Boarding is at the airport's ground transportation center, which is accessible from both T1 and T2. Just follow the signs. You might want to purchase a octopus card before u board the bus.

Actually, it dosent really matter because all arrivals will be done in T1. This means T2 is purely for departure.
Thanks thanks!

One more thing to confirm.
If I want to go to Citygate straight from the airport, I take S1 service right?
And are the factory outlets there open on Saturdays?

Hi all.....


I'm back from Hong Kong...
Thank you all for the useful information!

What i want to say is:
Hong kong weather is HOT!!!!! And need strong leg power!
Please train yourself walking under the sun in Singapore if you are going in these few days...

Please take note:
恆香老餅家 旺角彌敦道605A號新興大廈地下G5 A舖, the address is WRONG!!!
I search up and down for this add end up can't find the shop.
The shop had being shifted few shops further.... (sorry i didn't note down the shop no.), try walk further.... is a very small shop...... you can see the signboard.
The Lao Poh Ping is nice, big and not so sweet. Tried Wing Wah one also, their one is small and very sweet, but with individual packing.....

Hi All,

Just booked my trip to Macau/HK, November 1-5....

Took Tiger Air offer for 4 cents per tix heh to Macau airport... end up plus insurance is SGD436.16 for me and me mom... found this bit simply staggering for airfare price...

Used Zuji.com.sg to book 2 nights in HK (Prudential) and 2 nights in Macau (MGM Grand). Power of Internet heh! Since haven't actually stayed cannot confirm that all will go well but so far price and e-voucher looks good heh...

Quite excited to go so maybe will ask the resident gurus for comments after compiled/posted my itinerary. So far this thread and the information in the forum is amazing.... but need to do a lot of 'data mining' lol....

In general we aiming to enjoy more.... not hardcore shopping....

For myself I looking for Gundam toys (ready built), Transformers, Macross Frontier (hope is out by then), etc.... A big shout out and thanks to all those who posted here.... great help to me!
