Once a red light district during the Vietnam War, Wanchai, in many tourist guidebooks, is still linked with the name Suzie Wong. Although it had the reputation of being a sailors' paradise in the late 1950s, it is mainly a business and entertainment area nowadays. Bars, dance halls, nightclubs and karaoke rooms co-exist with modern office plazas, art centers and a wide variety of inexpensive restaurants. The rows of narrow streets house all sorts of interesting shops including printers, small fashion outlets, sign-writers and so on. You can also find many street stalls around the area.
If you're looking for something to beef up your electronic trove of treasures, Wan Chai is the place to go. This is the place where you can find everything from phones to processors to plasma screens at incredibly affordable prices. (Be sure to bargain, though!)
Just take the MTR Island Line to Wan Chai and get off at exit A4 (Computer Centre) and begin your browsing from there, eventually heading down Henessy Road.
