Is TST more convient than Mongkok in terms of to and fro from airport and the surround areas or shopping and food?
any recommended hostel in TST?
How to Shenzhen from TST?
Mongkok is only a short distance from TST so not much difference. Food in TST is higher due to higher rentals.

Shopping like food can find everywhere. The question is what are you shopping for?

In Mongkok can go to Langham Place, Ladies' market. Short distance by MTR to Temple st and Sham Shui Po market.

Honestly i tell u, in Hong Kong theres nth called convient to the airport, its almost the same everywhere, just find a place within your budget and within a shopping district if u like to shop. e.g Mongkok.
Distance between mongkok and tst is 2 mtr stations away, i'll let u decide if thats short or nt.

If u are concerned about how to get to airport, the whole stretch from Mongkok to TST is served by A21 airport coach, so its not a problem to and fro the airport.

If fact if you want to work. It will take you around 30min if you do not stop by to do other shopping.

I walk a few time this way already. Is quite ok especially weather is not hot.

In fact, if you compare shopping. MongKok is the best. For Cheap to Expeansive. TST is more on expensive items.

Dragon Inn or Ah Shan hostel is almost the same but location is diff

Dragon Inn or Ah Shan hostel are under hostel and they are small and crampy for 4 people.

Hong Kong Airport express -> Kowloon Station around 30 mins + 12 mins waitting for the Express Train = Total Time Taken

Airport Express Bus should be 45mins-1hour++ + bus waiting time + Traffic Jam = Total Time Taken

Approx 50mins to 1 hour if u are staying in TST.

dekko25, actually it depends, if u are looking for latest fashion etc etc, then u just missed the non winter season clothes, if u dun mind of the old stocks, its the best time to get them because they sell non winter clothing in winter cheaper

Weather is about...25+ *C in the day, may shoot up to 30 if wind blows in hotter air towards hk
I hate Hotter win blow toward HK and then next thing you know no wind..

Mati liao, you become oven hot. Dun worry HK weather is getter better and better each day toward Dec...

Airport Express tickets:

We bought a set of 4 tickets (just tell them there're 4 of us) and we noticed its total cost is lower than the cost of 4 individual tickets.

Good to take note, if you're travelling in a group.
Single Trip Tickets

1 pax = HK$100

3 pax = HK$ 70 each

Nah, Cityflyer planned its routes so most of the time it
will not run into any serious jam situation, so its safe to say there should nt be jams on any of the routes UNLESS 1. someone having protest, this one hard to say, could close down the entire road, and 2. traffic accident. anyway this two dosent happen frequently, unless really suay den nth to say.

Firstly ggspot, try not to reply and quote everything in a new post, combine them. It makes this thread very hard to read for ppl who wants to go HK.

As i said, Cityflyer coaches are made to serve ppl going to the airport, so its planned such that all congestable areas will be avoided.

Hong Kong Airport express -> Kowloon Station around 30 mins + 12 mins waitting for the Express Train = Total Time Taken

Airport Express Bus should be 45mins-1hour++ + bus waiting time + Traffic Jam = Total Time Taken
I dont really agree on this, Cityflyer coaches will stop at most 2 streets away from most major hotels, unlike AE trains, which u might need to make a transfer on free shuttles OR a MTR ride to the AE station. So if u are taking the AE trains, u have to wait 2 times for firstly a free shuttle, and secondly the train. Also, not all hotels are served by the free shuttle or near an MTR station.
