No name-brand toiletries, which a hotel of this level usually offers
Located in the heart of the popular tourist area Tsim Sha Tsui, the 495-room Langham Hotel is a luxury property and a shopper's paradise -- it's close to designer stores like Fendi and Louis Vuitton, and also near the Langham Place Shopping Mall. The hotel itself fits right in to its high-end surroundings. The gorgeous European-style lobby features high, gilded ceilings with huge crystal chandeliers, and the rooms have fancy golden fixtures in the bathrooms and modern amenities like iPod docks, flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi. Although there are plenty of dining options right outside the hotel, The Langham does have several of its own restaurants, including The Bostonian, an American-style lounge with a raw bar, and the Michelin-starred Tang Court. After a day of shopping or sightseeing, guests can head to the rooftop pool and Jacuzzi, sweat it out in the very well-equipped fitness center, or relax in The Langham Club, a trendy lounge with a DVD library, a modern business center, and buffet-style kitchen stocked with snacks.
In the shopping paradise of Tsim Sha Tsui, and close to the metro and ferry
The Langham Hong Kong is located in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui on the Kowloon Peninsula, one of the liveliest and most popular areas of the city, with high-end shopping and entertainment. It's also conveniently close to public transportation, both the ferry service and MTR (metro).
Trekking through Hong Kong is truly a feast for the senses. Much like Times Square and the blinking neon lights of the Las Vegas Strip, Hong Kong could at first be a sensory overload, but areas outside the statuesque skyscrapers showcase the true charm and beauty of the city.
After exploring the city's tightly-packed streets and navigating the ever-present stream of traffic, one great place to escape is The Peak, Hong Kong's most popular attraction. Visitors arrive at The Peak via the Peak Tram, which rises 1,300 feat above sea level to provide outrageous views of the city. Once at the top, The Peak Tower offers shopping and dining, and The Sky Gallery displays artwork by local Hong Kong artists.
Another way to take in the sights of Hong Kong is to ride the Star Ferry across Victoria Harbour, one of the world's busiest harbors. It's an essential part of local commuter life, but also an important aspect of the city's tourism. Once at Victoria Harbour's waterfront, visitors can seek the Avenue of the Stars -- Hong Kong's version of Hollywood's Walk of Fame. Avenue of the Stars is accompanied by the Symphony of the Stars, a sound and light show that pays tribute to the city's film industry. Experience thrill rides at Ocean Park Theme Park, or get lost in the magic at Hong Kong Disneyland, which incorporates the different lands of Disney World's Magic Kingdom.
Should shopping or sightseeing become tiresome, Hong Kong has several beaches for quiet relaxation outside the city.
