Chung King Mansion, Hong Kong

Categories: Gift & Specialty Shops, Shopping
Inspirock Rating:
2.2/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web
Popularly known by backpackers as the cheapest accommodation in Hong Kong, Chung King Mansion also houses a mixture of restaurants, clothing shops, and foreign exchange counters. Shop in any of the three malls in the mansion for bargain prices, but the main arcade on the ground floor is the easiest to reach and browse. If you decide to sleep here, expect tiny rooms and hard beds with bathrooms shared by the whole floor. Rooms may or may not have air conditioning. Do not be surprised if police randomly check your identity for the cause of reducing drug-trafficking.

  • 重慶大樓是尖沙咀地區的著名建築物,大廈內宛如小型的聯合國,有各色人種聚集,也有食肆、賓館、找換店等。通常我只去這裡的找換店換錢,因為匯率較划算,但要多比較幾家,以及因為出入混雜,要留意自身的財物。 
  • Moneychangers on the first floor were all business. Is that a good rate compared to other areas of. But everyone you know is doesn't rate the two stores near the entrance. There is a surprisingly good tends to go in the back, but please see for yourself. Found no differences, certainly compared to the other two foreign rate is good and well, but all the way over time and transportation costs go up. Was also from an acquaintance in Hong Kong S.A.R. strongly told to be wary of travelling a lot so everyone please note 10 minutes.

  • I have a lot of cheap. You can buy cheaper than convenience stores as well as water. Suitable for travel during peak periods and long waiting for an elevator, no time.

  • A dingey, dirty, down at heel building with a huge selection of small shops, hostels and restaurants. It has a old world character in stark contrast to the mega brand hotels and shops nearby. If you're travelling and looking for interesting locations, places like this are what it's all about. Well worth a visit for a curry, and we recommend the Khyber Club.
  • It is an underrated place and people do not prefer to enter here (especially after 7pm) because it is a dark and 'shady' area with a lot of strangers and it is quite unsafe. Well, if do venture alone, yes do not go after 7pm. But, if you go in a group it's totally fine! Chungking Mansions is a cultural melting pot, it has a diverse range of Indian, Nepali and Pakistani snacks for a great bargain! This is also only one of the few places you can bargain in Hong Kong h
  • A huge mall consisting of stores and lodging guest houses, also an intersecting places in Hong Kong. The area over here was always crowded and filled with locals as well as foreigners that trying to earn a living. Personally, I had experience for staying in the guest house for 7 days, with nothing terrible had happened, however the doubts regarding its safety still remains in my mind. Wouldn't recommend this place for families who wished to have a comfortable stay; for backpackers with intention to save cost, could have consider the place.
  • An interting place to go to as a tourist or local. I couldn't recommend any of the hotels here as they are just terrible. The selection of curry in this building is fast and tasty. They also have the best rate for currency exchange here. Other perks are that you don't need to queue, possible to exchange a large amount, no need to book the cash a few days in advanced like some banks.
  • Convenient location in TST. Indian groceries hub, Indian food and lots of hostels, services apartments, guest houses are there inside this building and the best place for currency exchange in HK apart from banks. Lift / elevators are worst because of the business and rush of the people all the time. During the pick hours you need to wait a lot to use the lift is a biggest waste of time here. Lifts are very small and users are more most of the time.
