7.Wan Chai – An old neighbourhood with new charm

Wan Chai is characterised by the juxtaposition of old and new. Stroll along both sides of the tramway to discover historical East-meets-West architecture, old market-turned-speciality stores, and a bar that was formerly a 19th-century pawn shop. This fusion of tradition and modern has given this old neighbourhood its new charm.

Lee Tung Avenue

The former ‘Wedding Card Street’ has been transformed into a European-style street. The red Chinese lanterns are a reminder to the street’s history as a centre for the wedding invitation card business (red being an auspicious colour associated with festive occasions). It is now home to fusion restaurants, open-air cafés and specialty shops.
