Further West, from parts of Austin Road, there is a zone of construction sites with futuristic skyscrapers under construction. But the highlight of Kowloon City are shops. We are both big stores both outlets of the most famous brands of clothes and jewellery in the world. On Saturday afternoon it fills up to capacity by people walking.

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.
