Lan Kwai Fong was once an "expat hangout," but locals have gradually joined in the party fun. Centered around an L-shaped cobblestone lane just above the Central business area, Lan Kwai Fong houses some of the trendiest pubs and entertainment hangouts in town. Every year, during Christmas, New Year's and Halloween, people dress up and parade through the streets. But, whatever the time of year, Lan Kwai Fong is definitely a fun place to see and to be seen.

Pottinger Street is named after the first governor of Hong Kong, Sir Henry Pottinger, and is given the nickname 'Stone Slabs Street' by locals because it is made of granite stone slabs. It was formerly an air-raid precaution tunnel during World War II. The street is between Queen's Road and Hollywood Road, next to the famous Lan Kwai Fong. There are various kinds of stores, restaurants and bars along the street, and because of the fantastic scenery, Pottinger Street often appears in television, movies and wedding pictures.

Hollywood Road is an antique lover's paradise. The street is filled with curio and antique shops of all kinds: from Chinese furniture to porcelain ware, from Buddha sculptures to oriental rugs, from Japanese netsukes to Coromandel screens. Aside from all the antique shops, it has numerous small specialty shops that sell unique home accessories and handmade products. Many of them are inside buildings on upper floors, so always remember to look above street level so as not to miss them.

Incense coils hang from the ceiling of the Man Mo Temple, which was built in the mid-19th Century. It is dedicated to the God of Literature (Man) and the God of War (Mo), and was historically a place where students taking rigorous civil examinations would worship and hope for success. If you're looking for a glimpse into local traditions and culture, definitely pay a visit to this temple while in Hong Kong.

True to its name, Ladder Street is a street of staircases. The staircases are built of granite, which is why they have survived more than a 150 years of damage. With a total length of 250 meters, Ladder Street winds through Queen's Road, Hollywood Road and Man Mo Temple in Sheung Wan, a historic neighborhood. This street appears a lot in local movies and televisions, but somehow not many people know about this hidden gem. Ladder Street is a marvelous piece of architecture in Hong Kong.

It took nearly ten years to acquire enough land to build this colorful skyscraper. Bit by bit, old buildings were purchased until finally work could begin in the late 1990s on the 73-floor structure. A wacky eight-point star section set on soaring braced girders makes the most of the irregular plot of land. At night the building is easy to spot as you just look out for a cascade of ever-changing colors. The exterior lighting system is totally computer controlled, a first in Hong Kong. For a bird's eye view, try Scenario on the 42nd floor just for drinks or a meal.

So the fun evening of partying in Lan Kwai Fong is over, but what to do about a night that is definitely still young? Okay, how about grabbing a few cans of beer from the bar and walking to Duddell Street, which is only five minutes away. Just off Ice House Street, the stone steps at Duddell Street were built between 1875 and 1889 and are lit by the only surviving gas street lamps in Hong Kong. An ideal spot, in fact, for whiling away those late night hours, relaxing and enjoying the night air.
