For dorsett seaview. i will recommend you to do a direct hotel reservation. I suppose it will be a lil cheaper than the rates you have published. I did a check on the website. It stated SGD82 per room per night for standard room. Add additional 10% service charge, and 3% tax. Ard 92+SGD per night.

And of course booking with hotel, more secured i supposed.. haha

jsut my 2 cents

I'm planning to get a tour agency to Lantau for one day tour. Anyone can recommend which tour agency should i join?

Is it possible for me to explore myself in Lantau Island? Is it hard to find transport to Mui Wo, Cheung Sha, Big Buddha, Po Lin Monetary, Tai O & Ngong Ping Skyrail?

HK Expert, please advice whether should i join those HK tour or explore myself?

Thanks..

just explore urself... HK is pretty much like Sg... juz come back last Monday... HK is god damp HOT now... For those going soon, go buy some Sun block lotion... My gf and I become very tan after 1 day in disneyland...

if u do not have airport transfer, you can try the new promotion... HKD300 including 2 way airport express train, 3 day free MTR passes... we miss out on the promotion... when u reach the airport, remember to get the discount booklet... lots of discount vochour there... example, HKD5 off for express train between HK island to disneyland..

the skyrail open today... but take at ur own risk... last sat, during the trial run, the whole rail system stop becaz of a cable car jam before entering the station and the behind cable car almost ramp onto the front... some trial users was trap on the cable car for 1hr...

if u wanna get day tour, get in in HK. I saw the hotel helpdesk booking for Chang Chou island going at HKD$50 its a lot cheaper.

For Lantau island, its ez to navigate and get there using MTR. So its ok to go on ur own. Esp. now a lot of the people can speak Chinese and English too.

For the Ngong Ping 360 cable car, i remember that the original date of 24th June is cancelled and now held off indefinitely to rectify the problem. You can drop the HK tourism board an email and they can answer u (they are very efficient. replied my email in 1/2 a day).

dolphingalgal, Lantau island is way bigger than Singapore or HK Island, mainly mountainous, thus transport issnt that convient. Unless someone here has visited all those places (Mui Wo, Cheung Sha, Big Buddha, Po Lin Monetary, Tai O) by themself in this forum, and have some experience to share, i strongly do not suggest u to travel to these places alone via public tpt/taxi.

Anyway, do check out some Lantau tour itenary here, but seems rather pricy.

After u add up the taxes would ard 100+ also. Ya i agreed that book with hotel is more secured however, i had booked thr with octopus travel b4, so far i find that it is reliable and also this website is recommended by one of the mag that i had read. Hmm.. Anyway i will consider booking thr direct or by octopus travel.

Cheers

Nope, the octupus tourist is fixed at 3 days free MTR train rides and 2 way AE train. There's also a $20 credit for other transport on the card. Anyway, i doubt u will wan to travel anywhere on day 1 or day 4? And, the 3 days free rides only start from the first day u take a MRT train.
