Will be going HK in end July for the 3rd time.. but first time DIY-ing tix and accomodation. Decided on Metropark Hotel Kowloon as I find the the rates rather good on the jetabout website.

Can I check if Hong Kong airport / Hotel seat-in-coach transfer at SGD32 / per person per way is expensive? Cos this is the airport transfer which the hotel is providing..

Many many thanks in advance.

cherrymints, i think you took the travel package or free and easy package.

S$32 Hotel seat-in-coach transfer is normal rate in Hong Kong.

you mean 2 persons taking cab from airport to MetroPark Hotel Kowloon is about SGD$32/trip too? Maybe I will take a cab upon arrival but choose the hotel airport transfer service upon departure..

now that ferry terminal has shifted, how to go peak tram station from there.

the peak tram station, i took quite some time to find also from central. haha.

ok u guys need to find the cityhall, cityhall is something like this ... well how to find the cityhall? take the central mtr map from the mtr station .. see which exit nearer and follow map hehe.



go opposite, there's a tunnel to walkover .. opposite there's a bus stop. pls take note

there's 2 buses to peak, and peak tram. i forget which number already lol, both buses same number, take the one with the alphabet one to the tram station. the bus stop itself will show u all the numbers so no worries on the bus number, go there u will know.

cheers.
