Wan Chai is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Hong Kong, and possibly its most notorious. Besides its shops and restaurants, Wan Chai lures tourists and locals alike with thumping nightclubs and some rather raunchy bars. Legendary Wan Chai establishments like Amazonia, Dusk Till Dawn, Joe Bananas, Spicy Fingers and the Chili Club pack in the crowds with live music. The gargantuan Hong Kong Exhibition and Convention Centre is located in Wan Chai, as are well-priced business hotels like the Fleming, the Empire and the Cosmopolitan.
