Choosing hotels can be daunting task! We can be scratching our heads all day long on the computer screen and we cannot figure out which one can we choose! Thousand and thousand of hotels are located in Hong Kong. Some are scams too! This situation certainly a major concern for backpackers. Of course, there are heaps hotels in Hong Kong. You will say what on earth do I need to figure this out for long? My work life is stressful (well sometimes we do have fun at work) and I just simply want a break from work. We gotta getaway and enjoy ourselves by a straight forward travel plan. Love life! Here we go! I hope that the information provided below helps you relief some stress or just give you some ideas how to get ahead of your research. For staying, I would recommend hotels next to Victoria Harbour which gains you an advantage on fare saving and fast run to Central and Wan Chai. A hotel close to MTR stations can get you literally everywhere in no time. A hotel close to The Peak Tram is located very close to the tram stop in Central and it is situated very close to nearly every tourist spots in Central.

Scams

Please be aware that some hotels and hostels in Hong Kong do provide reasonable price for your stay. However, there are always some catch as scam businesses has been growing recently in Hong Kong. Check out the website of The Office of The Licensing Authority for more information to protect your interest.

Free Bus Connection

As far as I know, there are two free bus services happening in Hong Kong. When you are staying in some hotels, check out if they co-operate with MTR where they offer free bus service connecting their hotels to Hong Kong International Airport! In the airport, you will find a reception desk at the arrival hall. In case you cannot locate the reception desk, find airport staff members for help. Complimentary Airport Express Shuttle Bus Service is offered by MTR traveling in between Hong Kong International Airport and some hotels. Check out their website and find out more!

What's more, Disneyland offer a complementary bus service traveling in bewteen Disneyland and its hotels. Check out their website and find out more! The location of the bus stop is a bit tricky. When you walk out Disneyland MTR Station, a wide path will lead you either to Disneyland pier, Disneyland entrance or bus terminus. Turn left which is heading to the direction opposite to the pier. Keep walking and you will see the bus station ahead. If no staff member is there, a customer service center is around so you won't get lost.

Taxi Service

Taxi service in Hong Kong mainly have three branches. There are many taxi services in Hong Kong. Red Taxi (mainly traveling between Kowloon and Hong Kong Island), Green Taxi (mainly travel between New Territories and Kowloon) and Blue Taxi (only travel in Outlying Islands). Please jump on board "Protecting Our Interest When Taking a Taxi In Hong Kong", which is written by me, for more information.

Harbour Crossing

When you wanna travel between Hong Kong Island and Nine Dragon (Kowloon), you may take a ferry ride. A ferry ride is the only option when you travel between Hong Kong Island and Outlying Islands. The ferry pier is located in Central.
