looks like now the cheapest return air-tickets are from Tiger Airways to Macau @ ~$230/pax inclusive all taxes. Any one has better lobangs?

Is it expensive and takes a long time to travel from Macau to Hong Kong?

Hi i'm planing to go hk in august. This is my first trip there so there r things tat i'm still checking out..

The hotel tat was recommended to me is Metropark Hotel Mongkok (Formerly Hotel Concourse). Any1 stay in this hotel recently? How is e hotel? Is e room big enough to hold 3 adults? Are there any others hotels which u all would recommend?

I would be there for 4d3n like to ask those of you who has been to hongkong wat was the price u pay for the whole package including the airtickets (exclude airport tax). O n myflight will b cathay pacific n total price is more than $1600. Is it too ex?
Hi, i just came back from Hk last wk. Stayed int he Metropark Mongkok. An average hotel. Neither fantastic nor lousy. Think hotels in HK are just like that. The room can accomodate 3 adults. I got a king size bed. But might be a bit squeezy for 3 guys. It got several Hk cafes ard the hotel and some are even 24hrs. Rem to try a noodle stall opp the hotel when u exit from the carpark sidedoor. Its juz across the road and the signboard is a big chinese character " Mian".

airport express is a train
it connects you to the MTR of HK

i believe airport express will be faster, but more expensive

Royal Plaza - 4* hotel
Comfy. Big room. Stayed there 2x in Aug 06 & Dec 06.
Had room with kitchenette in Aug 06.
Had room with triple bed in Dec 06 (went with kids).

Location: Pretty good. Next to shopping centre (Century Plaza). Connected to Langham Place via overhead bridge and MTR. Short walk to Ladies Street.
Next to KCR.

Cons: gym is NOT FREE for hotel guest (WTF !!)

Free gym to hotel guest. Listed below...

Thanks for the post qqspot. Unfortunately, I've already learnt that hotel pix may not really represent the real gym eg equipment is rusty or badly maintained, or has limited equipment and hides this by just showing part of the gym in their pix.
