Wan Chai & Causeway Bay          灣仔 & 銅鑼灣
comprising the neighbourhoods of Wan Chai, Causeway Bay and Happy Valley. It is the home for about 150,000 residents, but also
doubles as a popular town centre for over 600,000 workers, shoppers and commuters who flock to the district daily.

Wan Chai was originally a fishing village. Throughout the years, it has developed from a residential area to a prime centre of
business, conventions, exhibitions, cultural and sports activities, entertainment and shopping.

Famous heritage spots in the district include Hung Shing Temple, the former Wan Chai Post Office (now the Environmental Resource
Centre) and Lovers' Rock. There are also many well-known modern buildings and facilities, such as the Hong Kong Convention and
Exhibition Centre, the Happy Valley Racecourse, Hong Kong Stadium, Vitoria Park, Times Square and Central Plaza.
