okok... my suggestions for things to do/eat for first timers:

to eat
Road side stalls in Mongkok
Congee
Wanton Mee
Lao Po Biscuits

to do
visit the Peak
take Peak tram
take Star ferry to HK
Big Buddha
Wong Tai Sin Temple (if you are a buddhist)
Symphony of lights
take Ding Dong Tram

i tink more or less you have it in your plans.

the MTR brings you to most of the popular places so it should be your primary transport. If you wanna train your wife and kids for road march, walking in between stations is also ok. I personally walked from Causeway Bay to Central and TST to Mongkok before. Not very far... and can get to see alot of things on the way. But perhaps with the kids, it will be a bit more troublesome like carrying 84RR tubes.

There are direct buses from Airport to Mongkok. If you are on budget than buses would definitely be the no.1 transport as compare to taxis (~ HKD$200)
Thanks alot, What's the average cost per meal?

1. I'll be taking bus 23 from Tung Chung stn to Great Buddha, can octopus card used for this bus service.
2. I'll be taking bus 15 from Central Pier 5 to the Peak, can octopus card used for this bus service.
Getting around by MTR/bus, is it better to get the normal octopus card or the tourist day pass. Is it refundable if there is still balance.

Have been using normal octopus card all the while. It's good for 2 years from the last top up. Can always keep it for the next trip.

Hi, I will be going to HK with frens during this coming July.

Can you suggest some must-go-and-see places in HK? we also want to do some cheap shopping on clothes, shoes and bags/accessories too. Where in HK we can find cheap branded stuff? dun mind off-season item. =)

as we are going for only 4days3nights, we want to make full use of our time in HK! we are thinking of visiting macau as well if the time permits, do u recommend us to visit macau during our 4D3N HK trip?
