Central Hong Kong is home to gleaming skyscrapers of banks and financial institutions, stylish shopping malls and many of the coolest restaurants, bars and clubs. It’s the most cosmopolitan area of Hong Kong Island, yet traditional Cantonese touches are everywhere – from the exotic street signs of neon-lit Chinese characters to the bustling street markets.

Public transport like the subway, tram, and the famous Star Ferry crossing at Victoria Harbour connect this vibrant district to the rest of Hong Kong. Nightlife is one of Central’s main highlights, with bustling pubs and nightclubs lining the streets in Lan Kwai Fong and SoHo.
