Well it depends on what you buy.
HK has one of the best and cheapest music store in the South Asia - Tom Lee.
Can be S$400 to 500 cheaper for a $2k+ music instrument/equipment compared to Singapore.
kk i'm refering to those pasar malam stuff like clothes, bags, accessories
shenzhen is cheaper

Sanva. But they are under renovation. only non A/C rooms are available. Also gotta use communal toilets. HKD80/nite. The location is very good though.

May have changed now but couple of years ago they had a stand with brochures and map left outside the office. Anyway no big deal. Can easily can map from the concierge in your hotel. Brochures and stuff can pick up at the HK tourism board offices in HK. There's one located at the Sterry Ferry Terminal at Tsim Sha Tsui. Virtually all info can find on the hK tourism website. There's one section to download in pdf format various walks you can take. Very useful.

Just curious.

Is there any major difference if I were to fly to ShenZhen then to Hong Kong instead of Hong Kong directly?

Secondly, how was the Ngong Ping Skyrail Experience? Is it worth the travelling time provided its free?

you can get map and info at the HKIA when you exit out from custom and got your baggage there a counter on HKIA exit A & B of the HKTB.

Please do look out for it if you had miss them.

NP360
Tip - very crowded on weekends and PH. My waiting time was about 1 hr (on a Friday before X'mas). Can ask for standing room only (ie you don't get to sit, just stand all the way for the ride) -> jump queue. (it's called "kay piu" - standing ticket).

Ride - initial impression : very nice scenery
After 10 min : when will the ride end??

NP village : Nothing very much to do. Shop, eat, photos and video presentation. Unfortunately, having been to HK Disneyland, the presentations are nothing to shout about (and was in fact quite boring) (compared to the interactive "Stitch" presentation).

Food standard - not that good compared to what you get elsewhere.

Can go to the big Buddha after this and have some vegetarian snacks/bean curd which are actually not bad.
