In our opinion, the best area to stay at is Tsim Sha Tsui or Wan Chai! Two of Hong Kong’s largest mosques and a number of halal eateries are located in these two areas. Plus, both locations are really convenient for tourists.

P.S. Here are the 10 dim sum dishes you need to try at Islamic Centre Canteen!
If you enjoy shopping, we would recommend staying closer to Causeway Bay, the heart of Hong Kong’s shopping scene! Shopping centres you have to visit include Times Square, Hysan Place, Lee Gardens One & Two, SOGO Department Store and Fashion Walk. Also, it’s bargains galore at Jardine’s Crescent street market!

#HHWT Tip: DO NOT leave Hong Kong without trying the local food at Islamic Centre Canteen, Wai Kee Roast Duck, Ma’s Restaurant and Islam Food (which we’ve yet to try)! We kid, but seriously, the local food is awesome :P
