Octopus can be used for bus or MTR.

The normal octopus card would do fine. Note if you return for refund less than 1 month there's HK$7 admin fee deducted. It's valid for 2 years from last top up so if you intend to return can hold on to it.

Some correctation, please correct me if i am wrong or disagree?

day 1: you should buy the 3 day tourist pass?
4pm: Is confirm more then HK$20 for your 許留山. I can assure you on that.
Going to Temple Street at 630PM is way to early as more of the stall just staring for business. As for your famous claypot is aready there since afternoon.

Day 2
You can walk from TST MTR to 香港文化中心 is really not far away. I had walk before less then 20 mins walk.
You can skip all the Esprit in TST and aim at Esprit, Citygate, Tung Chung.
Peninsula Hotel high tea is not the 10 thing you must die for.
Best Decor: The avant-garde Felix, in The Peninsula hotel
Take a trip to here ---> http://www.hktb.com/eng/bob/2006/index.jhtml
The 2006 Best of the Best Culinary Awards competition
OR
The Hopewell Tower Revolving 66 Restaurant, Wan Chai
YOU WILL BE AWE BY THE STUNNING VIEW of Hong Kong!! (S$10 bet on that!!)

Day 3
If you want to rush to Disneyland you have to wake up damm early like 6am to avoid morning crowd and mainland crowd at Disneyland Hong Kong.
Is the best view if you take the Cable Car to the Giant Budda and understand the view of Hong Kong. Rather then the Bus 23, must faster also.
Once you are out the Dinsyland Hong Kong. You going to Tung Chung and go back Disneyland. ARE YOU REALLY SURE? Seem you had got it wrong liao... *Shake Head*

Day 4
Bo Lo Bao/Wife Cake, you must try at Wing Wah; 香港榮華餅家 or Kee Wah Bakery Shop << http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kee_Wah_Bakery >>can me found around Hong Kong. (Not to worry if you are going to Kung Tong MTR, you will see Kee Wah Bakery Factory which is the freshly bake out from the factory)

蘭芳園 got milk tea, pork bun, spring onion noodles & other cha chan ting stuff.
Go to Peak 1st and you will see more thing in the Day rather then the night view. Is more colder in the night anyway.
Night time you can go Causeway Bay to shopping until you drop. Shopping Mall like Jumbo SOGO & Time Square!!

Dullell Street Historis Gas Lamp is on top of LKF so pls take note.
You can only catch midnight movies at Mongkok Area if you want?

Hope i can help...
Regards,
QQ

Thumbs up

Best Spot for a Romantic Dinner: With views of Hong Kong's fabled harbor, live piano music, French cuisine, and one of Hong Kong's best wine lists, Petrus, Island Shangri-La Hotel, Supreme Court Road, Central (tel. 852/2820 8590), sets the mood for a special evening à deux. You'll want to linger for some time here, savoring the Mediterranean-influenced food, the castle-like ambience, the view, and each other.

Best Spot for a Business Lunch: Since 1963, business travelers have favored the Mandarin Grill, Mandarin Oriental Hotel, 5 Connaught Rd., Central (tel. 852/2522 0111), conveniently located in the heart of Hong Kong's financial and business district. It offers drawing-room comfort and high-powered food, a winning combination for clinching those business deals. And since no children are allowed except for Sunday brunch, business deals won't have to compete with toddler theatrics.

Best Spot for a Celebration: An elegant, colonial-age setting, attentive service, dependably good French haute cuisine, and an extensive wine list make Gaddi's, The Peninsula hotel, Salisbury Road, Tsim Sha Tsui (tel. 852/2315 3171), a natural for a splurge or special celebration. If, however, your idea of a celebration is more exuberant and youthful, you can do no better than M at the Fringe, 2 Lower Albert Rd., Central (tel. 852/2877 4000), a Hong Kong favorite for its quirky interior, artsy crowd, and always excellent creative cuisine.

