Hong Kong is one of Asia’s most fascinating cities, combining East and West, traditional and modern, to create a vibrant, unique melting pot. On the north side of Victoria Harbour, directly across from the city centre, Kowloon hotels are ready to deliver a perfectly sized bite of Hong Kong’s cultural mix.
Things to Do in Kowloon
Some of Hong Kong’s most popular attractions are an easy trip from Kowloon accommodation. Check out Wong Tai Sin, a technicolour temple in the northeast neighbourhood of Chuk Un. Say a prayer to the god of immortality, but be careful what you ask for—the temple claims to “make every wish come true upon request.”
Bringing the whole family? Hotels near Hong Kong Disneyland® are a great way to see the sights and keep the kiddos entertained. Cruise along the Jungle River, swing from the trees like Tarzan or enjoy life’s ups and downs on a roller coaster. Just 20 km east of Kowloon, it also makes a great day trip to give your holiday a fairytale ending.
Getting To & Around Kowloon
Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) is the area’s major hub for international flights. Once you’ve landed, hop on the Airport Express train and you’ll be at Kowloon Station in no time—it’s even closer than downtown! Use the MTR subway to get to your Kowloon hotel, or hail a cab. Both are great ways to get around; the subway and bus systems are extensive, and taxis in Hong Kong are convenient and cheap.
