Things To Do in Wan Chai

Originally settled in 1889, it was a working-class residential enclave. That changed after 2004, when Swire Properties opened Three Pacific Place and the Star Street Precinct, which comprises the sloping roads surrounding the new complex. Wan Chai and Star Street have evolved into a shopping mecca with fabulous restaurants, bars, galleries, florists and home design outlets.

 

Properties Advice

A mix of mid-rise older style apartments or ultra-modern, relatively compact high rises.

 

Travel & Connections

Wan Chai MTR station is a roughly 10-minute ride to Central and can be walked in about 25 minutes, mostly under cover.

 

Perks

Improved landscaping has gentrified some of the tourist-heavy streets. It’s easier to access Central on foot, with Three Pacific Place connecting with Admiralty MTR Station. Landmarks and skyscrapers  include the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) Central Plaza and Hopewell Centre.
