Hong Kong and The Peninsula Hotel

The location and reasons to visit:

Hong Kong.  A fascinating and very safe place. The tram ride up to The Peak is a must, as is the ferry across the bay, between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon. Watch out for hawkers on the waterfront area of Kowloon, offering fortune reading. Kowloon is great to walk around, but then do take a ferry at a very cheap price, across the bay to Hong Kong Island.

I stayed in a harbour view room in the Peninsula Hotel, Kowloon.

Review of the Peninsula Hotel, Hong Kong:

The Peninsula Hotel is, for me, the best hotel in Hong Kong, actually being located in Kowloon, across the bay. The food and service are impeccable. If possible, go for a harbour view room, to see the laser display from lasers mounted on the top of hotels and skyscrapers that happens every night for 15 minutes, starting at 20:00 hours.

The Peninsula Hotel is located within walking distance of the ferry terminal and many of Kowloons attractions.

The people who work in the hotel are multilingual and extremely helpful. Nothing is too much trouble and a late check out at 18:00 hours was organised without drama at no cost.  If I return to Hong Kong I would not consider staying at any other hotel.
