The 'main' section of Hong Kong is divided into two sections (on two different islands) by Victoria Harbor and the China Sea. One side is Hong Kong Island (slightly older and more historic), the other Kowloon (more shopping and night markets): there isn't really a significant difference between the two, however. The Mira is right in the center of Kowloon, on a subway line and a short walk from the ferry, the harbour and Kowloon Park.
|We took the Star Ferry to get there, a quintessential HK experience|

|The ferries are old and atmospheric (and cheap! like a quarter)|

|Weird hallways of the hotel: looks very space age|
|View from our room: this bird landed on the sill but I don't know what kind it is|
One of Hong Kong's better dim sum restaurants was also right nearby (convenient as you must eat dim sum in the morning, not my best time of day).
|Parents like dim sum! These buns were especially delicious|
|I ordered too much as usual|
|R loved the dim sum too|
