Will be going HK in end July for the 3rd time.. but first time DIY-ing tix and accomodation. Decided on Metropark Hotel Kowloon as I find the the rates rather good on the jetabout website.

Can I check if Hong Kong airport / Hotel seat-in-coach transfer at SGD32 / per person per way is expensive? Cos this is the airport transfer which the hotel is providing..

Many many thanks in advance. :)

cherrymints, i think you took the travel package or free and easy package.

S$32 Hotel seat-in-coach transfer is normal rate in Hong Kong.

you mean 2 persons taking cab from airport to MetroPark Hotel Kowloon is about SGD$32/trip too? Maybe I will take a cab upon arrival but choose the hotel airport transfer service upon departure..

are you chinese?
if so, you can ask the driver or check out the signs at the bus-stop
it's written in chinese...
if you are not chinese, IIRC, there's also english signage on the bus-stop

tt time when i went, i also dunno which bus goes where, but i can read the sign from the bus-stop, forget if it's chinese or english, but i strongly believe there's english as well.

Hi Alo, I had been to Tai O for more then 6 times for the passt years to tase the famous Tai O Beancurd made by the Famous Ah Po Beancurd.
Tai O famous Salted Fish if you like to cook! And also Tai O Famous Dried Fish Belly, to make the Cantonese fish belly soup.

I had also tried the Tai O Tan Chai cook by charcoal, Dried Cuttlefish & Fish Belly BBQ Style.

I had been to Tai O a few times by Taxi & Bus.

Taxi cost you around HK$200+ to Tai O as is Super Fast Ride like sitting on a Blue Takumi Subaru Inital D Car...

Bus is a bumpy ride where set you to around HK$20 on your Octpous Card.ip around 45mins or more... But you will notice to pass by some nice view and prison along the way...

Bus hunmber 11 if i am not wrong. Please kindly confirm at the Tung Chung MTR Station Master if you want or the bus driver if you speak some cantonese or mandrain.

Will be going HK soon. Planned to go Macau on Fri, Tai O on Sat and Shenzhen on Sun... but is it advisable to go Shenzhen on a Sun? Hope won't be too crowded.
