Freshly bake from the stove.

Should be around HKD280 - 350 + 20 for your luggage at the back of the trunk of the taxi.

if you have a share cab or call cab might be cheaper.

Sometimes you never know MTR is much faster then cab.
ya is ard this price, and if convert back to sgd is ard $60 ... is hell of a expensive ride.

u mean dim sum?

btw, are the dim sum there only cheap during breakfast or throughout the day also same price?
they charge different prices for different times...
normally, they charge by 4 types
xiao(small)
zhong(medium)
da(big)
ting(supposed to means best, but frm my experience, not really the best)
for S,M,L say BF they charge 4.8, 7.8, 9.8 HKD
then for lunch they might charge 5.8,8.8,10.8 HKD something lidat..can't really remember the actual pricing, but the idea is BF is the cheapest follow by tea break at around 3-5pm
ting is special pricing stuff...which can be more than big, or somewhere in between big to medium pricing or even cheaper than small pricing....
tt's why i say that ting is not really best (thou in chinese it is)

The shows... are "extras".

It's a 10-20 min walk from the skyrail. Including walking up the stairs.

I went to Tai O after Giant Buddha. It's just a bus ride (21 or 23 forgot). But the way from Tai O back to Tung Cheng took me 1 hour, due to construction works on several knolls. Still quite fun to see a natural side of HK anyway.
tat sounds like a good plan for a day.. intend to do so but wonder hows the queue like for the skyrail on a weekday..

after tat prolly have some shopping at citigate.. anyone has any idea what bus to take from Tai O to Tung Chung?

Hi guys, planning for a trip to HK on 11july to 17july.

Which airline provide best offers now?

Wat are the choices of hotel if budget <sgd$100, <sgd$150 ?
Location wise, preferrable in mongkok area, near MTR station, near ladies street.

I've browsed thru this thread, came to notice the 2 hostel which in mongkok area, 2 mins walk to ladies street. Any updated info on the 2 hostel? Cos it abt 1yr back when the review was posted.
Best if u guys can provide me with ranking(??/10) like the location? easy access? room space? private bathroom? rates? bed? etc...