Best Decor: The avant-garde Felix, in The Peninsula hotel, Salisbury Road, Tsim Sha Tsui (tel. 852/2315 3188), was designed by Philippe Starck. In addition to providing Hong Kong's most unusual, innovative setting, the restaurant offers stunning views, one of the world's smallest discos, and slightly exhibitionist bathrooms. Wear your trendiest duds -- you, too, will be part of the display.

Best View: In a town famous for its views, you might as well go to the very top, where the curved facade of Cafe Deco, Peak Galleria, Victoria Peak (tel. 852/2849 5111), offers Hong Kong's best panorama, along with live jazz in the evening and moderately priced -- though occasionally mediocre -- international cuisine. Reserve a harbor-view window seat a couple of weeks in advance; what you're really paying for here is the unparalleled view.

Best Wine List: Not only does SPOON by Alain Ducasse, Hotel InterContinental Hong Kong, Salisbury Road, Tsim Sha Tsui (tel. 852/2313 2256), offer great harbor views, excellent contemporary French cuisine, and impeccable service, but it also boasts a selection of 3,000 bottles of wine, on view at the restaurant's entrance.

Best Cantonese Cuisine: With some of the world's best Cantonese restaurants located in Hong Kong, this is obviously a tough call, but you can't go wrong at the very sophisticated and classy Yan Toh Heen, Hotel InterContinental Hong Kong, Salisbury Road, Tsim Sha Tsui (tel. 852/2721 1211), where the emphasis is on stark simplicity, a view of the harbor, and traditional and creative dishes that border on Chinese nouvelle cuisine.

Best Chinese for the Uninitiated: If you're unfamiliar with Chinese food beyond sweet-and-sour pork and feel -- perhaps reluctantly -- that Hong Kong is the place to widen your horizons, Shang Palace, Kowloon Shangri-La Hotel, 64 Mody Rd., Tsim Sha Tsui East (tel. 852/2733 8754), is a good introduction to the almost limitless variety of Cantonese food, all listed on an English menu. It's also a good place to try dim sum for the first time. The helpful staff is happy to make recommendations. The elaborately decorated lacquered walls and Chinese lanterns all fit the fantasy of a Chinese restaurant in Asia.

Best Chinese Hot Spot: Make reservations early for Hutong, on the 28th floor of an office building at 1 Peking Road, Tsim Sha Tsui (tel. 852/3428 8342). This place is as hip as a Chinese restaurant can be, with fantastic views over Hong Kong, a darkened interior with splashes of red lighting, and innovative northern Chinese cuisine. Dining here will want to make you live forever, if only to see what can possibly top this; this being Hong Kong, something eventually will.

Best Dim Sum Experience: The quaint ceiling fans, spittoons, and wooden booths evoke a 1930s ambience at Luk Yu Tea House, 24-26 Stanley St., Central (tel. 852/2523 5464). First opened in 1933, it's one of Hong Kong's oldest restaurants, famous for its dim sum and filled daily with regular customers. It's hard to find an empty seat here but worth the effort.

Best American Cuisine: There's no better place in town for a Caesar salad than Napa, Kowloon Shangri-La Hotel, 64 Mody Rd., Tsim Sha Tsui East (tel. 852/2733 8752), where you can follow your salad with Californian cuisine that includes pastas and seafood. The great harbor views make it a perfect place for a relaxed lunch or dinner.

Best French Cuisine: Petrus, Island Shangri-La (see "Best Spot for a Romantic Dinner," above) is the top French restaurant in more ways than one: It's located on the 56th floor and offers breathtaking harbor views. Decorated like a French castle, it features contemporary French creations and one of Hong Kong's most definitive wine lists, delivered by a professional and discreet staff.

Best Italian Cuisine: There are a lot of contenders in this category, but the harbor views, airy palatial setting, and traditional northern Italian home-style cooking combine to make Grissini, Grand Hyatt Hong Kong Hotel, 1 Harbour Rd., Wan Chai (tel. 852/2588 1234), a favorite choice for lunch or dinner.

