Lan Kwai Fong

1) Lan Kwai Fong (must see)

Lan Kwai Fong is located in the Central district of Hong Kong Island. This is a small square of streets which is a popular tourist area in Hong Kong for dining, drinking and clubbing. Originally this area had been dedicated to hawkers before World War II but during the mid-1980s, it underwent a renaissance. The street is L-shaped, and its 2 ends join D'Aguilar Street.

During the early days, Lan Kwai Fong square had housed many mui yan or marriage arrangers. This was a role that was exclusively held by women. This is the reason it was called Mui Yan Hong or Hong Leung Hong (medium person lane).

During the 1970s Allan Zeman moved to Hong Kong. He was a German-Canadian businessman, and he felt that the area needed a more western style restaurant. This is why in 1983 he opened “California” in Lan Kwai Fong. After the success of his restaurant, Allan Zeman invested 32 million Dollars (HK Dollars) to purchase an entire block in the area and made many entertainment destinations for tourists as well as expatriates. The street became so well known after this that he is actually referred to as “The Father of Lan Kwai Fong”.

Why You Should Visit:
One of the best places in the world for bar hopping, club hopping all night, every day. Hongkongers and tourists flock here for the nightlife, and bouncers will be inviting you into their bar.

Tip:
Go early (before 9 pm) and you can enjoy food & drinks at very reasonable prices.
