With its many bars and restaurants Wanchai is a vibrant place to eat and drink and take in the Hong Kong nightlife. A must see area.

This is more of an old business area, anchored by the Convention centre, Hyatt and Renaissance hotels. Many business buildings and loads of working folk. Gets incredibly crowded during peak hours, not pleasant for a tourist. No shopping nor eating options too

I was travelling here to meet my pal for a beer after work. It was not until the day after that I told by my colleague about the areas reputation. My friend & I chatted with some quite jolly ladies in the bar - OK & now it all makes some sense! I did notice the glitzy dens on the... More

My girlfriend wanted to kick on after the happy valley races and we went to Wan Chai for a bit of fun and a drink. Sure, we ended up in a discreet bar initially called Coyotes which was quite nice and he staff very friendly, then we hit a girly bar where they wanted much more of your cash. We... More

An area full of bars/restaurants with girls mainly from Philippines. Can dance with the girls or treat them many many drinks spending lots of money for really low quality fun. Every lonely expatriate has been here, seeking a hug to wake up in the morning in or just try the girls. I personally dislike the place but occasionally go to... More

A less salubrious part on Hong Kong but a nice area to stay in. Shopping at time square and lots of local markets. Also the convention centre is worth a browse around. Easy to get to central from here.

In the heart of the Hong Kong Island shopping area this will give you lots of the taste of the city. Highly colorful and commercial.

You'll smell the fish market from far away. Visit before dark, as this area is also Hong Kong's red light district and especially guys wandering alone will attract a lot of attention. MTR station Wan Chai, exit A3.

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.
