Is it like singapore MRT transfer to LRT without the need to exit?
That means i need to TOP up some $ in the octopus card in order to take KCR, thanks.
KCR and MTR has different entries AFAIK
So u need to exit one to enter the other

Previously I purchase a 3-day tourist pass so I plan all trips for the 3 consecutive days with MTR then top up the card to use it on buses and KCR to ShenZhen and etc

Drop me a PM with your mobile number, if you are interested about the apartment??
Hi qqspot,

Did you stay the one at Lockhart Road or Paterson Street at studiostudio. Do they provide fresh bedsheet, pillow and blanket? Any towels provided? Trying to decide which one to take. Can you recommend?

Thanks

They have a few places in HOng Kong Island now.
they do provide fresh bedsheet, pillow and blanket, mircowave and tolitet paper and hot shower and BEST PART FREE WI FI the whole building!!

They are Local REAL HK Apartment with HK Style. If you want to tase how HK Lifestyle like you must stay there. If not I will stil recommened you to stay at Tourist area to be kana CHOP by the tourist Hotel or Shops.

End of the day you will make the call

As for the studiostudio. I had always been staying there since 2006 July. Everytime i am back r station in HK i will be there and pending my lovely sweet dream on a quiet Lockhart Road in Wan Chai.

To be truth, I love wan Chai Wan due to the place, Ding Ding Tram only HKD2.00(Around SGD0.45)

As you know HK Transport FEE wil be a Killer. If you had Been to HK and travel thier Mini Bus, Big Bus, MTR & KCR WORST TAXI you will know what i mean.

Regards,
QQ

Tour package for F&Easy and tour group package is also a rip off from the consumer. Best is to DIY and buy air tickets + hotel

Or you can pm me a PM and i can able to book the hotel for you as i am in Hong Kong now.
Hmm, u mean if book the hotels in hk will be cheaper? cuz one of my colleague's friend is staying in hk and maybe i can get her to book too if its very much cheaper... Thanks.

No all Hotels in HK will be expansive is all depends on your budget.

There also Hotel Tax you must take note of.
