Thanks for the tip! Then can scale down budget liao, not into restaurants too much, prefer the littler eateries like you mentioned.

btw, for bargaining at places like Ladies Street or Temple Street, how far can we go? Bangkok bargain style?
Hi Lightfinger, you can go Central to try the famous Lam Fong Yuen at Gage Street of Hot Stocking Milk Tea.
More like our Teh Tarik but very different taste.

For Ladies Street or Temple Street, most your can go for is 45% MAX!! If not you will kana like what lowjk said!!

Regards,
QQ

hmmm.... i pay a $704 per pax by just going for a 4 day 3 nights. :L

but not hostel... wonder how much difference in staying in a hostel and hotel.
Hi Tenz1204, difference in staying in a hostel and hotel.

Price vs Comfortable

You will save at least S$100 to S$200 on the price difference.

Comfortable
Is depands on each person need like the size of the bed and room & etc...

Hi blkhoo1234, really wondering why are you flying by Tiger Airway? Unless you planning to visit Macau for a night or 2? Are you aware that Tiger Airway at Budget Terminal with no alocated seats?
Have to agree with qq.
Going to Macau then to HK incurs hidden costs of transport.
In addition, Tiger Airways has terrible timing.
You either land in Macau after midnight (and pay a higher charge for the ferry) and reach your hotel/hostel in the wee hours of the morning OR land in the late afternoon (either 3pm or 7pm). By the time you reach the hotel, the first day is almost over.

Jetstar Asia is a much better choice for a budget airline; with the flight leaving as early as 6.45am, you can arrive in HK in time for a slight late lunch.

1) You will miss the sale. you can check the exact dates at www.discoverhongkong.com
but in 2006 it ran from ~ July to Aug

2) End of spring/Early summer. Typhoon season.

3) MetroPark is a 3* and Royal Plaza is 5*. Depends on whether you want the extra comfort and facilities. Just like how some people can get by with a Toyota while others want a BMW (I'm an enigma - drive a Toyota but chose Royal Plaza).

Royal Plaza is good in that there is a Cafe De Coral & Maxim in the shopping centre next to it. Perfect for breakfast.

hello papaho, All the major department stores as well as shops in many of the huge shopping complexes hold sales at this time, with prices discounted about 40%. There is also a summer sale, usually in June or July, as well as end-of-season sales in the early spring and early autumn.

Please visit ---> http://www.hktb.com/hksf/eng/overvie...troduction.jsp

Just to confirm, you're talking about the Royal Plaza (not the Royal Pacific).
No it is not beside the Mongkok MTR, you need to walk about 5-7 minutes (on the overhead bridge) to the station.
It is however, just next to the Mongkok KCR line.
It is also just next to Century Square/Plaza, a 6 story medium range shopping complex. Also has several restaurants.

If you want a MTR station right next to the hotel in Mongkok, take a look at Langham Place.

thanks for the info. you're right i was talking about royal plaza. Btw, is the KCR line linked to the MTR or is it a separate line?

I had to agree with lowjk, Langham Place is one of the best hotel i ever stayed. Shopping malls and tons of shops around. Very crowed if you do not like crowds.

I wonder why most of the tourist like to stay at Mongkok area or TST?

Hello all,

Was so glad tat i saw tis forum cos there's so much info tat i can tk note for 4 my HK trip in May! Hooray~

Had paid $498 for e 4 day 3 nite trip. Guess it's cheap cos my hotel was not very convenient - Mexan Harbour Hotel.

I've read from here abt Yip Fatt Building & Citigate, both factory outlets. Which one is better huh? Wanted to go Yip Fatt Building but thought was rather out of the way, so if Citigate stuffs r abt e same as the Yip Fatt Building, thought of skiping it then.

Could advise mi?

Thanz alot~
