can find but not easy to find. at branded shops very unlikely more likely at those factory outlet. don't expect too much though.

best time imho is during hk sales between july to august. of course that time typhoon season.

Oh boy, when I told them I wanna take the offer. They told me that offer not valid due to system error. Now Im in the midst of looking for hotels. Alot all return no vacancies.

Trying Metropole Metropark, Concourse Metropark. See how it goes man.

What is the best timing to go to The Peak?
Monday to Friday morning will be fine or afternoon after lunch in Central also can...

Go to Grage St in Central and try the best HK Hot Milk Tea in Hong Kong..

Hey old bireds..Ive read about the lonely planet's guide to hong kong... truthfully speaking..Im all the more confused with their transport system. One is KCR..the other MTR then got what AEL...

Can someone here please enlighten...If ive just reached HKIA and wanna go to my hotel (Stanford Mongkok) I should take the MTR to Mong kok and then AEL A21 ? to my hotel right.

Take MTR Airport Express or Taxi or Airport Bus also can depand on u...

If I wanna go Shen Zhen, how should i go about from my hotel le?

Take KCR to Long Wu Station and walk over to ShenZhen...

1 Last question... is the 3 days unlimited rides tourist octopus pass worth the bucks?
Yes IF ONLY u travel a lot there and been for 3 days...

Off? Paiseh.. where do you actually intend to stay ah?

Park Hotel is at Kowloon. About 5 minutes walk to Tsim Sha Tsui MTR / Nathan Road. A block away from Granville Road. Check my thread here for some info. Haven't updated it in a long while though.

to get to shenzhen,
take KCR to luo hu, not long wu (there's not long wu )
from luo hu, walk over to shenzhen loh (it's like our causeway to malaysia)

do note that there's opening hrs for the custom @ shenzhen/luohu

did a check, from http://wikitravel.org/en/Shenzhen
the custom opens from 630am to 12 mn

Yeah... will be staying there as well. It's name is Stanford Mongkok. You might want to check the rates @ www.jetabout.com.sg <Not related with the site> but that's where I booked the rooms from. But will be good if you can email the hotel to see if they can beat the rates quoted from the jetabout website.... last heard..someone managed to get a better deal than mine.
Hi dekko25, i got offered from them HK900 for one double room, exclusive of tax....
I tink they still got rooms... u better check wif them directly if u r still looking for room.

To nottinghill: I rememebred seeing that u had staed wif them b4. How r their rooms? can elaborate more? Thanks... hee hee

I will be going on 14 - 19 Dec....taking jetstar.... Anyone abt the same time going there?
