- About Us
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 M (married), S (single), or an MS, (married/single) next to each hotel.

Where2Stay – the Masterpieces
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!
