Which area to stay in while visiting for the Worlds?
We recommend two main areas to stay in for the Worlds – either close to the main RHKYC Kellett Island clubhouse in Causeway Bay / Wan Chai or closer to the race track in Clearwater Bay.
Causeway Bay offers the energy and bustle of Hong Kong with late night shopping and a good selection of restaurants and bars for night time dining and entertainment. Clearwater Bay is closer to the race track and the hotels nearby are in Tseung Kwan O, located in a more suburban setting about 12 minutes drive away from the race track base. Restaurants for dining are available but this area would have less variety and options than if you were based in the Causeway Bay area.
* We are currently negotiating discounted room rates at the hotels marked with an *. Booking forms reflecting the room rates will be available in due course on the websites for crews to make a reservation directly with the hotel.
If you are still not sure what style accommodation you would like, what location would best fit you or what your budget will get you, please email Jenny Cooper on email@example.com and we can provide you with more specific advice and for families, we are happy to check out some places for you on the ground to make sure they can accommodate your needs.
