One of the great city destinations. Exciting with a pace of life that has two speeds, fast and faster! Essentially the city is split in two, separated by the harbour. You have either Kowloon side or Hong Kong island, with good connections linking the two, either by Star Ferry or by the highly impressive MTR subway Link. Travel time from UK approximately 12 hours.
Hong Kong is without doubt one of the most charismatic cities, in our view an absolute must on any Far East touring holiday. Superb shopping, either in the upscale malls or the more authentic street markets. Equally good sightseeing, with a visit to one of the many small islands offering a total contrast – but try to avoid weekends or public holidays. Visit the Peak for super views. Fantastic variety of cuisine.
Harbour Grand Hong Kong is located at North Point, just a short walk or one stop on the efficient MTR subway from popular Causeway Bay, plus the hotel operate a regular shuttle to the main shopping area.
An imposing building accommodating 828 rooms and suites, all with harbour view with the deluxe grade offering uniquely both Hong Kong AND Kowloon vistas.
The InterContinental Hong Kong has a great location with impressive views from many of the rooms, and especially the restaurants and bars. It is luxurious but in a less stuffy way than some of the hotels in the central financial district.
Lan Kwai Fong Hotel is something very different. Traditional, in both the interior design style and interesting totally authentic location with its busy narrow lanes and alleys. You definitely feel in you staying in the ‘real’ Hong Kong, yet the up-scale shopping of Central District & the Covent Garden style Lan Kwai Fong and Soho entertainment areas are just a short walk away.
Mandarin Oriental is the flagship property of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group. Elegant and luxurious, award winning for its subtle quality. Located in the prestigious Central District on Hong Kong Island, the Star Ferry is a few minutes’ walk away. The Airport is 50 minutes.
The Peninsula Hong Kong Known more fondly as ‘The Pen’, is an institution within the region. Traditional and colonial, a real sense of history, plus a super location on the heart of Kowloon, just a few minutes walk from the Star Ferry.
Located at prestigious Pacific Place on Hong Kong Island, occupying the top twelve floors of a fifty story skyscraper. A new style of hotel – luxurious, chic, contemporary and minimalist, with the emphasis on space, light, and individual service.
The Upper House Hong Kong has just 117 junior suites, with huge bedrooms and equally impressive bathrooms, all with either Peak or Harbour view.
