Hi all,

Anyone has any suggestions on shopping malls/places (that sells at reasonable price) that is linked to the MTR stations (like what we have here in Singapore where you won't get wet even if it pouring heavily outside as it interlinks to the the MRT station)

See, had planned to visit Disneyland, Ocean Park, Lantau Island (with a child and also the reason for this trip) but in view of the current weather, visitng this places may not be wise (as the parks might not operate in full, dangerous to take Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car), thus, I may have to change my itinerary to shopping instead of sightseeing/park visits.. Haiz............

Know this is a short notice but we're flying tomorow..... hopefully in time to make the draft out of those suggestions/advice from you guys.

Lastly, hope weather gong-gong is good to us when we arrive....:o

can pay cash when boarding.
HKD 33 iirc.

Otherwise, can buy octopus card at the small corner in the airport express side.
Think was HKD150 inclusive of some deposit.

;)

thanks. do i need to have exact change?

i don't intend to buy octopus card as it won't be worth it for me. thanks

yes u do need to have exact change.

However, i dont see why its not worth to get the octopus card. Train trips are cheaper, and u get much convience. cost: hkd$50 deposit ($43 refundable, $7 admin charge for returning within 3 months from date of issue)

Do consider it.

thanks for your reply. actually i won't be going to faraway places...probably not even crossing the seas. Since i won't be taking the airport train, is there a lower value card i can get? i'll be there for 4 days

oh wow, enjoy yr trip man!! guess it's yr 1st also....
maybe can share how it goes when u return...bon voyage !!:s12::s12:


yo thanks for your concern but luckily we did not encounter any bad weather (just slight rain) when we were there!

We went to the lantau island the day after the flood and its perfectly fine!

Oh just one friendly reminder for those going Ocean park pls PLS DRESS LIGHTLY!

ITS FREAKING HOT AND HUMID OVER THERE!


One more thing, theres a 10 percent discount offer between ocean park and ngong ping 360 until 30th Sept 2008 - when you show the ticket for the other. (Hence more worth it to go Ngongping (58-88 HKD) first then get the 10 percent discount on Ocean park (175-200HKD).

One ticket for one discount, so pls keep all your tickets!

Another thing theres also group discount for airport express train. IIRC its 60HKD each for a group of 4 for single trip. I didnt see anything on this on the webby so pls rmb to check with the counter when you are buying the tickets!

Can try City Gate.. the giordano very cheap.. i just came back from Hong Kong on Sunday.. got 2 Giordano jeans.. cost me only total less than $40 SGD..

If interested in Adidas.. City Gate also have.. but best to go to the stretch of shops along Fa Yuen street.. more choices. cheaper..

For branded bags like Agnes B, Gucci, LV, Anna Sui, etc.. .. can go Times Square.. :)
