Travel

There are several ways to The Mira Hong Kong from the Hong Kong International Airport.

Airport Express
Airport Express Link is by far the fastest option to get into the city. Upon arrival, take the Airport Express Train to Kowloon Station (23 minutes), then jump into a cab right outside the platform. You will reach us within five to ten minutes, depending on the traffic.

MTR
Just a 3 minute walking distance along Nathan Road, we are right at the corner of Kimberley Road. Make sure you take Exit B1 at the Tsim Sha Tsui Station of the MTR.

Taxi
A taxi ride from the Airport should take approximately 45 minutes, depending on the traffic. Corner of Nathan Road and Kimberley Road is a popular address and majority of the drivers speak English, but we recommend that you download the location map on your mobile device, or print it out for your convenience.

Discover Hong Kong

These are the spots at Hong Kong that you cannot miss.

The information has been provided by the HKTB and you can find futher information in their website.

Also, find information and practical tips so that you feel home when you arrive to Hong Kong regarding food / dine, trip planning, transportation and weather, prior your arrival, here.

The Peak

If there is only one thing you can do in Hong Kong, go to The Peak. If you have many things to do here, still go to The Peak. The highest point on Hong Kong Island, this has been the city’s most exclusive neighbourhood since colonial times — back then it was the cooler air that attracted the rich and famous; in the post air-conditioning era, the views of one of the world’s most spectacular cityscapes keep them coming.

Ladies' Market

With over 100 stalls of bargain clothing, accessories and souvenirs, the Ladies’ Market on Tung Choi Street provides a one-kilometre stretch on which to practise your haggling skills. It gets its name from the huge amount of clothing and accessories on sale for women of all ages; however, with watches, cosmetics, bags, home furnishings, CDs and trinkets also up for grabs, you don’t need to be just in the market for a pair of nylon stockings to find something within its crowded aisles.

Sai Kung Seafood Street

Sai Kung is known as ‘Hong Kong’s back garden’ because of the beautiful hiking trails and beaches in this area. The village of Sai Kung is also noted locally for its seafood restaurants, many of which congregate on the seafront, known as ‘Seafood Street’.

These laid-back eateries are a great way to recover from a day walking the hills, though the freshness of the seafood and the charm of Sai Kung village are enough to justify coming here to eat without hiking the hills.

Lan Kwai Fong

Lan Kwai Fong is one of Hong Kong’s most popular nightlife hot spots and home to over 90 restaurants and bars. The atmosphere ranges from stylish wine pairings to raucous jelly shots and the food on offer is as diverse as the clientele.

Thanks to Hong Kong’s dominance in Asian cinema, this centre of late-night revelry is so renowned that its official street sign is more photographed than many of the celebrities who haunt its clubs. Mostly, the area is crowded with people from the surrounding offices of Central, eager to shake off the working day or week. Get in the thick of it with a street side perch, or watch the antics on the road below from one of the upper floors.

Lei Yue Mun

The fishing village of Lei Yue Mun is a slice of old Hong Kong alive and well in the modern metropolis. About 150 years ago, this village was dominated by fishing, farming and mining. From the 1960s, it began to gain a reputation as a good spot for alfresco seafood dining. The ordering method is quite unusual: first you buy your fish from a tank in a market stall; then you take it to one of the nearby restaurants, which will prepare it for a fee. Overall, the price is reasonable and the seafood is very fresh. While experience the city’s living culture first-hand, drop by the Hong Kong Jockey Club’s Lei Yue Mun Plus, an abandoned school that has been converted into educational, heritage and arts centre where you learn more about its culture and history.
