Best places to stay in Hong Kong
If you've got a good idea of the geography of Hong Kong, you'll be aware of the main areas to stay. While more remote areas like Lantau Island and New Territories offer quiet, off-the-beaten track places to stay, if you're looking to be in the heart of the city for the true Hong Kong experience, you want to look for accommodation on Hong Kong Island or in Kowloon.
Central, the financial district of Hong Kong, is close to the ferry pier, the famous skyscrapers and high-end shopping centres. Like Kowloon, there's plenty of restaurant options nearby and it's well connected by public transport. Kowloon also has the benefit of being home to the main museums and theatres and having the best views of the harbour. All of this means hotels here are on the more expensive end of the scale, and that the areas tend to be crowded.
If you're travelling to Hong Kong on a budget, the best area to stay would be in Tsim Sha Tsui on the southern tip of the Kowloon Peninsula. You'll find the most modern and luxurious hotels located here too, and rooms with views overlooking Victoria Harbour.
