hmmm i guess it would be worth it for some cool photographs, only thing is will disneyland be cooler during the NYE countdown? :p

"cooler" - hmmmm it's wintertime u know :s11:

I'm now thinking whether we should just hang around/explore TST Area after they drop us off the Full-Day City Tour at around 4 pm at TST on our 2nd Day or New Year's Eve ....
then just take the [pre-arranged] free ferry over to Lamma Island maybe at around 4.30 pm for the Rainbow Seafood Dinner [only HK$300 per pax - minimum 2 pax] - so can still be on Return Ferry to watch the 8pm Symphony of Lights Show while still at sea [since whole Ferry-Dinner trip supposed to be 4 hours here ... yay good idea or not ??? :) ;) :D]

Then after Symphony of Lights - hope can still take MTR or even shuttle etc bus 'easily without too much human jams' back to our Hotel to watch countdown on TV COMFORTABLY [we've been warned against squeezing with the Countdown Crowds as simply 'IMPOSSIBLE TO MOVE' situations :eek: :s16::(]

Well maybe not since I'm NOT a 'family-goer' - since I've already more-or-less decided also NOT to pop over to Macau for this very short 5D4N HK trip [since 2nd day/New Year's Eve ALREADY taken up by that free/included Full Day City Tour covering Repulse Bay, Aberdeen, Lantau Island/Nong Ping 360 Sky Rail Ride, Avenue of Stars at TST plus another day for OCEAN PARK [free included tickets] + one late afternoon-evening for the Peak/Md Tussaud's on our own expense]
We'll play by ear I guess ...... limited timing =:p

Was thinking to do Macau-Zhuhai on another trip and STAY at the Venetian if possible hehehe :D must watch out for REAL OFFERS there ......

if you are thinking of going Macau from hong kong, go book a local tour in HK and you can save quite a few $$.
i just went this week and only cost me HKD181 per person + HKD50 tips for the tour guide. The tour includes a return Turbojet ferry ticket, a half day guided tour and a buffet lunch at one of the casino hotel. After lunch they will send you to The Venetian and you are on your own. You can choose your return timing, so book the 10pm (on weekdays) and if you want to return to HK early just go to the ferry terminal and be on the waiting list (normally on weekdays ferry not full).

Thanks - we've already booked and paid for our F&E 5D4N HK Trip tonight at a People's Park Centre Basement Travel Agency {Newly} - Just $704 all-in with taxes :
- CX flights with convenient timings [Depart Wed 30/12/09 AM and Return Sun 3/1/10 PM]
- 4N at Harbour Plaza Resort City with airport transfers
- Free Full-Day City Tour with Aberdeen, NongPing 360 SkyRail, Lantau Island etc ....
- Free Ocean Park OR Disney Tickets

My friend was saying - it was supposed to be a free & easy 'relaxing' trip for us - but looks like kinda 'jam-packed' already as also planning to pop over to Macau & Zhuhai on our own [possibly only do-able on the 4th day Sat 2nd Jan] as that leaves Ocean Park to the 3rd day Fri New Year's Day - followed by the Peak & Md Tussaud's after Ocean Park [really dreading the huge crowds there !!!]
Hope we won't experience 'horrific human jams' at the end of our free City Tour ending around 4 pm at the TST Area on the 2nd day or New Year's Eve - would like to be able to make it back to our hotel and watch the New Year countdown from the TV comfortably :D :s13: maybe have fun "cooking/heating up" our own 'supper' in the room kitchenette etc ......

Think not too bad a deal here
CX flights too at this time of the year etc .....
The hotel rooms are pretty big too and shopping etc nearby .....
Not that bad as have hotel shuttle bus in addition to public transport

Ur deal not bad. Still got throw in Disney admission ticket. In the end I have to find my own lobang of Disney admission ticket. Wonder where to get promotional ones.

Macau - a Portuguese colony until Dec 1999, just 60 kilometers west of Hong Kong, is another alluring destination manifest in aging churches and temples, cobbled lanes and narrow winding streets, hilltop fortresses and a grand seafront promenade. It is a land coloured by a delightful mix of European and Oriental, ancient and present where varied cultures coverage and impressive monuments survive along the hurly and burly of a modern metropolis.
Depart hotel to pier for a relaxing boat ride to Macau.

Arrive Macau and start your sightseeing by driving along Guia Circuit - where one of the biggest international event - the Grand Prix is held annually.

Visit an ancient temple decorated with handmade, colourful roof pottery.

Historic Centre of Macao, inscribed as a world heritage site by UNESCO, is marked by important landmarks such as Senado Square and Section of the Old City Walls.

St. Paul's Ruins (Ruinas de Sao Paulo), the grand imposing facade is the ruins of an early 17th century church designed by an Italian Fesuit and built by early Japanese Christian exiles.

Passing by the picturesque cobblestones streets.

Built in 1617-26, Mount Fortress covers 10,000 sq.m. and serves as the first residence of the governors of Macau.

Lunch will be served at a hotel.

Visit the gambling tables of the world famous casino in Macau - the Lisboa Casino or Sands Casino.

Return to Hong Kong and transfer to hotels.

Notes: * Macau visa fee is not included [if required]
