Named Soho due to its being SOuth of HOllywood Road, this entertainment and dining area between central Hong Kong and Sheung Wan is a great representation of modern Hong Kong as it traverses the line between the colonial architecture and dishes of its Chinese history and the nightlife and expat residences of its present. Accessed via the world's longest outdoor escalator, this neighborhood, despite lacking overt cultural landmarks, is a great area to explore for the eaters and drinkers among you. According to our figures, we believe that includes literally everyone.
As far as cuisine, there is quite a variety spread around the neighborhood, from quality Italian and French standards to vegan cafes and classic Chinese take-out. As for nightlife, work your way toward the intersection of Staunton and Peel for a surprising mix of sophistication (wine bars and cocktail lounges) and the unpretentious (pubs like The Globe).
It's pretty simple. If you're one to ask exactly how long that hawker food has been drawing flies or want to avoid the seediness of other nightlife districts, then the Soho is a premium place to spend your time.
