Not true, KCRC takes you to

yuen long = best wanton mee, desset,

hunghom= best beef noodles,dan dan noodle, whampoa gardens,

shatin= best roast pigeon, snoppy land, new town shopping centre.

kcrc ma on shan line alsotakes you to lei yu mun = seafood

www.kcrc.com.hk

Any idea what's the name & address for the Yuen Long Wanton Mee & dessert & the Shatin Roast Pigeon.

KCR line next to my hotel for my Dec trip!

Hi Charmander.

Thanks for the leads. So If i take the MTR (AEL) to mongkok and take their free shuttle and I will not have to take the cityflyer from the airport to my hotel right?
AEL's free shuttle dosent seem to pass your hotel, check @ http://www.mtr.com.hk/eng/train/ae_compli_e.htm.

Seems that u have to take the CityFlyer A21. If u still insist on using the AEL, i think u might have to transfer at Hong Kong station, and take a train heading towards Mongkok which i dont recommand doing. Well, if u have more than 3 person, u could also consider the taxi.

Not true, KCRC takes you to ..
Yikes, forgot to take that into consideration because i dont usually use the KCR to get to these places.

Looks quite good.

But I think Metropark is not at the same league as Miramar and Kimberly?

If no other choice die die also must take, right?

Am going there in 2 weeks time, staying at Kimberly

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.
Hi I dont know if anyone answered your questions. Just fro my experience:

1. Nov is winter already. Not a good time to shop for clothings.

2. Not sure

3. may or may not be enough depending on how you want to spend. You can always split the cash into various days and ration. If you have saved some cash through the days, you could spend all in one good good meal. We spent several hundreds at one go for a single meal.. hehe

Hi Charmander, can anyone just board the AEL's free shuttle from the airport? It says we need to be Airport Express Customer? I am going to stay at Marco Polo Gateway in mid Nov and the agent mentioned that transferred is included, is this the free shuttle they are implyinh?

AEL's free shuttle operates from Kowloon Station and HongKong station itself, and not directly from the airport, and this is not the free shuttle ur agent is implying. U should receive some vouchers or some receipt to show to the airport transfer coach companies in x-change for a ride.
