This place is quiet with a good beach out front. Had a nice relaxing stay and the managers were eager to please. The basic room is quite small as are all rooms in HK but for $25 more or whatever it is the VIP room is literally double the size.
Any trip to Hong Kong wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Hong Kong Disneyland, and for many, meeting their favourite Disney characters is the sole purpose of their visit. Located in Penny's Bay, Lantau Island, Hong Kong Disneyland opened in 2005 and it’s a huge affair covering close to 50 hectares. The theme park receives around 8 to 9 million visitors every year and the park management have done a good job of blending aspects of Chinese culture and tradition with the Disney experience – the site itself was designed following the strict rules of Feng Shui. Obviously, the park’s main attraction is its world-class rides and some of the most popular include ‘Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters’, ‘Big Grizzly Mountain Coaster’, ‘Main Street Haunted Hotel’ and the ‘Jungle River Cruise’.
For those looking to visit Hong Kong Disneyland, the island’s excellent MTR system takes around 30 minutes direct from Kowloon and Hong Kong stations, and around the same time from the airport station (including a transfer at Tsing Yi Station). The MRT runs until late, making visiting the park very convenient, but it is equally accessible by taxi or bus. For those who want to drive themselves, Hong Kong Disneyland caters for around 1,000 vehicles, so parking isn’t a problem.
