If you have some time to just wander the city - this is a good neighborhood in which to do so. If you aren't about checking boxes of tourist sites, this area is great way to get to know Hong Kong. There are many cool shops, bars and restaurants.

Our hotel was located close to Soho, and therefore spent quite a bit of time walking the neighbourhood. There are plenty of great bars and cafes and the nightlife is always happening, no matter what day of the week.

Whether you're looking for some great bars, smashing restaurants of varying cuisines, or just a cafe to watch the world go by, this is a definite must when visiting Hong Kong. (PS: if you're looking for a fun bar with various craft beers, check out Texas BBQ which was one of my favourites!)

This mid-level area is of interest to Westerners, with old buildings and small traditional shops of interest to foreigners such as antique shops, and a lot of fusion restaurants too.

We tried to explore SoHo after midnight on a Saturday night and it felt deserted. Perhaps some places close early or we were in a completely wrong area of SoHo? We did find a nice bar to sit down and enjoy a few beers but we would definitely not come back to the area.

My husband and I enjoyed walking around Soho and embracing the mix of East and West! The wonderful atmosphere surrounding this area was exciting and a must see. It is close to Central and all in walking distance. We were very impressed.

If you are looking to get off the beaten track a little, head up the hill from central into Soho region. It has everything from small independent eating places, to souvenirs, to independent fashion houses to antiques. It is lovely to stroll around and you definitely get your exercise in

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
