Wong Chuk Hang At the edge of Aberdeen Harbour on the south side of Hong Kong Island, Wong Chuk Hang, known as WCH, is a narrow district of former factories and warehouses that were repurposed into art galleries and cafés when plans for a new train station there were announced a decade ago. Like Manhattan’s Meatpacking District was 25 years ago, the gritty, but trendy, neighborhood is also home to fashion showrooms, furniture and housewares stores, cool bars, and all manner of eating spots, from Vietnam noodle joints to New York–style delis. The train station has opened, so the neighborhood is destined to change again, but for now it’s still an interesting, low-key enclave for folks with an arty streak.
