Kowloon Hotels

The sprawling neon-lit cityscape of Kowloon hides all manner of culinary and cultural delights along its twisty-turny, vibrant streets. The ever bustling city is one of the most densely populated spaces in the world, and there's a wealth of succulent street food and off the beaten track restaurants to discover. The city is also famous for its sweeping views of Hong Kong, and spectacular waterfront where ferries bob up and down in the water, not to mention the world-class shopping available at the glitzy glass-roofed luxury malls.

Things to see

First time visitors to the city should pay at least one visit to the Kowloon waterfront. The views of the shimmering glass towers of Hong Kong and the inland bay area make the perfect backdrop for a relaxing walk. The area is without doubt at its best by night, where the glittering lights of the city make for some truly stunning views, and you can also catch the colorful symphony of light at 8pm every evening and see the sky and skyscrapers lit by purple, blue, red and yellow beams. Museum fans, especially science and technology enthusiasts, will be right at home here too. There's a number of fascinating sights to see and discover at the Hong Kong Science Museum, and the kids in particular are sure to enjoy a visit here. If you're looking for some of the local history and culture, then the bright and bold colors of the Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple are a must see.

Hotels in Kowloon

Kowloon is brimming with both discount pads and luxury hotels alike, and as a result there's something for everyone. Kowloon hotels range from basic, cozy guesthouses, to the futuristic heights of high rise luxury at top end establishments. Wherever you choose to stay though, you'll generally find you can enjoy a hearty breakfast in the morning, and friendly staff eager to give you the lowdown on the best places to visit. If you're after an indulgent splurge, then plenty of hotels in Kowloon offer full service spas where you can be slathered in a rich deep mud wrap and sparkling pools to splash about in.

Where to stay

If you're back packing, or simply staying on a budget, then Jordan or Mong Kok, a short distance inland from the main harbor area, are a great choice. These areas have plenty of cheap guesthouses to choose from, and you'll still be close to the bustle of the main city. If you're looking for pure luxury and convenience, on the other hand, then finding some accommodation in the Tsim Sha Tsui district near the waterfront is bound to please, as you can enjoy some excellent views, and quick access to a number of nearby attractions. Hung Hom is also short distance from the buzz of the city and harbor.

How to get to Kowloon

The most direct way to reach Kowloon is by air, traveling to Hong Kong International airport. From here, you can hop on the airport express train service, which takes 20 minutes to reach the Kowloon terminal. Alternatively, a ferry trip can be a pleasant way to take in the futuristic skyline and cross the harbor. It's great value for money too. Taking a bus from the airport is also possible, and if you're on an extended break, then taking a cruise liner is certainly one of the most stylish ways to arrive. Public transport is frequent and varied in Kowloon, so getting around is simple.
