Hong Kong Travel

Asia, Travel




Hong Kong – completely exotic & foreign, yet oddly familiar. Jaw dropping skyline, skyscrapers next to temples, squalid alleys with snakes for sale next to luxurious hotels. The fourth most crowded place on Earth. More cell phones than people. How do you choose among 60,000 rooms? Do you stay on Hong Kong Island or Kowloon? First stop – where to stay.

Does being married or single influence Where2Stay? Do you want your hotel hip & modern or do you prefer a quiet and romantic hotel?  Sometimes you might want to “marry” the two. You will see an (married), S (single), or an MS, (married/single) next to each hotel.


 Where2Stay – Hong Kong Island

The Upper House– A Wear Girls  favorite. Centrally located above Pacific Place retail complex is this oasis of personalized service. A small (117) room boutique hotel, where suites start at a whopping 730 sq. ft, bathrooms take up 350 of it!  Espresso makers, free snacks & WiFi, Cafe Grey, and a private lawn/garden  to unwind. Perfect! (M)

Mandarin Oriental – for business or pleasure this 430 room hotel located in Central is “central” to everything. Fab restaurants, cocktail lounges, meeting rooms & great rooms. Perfect service. As a  Mandarin always is. (MS)

J Plus Boutique Hotel – Phillipe Stark has come to Hong Kong. A hip hotel/apartment offers comfort & practicality. Located in Causeway Bay combines cutting edge location w/ a local atmosphere. Feel as if you are living in Hong Kong.  (S)



One of the best infinity pool views !                    #1 hottest bathroom – The Peninsula… so what if it’s the men’s room?

Where2Stay – Kowloon

Intercontinental –  one of the top hotels in the world w/ views to match. Splurge on a Victoria Harbour or HK Island view. All rooms come with private butlers. Bring your swimsuit. The infinity pool juts over the harbour. (MS)

Where2Stay – the Masterpieces

Impossible to forget – memorable to stay. The Peninsula, Island Shangri – La & Kowloon Shangri La, Four Seasons & The Grand Hyatt



Hong Kong IS about food. Here’s a few…Dim Sum – Maxims Palace City Hall, Lin Heung Tea House or Luk Yu. Visit One Peking Road in Kowloon to view the nightly fireworks from Aqua (Italian) or Hutong. Ask for a window table. Try Yung Kee or Fook Lam Moon for traditional Cantonese cooking. Splurge at Lung King Heen, the three star Michelin at the Four Seasons. End your night at Felix at the Peninsula.




Where2Shop – Hong Kong Island IS all about shopping and malls. Ready, set … Causeway Bay: Times Square Mall is the Olympics of shopping. Central: the tourist hub is home to every high end designer. If you want the latest from Paris & London, visit the Landmark Mall. Browse along Hollywood Boulevard & Cat St. to SoHo  for art galleries, antique shops and boutiques. It becomes party central at night. Head to Sheung Wan for street markets. Ferry to Kowloon for the Temple Street night market, a must for the knockoff  hunter. Visit Canton Road for the largest Louis Vuitton store outside of Paris. Shanghai Tang,of course and never forget Maylin and Ashneil for custom bags at great prices. We need a drink and more money!



Be a tourist…Cross the harbour on Star Ferry, stroll Stanley Market, don’t miss the hair raising vertical Peak Tram to Victoria Peak, take a Junk boat ride, ride the Central mid level escalators, take a day trip to Macau (ferries leave every 15 min) ride the Ngong Ping Cable Car to view the Buddha on Lantua Island, stroll Hollywood  Road & stop at Man Ho Temple. And we haven’t started shopping yet!



Even the Wear Girls need a Shopping Break
