Hong Kong Island Things to Do: 148 reviews and 463 photos
Soho, like its London namesake, is a slightly sleazy place to go out for great restaurants, bars and nightclubs. It's not the most expensive or classiest part of the city, but it is a great place to eat well if fusion and quasi-exotic tastes are your thing. One thing to note about Soho is that 95% of the people here are likely foreigners, and you are probably going to see more Caucasians here than in downtown Toronto. Nevertheless, Soho is not a amalgammation of Americanized restaurants and McDonalds clones. It is a cosmopolitan hotspot that exemplifies why Hong Kong is so famous the world over for its laissez-faire attitude to just about any type of culture. Not only will you find every type of cuisine here (there are probably five times as many Brazilian people as there are noodle houses), but you are likely to find the entire spectrum of young professionals from every OECD country here, all mixing and mingling with other foreigners and the occasional Honger. Soho is not on a subway line, so it may be a bit of a hike if you don't take a taxi. During the worst of the summer humidity, that can be quite a sweaty feat, but it's well worth the show you get on the way up.
