1. Computer/electronics
2. Market (like temple, ladies st) but smaller and supposed to be cheaper
3. Girls (as in those you hire)

Yes, Mid-Level escalator is @ Central IIRC

Yung Kee is famous, but I've got no idea where it is...

taku:

yipfatt only 2 hr? i think need to walk fast then. stuff in yip fatt are not tt well organized. the last time i went, went to top floor. then walk down from top floor passing by each floor to see if there's warehouse sale. not every floor have stuff for sale.

iirc, the night market closes at ard 12am earliest.

after symphony, u might wanna go lan gui fang for clubbing or experience the pubbing lifestyle there

u should go peak during late afternoon/evening time
preferably not during wk end (the queue will kill u)
or if u go during wkend, can buy the tickets to mdm tusards wax museum to 'jump' the queue.
why go during late afternoon? so u can see hk in the daylight and go for dinner, then see hk in night where all the lights are on

repulse bay take 260 from central and 260 back. prepare youself for a roller coaster ride of your life (you'll understand when u take the bus) you can also take bus no. 6, 6A, 6X, 66, 260 from Central. but frankly speaking, i think nothing too much to rant abt in repulse bay. while in repulse, make sure to go to the mazu temple (which was recently newly renovated)

since u are @ repulse bay, u might wanna go down to stanley market (which is further down, ard 1/2 hour bus ride) and shop there (the stuff are quite ex there actually) beware that stanley closes @ 7pm which is very early

if u go to the golden flower, should go in the morning to witness the flag raising ceremony(7:50am - 8:03am Performed by five Police officers wearing the normal police uniform, and broadcast of National Anthem. Catch the official, daily flag raising at the Golden Bauhinia Square located outside the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre. Take the MTR to Wan Chai Station, leaving from the A1 Exit. Walk across the footbridge, head right and through the lobby of Central Plaza, continue on across the connecting overhead walkway, then descend to ground level. Head towards the waterfront ahead, and you will find the statue and monument on the left.)

wong tai sin - went there for lunch the other time (vegetarian). 4 dishes for HKD100 only and trust me, you can't finish it, there's so much dishes. advice is not to take too much rice first(rice is self service). paid HKD120 as read in the temple that the money goes to charity

u might wanna skip some of your mongkok night shopping and go jalan in TST all the way to mongkok, the whole road, nathan road, is littered with shops and ppl in night. (even at midnight, u can see lots of ppl walking along nathan

while in TST, do go to penisular hotel just to take a look

back to airport: why take cab? cab might jam, take MTR and be certain that there's no jam (however, have to see if clash with peak, cause clash with peak, very troublesome to bring luggage to take MTR) cab to airport should be ard 300HKD one way (IIRC), taking airport express (2 way to tsing yi) is less than 200HKD/pax 2 ways (check MTR website for exact price) the pros of taking airport express is no need to scared got traffic jam.

i went hk for 10 days(-3 days for shenzhen and macau, left 7 days) and thus had the opportunity to jalan much more places
above information are all based in 2006 dec when i went to hk, u might wanna double confirm that it's still valid now
