China

Hong Kong is a city that never sleeps; there is always something to do and some form of entertainment to enjoy. There are a wide range of nightclubs, bars and restaurants that cater to tourists, expats and locals. The most popular areas for bars and lounges are SoHo, Lan Kwai Fong and Wan Chai. SoHo and nearby Wyndham Street offer the most up-market venues and you can generally expect to pay in the region of HK$60 for a pint of beer and HK$50 for a glass of wine. LanKwai Fong is a popular tourist area and prices here are very similar to SoHo. Wan Chai is notorious as an area where strip clubs and massage parlors can be found, but there are also a number of very popular bars that offer live music and entertainment well into the early hours.
