Right in the heart of Hong Kong
, Wan Chai is renowned for its red light district but behind this reputation is an area full of culturally interesting things to do. Our Wan Chai hotels will keep you in the thick of the action while also offering excellent access to public transport to travel around the island.
Wan Chai is typical bustling Hong Kong with tall buildings and neon soaked streets and it certainly doesn't lack any character. The intersection of Jaffe Road, Lockhart Road and Luard Road is where the nightlife gets going and this area is littered with bars, shopping and the red lights already mentioned. For American sailors on shore leave this intersection is home but for those of you looking for something different in Wan Chai there is plenty more to see. Nearby Victoria Peak offers stunning views across the futuristic Hong Kong landscape from 1800 feet up. The tram up to the top provides a taste of colonial Hong Kong and there are a variety of viewpoints which look equally fantastic during the day and at night.
Another major attraction close by to our Wanchai hotels is the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre
. It was here in 1997 that Great Britain handed over sovereignty of Hong Kong back to the People's Republic of China after a 99 year lease. These days the site is used for business purposes and for huge exhibitions and the building is very useful for any travellers heading to Hong Kong for business. Using your Wan Chai hotel as a base, a family trip to one of the most popular theme parks in the world, Ocean Park Hong Kong
, is another great way to spend the day.
The charm of Wan Chai lies in its unique mixture of new and old. The buildings maybe getting higher but the character of Hong Kong is retained at street level and for a true Asian metropolis experience this district comes highly recommended. Book your flight to Hong Kong
