Situated on the "Golden Mile" of Nathan Road (the southern-most mile of the thoroughfare until it reaches harbor-side Salisbury Road), Chung King Mansions is an alternative landmark to witness the city's extending heritage as a colony and crucial trading port. The 17-story block is the ground zero of cheap hostels (with more than 80 budget accommodations crammed inside), together with chaos and eye-opening globalization. The bottom two levels of the building houses wholesale stores that sell everything you can think of. This is the most multi-cultural part of the city and otherwise very much homogeneous China. The majority of the residents and shop owners are immigrants from all parts of Asia and Africa and most hostel guests are young backpackers from Europe, North America and Oceania.

- Best for Free Things to Do Because: Chung King Mansions is like a mini United Nations, with scores of cultures and nationalities jumbled together.
- Best for Attractions near Cruise Port Because: The 17-story building in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui is an essential hangout to understand Hong Kong's multiculturalism.
