3. The New Territories

As the population of the city increases there are other regions that are building up into the areas of the new territories. It has high tower buildings which seem to pop up overnight, and some village have been the stretch for miles.

Many villages in the new territories are connected with the Kowloon area and Hong Kong Island via mass transit system, staying where we can get a refreshing day.

4. Sai Ying Pun

After the most luxurious place Kowloon there is another place named Sai Ying Pun which is the great place to find you a comfortable and luxurious life.

It is located in the western district in northern western area of the Hong Kong Island and it is considered as the oldest areas of the Hong Kong city. It is a home to a large number of hotels, restaurants, cafes, market stalls. This place is very easy to get from the airport by bus.

Some people find this place a bit boring because instead of having many restaurants we need to crave for the food, shops and things to look at. Also, there is no charm in the place as the causeway bay and wan chai places.

5. Outlying Islands

A wide-range of the South China Sea is developed from the 235 Islands of the Hong Kong city. In general, all the Islands are developing as the extensions of the Hong Kong’s city, but still, there are many Islands that are uninhabited and some are populated with the activity of the fishing.

The famous resorts in Hong Kong are Disney resort, Ngong Ping 360 centers. Other than these islands as major attractions of Hong Kong there are still local and Islands with the skyline view.

There are two beautiful Islands named as Peng Chau and Lamma Island which are the best option for the visitor which are deciding to stay in outlying Islands. These are the Islands that are removed from the list of the tourist guide and have become the beaten track for most of the westerners.

Peng Chau and Lamma Island also can be considered as the best place to stay in Hong Kong because it is famous for the local seafood restaurants and their gorgeous natural beauty of beaches which are easily accessible from the city. Public can reach and visit each and every smaller Islands via a boat cruise.

These were the list of the 5 best places to stay in Hong Kong. There are still many places that can be considered as the best place to stay in Hong Kong but the decision to the best place is taken by looking on the requirements and the purpose for which you are visiting the Hong Kong city.

According to me the best place to stay in Hong Kong is considered as the Hong Kong Island. Because this place is famous for the multiple purposes for example business, corporate, shopping and even famous restaurants and hotels are available here.

This place has enough of the public transportation facilities for travelling from one place to another and so I consider this place as the best place to stay Hong Kong.
