    Default Hong Kong Trip in Feb 2011

    Hi all,

    I will be making my way to Hong Kong for the marathon next Feb. Was thinking of staying in Kowloon and shooting a bit during this trip.

    Any recommendations for place to stay in Kowloon? I was thinking of somewhere near Tsim Tsa Tsui or Jordan, if there is a boutique hotel/studio apartment, kindly recommend..

    Budget around SGD$150-$200/(HKD$700-$900) for a room (2 pax) a night.

    Also, was wondering any places I can take interesting shots of this city?

    thanks...............!!!

    Hey,

    you can try cityview, it is a very nice clean hotel and the hotel is very near one of the MRT station, i think it is yau ma tei or something? try going to the lamut island, simply fantastic cable car ride with awesome view.

    cheers.

    You should go up to THE PEAK, the night scenery is magnificent. You might want to bring along your tripod. Up at the peak, you can visit the wax museum and take pictures with many Stars (i dont mean the stars on the sky)

    You can check out Novotel Nathan road, it's really convenient and about 5 minutes walk to Jordan MTR station Also there are loads of shops just across, where you'll get the roadside stalls. If you're intending to stay in Macau, you can consider Sofitel Ponte 16. It's beautiful and rather cheap

    i'm going in March'11.
    from what i hv researched so far, hotels at Mongkok area are expensive.
    if u would not mind a bit of travelling, Holiday Inn Express Causeway bay seems good.
    if not Metropark hotel Mongkok seems ok, it's a stop further away from Mongkok, prince Edward stop i think...
