Hi,

Will be going to HK next week. I've book my tixs with United Airlines @$399 per pax. Going for a short 4D3N trip. Have not decide on which hotel or hostel to book. Any recommendations of good hostel that are safe and clean? Is hostel a place safe for 2 gals travelling...??

MACAU
We intend to spend a day in Macau. My first time to Macau. How to get to Macau? I noe is by ferry but where to buy the tickets and where is the ferry terminal? How to get there from Mongkok? Intend to stay near Mongkok or Tsim Sha Tsui Area. What can I do at Macau? Do I approach the Tour operator there or do my own sight seeing? Is the taxi there expensive? Is Macau a place worth going?

DISNEYLAND
We havent decided on whether to go Disneyland also. anyone been there already? Can share if it's worth to go?

Any other places worth going? As this is a short trip, only intend to go for 2 or 3 sightseeing places and spend the rest of the time for Shopping & Eating..

Hope can get some replies here....

Is hostel a place safe for 2 gals travelling? Answer yes if only you find the right hostel...
TRY www.yesinn.com

Macau
There a 1 day tour program you can take part but prepare to pay tips...

Disneyland HK
Disneyland in HK just Launch a new ride feature CARS rides.. Which i am going to try during this Aug or Sept.

HK is easy access with transport but however if you feel lazy and do not might to be a carrot head then join the HK day tour at any tour operater when you got there...

You mean u have booked a room at Chungking Mansions? What's the hostel name?
We have actually listed Li's Hostel. Mirador Hostel & Hong Kong Budget Hostel as our choice of hostel. Most likely to choose Hong Kong Budget Hostel as it's in Mongkok. The other two is located in Tsim Sha Tsui..

Still wondering if Macau is good to go as we are afraid of getting lost there. hahaha..

Looks like going to give Disney a miss too... maybe just concentrate on Macau, Lantau n SHOPPING!!!

Actually the local will shop at Time Square area Causeway Bay to see the real HK life...

Monkok is a bit like Orchard Rd...
