What you should know about Wan Chai
Hotels in Wan Chai
There are only a select few Wan Chai hotels in its newly-expanded business area located near the waterfront. The Grand Hyatt Hong Kong is one, a 5-star hotel that takes opulence to new levels with its gorgeous lobby, 9 restaurants, outdoor pool, and golf course. Funkier hotels are found across Gloucester Road, like the creatively styled Mira Moon. This boutique Wan Chai hotel receives great reviews for its well-appointed rooms and free-to-use hotel smartphones. Hotel Indigo Hong Kong Island is further up the hill, a 4-star hotel in Wan Chai praised for its large rooms and unique glass-fronted roof-top pool.
Things to see in Wan Chai
The biggest and boldest sights in Wan Chai are found along its harbor front. The Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre is the newest, its bird-like roof being a striking feature of this top venue for international trade fairs. Behind it is the Hong Kong Academy for the Performing Arts, known for its Broadway musical productions, as well as its drama, concert, and dance performances. Once you cross Gloucester Road, you enter the energetic, crowded streets around Lockhart Road, one of Hong Kong's foremost bar areas. Further inland you'll find the historic parts of Wan Chai, its streets lined with tong-lau shop-houses and colonial-era buildings. Older than all of these is the Hung Shing Temple, which dates back at least as far as 1847, and maybe even earlier. This tiny temple, dwarfed by surrounding buildings, is built on rock foundations and brings together Taoist and Buddhist influences.
Good for all travelers
Wan Chai is the sort of Hong Kong neighborhood that appeals to many different kinds of visitors. Much of the area is commercial, home to many mid-sized business offices, and with its mammoth convention complex, it naturally attracts many business travelers. They'll find plenty of accommodation in Wan Chai geared to their needs. Lovers of culture will find its arts and performance centers appealing, as well as the diversity of its historic buildings, running from Qing Dynasty to Neoclassical to Bauhaus styles. The crowds are inevitably drawn here as dusk falls and the neon lights of the streets around Lockhart Road flicker to life.
How to get to Wan Chai
