Hi,

Have stayed at the Excelsior many times, and would say that it is pretty good. Rooms are sometimes not the most spacious, but I think that is pretty standard in HKG. The hotel bar (the Dickens) is fine for a couple of beers, and you are within about a 20min walk of Wan Chai, or an easy cab/MTR ride to Lan Kwai Fong. Plenty of good restaurants and shopping in the immediate area.

If you are sleeping in while jetlagged, prepare to be woken up with a jolt when the noon-day gun goes off!

Enjoy!

The Dickens bar does a good curry lunch buffet too - and there is TOTT in the same hotel which gets good reviews. I've had several guests stay there with no complaints.

Macau

It's only a short boatride from Hong Kong. The colonial-style buildings have been thoroughly renovated since Lisbon handed the place back to Beijing in 1999 and vehicles have been prohibited from the heart of town.

Beware the casinos, which are all too hungry for customers though the lobbies are worth the visit for the display of traditional arts.

At 16.9 sq.km, it is much smaller and friendlier than Hong Kong, with a distinctly European feel. There are also nice beaches and seaside restaurants.

Definitely worth a stay.

Another option for an ferry excursion from HKG is Lama Island. You can find a hotel from one of the improvised counters along the seaside for the night starting at about USD 20.00. Nice seafood too.

Enjoy!

I second Macau as well. Less than an hour on the foil.

For grub, get a taxi out to Fernandos on Hac Sa beach. Wonderful.
