Where to stay in Hong Kong

Head to Tsim Sha Tsui for the main tourist section of Hong Kong, where it's easy to find reasonably priced accommodations to suit your particular requirements, with more expensive hotels closer to the water and side streets offering budget hostels. You can also consider Hong Kong Island, which offers easy links to the mainland via its ferry and train lines. Chain hotels sit in the northern section of the island, where luxury and budget options remain available.

  • Great little gem, with an excellent view. The real draw here is the currency "museum" on the 55th floor, which contains a wealth of information. Did I mention it is all free?
  • Really enjoy being at the currency museum on the 55th floor. The view is pretty good and the exhibitions were engaging. For example, did you know that the HKD was and is still is pegged to the USD?
  • Great view from the 55th floor. A free museum charting the use of money in HK. Good for people interested in economics and finance. You need an official I'd to get in, e.g. A passport
  • The Information Centre is a must visit. Also perfect for sweeping views of HK Island.
