Nightlife in Hong Kong
By Viator, September 2013
Hong Kong has a reputation for being prohibitively expensive for budget travelers, and while it can be pricy, it doesn’t have to be. One of the city’s top attractions and a necessity while you’re in Hong Kong, the Symphony of Lights, is also completely free.
Where you decide to go for a night on the town is largely a matter of taste. Central District, home of the super trendy Lan Kwai Fong, is known for its rowdy collection of bars and clubs that enforce a dress code to attract the hip, young clientele, whereas the neighborhood surrounding the Central-Mid-Level escalators south of Hollywood Road are the place to find ethnic restaurants or hookah bars. For a more upscale experience, hit up the collection of bars in Knutsford Terrace in Kowloon.
For something a little more toned down, you’ll find a top-notch performing arts scene, with regular performances by the Hong Kong Ballet Company, Hong Kong Dance Company and a host of local theater groups staged throughout the year.
The end of the day after the sun goes down is also a great time to experience the fast-paced pulse of Hong Kong. Take a walk along the Tsim Sha Tsui promenade (also a prime viewing spot for the Symphony of Lights, grab a bite to eat in the busy Temple Street Night Market or do some window shopping along Nathan Road’s Golden Mile.
