Lan Kwai Fong
You will have most likely have heard the 3 words "Lan Kwai Fong" being mentioned rather regularly while you're in Hong Kong and have wondered what it is that's so fascinating about it.
Well, LKF, which is the shorter and more easily remembered name for this major entertainment spot in the city, is "the" place to be if you want to squeeze out the best that Hong Kong has to offer in nightlife. You can say it's like a mini Ibiza heavily crowded with clubbers every night from bars to clubs and in the streets early till very late. Buzzing with energy located in the business hub of Hong Kong in Central, it'll be difficult not to find a venue that will suit your fancy.
Although clubbing and drinking seems to be all that LKF has to offer, well you would be wrong there. In amongst all these venues you'll be able to find restaurants with cuisines from all over the world, from Italian to Chinese to American.
One thing that I find a little strange is everytime I come across the subject of Lan Kwai Fong when I am speaking to a local Chinese person in Hong Kong, they say they have never been there before, never want to and never will. They seem to have the perception that this place is for expats, which they will find difficulty in communicating to and local revelers who are a little bit more wacky and do not have a proper job and like to cause trouble. I'm not sure where they get this from but they are very wrong. Yes, LKF is a popular location for expats because maybe it's an expensive area and you might need an expats salary to go there, but if you go during happy hour or don't binge, it's surprisingly affordable. Apart from expats, there are equally loads of local Chinese young working professionals from all business backgrounds or students studying for a degree at any of the territories universities.
Give it a try! Come to LKF with your friends and I am sure you will not be disappointed and it'll be a night to remember. Find bars or clubs in Lan Kwai Fong here.
