About Hong Kong

Including tips for the best time to visit Hong Kong

Hong Kong is one of the world’s most densely populated places and a unique blend of Chinese and western culture. While ultra-modern towers dominate the skyline, beyond the glass and steel of the commercial district, the inner city remains home to ancient holy shrines, maze-like markets, and historic teahouses.

Explore Kowloon's beautiful feng shui temples like Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin, chaotic markets selling everything from spicy stir-fries to lucky waving cats, and Tsim Sha Tsui East Promenade – the best place to view Hong Kong Island and its amazing Symphony of Lights show.

Next, hop on board a Star Ferry headed to Hong Kong Island, the buzzing commercial hub that earned the city its title of East Asia’s financial capital. Ride the funicular to the summit of Victoria Peak to see the city laid out like a row of dominoes in front of a beautiful mountain backdrop.

Even with all the buzz and bustle, Hong Kong still has plenty of quiet places. Spend some time getting lost in Victoria Peak’s woodlands or Kowloon's walled city park. If you're there in the summer, be sure to visit the pristine, white-sand beaches of Clear Water Bay.

the bath tub is just right, my baby loves it so it's good enough for me. Just that the choices and food quality for breakfast is soso only. The location is good just connect with the mall that has lots of restaurants and eateries to choose. The hotel is quite big too and nice.

For a cheap/good value option this is great.

June 20, 2021

For a cheap/good value option this is great. Clean and nice rooms. Great position - Kowloon park, museums, shopping, restaurants. Pool is small. Dogs allowed on the 7th floor. Kids still using the pool late at night so if you are trying to avoid them with a late booking….no point. Avenue of stars-restaurants for fussy kids -there is wildfire and spasso for pizzas etc

Errr this was a staycation lol, so my opinion may vary.

Errr this was a staycation lol, so my opinion may vary... Hong Kong is known for its shopping, so you can find plenty of built-up/ indoor activities along the coastal MTR stations of Hong Kong Island (like malls/ shopping/ karaoke etc). Some nice harbour cruises too though (I recommend Dukling for the last remaining authentic (restored) red sails junk boat ride). The better hiking routes are further inland though (southern district), or in Kowloon/ New Territories. But Hong Kong's public transport is such that it's easy to get around either by MTR, bus or on foot. So you can get around easily to most places even if you aren't staying there - just be prepared for some hills, though!

The worst hotel experience ever.

November 8, 2020

The worst hotel experience ever. The food was terrible and small portions. The same meals were served everyday for the duration of my 2 weeks stay. The hygiene standard of the room was very poor. There was no WIFI signal or was extremely poor when there was. Will not recommend or return again.

A great city that has more to show than what is commonly known. So much energy, it is intense and great! From the impressive food offering for every budget and taste to the malls and skyscrapers, you then start to go a bit away from the center. Great hikes? Done! A lot of outdoor activities? Done! Turquoise water and white sand beaches? of course! 3 days for an overview, a week to get an idea, and much more to see all HK has to offer!
