Modes of Travelling in Wan Chai – Best Means of Exploring the City

Bustling precincts of Wan Chai are a shopper's delight, foodie's haven and sightseer's pleasure. Enjoy all thee lures by having your travel modes well planned out; read on for the best transport options.


Geographic's of Wan Chai

Wan Chai sits between the crossing of the Western, Eastern and Central districts. The thoroughfare connects the chief developmental regions of Hong Kong Island and the infrastructure is so well laid out that transport options are excellent. The Eastern edge is made up of the vibrant Causeway Bay and North Point districts; this makes travel for guests at Cosmo Hotel Wan Chai Hong Kong a breeze. In fact some of the most popular hotels in Wan Chai Hong Kong are those that enjoy a position between Causeway Bay and Hong Kong; the most 'happening' touristy districts of all.


Ferry Service in Wan Chai

The only ferry operator in Wan Chai is Star Ferry and really this service is all you need. There are frequent tours from Victoria Harbour across HKCEC that cover Wan Chai and the entire cultural precinct of Tsim Sha Tsui. The Star Ferry is an inexpensive and efficient mode of transportation for crossing the harbour while enjoying scenic views of the city's shoreline.


Mass Transit Railway (MTR)

The MTR line runs beneath Hennessey Road which is a thoroughfare in the neighbourhood. Since Wan Chai is a rather large precinct there are over 50 entry and exit points for the service. You need to take the Island Line in Wan Chai while a recent addition offers a connection to the footbridge grid from the Hong Kong Exhibition and Convention Centre to the Railway Station. This same footbridge spans the corridors of Victoria Harbour to eventually end at the Wan Chai Pier.


Tram Service in Wan Chai

Trams services operate between Shau Kei Wan which is located along the northeast and western edge of Kennedy Town. There is also a circular grid that serves the neighbourhoods of Happy Valley as well as the Happy Valley Racecourse. Tram routes operate along Hennessy Road and Johnston Road.


Taking a Bus in Wan Chai

Buses run along Hennessey Road covering stops around Causeway Bay and Admiralty. They operate in the opposite direction, crossing Johnston Road and Gloucester Road. You have the option of choosing New World Bus routes and the City bus route which also covers the airport to city run. There are Tunnel Bus Routes that cover the Cross-Harbour Tunnel, Eastern Harbour Crossing and Western Harbour Crossing. Located opposite the Star Ferry Pier is a convenient bus terminal.


Taxis in Wan Chai

The Red Taxi is an urban service that operates in Wan Chai; you can call up a taxi via phone or like most locals hail one from the road. Mind you there are certain kerb restrictions that must be adhered to where designated pick up and drop off points must be observed. If you wish to cross Victoria Harbour to Kowloon, look out for taxis with a green plate at the front.


Minibuses in Wan Chai

Wan Chai offers a Green Mini Bus and Red Mini Bus service. The Green service runs on a regular timetable to a fixed schedule and rate. The Red service does run on a government license but does not have fixed schedules; instead they informally offer connections to many points on Hong Kong Island. Fares are displayed at the front of the vehicle.
