hey hotterdog let me borrow your itinerary..

I will be staying in Yau Mei tei. PLS HELP!!


Day 1

10.30 am Land HK airport

1.00 pm Shop over at central and causeway bay

4.00 to 7.00 pm wax musuem and the peak

8pm clock tower & Ave of Stars (30 mins) Take MTR to TST station follow exit (HK cultural center) Symphony of Lights

8.20 pm on Fa Yuen street (Mongkok MTR exit D2) look out for “No#135 Fa Yuen Street" It's call Ki Tsui Cake Shop”





Day 2

After breakfast make way to Lantau island, Giant buddha, have vegetarian meal after that

Should go Tai-o village or Ngong ping?
Do some shopping at Citygate and might go to cheng chau island for dinner or back to hotel.

Night Return to night markets for more shopping or hostel.

Day 3

After breakfast Macau trip.


Day 4 After Breakfast go to ocean park. Will spend the whole day there.
evening go to stanley park and repulse bay.

Have late night shopping at mongkok or central/causeway bay

So to go to lantau island ferry is the fastest way right? How to go? take ferry from?

no prob man. i also never go before. but erm, u so sure u can bia 1 hr from peak
back to see symphony of lights ah?

as for going lantau islands have to ask experts, but according to e HK tourism board infor
brochure, it says

"take MTR to central station (exit A), walk to central pier near exchange sq &
take ferry from outlying islands ferr pier no. 6 (ferry journey takes bout 50 mins) or

take mtr to tun chung station or

from HK int. airport take S1 to tung chung bus terminal"

u could go to HK tourism board at Suntec tower 2, 34 floor
& sup all e brochure/phamplets/maps from there, but they only
open mon to fri, office hours. bring plastic bag else yr wrist going
to hurt. when u going btw?

Depends which part of lantau u are going and where u are going from. If u going from kowloon/hk island to ngong ping, train is faster than ferry.

Public buses also ply from tung chung and ngong ping to tai o.

Anyway thank you and charmander! But if our first stop is the giant buddha, the ferry will still be the fastest right? (from our hotel yau mei tei)

Hi zelldincht,

There's 2 options to get to the giant buddha at ngong ping,

1. Yau ma tei MTR to Tung Chung MTR on trains (u need to transfer once at Lai King MTR). After that, Go to the bus terminus at Tung Chung on foot and look for lantau bus 23 to ngong ping.

2. Yau ma tei MTR to Central MTR, Walk to the outlying ferry piers and board the ferry to Mui Wo, then transfer to lantau bus 2 to to ngong ping.

Option 1 will be faster if u travel from yau ma tei. Option 2 might be faster if u are going from/to hong kong island.

There's also a cable car (the famous ngong ping 360) from tung chung up to ngong ping, but the prices are a little steep. HKD88/98 (mon-sat/sunday)

More info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tian_Ta...blic_transport

Regards, and have a safe trip.

hi ling3bzr,

u may want to spend ur time elsewhere instead of stanley if u are going to spend half a day there. I personally feel that its not worth that half a day unless u cant think of other places to go. Theres a similar to bugis street style of market there, less crowded, and also some pubs and resturants too.

From airport to your hotel,
by bus : A21 (airport coach) alight at 10 stop and walk just a little.
by train : Airport express train to kowloon station followed by Shuttle K1, Get off at Eaton hotel and walk down the street to Largos hotel.

Hi Charmander, thanks for the detailed guide.
Airport express train is a free shuttle service right?
I be there for 6days6nights, is it better to get the Travel Pass with 2 Airport Express Single Journeys, it comes with free 3 days of unlimited travel on certain MTR line.
after 3 days i stilcan top up and use as a normal Octopus card right?

Sorry for asking so much..
