Causeway Bay    Click here for pictures

Causeway Bay is a mixture of business and residential so the restaurants in this district will be packed with office workers. 

Hotels to stay:

No matter you are on a business trip or for leisure, Causeway Bay is a great place to stay

  • Excelsior Hotel: The Excelsior Hotel is one major hotel.  It is right in the centre of  Causeway Bay, adjacent to all major shopping centres and it has a nice view of the Victoria Harbor.  The coffee shop serves very good lunch and dinner buffet and is very popular with the locals.
  • Park Lane Hotel: Park Lane Hotel is another big and conveniently located hotel.  It's next to shopping arcades like Windsor House and Hang Lung Centre and is opposite to the Victoria Park.  Again, their international lunch and dinner buffet are very popular with the locals.  Do book a table if you plan to eat in the hotel.
  • Rosedale Hotel: The Rosedale Hotel is located on the not-so-busy side of the Victoria Park so you don't feel like staying in the middle of shopping arcades. This hotel is not as famous as the Excelsior Hotel and so it is cheaper.
  • Charterhouse Hotel: Another place much cheaper is the Charterhouse Hotel.  Looks clean but it is only 4 star at best and in a bit of a crowded city streets.
  • Regal Hotel HK: There are 5 different Regal Hotels in HK so make sure you book the right one and go to the right one.  It's two streets away from the centre of Causeway bay and is surrounded by commercial buildings.  Great if you are on a business trip and the office is nearby.  The buffet has a lot less choice than the Excelsior Hotel or Park Lane Hotel though.


You can find Japanese department stores like Sogo and many more shops here.  Times Square, brand name shops, fashion in town and endless shops are all within walking distance.

Book shops:

  • "Page One" on the 9th floor of Times Square.
  • "Dymocks" at Windsor House
  • "Commercial Press" at Yee Wo Street. This book shop sells a lot more Chinese books compare to the other two.  But it has good source of maps especially if you are looking for maps of China.


Times Square has the finest restaurants with all different cuisines in the district.  Or if you want a quick bite, try the food court at the basement of Times Square.  Although, its atmosphere is never as good as in Lan Kwai Fong where you can sit or stand by the street, have a drink and a nice chat with your friends after work

Pearl City Mansion at Patterson Street has several Chinese regional cuisine restaurants which also provide higher quality services than average.

Walk and Leisure:

Take a stroll in the Victoria Park nearby, or visit the newest, biggest Central library in town.  They are all in walking distance.  Victoria Park, in particular, is the regular venue for Chinese New Year Fair and annual HK Flower Show.  Don't miss out if you happen in town!
