About this listing
This is really what experiencing Hong Kong is all about. This studio apartment is in the heart of Wan Chai, a district stepped in tradition and sandwiched between Central, the heart of Asia's financial capital and Causewaybay, a true symbol of why Hong Kong is considered a Shoppers' Paradise.
Taxi's, Buses, Trams, Underground transport are all within 3 minute walking distance. The view of this apartment is a breathtaking site of one of Hong Kong's most treasured historical grade sites, the Blue House (easily found through search engines). The area is quickly being transformed with an infusion of art galleries, new world class eateries and bars that take advantage of the city young longing to enjoy the traditional part of the city while also enjoying the exciting vibe happening around the area.
This open studio has a large double bed and a nice lounge sofa PLUS:
1) FREE ultra high speed wireless and LAN internet,
2) Full Kitchen with Smeg branded Fridge, cooker and microwave
3) Basic Cable access and High Definition local channels.
4) Entertainment Audio system and LCD TV with DVD player.
5) iHome iPhone/iPod charging stand
6) New air condition and ceiling fan for the hotter months.
7) Washer (I do recommend the laundromat immediately next to the building as they are cheap fast and good, allowing you to explore the city and let them take care of the "dirty" work)
I hope you enjoy your stay in Hong Kong, one of the most exciting and safest places in the world! This is my home city and I love every bit of it.
I look forward to hosting you and sharing with you my 30 years experience in this town.

Other Things to Note
Once you arrive in Hong Kong, everything is quite simple and all starts with a call from the FREE phones at the airport located in the hall immediately after you pass through baggage customs. There is also a Visitors Center there if you would like to pick up some maps, local travel guides, etc. to read on your way to the apartment. If you need a local SIM card, there is a 7-11 in the middle section of the main arrival hall where they see all types of SIM cards, I usually prefer the PCCW brand as it is the larges local operator.

Please note that you can check in your luggage at anytime during the same day as your flight at the Hong Kong Station Airport Express, which is only a 5 minute taxi or bus ride from the apartment.

I've enjoyed traveling to different parts of the world my entire life and absolutely love meeting locals at each place I visit to get first hand knowledge of the destination. I've made many friends across the globe and look forward to visiting them each time I'm back in the region. I've called Hong Kong my home for the past 30 years, this is absolutely a brilliant little place with so much local flavor and western influences in this Chinese city. I look forward to meeting lots of overseas friends and pointing out the many local favorites so every visitor has a chance to experience the best of this great city.
