  • Colon is not like Hong Kong Station. It's almost universally built with skyscrapers. In the area there are many shopping centres and offices, shops and cafes. Life in the streets do not die even at night. We had a chance to go back to the hotel after midnight, and people around at least today.

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.
