hi,
may i know how's the weather at HK now ?
where you staying ? cos I'm trying to get help to know how far is Kimberly Hotel from the nearest MTR exit and if the exit has elevators.
cos I'm bringing my parents to HK next month and I worry they need to walk too far.

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...

No one can advice me on shenzhen? Just need to know if its worth going and whether I should go on sat, sun or monday... thinking of going on sunday but ppl in other forums say sun is peak.

If worried stay at Pruton Prudential. From hotel go directly to Jordan MTR station. Take escalators all the way down to basement level. on top of shopping mall. Advantage is can go all over via mtr without going out into the open. lots of food around there. Diagonally opposite is the Peking Restaurant. Have nice peking duck! Go for dinner before 7pm or have to make reservations. Temple street market around the corner only. Dont know about price difference though.

Shenzhen is good for cheap shopping...

Luo hu(right side of custom) more of fake branded goods but i dun like the touting. irritating.

Lao jie(Dong men) is shopping heaven but u will need some time to dig around.Alot of stores!!

There is a queenspa there which is very cheap..if not wrong is the 2nd MRT stop.

Last stop will be Window of the world.Scale down size of famous building/structure in the world.

I have booked a room with Prudential in this coming Dec. Standard is $155 and superior is $175. Got $60 off from Zuji using UOB credit. Price up a bit compare to Kimberly, but is a 4* hotel and very near to MTR.
