Will the rates of the hotel be cheaper if i'll to book directly at the hotel lobby counter? Cos my parents are now in HongKong. If its cheaper then i'll get them to reserve room for me in July.
Normally walk-in rates etc are MUCH higher than for internet or agent bookings

Why not ask your parents to just ENQUIRE 1st then you can compare ????

Yes - travel agents do get great rates

No - don't know the exact websites but maybe you can try/compare zuji, Misa, Chan Bros, Hong Thai etc ..... or google-search

Hi pple, I'm going to HK in 2 day's time. Can anybody advice me on the following?

1) What kind of skincare products/cosmetics should I buy in HK which are not available in Singapore?
2) Location of Good Dim Sum and “Cha Can Ting” places
3) Location of Computer/IT shops
4) Location of shops which sells Toy Capsules (eg Yujin,Bandai) and pooh soft toys


5) Location of shops selling Hello Kitty stuff, esp soft toys (like Sega Disney toys).

6) Location of Espirit Warehouse

Really appreciate any kind soul out there who could share the information. Thanx.

Not really true. If you only book rooms without airfare or other bundle, many hotels now offer guranteed cheapest rate on their web sites.

shirts? Zara. compared to Sg, it's cheaper and more variety.
i got some few days back at Times Square.
G2000 also gd choice.
their collection always about 6 months earlier than us.
Fashion, Shoes, Mobile Phones, Cameras, Computers, Hi-Fi & AV Products are always 3-6month ahead of Singapore.

Some of the Fashion brand like H&M & Bape have Retail Store in Central!!

R4 standalone os only at HK$168 when SG is selling at $50 cheapest.
drop by sino centre at mong kok or golden centre at sham sui po.
these 2 place sell the nds and all other jap vids dvds and animes as well.
