Hi all, anyone interested in booking RaiLei Hotel? It's a highly recommended hotel due to location n price.

The rate I get from the lady boss is HKD70 cheaper than a 179website. But the only problem is we need to pay the deposit to their HSBC account in Hongkong. Currently I'm planning to pay thru my citibank which have a $30 flat fee charges.

So anyone interested to share the cost, we can pay the deposit together. Email me at ngoost@yahoo.com.sg to discuss ya.

*pardon me if this is not allow in the forum.

The toru guide will ask you to pay HK$50 per person at the end of tour anyway.
Also along the way, lots of etra $ etc. Those land tour package in HK really all out to kill!
Can U advise, beside HK$50 for tips, along the way, what additional $ do we need waste for city tours?

Thank You

Beware of those Chinese Herb/Medical shop which they will bring you during City Tours.
They will offer you FREE medical checkup, once you go and see the doctor, after see doc, before you know it, they grind all the herbs for you already for you to buy. Since all mixed, you have no choice but to buy those over priced herbs which you might not even know what it contains. My 1st trip to HK, I kana these and firstly I refuse but they make so much hooha there.. paiseh so bo bian pay for it. Close to S$80 damange there.

Seen at other forums that if you claim never bring $, they will go all the way to your hotel to collect $....

Just dun go into the Herbal shop even if got lots of *Fake* freebies....

Not the Star Ferry side, the terminal to Macau is at the far end.
