Explore the neighbourhood

Wan Chai was one of the first areas developed in Hong Kong. Every Chinese New Year, people flock to the outdoor market on Tai Yuen Street to stock up on blooming flowers and festive decorations. Meanwhile, the Wan Chai waterfront is where the century-old Jardine’s Noonday Gun is fired daily, echoing the tradition of setting off firecrackers to signal the start of a new year.

Wan Chai Ferry Pier

Visit the observation deck on the top floor of the Wan Chai Ferry Pier to enjoy a panoramic view of the Victoria Harbour, then take a ferry ride aboard the 125-year-old Star Ferry. The iconic white and green double-deck ferry has a traditional twin-head design, with wooden chairs frames that allow swivelling. The National Geographic Traveler magazine once named the ferry as one of the “50 Must-See Attractions in your lifetime”. Hop on board, sit back, and enjoy the views as you cross the harbour. You can even catch the multimedia light show, ‘A Symphony of Lights’, in the evening!

You’ll find installations that are reminiscent of past Hong Kong, such as traditional metal gates with brightly coloured letterboxes. There’s also a pet park where you can let your furry friends loose and have a good time together.
