Hong Kong Wan Chai & Causeway Bay Neighbourhood Guide
Wan Chai has a reputation for being a red-light district area, especially if you’re a foreigner in the area. More recently, parts of Wan Chai like Ship Street and Star Street have gone through a change. Run down shops and dodgy bars are being replaced with trendy burger joints, tapas bars and designer boutiques. But there’s still plenty of local culture here - just visit Wan Chai wet market to see a real local scene. Stay in this area if you want a bit of the old mixed with a bit of the new. Nearby Causeway Bay is known for its shopping and Japanese restaurants. Start at the Sogo department store and wander down to the Times Square mega-mall, popping into the many shopping centres along the way.
