaurants. Pubs, clubs and basic food places on Lockhart road. Other areas like Shipp street have a higher quality establishments. If you want the red light experience Lockhart and Jaffe road. Otherwise a wander around Wan Chai is relaxed and easier compared to Causeway Bay and LKF... More

So we have gone here and the area in general is lined with shady establishments. This is the closest thing in HK to a redlight district. Beware of the buy me drinks bars if you are looking for a drink. Id suggest looking up a destination and sticking to an itinerary

Although mostly known for its nightlife, Wan Chai is actually a business district and is home to a lot of offices, shopping centers, restaurants, hotels, embassies, cultural centers and the famous Golden Bauhinia square. It is easily accessed via the MTR, bus, tram or the Star ferry and is a busy business area during the day and early evening when... More

You can visit this fascinating district of Hong Kong many times and see a different side every time you visit. From the early morning commuter hustle, through the wide variety shopping, business lunching, early evening ex-pat drinks to groups and single guys visiting the host of girlie bars which come alive at night. A truly fascinating part of Hong Kong

If you only have a day or two, please include a visit to Wan Chai. This old neighborhood has lots of restaurants and shops, with lots of local stores but also many modern and trendy ones. Couleur local at every streetcorner.

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.
