"The Heart of Kowloon" Nathan Road Tip by kentishgirl

Nathan Road, Hong Kong: 55 reviews and 82 photos

Because we were backpacking we found that the majority of the cheap accommodations were located in Kowloon. This is still a major part of Hong Kong so don't be put off. In fact I prefered to be in Kowloon - at night it's really busy, whereas Hong Kong Island is busy during the day because it is essentially the financial district, but not so much at night.

In Kowloon you will find noisy, busy streets, markets of all kinds, cheap shops, cheap accommodation, street food and plenty going on all of the time.

To get to HK Island is easy - you can take the underground of the ferry - see my transport tips for that info.
