In the early 1900s, Lan Kwai Fong began its urban life being home to street traders. Today, it is one of Hong Kong’s most popular nightlife hot spots with a number of restaurants and bars.
Thanks to Hong Kong’s dominance in Asian cinema, this centre of late-night revelry is so renowned that its official street sign is a popular photography spot amongst locals and tourists. LKF has thus become one of the most important icons in Hong Kong’s tourism industry and is sometimes called a ‘lifestyle brand’.
In recent years, street performing has also taken an important part in Hong Kong’s street culture.
