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.
Just to clarify, dino999. Is the $155 and $175 before or after the $60 off?

Is before. Please note that they charge extra $ like tax$20 and fee$60 for hotel and HK government. Not sure is it a common practice. In the end, I paid more...

Anyone knows metropark kowloon and BP international? reviews not bad....

NO matter how you book the Hotel in Hong Kong make sure you check the Taxes & HK Gov fee on your bill or like wise you will end up paying the thing in the end of your hotel.

So please advise and call the Hotels & your Agent and confirm and check clearly.

I book from the hotel website and it said HKD750 nett, which is slightly more value-for-money. The rate is the same for weekdays and weekends.

My friend told me his hotel collected HK500 as deposit when he checked in and refund him when he checked out. Is it a common practice?

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.
Would like to go to "Window of scale". May I know the name of your "last stop" Is it at the "last stop" or do I need to further travel by cab or bus? Thanks.

Thanks. So I must set aside HK500 for deposit and do some last minutes shopping after I checked out.

Thumbs up

Only apply to HK HSBC Issued Bank of HKD 1000 Notes. Most of the merchants will not accept that kinds of notes.

If you give a HKD 1000 note to a Taxi driver you will end up get scolded no matter whats!!
