Wan Chai’s socio-economic significance is evident in its land use. Governmental Buildings (e.g. Wan Chai Tower, Revenue Tower and Immigration Tower), skyscrapers (Central Plaza and Hopewell Centre) and the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, where the handover ceremony of Hong Kong took place, stand proudly in the same district.
The endearing atmosphere in Starstreet Precinct is unique in the city. Hipster coffee shops are found amid elegant restaurants. Feeling celebratory? Indulge in a fine dinner at Lee Tung Avenue or Brim28.
Immerse in art and culture at the Hong Kong Arts Centre and The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, where local and international renowned artists perform. Catch a glimpse of the city’s subculture at Comix Home Base, which is located in pre-war Grade II historic buildings.
