Attractions

Blue House

Blue House on Stone Nullah Lane

The Blue House is one of the few last remaining 'Tong Lau', a commercial/residential shop house, built between the 19th century and 1960. When you walk to the quiet alcove of Stone Nullah Lane you will feel like you're stepping back in time into the Wan Chai community, before urban renewal.

Hung Shing Temple

This site is interesting because the temple (dedicated to the deity Hung Shing who protects fishermen from storms), marked the original shoreline on Wan Chai before numerous reclamation projects. The temple was built with boulders from the hillside and its right portion and rear side are sitting on rocks. Officially constructed around 1847, it may have an even longer history as it existed previously as a shrine.

Lovers' Rock

Lovers' Rock

Legend has it that after the untimely death of two star crossed lovers, their spirits now live on in the Lovers' Rock, which now grants wishes to those longing for love. Located around 20 minutes walking distance from Stubbs Road, the nine metre granite monolith is also a lookout point where there is a fantastic view of Victoria Harbour.

The Pawn

This four-storey Wan Chai building has been listed as a local heritage site by the Urban Renewal Authority because of its symbolism in the Wan Chai area. Located in the middle of Johnston Road, the Pawn has been witness to many social and economic changes in Hong Kong. It is now a trendy restobar where you can appreciate the history of the building, accompanied by a long stout.

Wan Chai Post Office

Wan Chai Post Office

The Wan Chai Post Office is the oldest surviving post office building in Hong Kong. Built around 1912, it closed its doors after serving the Wan Chai community for 77 years. It is now a declared monument of Hong Kong and serves as an Environmental Resource Centre. It's a small place, but definitely worth a quick look-see.
