Day 1 - That means you will arrive at your hotel ~ 4pm.
Will take about 35 to 40 min to get to Citigate from Wanchai via MTR.
(the above is for your planning).
ps - Cafe Rendezous in the building next to Citigate/MTR station serves good and cheap food. (Zi Char stalls in SIngapore should be grateful that they are not operating in SIngapore - S$8 for prawn noodles with big fresh juicy prawns).

Day 4 - Book your tickets via credit card if possible. Bring the same card and collect your tix at the vending machine there. No queue for me at the vending machine even on Christmas Eve 2006, on a Sunday, at HK Disneyland.

Hi bro n sis,

would like to chk whether
1) is those goods that the factory outlet that been posted in this tread authentic one??? meaning are they water goods???If not how can be selling so cheaply??? Wondering if anyone noe would there be any good discount lately at the factory outlets at i be flying over next week...

2) New Territories is in Hk right? If i wanted to go to New Territories do i need to bring passport or sth like that?

3) Do your usually leave ur passport in the hotel room? Is it safe?
eh, DONT go out into the streets without any form of identification, its a law in HK that everyone have to bring their HK resident cards or passports/photocopy of passport/some form of identification for visitors. HK police do perform spot checks on the streets if they find suspicious characters.

Its a good practice to keep a photocopied passport(the page with the photo) somewhere safe, in case the passport gets lost.

Answer Below:

1) Depends what you want to buy or what you after? Some or mostly are from Factory EOL/Not QC products.

2) New Territories is confirm at Hog Kong. You can go http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Territories
If you do not believe me.

If i wanted to go to New Territories do i need to bring passport or sth like that?
No need, you are still in/within Hong Kong. Is quite safe in Hong Kong, something like Singapore.

3) It will be depands on you. Most of the Hotels rooms are quite safe. Some hotels will have a SAFE in the room or you can let the counter staff to keep your passprot for safekeeping.

huat08, bon voyage...
I hope all the answers, able to help you on your Hong Kong trip.

If i can recall last year, i even got spot check by the Hong Kong police once.
They will ask you where you going and etc. I show them my Singapore IC, and they just let me go.
Dun worry they will not check your bags, like Singapore MRT do. Unless you really look like terrorist. Just replied to them here for hoilday in cantonese.

Actually, you can just bring your Singapore IC will do to show some proof or form of ID for visitors. Or you may want to photocopy your passport like what CharmanderWong said.

Unless, you are going to Macau, Shen Zhen, Zhu Hai, Mainland China or leave the Country (Hong Kong). Then please kindly bring the passport along with you.

If i am not wrong they also have a tourist hotline enquries in Hong Kong. By the HKTB, i just cannot remember the hotline, but i used to call them when i got lost in Hong Kong.
If i am not wrong HKTB hotline can be found on HKTB leaflets.
Please take note the hotline only open on daily working hours.

Answers:

1) Going Hong Kong alone is safe as Singapore. But just do not flash you money on the streets. A plus point if you know how to speak cantonese.

Is not possible to cover HK with 5D4N, but is it only possible to cover with Hong Kong tourist attraction. Can be found at http://www.discoverhongkong.com/
Hong Kong had 1,104 square kilometres (had less than 25% is developed).
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hong_Kong#Geography

2) iso9003drx, is depands on your personal budget. A simple meal at Kopitiam (cha chang ting) in HK will cost you HK$20+. Unless you will like to try street foods (Ta Pai Tong) usualy cost you HK$10+ (without drinks).
Resturant avg bill will start from HK$100+
I hope this is a benchmark guide for you...
For me, 5D4N in HK for HK$500 will only cover my 2 return airport express & transports. FYGI (For Your Gudie Lines

HWZ HKT..H wiki = Label Cut
What universe mean was thoese clothes you saw/bought was direct/original from the OEM factories/direct factories.
They are not QC/fail QC or out source or OEM clothes/products.

Example below:
Means, If you bought a LV Bag from Orchard road. You paid S$5000+
If you bought a LV Bag from the Factory outlets or warehouse you paid 5% - 60% less then you bought from Orchard Road, BUT WITHOUT THE LV TAG/LABEL!!

Everything is the same but just the label tag had been cut off.
