Just back from Hong Kong, wanna share my experience...

Shopping: Did most of our shopping at Ladies' Street & TST. As for the boutiques, found them to be abt the same price as SIN, tho the variety was definitely there

Symphony of Lights: Not bad, gd thing I was there slightly earlier, interesting show

CityGate: Factory outlet prices were good, but I thought the range was a little limited at Adidas and Nike outlets. Overall, managed to keep us occupied for a while at other shops

Moving around HKG: We bought the Octopus Card, very convenient. Impressed by the Airport Express train, v fast and comfortable

Disney: Not much to say, as expected, it's Disney after all though I found it a little small

Food: Sweet Dynasty didn't turn out as good as I thought, maybe it's the hype surrounding it. The Shu Liu Shan drinks were superb, I think we drank abt 5 each in 2 days!

Accomodation: 1st night - I'll refrain from posting details in this thread, suffice to say that when one does business, expectations management & transparency are key. PM me for details if any of you would like to know more. I leave it as inexperience on seller's part in this case. 2nd night at Disney Hollywood Hotel, for abt $250, was excellent on its own.

Overall, short but sweet, gd trip!

Hi Takuyazzz,

1) Are you refer to Star Ferry?

2) At 8pm you will see Symphony of Lights. Best place to see will be at Marco Polo Hotel Hong Kong Carpark.

1) not sure if it's star ferry, cos 3 years ago when i went there, i remember taking a boat ride which took me around the harbour which allowed us to view the jumbo restarant amongst others...

does it ring a bell?

2) so how do i get to avenue of the stars? MTR station?

You are confusing Victoria Harbour (where Star Ferry is) with Aberdeen Harbour (where Jumbo Floating Restaurant is).

The most obvious thing to do is to admire the view. The 2nd most obvious thing to do is to take photos. The 3rd most obvious thing when in TST - SHOP! (qqspot actually gave you a clue by mentioning SOGO).