Best Western/Asian Fusion Cuisine: Trendy restaurants utilizing Western and Asian ingredients to create new dishes are the vogue in Hong Kong, but few carry it off as masterfully as Vong, Mandarin Oriental Hotel, 5 Connaught Rd., Central (tel. 852/2522 0111), offering what is arguably the best interpretation of Franco-Asian cuisine in this part of the hemisphere (same owner/chef as the Vong in New York City), as well as great views of the harbor and a nattily dressed crowd.

Best Seafood: Huge decorative seafood tanks and views of Victoria Harbour provide the perfect setting for a memorable seafood dinner at Yü, Hotel InterContinental Hong Kong, Salisbury Road, Tsim Sha Tsui (tel. 852/2721 1211). Lobster, crabs, prawns, abalone, mussels, and fish are kept alive until the decisive moment. Chefs prepare your food according to your wishes; there are also imported oysters and a sushi bar.

Best Buffet Spread: Lots of hotels offer buffets, but none can match the sheer extravagance and chic atmosphere of café TOO, Island Shangri-La Hotel, Supreme Court Road, Central (tel. 852/2820 8571, ext. 8571). Overlooking the greenery of Hong Kong Park and sporting a hip, contemporary look, it features open kitchens and seven "stations" of food presentations spread throughout the restaurant, eliminating the assembly-line atmosphere inherent in most buffet restaurants. The danger? The temptation to try every delectable dish on display.

Best Steaks: Juicy U.S. prime Midwestern beef, broiled to perfection, is the forte of American chain Ruth's Chris Steak House, 68 Mody Rd., Tsim Sha Tsui East (tel. 852/2366 6000) and 89 Queensway, Central (tel. 852/2522 9090), along with side dishes of mashed potatoes, sautéed spinach, and Caesar salad. This place is guaranteed to satisfy the cravings of the most dedicated carnivore.

Best Burgers and Beer: Dan Ryan's Chicago Grill, with two locations both sides of the harbor at 88 Queensway, Central (tel. 852/2845 4600), and Ocean Terminal (tel. 852/2735 6111), offers casual dining, good burgers (and other good American food), and drinks throughout the day; its Kowloon branch even provides a view of the busy harbor.

Best Pizza: Located in Hong Kong's prime nightlife district, Baci Pizza, 1 Lan Kwai Fong, Central (tel. 852/2840 0153), is a small casual pizzeria offering delicious, wafer-thin pizzas at reasonable prices, as well as pastas.

Best Outdoor Dining: Atop Victoria Peak, away from the constant drone of Hong Kong's traffic, is the delightful Peak Lookout, 121 Peak Rd., Victoria Peak (tel. 852/2849 1000), which serves international cuisine. From an outdoor terrace surrounded by lush foliage, you can actually hear the birds sing. Some tables provide views of Hong Kong Island's southern coast. Musicians entertain nightly with oldies but goldies.

Best for Families: Mövenpick Marché, Peak Tower, Victoria Peak (tel. 852/2849 2000), is a cafeteria offering something for everyone (pizza and pasta for the kids, international fare and drinks for the parents), along with great views of Hong Kong. It's also one of the few restaurants that actually acknowledge the existence of kids, with a children's corner complete with a toddler slide, toys, crayons, and other diversions. For older kids, there's a Ripley's Believe It or Not! Odditorium, Madame Tussaud's, and a motion-simulation theater in the same building on the Peak.

Best Place to Chill Out: If the stress of travel and the noise and crowds of Hong Kong have pushed you to the breaking point, take a ferry to one of the open-air seafood restaurants on the waterfront of Sok Kwu Wan village on Lamma island, where you can dine on fresh seafood, drink a beer or two, and regain perspective. For even more relaxation, hike to one of the island's beaches.

