Hi limeiyan1231,

Is the hotel Anne Black Guest House ok for staying for about 5 days? I search on the internet and seem that I need to walk quite a fair distance to reached Mongkok MTR. Is there any good things around there, for example food, shopping etc..

Thanks Limeiyan1231! Looks like its not so well reviewed huh? Guess must always take those Food Programs review with a huge dose of salt!

I really must take my hats off to u, u seem to know HK very well (not all Hong Kongers are knowledgeable of places, especially for food). During my last trip in HK, i actually have Hong Kongers approaching me for directions instead! You must either always be travelling around hunting for good food or u must be pretty resourceful!
yap...For "Macau Cha Chan Ting" personal comment is not valuable for me. Normally spend HKD$50 or above for a dish. Not worth to try for tourist. (just my Opinion)

Thanks for your appericate.
I just want you all to have a nice and enjoyable journey in HK.
That's only way i can do.

Is it a must to boil the water before drinking?
Although HK is clean (SG is cleaner) But for safety, please boil before you want to drink water

Hi,

I have never been to Hong Kong and can't speak cantonese. U think I will have a problem travelling alone there? Am looking to go for a few days. Possible to bring me around if u free?
sure no problem if u can speak either english or mandarin.
when would you come? check my schedule first

Oh thanks man... btw, using the public phone to call back to sg izzit expensive? wad number shld i dail to call back to sg?
Hey~ HK got seldom public phone to call oversea.
It's better if u prepare a sim card.
depends which communicate service u use, do some research on yr side.

Please call IDD+ 65 before call back SG.

hi guys, i am new here..
was juz wondering if any of you guys stayed at the YMCA Premier rooms ? heard it is located at the new tower of YMCA.
I have actually booked nathan hotel already but juz wana keep my options open.


THanks!

I think you're meant "Tsim Sha Tsui" YMCA , Coz if u talk about premier rooms, "Tsim sha Tsui" YMCA got Hong kong Habour View. The location is quite convenient to go MTR, Hong Kong Science Museum , Hong Kong Space Museum..

another shoppin question!!
sorry to trouble u guys,

but i hv read from the HongKong trip thread.. alot of ppl seem to mention about those factory warehouses at Yip Fatt Building or somewhere along tat..

Are those factories still open n selling stuffs or are they actually closed ? nobody seems to updating the info on tat, so i am not really sure..
So i guess it will be helpful to ask the local HK'er here!!

i saw the www.twist.hk website.. it helps! thanks!
can u recommend any other places tat sells branded goods at affordable prices ?

Thanks a lot!!

HIHI~

Pls see below website, It might help if u want to shop around outlets in HK
http://www.hkoutlets.com/outlets/

If you don't mind, go "Women Street @ Mong Kok" get a copy brand goods there, it's really affordable.
But if you mind, only can go DFS / Twist then can get cheaper brand goods.
