  • Hotel in Kowloon

    by travelnewfie Online Now Dec 21, 2014 at 7:09 PM

    Myself and husband, ages 55, are looking for a hotel around a 3 star in American standard. What is important to us is that it is close to an MTR connector. We would like a place for 4 nights that is clean, safe, and a good location. Don't care if it is small and don't want a party place, We are also non-smokers. We plan on having a busy few days seeing a few of the following: Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade , Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery (Man Fat Sze) , Victoria Peak (The Peak), Big Buddha, Lantau Island, Chi Lin Nunnery, Hong Kong Skyline, 10,000 buddha monastery, orchestra of music. Any suggestions for a hotel for two first-timers in Hong Kong?

    I will be in HK for a month (mid-June - mid-July) and am trying to have a few questions answered (I will be in City University housing).

    1. Is it easy to obtain an inexpensive smart phone with plan once in HK? Alternatively, could I bring a smart phone and get a sim card for it in HK?

    2. Are there wireless connections available in coffee shops, etc? How hard is it to be on the grid?

    3. What is the cheapest way to get around? Is there an MTR pass?

    Hi guys,

    Can anyone help me with this?
    I will be staying in Regal Oriental Hotel when I visit Hong Kong in December and I need to check-in at 6am and check-out at 5am, but the hotel's check-in and check-out timings are 2pm and 12pm respectively. However, it did state on its website that there's express check-in and check-out counters. Does anyone know how it works and what I have to do? Also, are there any additional charges? Thank you so much for your help!!

  • Hong Kong on May 2012

    by thinkingrich331 Online Now Mar 20, 2012 at 3:11 AM

    My Family and I are scheduled to go to Macau-HK this coming May. We arrive at Macau Airport, stay overnight in Macau, then stay in HK for 4 nights and on our last day, go back again to Macau for our flight back home. I wonder where it will be best to book a hotel, considering the following planned itinerary:

    1st Night - Macau
    1st Day - A.M. Macau
    P.M. Nathan Road/Kowloon Side
    2nd Day- Causeway Bay/Victoria Peak
    3rd Day-Disneyland
    4th Day-Ocean Park
    5th Day-A.M. Shop for souvenir and give aways
    P.M. Back to Macau for flight

    I wonder if I can really do this, come from Macau, stay in HK for 4 nights, then back to Macau for my flight back home. Where is the best place to stay, Kowloon side or HK side. On my 2nd day, what is the best thing to do or where is the best place to go? Would I be right to think that it will be cheaper for us, in terms of transportation costs, to stay in HongKong side, Lantau or wanchai area since most of the places I wish to see are in those area and not in Kowloon side?

    I plan to see night markets, tourists spots and shopping places in HK.

    Thanks much!

    silly billy - how do i get from plane to pub ??

    by peterseaford Online Now Jul 23, 2011 at 9:19 PM

    asked everything EXCEPT How Do I Get To Nathan Hotel 378 Nathan Road Kowloon from the Hong Kong Airport at 6am in the morning of 5 August and how do i get back to the airport at 5pm on 7th August.

    Not penney pincher but would love to see as much as we can of bothe people and places.

    Suppose taxi is always available but it may not be what you suggest and we would really value your suggestions.

    was told that there was a bus but we have luggage and would not loke to carry that far - have a wife as well.

    Seems that Nathan Hotel as no bus service but suggest Kowloon Station and I cannot find that.

    Can find Jordan but that looks a good 10 minute walk from the hotel even without luggage.

    please let us have what you have discovered as best.

    kindest regards

    want to enjoy all of Kowloon.

    by peterseaford Online Now Jul 12, 2011 at 3:54 AM

    only two days for a start then seven days and we want to enjoy all of Kowloon , Hong Kong , Shenzhen and Macow,

    We are staying at the Nathan and have already meet a fabulous travel agent Edith and feel we are in good hands.

    I would like to go to Mass at the Rosary Church and supose that on Friday night a cab is the way to fly.

    Was told that the Rickshaw Bus tour is well worth it as is te Red bus tour by day and night.

    I really need to replace a blazer that i have lost - just unlined but part of me and i was just hoping that there may be a place in Kowloon near the Nathan that may be worth a try.

    the wife and I are aged pensioners but really like to enjoy ourselves . I have toured China and loved everything about her and hope that I will do the same next year.

    Any advise you can offer would really be valued

    kind regards

    Guide needed

    Hello everyone

    We are heading over to HK from Oct 4th to the 15th and would be very interested in finding a guide. We are not into organised tourist travel, we like to get out and about and find out about the place we are staying and see villages and meet the real people.

    We don't travel many miles to shop,shop,shop although we do a little shopping to take home. We did try this in KL but ended up with someone who treated us like a business deal. We are easy to get along with and don't mind paying for a good guide. We take care of anyone who takes care of us equally.

    If you know of anyone who would be interested we would really appreciate it.

    I am seeking some advice regarding accommodation; my partner and I are travelling to Hong Kong from Australia in November for leisure/ sightseeing and shopping.
    I have been trying to work out where we are going to stay however I am having some difficulty with the different areas/which is better, etc.
    So far I have gathered that we want to stay in Kowloon (Mongkok or Tsim Sha Tsui).
    I'd like to know if anyone has stayed at The Royal Plaza and whether they can comment on the location/property. I have chosen this property as I have been able to find a fantastic Internet price.
    I am also open to recommendations and advice!
