Neighborhood: Wan Chai

Once a red light district during the Vietnam War, Wan Chai, in many tourist guidebooks, is still linked with the name Suzie Wong. Although it had the reputation of being a sailors' paradise in the late 1950s, it is mainly a business and entertainment area nowadays. Bars, dance halls, nightclubs and karaoke rooms co-exist with modern office plazas, art centers and a wide variety of inexpensive restaurants. The rows of narrow streets house all sorts of interesting shops including printers, small fashion outlets, sign-writers and so on. You can also find many street stalls around the area.
