anyone book from AsiaTravel b4?
Ya book b4. No problem.

Pyotravel.com and wotif.com also used b4. wotif can be the cheapest but must pay by credit card upfront and no cancellation allow.

IMHO, not worth the trip if u gonna go down all the way just for stanley market/repulse bay...

Unless u are visiting Ocean Park and realise u have extra time in the evening, can drop by since its just a bit further down more. Btw, there is a very nice view of the whole area from the Ocean Park cable car as well.
agree. the beaches are pathetic. if u just wanna take a peep, can take a feeder bus from the interchange. goes up the hill, and comes down. can see the nice houses owned by the rich people.

stanley market is just another pasar malam. not cheap at all

Can try Metropark Macau (fr S$89) for hotel. (Hostel-no idea)

For cheap & good, can stay in Zhuhai and cross over to Macau as hotel there is cheap.

thank you so much..

do u guys book yr HK hotel thru' Asiaroom etc? anyone book from AsiaTravel b4?
Yup, I booked from http://asiatravel.com/hongkong.html 2 times and both were okay, their rates are the cheapest and you don't need to pay upfront, just print out the receipt and pay at the hotel.

Hotel rates from S$30-40 for 3 star around Zhuhai-Macau border which is Gongbei.

Macau and Zhuhai is just a wall separating the two cities. Most of the tourist things such as hotels, food and shopping are just after the border. Eaten good tim sum and seafood at a fraction of hk prices in good class restaurant there.

Macau city center is just 10-15 min bus/cab ride to the border. Cab in macau is cheaper than hk & zhuhai is cheaper than macau! Moreover from hk can take ferry to Zhuhai instead of Macau.

Hi Jataro,

Do you have any names for these hotels at gongbei area?
checked on asiatravel and pyo abt $80.

And,

Can I check is this the only way to get to Zhuhai from HongKong?

All ferries do charge for luggage?
China Ferry Terminal means the one at Tsimshstsui right?

Many thanks

I think pyo and asiatravel don't have 2 & 3 star hotels. Can't remember the hotel names. If not going on weekends and holiday, can book there if you just want simple lodging. Can try this website:
http://www.chinahotelsreservation.co.../Hotels_2.html

Yes for ferry this is the only way from HK to ZH.

Don't worry, no charge for luaggage.

Yes China F Terminal is at TST, habout city there.
