Recommendation of a hotel in Hong Kong and Macau

Hi !

I'm a student planning a trip to HK and Macau in the last week of September. Can someone recommend a good place to stay and suggestions for the must see places and things to do ??

Do you gave a guidebook yet? That is the best resource for "must-see" places. Everyone's must-sees are different you have to decide for yourself after reading about the places.

Finding lodging within your budget will likely be the hardest task, as hotels in Hong Kong are very expensive. What is your budget per night?

Agree hotels in HK are pricey, however, the farther north in Kowloon you go, the more moderate the price. We stayecd at the Langham place Hotel and found it to be an excellent value, although still a bit pricey.
AS far as must see's I highly recommend the BigBus hop-on, hop-off tour. While such hop-on/off ideas in other cities are a bit overpriced and gimmicky, this service hits all the highlights and the narration is excellent. Do this the first dday you are there, then everything else during your stay will make more sense. I'll post more in a sep trip report.

The Salisbury YMCA is a great place to stay. I paid $165.00 for a single room and it is right on the water and close to the subway and ferry. Too much to do there to list here. So get a guide book and narrow down your interests and then come back here for any questions you may have.

Dbacks, Unless the water has risen substantially, the Salisbury is a few blocks from the water. Some rooms do have water views.

Salisbury is right next to Peninsula. Same view, same distance from water.

Yes, it is as close to the water as the Pen is. The Pen is also not on the water.

I guess "right on the water" means something different to me than it does to others.

It is not "right on the water" like the IC across Salisbury Rd or the Harbour Grand in Hung Hom. But it is not "a few blocks" either. Let's put it to rest.
