Hmm, i think u just take those bus there, if there's no jam or whatsoever, then u should reach repluse bay in around 15 to 20mins. 260 will be slightly faster as it dosent stop at wan chai, but cost slight more. Btw, in Hong Kong, most of the people do not board buses at terminus unless it is absolutely necessary to do so or it is nearer. But anyway yes, it operates from Exchange Square ("near" Central) MTR. Or if u see a stop with this services, just look at the destination display and u might want to board from there. Cab roughly cost $40~60
Hi, The cab cost is hk$40-60? What would be the cost for bus? Since there are 3 of us, might be cheaper to take a bus

Erm... Some more questions if u dun mind

For Fa Yuen Street, Ladies Street, Temple street, typically, how long is the street? Will need to spend how much time @ each area?

Clarity, I feel that you are trying too hard to squeeze everything into your trip.
Try to relax. It's good to have an itinery buy your programme seems more like a school timetable . Relax, have fun. If a place appeals to you or your friends, just stay on and drop the others. There's always next time.

Ya it should be around $40 to $60 per way, bus cost $8.40 to $10.20 for the towards trip and $5+ for the return trip. I suggest u take a bus, and sit on the level 2 right infront of the wind screen =) exciting!

The street can be quite long if u walk the entire stretch 1km ~ 2km? around there i guess. and there are stalls on both left, right and center of the street, so u might have to walk a few times up and down if u want to cover everything.

Anyway, make sure u have time to Eat, the last time i bought some friends there we went so many places that we had so little time to eat.

2 hours per street depends on people ba, that time i gave my buddys 4 hours for the whole area, end up walking 2 hour up and down the street buying nothing, and went langham place eat instead -.-"

Missing bus stops are quite a problem, just take a cab as and when u need to but try to refrain from doing that as cabbing issnt cheap. U can have a look of repulse bay thru google, and then u'll know when to get off the bus. Major landmarks is a super long stretch of beach, backgrounded with a building with a squarish hole.

Arrow good news



昂坪纜車昨進行試搭,通車過程大致順利。若一連7日的試搭順利,纜車有望於「十一」黃金周前啟用。

If you are to look @ www.ygdragon.net, you'll come into conclusion that cams & lenses are damn cheap.

I'm tempted to get a 350D Kit @ HK$4800. At 4.9HK$ per SG$, that's only $979.50. How much is this stuff selling in COMEX again?

Cheap hor?

:Later,
