Yes they do, but only for city areas then the map will cover...

I juz booked a 5d4n f&e trip to hongkong I pay $620 for the package. Is the price resonable? I will be going in mid nov.

I have read up some of the posting regarding the places to go and some nice place to eat but i still have some questions hope some of you can help me out.

1) As I'm going in mid Nov, will I be able to find clothings for singapore weather at the warehouse or shopping centers?

2) If I intend to spend from morning till maybe 2-3pm at the ocean park is that sufficient? Cos I have fren saying that's not enough and say I should stay until the park close at 6pm.

3) How much cash should i change? (Is SGD$500 enough?)

Think i will post my plan for the trip in the next few days hope u guys can give me some advice on it. Thanks.

2) You might miss some shows if you stay until only 2-3pm. Give youself a bit more time. Relax, you're on vacation.

3) How much you bring really depends how much you want to spend and how well you want to eat (hey, if you are not spending money on eating good stuff in HK, there's no point going). I brought along $3k for 4d3n and still have to sign $1k to my credit card. Well, at least the wife and I are satisfied.

Good lord, I won't touch United again.
My flight was delayed by 40 min because the onboard computer broke down and they had to borrow 1 from SIA.

On top of that, their economy section was really cramped. (United has a economy plus section which is better (but this is the equivalent of economy class in CX or SIA).

hmm the hotel that i book its very out of the way its Mexan Harbour Hotel at Tsing Yi. Initially thought of changing to majastic but it will cost me another $160 to me i feel I rather spend on some other stuff.

Not sure with Dorsett Olympic but the location its quite alright.

It's really way out. Smack right the middle of a ?shipyard/container yard.
If you like the night life, it's not worth it because then you'll have to go back by cab.
