I just came back from Hong Kong. Got a prepaid sim card there with about HK$133 left in it. Anyone interested in buying it, please pm me. Don't want it to go to waste

Hi people, so many posts about HK here! Great!

I planning to go there end December. However the hotel recommended by travel agency is Dorsett Seaview Hotel. Anyone has any idea of how the hotel service is like?
Could anyone give advise on the ways to get back to Dorsett Seaview Hotel from Train station once I am back from Shenzhen?

Any other advise would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks in advance!

Thanks a million,.... This definitely helps a great deal!

I've no idea whats this place like but i do have a rough idea how to get there:

1) Take Airport Express from Airport to Hong Kong Station (last stop)

2) Walk over to MTR Causeway Bay Exit E

3) After exit, head east along Great George Street.

4) Turn LEFT into Paterson Street and walk straight along Paterson Street.

5) Second building on yr right is Kingston Building.

As for how much it'll cost, pls refer to: http://www.mtr.com.hk/eng/train/ae_ticket.htm

Yes, you will need to fill immigration form. I have HKID and still need to fill at SZ side
You know how much the hassle having to travel to SZ about 4 times a week? I pre-fill all the forms except the dates.. hehe
u ish one of the hongkong men like to fool in sz one ish it haha

yup.. I have been drawing for a few times for the past few months. Rates ranges from 5.16 to 5.21
However, i think the rate these few weeks seems better.

By the way, i will be in am having my exchange in hong kong til december. If any forumer who need help can contact me.

Regarding the KCR to luo hu, i have a technique that can help you make a return trip 1st class free [meaning if u go luo hu and return to HK(2ways) for $X, you can also take 1st class on return trip for the same $X] . PM me for details.
pm full leh

Thanks! Will check it out b4 going...

No rain in Winter and Spring..
I recalled summer temperature as early as May! Temperature can be quite unpredictable as it can get 20-24C and hitting 10-16C when there are cold fronts. Really cant tell you much but guess around 17-18C in the day as coldest around Feb. A jacket and long sleeve should do most of the time. Sorry, I'm not the weather man, and I'm just going by what I remember and weather is quite unpredictable.

Again, check www.weather.com.hk before travelling and look at the 5 days forecast. Weather there is not like Singapore where its always 24-32 all year round and showers in some areas.. HAHA...

There were days where it was warm at 28C in the morning and by late night, the temperature went down to 18. Amazing 10C drop within a few hrs due to cold fronts. Thats usually in transition period from spring to summer.

It is also not very well maintained.
Paint was fading on some statues and buildings in the park when I was there.
The canoe was closed.

My kids who pestered my wife and I for 3 months to bring them there wanted to leave after a minute there.

Any idea how much the transportation from Macau to HK costs?

Btw for those who might be interested, Jetstar asia promo now from SG-MACAU.

$185 to and fro cheapest.

If you bring along a camera and tripod, you can probably catch some fireworks at TST star ave.