Best Afternoon Tea: For that most British institution, no place is more famous than the golden-age and unparalleled Peninsula Hotel Lobby, Salisbury Road, Tsim Sha Tsui (tel. 852/2920 2888), where you can nibble on delicate finger sandwiches and scones, watch the parade of people, and listen to live classical music being played from an upstairs balcony.

Best Sunday Brunch: You'll be spoiled forever -- or at least for the rest of the day -- if you begin Sunday morning at The Verandah, 109 Repulse Bay Rd., Repulse Bay (tel. 852/2812 2722), complete with a three-piece band. Wonderfully reminiscent of the colonial era, it features Hong Kong's most famous Sunday spread, with main courses like eggs Benedict from a menu, a carving of the day, pasta cooked to order, sushi, dim sum, and more. If ever there were a place that inspired champagne for breakfast, this is it.

Best Desserts: I was born without a sweet tooth, but even I was tempted when the dessert cart was wheeled out at the end of a memorable dinner at Sabatini, Royal Garden hotel, 69 Mody Rd., Tsim Sha Tsui East (tel. 852/2733 2000). The sinfully rich creations were all lovingly described and looked equally delicious. In the end, I went for the tiramisu, and I can't imagine the meal without it.

ABOUT DIM SUM

Kowloon

The Chinese CANTONESE -- A refined, modern, and fancy setting for dim sum, with correspondingly high prices. There are no trolleys here, but there's a dim sum menu with about 20 different offerings.

In the Hyatt Regency Hotel, 67 Nathan Rd., Tsim Sha Tsui. tel. 852/2311 1234, ext. 2881. www.hongkong.regency.hyatt.com. Dim sum HK$28-HK$48 (US$3.65-US$6.25). AE, DC, MC, V. Mon-Sat 11:30am-2:45pm and Sun 10:30am-2:45pm, for dim sum. MTR: Tsim Sha Tsui.

City Chiuchow Restaurant CHIU CHOW -- Although it's a Chiu Chow restaurant, this place serves its own dim sum, which is not too surprising if you consider that Chiu Chow food has been greatly influenced by Cantonese food.

East Ocean Centre, 98 Granville Rd., Tsim Sha Tsui East. tel. 852/2723 6226. Dim sum HK$16-HK$25 (US$2.10-US$3.25). AE, DC, MC, V. Daily 11am-4pm for dim sum. MTR: Tsim Sha Tsui.

Fook Lam Moon CANTONESE -- This is a Hong Kong old-timer, with an atmosphere that is reminiscent of an earlier era. There aren't any trolleys here, however -- just a Chinese menu. Ask an English-speaking waiter for translations.

53-59 Kimberley Rd., Tsim Sha Tsui. tel. 852/2366 0286. www.fooklammoon-grp.com. Dim sum HK$30-HK$60 (US$3.90-US$7.80). AE, DC, MC, V. Daily 11:30am-2:30pm, for dim sum. MTR: Tsim Sha Tsui.

Hutong CANTONESE -- Great views of the harbor and creative dim sum is what you get at this hip venue. Expect the likes of steamed lamb dumpling instead of pork, with about eight different kinds of dim sum that change monthly. This place is pricey, but worth it.

1 Peking Rd. (28th floor), Tsim Sha Tsui. tel. 852/3428 8342. www.aqua.com.hk. Dim sum HK$68-HK$88 (US$8.85-US$11). AE, DC, MC, V. Mon-Sat 11am-3pm, Sun and holidays 10am-3pm, for dim sum. MTR: Tsim Sha Tsui.

Jade Garden Chinese Restaurant CANTONESE -- An easy place for the uninitiated, this Cantonese chain is tourist-friendly and conveniently situated across from the Star Ferry terminus. It offers views of Victoria Harbour and trolleys of dim sum, as well as an English menu. You can save money by dining after 2:30pm on weekdays, when most dim sum costs only HK$11 (US$1.45). There's another branch at 25-31 Carnarvon Rd. (tel. 852/2369 8311; MTR: Tsim Sha Tsui), serving dim sum daily from 7:30am to 5pm.

