Hi, is there anyone same situation as me? I have a family of 4 with 2 kids.
1) My concern is will the hotel allow me to book a twin room or I have to book a family suite which is at a much higher price? I have budget constraint so would like to squeeze my family into one room and take the twin room which is cheaper. Also I think I dun need a bigger room for my small family.

2) Asiatravel or other booking site only have quotaion for 2 Adult and 1 child. Can I just declared and book the twin room for 2 adults and 1 child. Go to the Hotel check in then tell them that I have one more kid?

Can anyone advise me? Thanks

Depends on how old your kids. Are they below 12? What I would do is to book extra bed for the elder one if available. Didn't tell them about the one more kid. Stayed couple of times at Pruton Prudential before without any problems. In HK most hotels dont provide breakfast so no issue in that aspect.

Can someone advise me: I'll be in hk for 5 days, is it worth to spend 1 day at Shenzhen or Macau?
Read the forum and alot of ppl go to shenzhen for shopping and seafood, can recommend some places to shop for clothes/fake bags for gf and eat seafood? Theme parks in Shenzhen worth going?

Also if going to shenzhen, is it better to go on Sat, Sun or Mon if given a choice? Need to know if the shops are closed on sun/mon or super peak crowds on sat etc...

Pls advice.

Thanks in advance! Really hope no more stupid typhoon...

Erh, why you alone? Why not just some Night Tours in Hong Kong?

Take a free night boat ride from Hong Kong Junk at TST near TST Star Ferry at 6pm?

by the way, what's considered a good exchange rate? dbs is giving 19.75 i think, not sure if that is considered good or reasonable?
