Where to Hang Out + Bling Bling
If it’s shopping (yes HK has awesome shopping) then Causeway Bay is essential at some point as is Kowloon – Ladies Markets,
Jade Street and Temple Market. For boutiques, shoes, sports gear and kids gear definitely go to the Ocean Centre at Kowloon
next to the Star Ferry. For el cheapo t-shirts etc then Stanley Markets are fun and a good half-day trip. For Pubs the Dickens
Bar at the Excelsior is legendry followed by Delaney’s in Wanchai. Nightclubs include Carnegies & Joe Bananas in Wanchai.
Plus a few haunts at Lan Kwai Fong. There are a few pubs at Kowloon such as Ned Kelly’s Last Stand & Mad Dogs as well as
Delaney’s Kowloon. Eating out is unlimited. Focal points are definitely Lan Kwai Fong on the Island and in and around
Causeway Bay near the Park Lane there are some niche restaurants. You can find somewhere good to eat anywhere.

                                Hong Kong Stadium – Causeway Bay
                                If you have been there for the Sevens this needs little explanation but if you are a first timer
                                then you will be impressed. It’s not unlike the Sydney Football Stadium; around 40,000
                                however there are vast areas of corporate boxes and areas, which takes up seats.
                                Traditionally the South Stand is the party stand but with reserved seating this may change.
                                It probably means Party everywhere! It’s a fantastic stadium in an amazing setting within
                                walking distance of all our hotels in Causeway Bay on HK Island – the place to stay. You
                                won’t be let down by the stadium and the atmosphere because it simply goes off big time!

                                                                                                     Airport to Hotel
This is as easy as it gets. The Airport Express Train departs every 12 minutes with loads of luggage space to Kowloon and
Central (HK Island). The cost is approx HK$90 each way per person. You can also get an Octopus Card enabling travel to a
                                                  Bledisloe Cup Hong Kong 2008
certain value on the MTR. It’s all good value. From the Train Station there are free buses to most hotel combinations and if
not just jump a cab. Cabs are also available from the Airport and there is a toll inbound. Cabs are OK value as well shared
amongst 2+ people. Allow 60 minutes Airport to Hotel and v.v. The same system works in reverse.
                                                      Bledisloe Cup Hong Kong 2008
    Hotel Hints: Our view after 14 years selling Rugby in Hong Kong
Dorsett Seaview is a tourist hotel located close to the Temple and Ladies Markets, just off Nathan Road, the main drag in
Kowloon. It is close to the MTR train to HK Island and is a good choice for the budget conscious and shopaholics!
YMCA Kowloon is in an excellent location. This is more up-market than the usual YMCA and has private facilities, a
restaurant, internet and so on. It’s right next to the Peninsula hotel and just a couple of minutes walk from the Star Ferry
and MTR, which will both take you to Hong Kong Island very easily. There are usually free stadium buses from Central.
Ramada Hong Kong is in the Western district of HK Island. It’s a new hotel and very well appointed. The location is not as
good as Causeway Bay but it’s easily accessible on the MTR nearby and the Tramway network. You are not too far away and
it’s generally better on the Island than Kowloon as taxis are easier at night – many of them late at night stay on one side or
the other and don’t like crossing.
Harbour Plaza North Point is located on the harbour close to Fortress Hill MTR and North Point. This is the next stop
along eastwards from Causeway Bay so you can walk to the Stadium from here in around 30 mins. Nice hotel and one of
the few in Hong Kong with it’s own swimming pool and fitness centre.
Express by Holiday Inn is new, modern and functional and well located in Causeway Bay, which is the place to be for this
event. It’s good value for money for this area and right by Times Square and some seriously good shopping – ladies!
Newton Hong Kong is also at North Point next to the Fortress Hill MTR Station. This is one of our regular Sevens hotels
and it’s great value for money because of it’s location and transport access next door (MTR) Don’t confuse it with the
Newton Inn, which is the same brand but further away eastwards.
Courtyard by Marriott is a brand new hotel just opened. The Courtyard brand is excellent but we haven’t seen it yet – by
all accounts it stacks up well from what we have heard. The location is on the Island, West side close to the Ramada so the
transport options are very good. Go for the deluxe harbour view rooms!
The Park Lane is a real favourite and is a very well known hotel in a great location in Causeway Bay. George’s Bar will get
a thrashing after the match so it’s a hot place to be for this event. Nice lobby, rooms and good security. This will sell early,
as it’s very popular and one of our top hotels for years. We have a lot of rooms here but get in early.
The Regal Hong Kong in Causeway Bay is an impressive European Baroque styled hotel and is the closest to the Stadium.
It’s one of the few hotels in Hong Kong to have a pool.
The Excelsior is the spiritual home of the Rugby Sevens, particularly the Dickens Bar which is a real rugby haunt. The
harbour view rooms are the go as it’s right on the harbour with uninterrupted views across to Kowloon. This is a well-run
hotel managed by Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group so go for it – worth the money for the location and pub!
The Wharney is another rugby favourite probably because it’s located in Wanchai, the nightclub district between Central
and Causeway Bay. If you want nightlife then look no further. Rooms are small but well appointed – you only sleep there!
The Renaissance is located adjacent to the World Trade Centre at Wanchai on HK Island and is right on the harbour. You
can’t go wrong with this location as it’s walking distance to the Wanchai Star Ferry to Kowloon and close to the MTR.
VIP The JW Marriott is a favourite of ours and has the best outdoor heated pool and spa in Hong Kong. Every room has a
view and the location is above the Pacific Place shopping centre. You can walk to Central and it’s a 10-15 min taxi ride to
the Stadium. It’s also close to the dining and nightlife district of Lan Kwai Fong as well as Wanchai. If you like style then
this is an excellent choice at top end of the market. OUR VIP HOTEL – see below. Includes complimentary fruit bowl,
bottled water and newspaper daily, turn down service and express check out as well as complimentary use of fitness centre
and pool.

                                                      VIP HOTEL:        The JW Marriott is our VIP Hotel. We
