When it comes to nightlife, its hard to beat the scene in Hong Kong, Asia’s “World City.” With everything from world class performing arts, busy night markets, post clubs and cozy jazz bars, theres a delightful mix of after-dark experiences on offer.

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.