Star House (4th floor), 3 Salisbury Rd., Tsim Sha Tsui. tel. 852/2730 6888. Dim sum HK$16-HK$36 (US$2.10-US$4.70). AE, DC, MC, V. Mon-Sat 11am-5pm, Sun and holidays 10am-5pm, for dim sum. MTR: Tsim Sha Tsui.

Serenade Chinese Restaurant CANONTESE -- This is my top choice for inexpensive dim sum with a view in Tsim Sha Tsui. Located up on the first floor of the Hong Kong Cultural Centre, next to the Star Ferry, it offers views of Victoria Harbour and dim sum served from trolleys. Bright and cheerful, it's more upmarket than some but more casual than hotel restaurants.

Hong Kong Cultural Centre (1st floor), Restaurant Block, Salisbury Rd., Tsim Sha Tsui. tel. 852/2722 0932. Dim sum HK$28-HK$40 (US$3.65-US$5.20). AE, DC, MC, V. Mon-Fri 11am-4:30pm, Sat-Sun and holidays 9am-4:30pm, for dim sum. MTR: Tsim Sha Tsui.

Shang Palace CANTONESE -- One of Kowloon's most elaborate Chinese restaurants comes complete with red-lacquered walls and Chinese lanterns hanging from the ceiling. Because it provides a menu in English, this is a great place to try dim sum for the first time, not to mention the fact that its dim sum is among the best in town -- a bit more expensive, but worth it. Choose your dim sum from the menu, which changes every 2 weeks and always includes more than a dozen varieties.

In the Shangri-La Hotel, 64 Mody Rd., Tsim Sha Tsui East. tel. 852/2733 8754. Dim sum HK$30-HK$38 (US$3.90-US$4.95). AE, DC, MC, V. Mon-Sat noon-3pm, Sun and holidays 10:30am-3pm, for dim sum. MTR: Tsim Sha Tsui.

Spring Moon CANTONESE -- As you'd expect from a restaurant in the venerable Peninsula hotel, this is a very refined and civilized place for the humble dim sum, with an English menu that lists more than a dozen dim sum and more than two dozen varieties of Chinese teas available for lunch. In addition, from 3 to 4:30pm, there's a Chinese version of the British afternoon tea, with a fixed-price menu for dim sum and tea (HK$165/US$21). The restaurant is decorated in an Art Deco style reminiscent of how the restaurant would have looked in 1928, the year The Peninsula opened, with cuisine that changes with the season.

In The Peninsula hotel, Salisbury Rd., Tsim Sha Tsui. tel. 852/2920 2888. www.peninsula.com. Dim sum HK$38 (US$4.95). AE, DC, MC, V. Daily 11:30am-2:30pm, for dim sum. MTR: Tsim Sha Tsui.

Super Star Seafood Restaurant CANTONESE/SEAFOOD -- This lively and popular seafood restaurant, filled with locals, is one of Tsim Sha Tsui's best places for trying authentic dim sum in a typical Chinese setting. There's no English menu, so you'll just have to look at the offerings on the various trolleys.

83-97 Nathan Rd., Tsim Sha Tsui. tel. 852/2366 0878. Dim sum HK$15-HK$38 (US$1.95-US$4.95). AE, DC, MC, V. Mon-Fri 10:30am-4:30pm, Sat-Sun 9:30am-4:30pm, for dim sum. MTR: Tsim Sha Tsui.

Tsui Hang Village Restaurant CANTONESE -- Tsui Hang Village, a modern restaurant located in a shopping complex across from the Miramar Hotel, offers inexpensive plates of dim sum. There's a branch across the harbor on the second floor of the New World Tower, 16-18 Queen's Rd., Central (tel. 852/2524 2012; MTR: Central), serving dim sum Saturday from 11am to 5pm and Sunday and holidays from 10am to 5pm.

