A Walk Through Wan Chai

Wan Chai has attracted an international reputation for its colourful nightlife, but it’s also one of Hong Kong’s top spots for shopping and strolling. Those attending a trade fair at the nearby Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre will certainly want to take some time to step out onto Wan Chai’s streets and soak up the buzzy atmosphere.

The area offers an incredibly diverse range of street-side shops, cheap markets, and numerous computer centres that stock some of the most affordable top-of-the-range electronics, gadgets and computer accessories in the city. Those feeling hungry or thirsty after a long day will be spoiled for choice with Wan Chai’s enormous selection of restaurants and bars, where the taste buds can enjoy anything from Chinese-style seafood hotpots, to delicious dim sum, to British-style pub food and other international cuisine, to classic beers and colourful cocktails.
