There is no doubt that Hong Kong is a shoppers’ paradise with no sales or consumer tax, plus a myriad of interesting products to lure the tourists’ dollar. The shopping experience in Hong Kong is said to be a lot more exciting compared to other Asian cities and I would credit that to Hong Kong having a wide range of local and international brands, with visually attractive shop displays, coupled with impeccable customer service. And to complement your shopping, Hong Kong is also known as a food paradise.
If you are a shopaholic, having a well located hotel is convenient and important because you need to be able to drop off your shopping bags after your first round of shopping, before heading out for the next one or two rounds.
The four-star Novotel Hong Kong along Nathan Road is one such hotel. It is conveniently located in the Jordan Yau Ma Tei district in Kowloon. The hotel is less than four minutes walk to the Jordan MTR train station, which is just one station away from the popular Tsim Sha Tsui district and three stations away from the vibrant Central district in Hong Kong island.
To add, it is a ten-minute taxi ride to the popular Harbour City shopping and dining area, with over 700 different retail shops and more than 50 restaurants and eateries.
If you are a Lego fan, it is a five-minute ride to the well-known In’s Point toy mall which is every Lego collector’s dream come true. It is also walking distance to the Temple Street Night Market with the Jade Market and Ladies Market also in the vicinity.
Opened in 2008, the 389-room Novotel showcases a contemporary and chic design, suitable for the modern traveler. The hotel has three room categories with 328 Superior Rooms and 58 Executive Premiere which are 24 sqm. There are also three Executive Premier Suites that are 52 sqm.
