Yau Ma Tei
Yau Ma Tei is an area in the Yau Tsim Mong District in the south of the Kowloon Peninsula. To the north of that is the Mong Kok area. My post on Hong Kong explains more about the different parts of Hong Kong. Yau Ma Tei, is the region between the Jordan and Yau Ma Tei MTR stations and the Mong Kok area continues from Yau Ma Tei to Prince Edward MTR stations. Within the two areas are plenty of what is called walk-ups or One Women Brothels which are not illegal by any means.

As I promised, here’s Wan Chai 2. If you haven’t read the First of Wan Chai posts for 2019 then you should go back and read that. That is where I wrote about the famous Bar 109 and the Sunday afternoon Parties. So let me restart from where I left and talk about what happens in the places I refer to as “Underground and Overhead” venues – the likes of Neptune 3, Hong Kong Café, Makati that have afternoon parties. The story after the afternoon parties and on weeknights is a bit different. Then there are those who spend vacation in Hong Kong and engage in some form of “working” to cover the cost of the vacation and then also the street walkers.
Afternoon parties are mainly to cater for the Domestic Helpers who come in large numbers to spend their Sunday afternoon. As I said before a sizable portion of expat workers are the Domestic Helpers. Apart from that there are also those who have regular jobs such as work in beauty salons, other restaurants, bars who work 5 to 6 days a week and have an evening off on a weekday. Where do they go when they want some fun? The Underground and Overhead venues – the likes of Neptune 3, Hong Kong Café, Makati, Sparks and even Escape. They are all patronised by few groups of people at night. Most venues do not have cover charge or at least I have not come across any who do have cover charge at night other than the eve of a public holiday if at all. However, not sure about Makati. During my visit to Hong Kong once during Chinese New year, on all 4 days I was there, I never went to Makati because of cover charge. However, I have been to all venues that I talk about at some time.Continue reading “Wan Chai 2”
