Hotel near HKG airport for stopover
« Reply #91 on: December 07, 2011, 11:41:03 AM »
Looking for an affordable, decent hotel near the airport for a 10 hour stopover in HKG. 

Alternatively, can anyone suggest a "tour" of HKG that can be accomplished in that time?

Thanx.

Was there this past weekend and every single hotel was full. The Chinese descend on HKG en mass to shop because there are lots of sales. Be prepared for long lines everywhere.

That is true. Chinese people from Mainland China usually go to HK for Christmas Shopping (taxes are waived in HK while sales tax in mainland is very high). That totally explains the hotel availability.  My friend told me tourists usually focus on stores in Kowloon, HK island would be fine.........now it seems everywhere is full....lol
