Welcome to another post of helping a reader travel!
This weekly post is to help readers get a ton of travel advice from thousand of Deals We Like blog readers. Thus far, we’ve been able to help other readers travel to a slew of domestic and international destinations. Check out recent destinations and comment on suggestions here.
So this weeks travel destination includes Hong Kong. I received the following email from reader Lauren:
“I am going to Hong Kong this year and would love advice from your readers. I am looking to use points, so what hotel would you suggest? Should I stay in Hong Kong Island or Kowloon? Also, any suggested restaurants, including some authentic establishments? What are the top things to see, and what is the minimum time needed?
I was actually in Hong Kong 2 and a half years ago and loved it! It was part of my 18 day trip that included Thailand as well. I stayed at the Renaissance in Hong Kong Island and thought the location was great. It was right next to the ferry to Kowloon. When I stayed though it was a category 5 hotel and I was able to use some free night certificates. Unfortunately that hotel is now a category 7! I was there for three days and thought that was the minimum amount of time needed. One day we took the ferry to Macau which was a neat experience. While there are massive casinos there, I was more intrigued by the Portuguese section. We also went to Victoria Peak and Big Buddah. A big time is to take the train from the airport – it is much cheaper than taking a taxi and very easy!
If you’ve ever been to Hong Kong, let’s help out reader Lauren and I am sure many other interested readers!
