Why is that so?
Paying S$700+ per ticket to HK unless you, last min buy ticket, are flying 1st class or business class i got nothing to say.

Pay a little more for CX. Trust me, it's worth it.

Anyone has experience with rail travel from Hong Kong to Shanghai (South Railway Station)?

I have read some info from KCRC and some other googled sources. Besides the seating classes, pricing and odd/even departure days, anyone can share more info on their rail experience?

Hi guy, just to check with you all something. As i reading a HK tour guide book, i came across that you actually can have a helicopter ride in HK. So may i know is that true? If so, then what is the cost? Thank.:)

True there are helicopter ride in HK to Macau express & Flightseeing Tours.
Will be very expansive.
Check below
http://hongkong.peninsula.com/phk/location_01.html

http://www.macau-airport.gov.mo/transportation_helicopter.phtml

Read here
http://www.smarttravelasia.com/hongkong.htm

14. You could really fly of course. By far the best way to see Hongkong is from the air, and although helicopter rides don't come cheap, for a once in a lifetime experience you may well feel that one is worth the outlay. Heliservices Air Tours (tel: [852] 2488-1659, www.heliservices.com.hk) offers charters ranging from a fifteen-minute Hong Kong island and harbour highlights scenic flight priced at HK$4,250 to a one-hour tour of Hongkong island, Lantau island (including the famous giant Buddha at Po Lin monastery) and the New Terrritories for HK$12,500 (about US$1,600). Those prices are what you pay to charter the twin engine AS355N helicopter, which seats five, and if you can get a group together to fill the seats, that last trip comes down to just HK$2,500 each – a pretty fair price.

Or issit only those Superior Room will have own bathroom? cos the official website only mentioned abt the bathroom for Superior Room but not Standard Room.

day 1
after check in mk, recce the area, look for lunch. get the lay of the land how to get to mtr etc. after that go to ladies street..forgot the road where there's loads of shops selling sports shoes...

day 2
after avenue of stars go HK lan kwai fong to party lor, day 1 also can

day 3
visit disneyland on weekday hor otherwise could be quite crowded. tickets can buy from internet. haven't bought from mtr before.

day4
happy valley nothering much, suggest go to wanchai, causeway bay (times square is there) instead. from there take tram back to central to get to the peak.

day5
by then would have idea of what you want. checkout the hk tourism board website for more info.

1. tram like taking bus except it's on rails.
2. shopping can go langham place, times square. everywhere in hk got shopping. depends what you interest in.
3. octopus card is very useful suggest you buy cos can pay for mtr, bus, tram, things at convenience stall like 7-11. can keep for 2 years after last top up. HK$7 deducted if return less than 1 month in use. if don't buy will end up with pocketful of coins which are heavy! also have to ask how much eh than calculate the fare for all, dig money etc. for me leh che. just tap the card and go!

Buying Disneyland tix over the net requires a credit card (you must bring the same card to claim the tix). But it is very fast; I did not have to queue at all even though it was on a Sunday/X'mas eve.

Do you play any musical instruments? May want to have a look at Tom Lee. Always felt that the Cameroon Road branch is possibly the best music store (for keys, drums & guitar) o/s of Japan.

take Airport express to TsingYi then change MTR to Mongkok. IIRC, need to change at another MTR station.

any advice on where to go after check in?
mongkok can go fayuen street and all the nearby streets where they got 'pasar malam'
then also can go up-market shopping at tsim sha tsui (30 minutes walk). walk along nathan road IIRC to reach tsim sha tsui.

day 2:
tung chung mtr
citygate
prepare to do lots of shopping here :D
cafe rendezous
nvr go cafe rendezous b4, no comments
giant buddha- go by cable or bus better?
take cable is faster and better view.
bus is longer but is much cheaper. the last time i went, i took cable up, and bus down.

tst mtr
avenue of stars
anywhere else after this?


day3:
DISNEYLAND! will it b better if we buy our tix at mtr stns?

day4:
star ferry terminal
take ferry to central

no need to take ferry to central, nothing much about the ferry anyway, more convenient to take mtr from mongkok directly to central

蘭芳園? where is this place?
IIRC, frm central 5 mins walk

shopping

tram to happy valley
happy valley only certain period then got 'horse racing'.

then from here how to go peak?
peak is walkable from central mtr.

day5:
no idea..

sorry but i really have alot of questions to ask.. please pardon me..

see reply in quote

must get the map from the airport when u reach there.most of the places u stated are within walkable distance from the MTR station. even MTR station are very near, like jordan and mongkok are like 10-15 mins walk away only.

meanwhile u can go Hongkong tourist center in suntec to get brochures about where to go in hongkong and maps in hongkong
