If you are searching for the ultimate encapsulation of Hong Kong, look no further than the metropolitan area of Wan Chai in the middle of Hong Kong Island. Not only is it home to major arts venues and modern skyscrapers, but it is also filled with traditional Hong Kong institutions such as Dai Pai Dongs (open-aired restaurants) and venerable religious structures. Teeming with humanity and pulsing with relentless energy at all hours, the area retains an edgy vibe even though it has mostly shed its seedy past as a red light district (immortalized in the movie, The World Of Suzie Wong). A great place to immerse in the big-city hustle and bustle of Hong Kong, check out our list of top Airbnb vacation rentals in Wan Chai.
A gorgeous room with a view, this apartment boasts great vistas of Hong Kong’s iconic harbor front, so you can enjoy its nightly 8 pm laser show in home comforts. Located in the northeastern part of Wan Chai, the apartment is conveniently within 7 minutes’ walk to both the metro station and the ferry terminal to Kowloon. It is also close to the frenetic shopping district of Causeway Bay, with hundreds of eateries and supermarkets in its vicinity. With two bedrooms and three beds, the neat and bright apartment is ideal for small families with its lift access, kitchen, and wireless internet.
