I'm contemplating a trip to Hong Kong and was wondering if I would be better off staying in a hotel on Hong Kong Island or Kowloon? I'm looking for an answer in terms of shopping, nightlife, eating, and other touristy kind of stuff.

So far I'm kind of leaning towards Hong Kong Island, but I'm really not basing that on much...

I was in hong kong last february. doesnt really matter where you stay as long as its near the MTR. the transport system in hong kong is really good and its really quick.

Thanks for the advice everyone, I booked my holiday yesterday. I'm staying on the island in Causeway Bay.

All the travel agents I spoke to tried to convince me to stay in Kowloon, but everyone me and my girlfriend spoke to who had actually been there said staying on Hong Kong Island was better.
