Wah, ur itenarary all places of interest one ah, what happen to ur 买东西,吃东西,买东西,吃东西?

ok, ur day one hor, i think if u dun join day tour it will be better,
Visit Repulse bay/ Stanley market first, and cancel out the aberden market, nothing much there, then have some dinner at central(try cafe de coral), visit the peak at around 7pm+ and see the night skyline. Then take a bus down (NWFB Svc 15) and visit LKF/SOHO, and then go causway bay walk walk la, take train back at ard 11+ or bus also can. HK is still very alive at 10pm++ unlike singapore.

Day2 i suggest u join day tour as its not easy to get to these places.

Day4, i think here's where u have to do some shopping, after u come back TST, just breifly walk and see the Clock tower etc etc, i suggest u to take a star ferry to and fro the victoria harbour, this is what most ppl leave out, to either central and walk thru the botiques at IFC(tallest building) or wan chai convention center(nth much there) then go back TST harbourcity to eat and do some shopping if u wan. 8pm enjoy the symphony of lights, (not fireworks, fireworks only fires during festive days) and ladies street....erm.. i think its quite far away.

Day5, ur walk abit too long ah, 10am walk till 6pm.. btw do visit langham place during this time for lunch and shop shop, and maybe u can use this time to fill in on some places u missed out.

overall i think its allright, just that u may have to slot in some time for ur meals as HK its not easy to find place for meals at lunch/dinner hours, last of all PLS try the french toast during tea time at cafe de coral. =D

Have fun in HK~

They are 24 hours 7 day a week.

But however you might not find any last train at HK MTR they close around 2359hrs

So end up you have to take taxi lah.
Please note that HK is unlike SG, all train services operate until around 1AM every night.

okok, cafe de coral is .... everywhere~ as long u see this sign:
Its basically a fast food resturarnt, selling mainly chinese food and not burgers and fries etc.
Another alternative is Maxim's fast food.

Pricing of cafe de coral at airport is same as other branches, just that they use disposal utensils.

oh i forgot, normals lunch and dinner meals are around HKD$20~30 without drink, the milk tea is nice too. however the serving is huge, so u might want to share the food with ur friends or smthing..

and, all major transport, fast food restuarents, convience stalls and vending machines accept octupus cards, so no need coins

hmm, how much is the octopus card? or do we decide how much worth of "octopus" we want to buy? if it's the latter, what's a reasonable amount to purchase?
