Are all prices in HKD? Or US Dollars?

Can this page be renamed Wanchai and Causeway Bay?

We prefer short and snappy names, but it's fine to define it to cover both areas. Jpatokal 06:11, 26 December 2008 (EST)
"Eastern Hong Kong Island" I think is a pretty boring name. I'd opt for Wan Chai and Causeway Bay as well. --globe-trotter 03:54, 24 December 2010 (EST)

The Metropark Hotel Wanchai does not belong under the listing of "splurge" hotels. At a given rate of HK$450 a night, it's a midrange hotel, and literally a fraction of the price of the other, honest-to-goodness splurge listings. Kirchherr 01:05, 29 March 2011 (EDT)

Change of Name?

I can't remember why we picked "Hong Kong/Eastern Hong Kong Island" but on reflection I think that Wan Chai and causeway Bay is probably the better option. There are very few tourism attractions beyond these two place. I agree with Globe Trotter on this. Who can make the change ? Herngong 11:43, 24 December 2010 (EST)

Hi Claus, when I first saw the maps there was a certain wow factor. I do like the style of cartography. The names given on the maps really do work very well "Eastern Hong Kong Island" and "Wan Chai and Causeway Bay". This then brings the Admiralty question into focus. As you know, Admiralty is a major tourism hotspot and it is a bridge between Central and Wanchai. Ideally, we need to somehow match up these three key places so that tourists can navigate between each of them. Herngong 07:52, 22 June 2011 (EDT)

I would very much favour having "Eastern Hong Kong Island" being matched with "Western Hong Kong Island". Likewise, I am thinking that since Admiralty is a tourism hotspot with a strong cluster of big name hotels, we perhaps should do it justice??? So, instead of "Central Central", maybe we could have " Central and Admiralty" as the focus? What do others think? Herngong 07:59, 22 June 2011 (EDT)
