Another qns, is Zhu Hai a MUST to go? I dun think there's any time slot for this leh...
And how do I go to Venetian Macao Casino, Senado Square, Ruins of St Paul and Macau Tower in Macau? Are they close to each other?

Senado Sq and Ruins of St Paul are very close. As for macau tower and venetian, could be slightly further. but taking cab in macau is very cheap! dun need save on cab fare. :s13:

Hi...

Tai Yuen Street is in wan chai and selling toys ( for / men young people / kids ...etc )... Fa Yuen street is at Prince Edward ( Mong Kok )... they are selling something like Basar Malam...... but of course the things they are selling there is different.

Thanks for your info! I think I will go to both areas. I am looking for toys such as HAMTARO..think shouldnt be a problem finding them at Ta Yuen Street :s12:

Hi, here's my Hong Kong Trip Itinerary

Saturday
Arrive at Hong Kong International Airport
Take Bus No A21 to Cityview Hotel
Check in Hotel
Lunch at nearby restaurant
F&E at nearby places (Ladies Street, Mongkok Street)
Tsim Sha Tsui - Symphony of Lights (8pm)
Avenue of Stars

Sunday
Breakfast
Repulse Bay (Central MTR)
Shopping Time at Citygate (Tung Chung MTR)

Monday
Breakfast
Ocean Park (Admiralty MTR)
Shopping at Fa Yuen Street (Wan Chai MTR)

Tuesday
Breakfast
Disneyland

Wednesday
Macau
Senado Square & Ruins of St Paul
Venetian Casino
Macau Fishermen’s Wharf

The Peak (Central MTR)

Friday
Ngong Ping 360
Lantau Island (Chung Tung MTR)
Shopping at Citygate again (if time allows)

Saturday
Last minute shopping



Its a waste of time to go Symphony of Lights.. for my personal opinion, u can actually skip tt. the peak try to go in during the sunset timing.. the view is fantastic!!!.. for macau don miss out the "black sand beach" but check up the low tide.. go during the low tide is advisable. Remember to head down to H&M and New town mall for shopping in HK.. you can also walk along TST for shopping

well i sorta disagree. if u have never seen it, i think its still worth it as its free and all u need to do is to pop out to the habour at TST side at the start time. very easily fit into the iteniery esp since they are at avenue of stars already.

Around the same period. Do note that the later you go the higher the chances of the good stuff being sold out. It's not thunderstorm and rain, it's typhoon that you should worry about. During Cat 8 typhoons the country shuts down with airport, ferry and public transport closed down.
