The Best Hotels in Hong Kong

The StarTripper Journal presents the best places to stay in Hong Kong, both international luxury and boutique choices.

Our Team to Hong Kong are two professional travelers living in Thailand.

Welcome to Hong Kong, a sensory feast. You may sway along on a historic double-decker tram, cheering with the hordes at the city-centre horse races, or simply gazing out at the glorious harbour.

Hong Kong is one of the world's top culinary capitals, the city that worships the God of Cookery has many a demon in the kitchen, whether the deliciousness in the pot is Cantonese, Sichuanese, Japanese or French.

Hong Kong is shopping - variety of products in Hong Kong’s shops is dizzying. Every budget, need and whim is catered for in 'can do' spirit by a similarly impressive assortment of venues – glitzy malls where the moneyed shop, chic side-street boutiques and vintage dens where fashionistas find their gems, nerdy gadget bazaars, and a mix of markets where you can haggle to your heart’s content.

Admiralty, Central and SoHo - where the rich, the famous and the star-struck flash their plastic, a stunning competition of glittering skyscrapers, the city’s financial district and a major concentration of luxury goods and high-fashion.

Causeway Bay is a true microcosm of Hong Kong’s shopping scene, with both up-market fashion, mid-price and luxury goods and more affordable youth fashion boutiques.

Kowloon East and Kowloon West - a more residential world where Hong Kong’s residents are just as obsessed with purchasing as the city’s visitors - an interesting variety of shopping malls that carry both international and local brands and foods, as well as state-of the-art entertainment facilities.

Nightshoppers have their own mall, "apm" - its doors are kept open into the wee hours. This after-dark shopping hub houses 170 retail outlets which close at midnight, while restaurants stay open until 2am and entertainment spots carry on until dawn.

The city has no sales tax, so prices are generally very attractive. Do your shopping, have a wonderful meal at one of the gourmet restaurants or just relax at a wonderful hotel, sipping a glass of champagne as night fall on over Victoria Harbour.

Currency is Hong Kong Dollar (HKD).
