>> 10am - Visit to Lantau Island.
Ngong Ping 360 Skyrail
Shopping & Lunch @ Citygate (Tung Chung MTR)
5pm – Yip Fat Factory Building (Kwun Tong MTR)

Ngong Ping 360 is a very boring ride (yes view not bad but still gets boring after 5 min; 20 to 25 min ride stuck with ~15 other strangers). Nothing much to do at the Ngong Ping Village (Buddha's walk (10min) and Monkey Tales (5 min) are very short presetations. Just look see, eat and take photo only. Can walk up to the bid Buddha if you wish.

On the other hand, depending on the crowd situtation, to arrive at 10am and be back by 12noon for lunch at Citygate is a little optimistic. Queues can be long 30 to 45 min on weekends. Add that to the ride timing, multiply it 2 ways and you can see why.

If I had to choose, I'll go Citygate instead of Ngong Ping.

IMHO, not an essential visit.
Thanks for the advise. Anyway mine is a free trip included, will see how. Thanks

Sorry what I meant was booking the ferry tickets on Day 3 and go on Day 4. Intending to book the ticket to go at 12pm and come back at 8.30pm.

Not really sure how long should I spend at Macau. Just wanna go Senado Square & Red Market for some shopping. Buy some lao gong, lao po cookie, Lord Stow Egg Tart and try the Portugese food there. Then look look see see at the Sands Casino or Casino Lisboa and nearby theme park.

What do you think?

3) Both of the hotels have wireless broadband internet services but do I need to pay for it?

Yes most of the wireless access point in Hong Kong & Hotels you need to pay for it.

Your Itinerary, is quite mash up... Going to North at one point then sudden go south then back to north again.

The pastries you buy is quite wrong also. some pasteries are good in Hong Kong & Some pastries are good in Macau only!!

Did you dare or willing to try Krispy Kreme in Hong Kong?

The fares you paid in total is after taxes or without taxes? How are you going to the city from the airport? Going alone or with your wife or gf?