Miramar Plaza, 1 Kimberley Rd., Tsim Sha Tsui. tel. 852/2368 6363. www.Miramar-group.com. Dim sum HK$18-HK$38 (US$2.35-US$4.95). AE, MC, V. Mon-Sat 11:30am-5pm, Sun and holidays 10am-5pm, for dim sum. MTR: Tsim Sha Tsui.

Yan Toh Heen CANTONESE -- One of Hong Kong's top Cantonese eateries, this elegant restaurant with large windows treats diners to views of the harbor. A daily changing menu offers about two dozen varieties of dim sum.

In the InterContinental Hong Kong, 18 Salisbury Rd., Tsim Sha Tsui. tel. 852/2721 1211. www.hongkong-ic.intercontinental.com. Dim sum HK$38-HK$60 (US$4.95-US$7.80). AE, DC, MC, V. Mon-Sat noon-2:30pm, Sun and holidays 11:30am-3:30pm, for dim sum. MTR: Tsim Sha Tsui.

Central

Luk Yu Tea House CANTONESE -- The most authentic dim sum teahouse in Hong Kong is often so packed with regulars that mere tourists can't get a seat. Furthermore, trolleys with dim sum are pushed through the place only until 11am, after which there's only a Chinese menu. Yet it's worth the effort to come here; try to bring along a Chinese friend to help you with your selections.

24-26 Stanley St., Central. tel. 852/2523 5464. Dim sum HK$25-HK$55 (US$3.25-US$7.15). MC, V. Daily 7am-5:30pm for dim sum. MTR: Central.

Maxim's Palace CANTONESE -- There's no better place for cheap dim sum than this enormously popular restaurant, located on the second floor of City Hall just a stone's throw from the Star Ferry. A recent refurbishment has put some unfortunate glaze on the windows, blocking the once-fabled views of the harbor (we can only hope it's temporary), but it's still a lively place to choose dim sum from trolleys, plus there's an English menu with photos and prices. It doesn't get much easier than this.

Low Block, City Hall, Connaught Road Central and Edinburgh Place. tel. 852/2526 9931. Dim sum HK$17-HK$29 (US$2.20-US$3.75). AE, DC, MC, V. Daily Mon-Sat 11am-3pm, Sun and holidays 9am-3pm, for dim sum. MTR: Central.

The Square CANTONESE -- This smartly decorated restaurant, next to Hong Kong Station and ifc mall, offers only a dozen or so dim sum choices on weekdays but a greatly expanded dim sum menu on weekends and holidays. The restaurant is renowned for its steamed lobster dumplings and egg tarts with bird's nest, but even the humble steamed barbecued pork buns here are among the best I've had. Try to reserve a window seat from which you can watch the Star Ferry as it comes and goes from the Central pier (but note that it's in the smoking section).

Exchange Square II, Central. tel. 852/2525 1163. Dim sum HK$16-HK$58 (US$2.10-US$7.55). AE, DC, MC, V. Daily 11am-3pm, for dim sum. MTR: Central.

Zen Chinese CANTONESE -- Starkly modern and hip, this Cantonese restaurant offers dim sum daily from an English menu, with more varieties available on the weekend.

The Mall, Pacific Place, 88 Queensway, Central. tel. 852/2845 4555. Dim sum HK$30-HK$55 (US$3.85-US$7.05). AE, DC, MC, V. Mon-Fri 11:30am-3pm, Sat 11:30am-5pm, Sun 10:30am-5pm, for dim sum. MTR: Admiralty.

Wan Chai

Fook Lam Moon CANTONESE -- This branch of the well-known expensive Cantonese restaurant offers dim sum from a Chinese menu only (no trolleys). Ask an English-speaking waiter for translations.

35-45 Johnston Rd., Wan Chai. tel. 852/2866 0663. Dim sum HK$30-HK$60 (US$3.90-US$7.80). AE, DC, MC, V. Daily 11:30am-2:30pm. MTR: Wan Chai.
