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.

  • We were surprised to find such a large mosque in central Kowloon during our stroll along Nathan road. It was busy with devotees conducting or finishing evening prayers. We managed to take a peek at its interior which reveal a prayer hall. We learnt that the existing structure was a replacement of the original built as early as 1896. We did not take any photos of the interior and people out of respect.
  • Who would have thought there's a vibrant Islamic community in within HK's busiest district? Well this mosque tells a lot.
  • This has been my first visit to ANY mosque at all. I was afraid to enter there - maybe they're bloodthirsty people?? (I thought to myself). BUt reality turned out to be completely different - all Muslims there were very nice, open hearted people. Answered ALL my question - also those about their "naughty behaviour" in Europe, especially Germany and France. I'm glad that I came here. Thx.
  • Good Reciter Imams, All are friendly and grateful people
  • The largest mosque in Hong Kong. It's certainly a place to visit if you're a Muslim and even if you aren't, you are more than welcome to come inside and admire the architecture. It's a interesting contrast in the concrete jungle. They have events for people to come in and learn about Islam too. Very spacious and have daily 5 times prayers.
