China made stuff are cheaper. Imported or brand sames could be same or more expensive depending.

In some cases better to purchase here cos of warranty issue. Unless price difference a lot.

hwaa, exchange rate had been dropping from S$1 = HK$4.8 from last year rates.

This year exchange rates.

S$1 = HK$5 or 5.12

You judge, instead RMB is climbing up!!

The express rides can be used on separate days eg. arriving HK day 1 (use it from airport to HK Island); departing HK day x (use it from HK Island to airport).

The 3-day unlimited MTR rides starts imediately when you enter the MTR eg. HK day 2 9am - you took your first ride on MTR. it ends HK day 5 8.59am.

Go online to buy at HK$285 (i.e. pay credit card and collect at the octopus counter at airport). Alternatively, Cathay Pacific may have the same discount as in-flight shop.

I will be dropping by HK from ShenZhen for 1 night stay.

My plans are :
- Reach HK around noon on Sat.
- Take MTR to Tong Chung for Ngong Ping ride and Lantau Island
- Is there a big shopping area in Tsing Yi?

Sunday morning
- My flight is at 6 so am expecting to leave for the airport around 3pm. Any good places to go in the morning?

Thanks for any help given.

for me i jus bought the one way AE .. took to kowloon and take the free shuttle to jordan and walked to my hotel. one way AE cost ard hkd 140. u might not need the AE on yr way back coz u might haf too many bags will will be quite troublesome for u to take AE. thats what i tink la. gotta depends on what time if your flight back, if your flight back hits the peak hour, i suggest u take a cab to airport bah ...

coz i had a shock when i took a mtr once at Admiralty station during the peak hour, WOW had to wait for a few trains then can board.
