Hi, going to HK for the first time. wish to find out how long is the journey on citybus 629 to Ocean Park from Admiralty mtr?
Seems like lowland and headland are separated by ocean? am i right? anyone been to middle kingdom?
Ocean Park (æµ·æ´‹å…¬å›)
ïƒ¼ MTR cost from Jordan to Admiralty is HK$7.90 and takes about 10 minutes.
ïƒ¼ Opens from 10am to 6pm
ïƒ¼ Take City bus 629 from Admiralty MTR (Exit B). Outside Lippo Centre and opposite Far East Finance Centre. Bus fare: HK$10.60 ~ S$2.50 (first bus at 9am and last bus at 4pm). Takes about 15 to 20 minutes.
I also 1st time going HK. I did my own research and this is what I got. Not sure how accurate is it but at least for your reference.
so sorry! hv not been comin here for quite awhile...
you're flying off tmr! hope u can get to see this msg...jus spoken to my fren...is very difficult to negotiate the fare at a flat rate on e spot...they would definitely wana on e meter and it would cost anything hkd300 or so.
my fren would try to give me e contact no. later ^^
yup the no. is +852 6754 1100. Do u know how to speak cantonese? before you board the plane, just give him a call...check with him the price. give him an estimated time to pick you and ask him where to wait and also cab no.
alternative way is to take e airport express(train) to kowloon station...from there, transfer into a cab which costs roughly abt sg7. it's not e normal mrt so u definitely hv seats and space to place ur luggages. take a look at the link, it explains
my fren told me that the xmas lightings and decors are up...very nice! yeah
rem to get the famous krispy kreme doughnuts. was there e wk b4 and they had e halloween doughnuts...so cute! bought some for my colleagues and all snatched up within mins. unlike here, u don hv to q to buy doughnuts...haha! available in e airport.
oh yah...rem to bring some thicker clothings for ur kids. although it's cooling in hk now, e weather is quite unpredictable, e temp might drop suddenly to 18 or 19 sometimes. and it can get cold in e nite especially when there's wind.
hope u & ur family hv a wonderful & magical time in hk ya!
i will still be hanging ard...anything u can still check wif me...^^
Will be going Hong Kong in Jan 2008 with my mum and her 2 sisters. We will be staying at Prudential. But I have absolutely no idea of where to shop in Hong Kong as the last time I was there, I was still a toddler! keke Any good suggestions?
I'm just back from HK last evening. The weather is SUPER GOOD there...ard 24 deg C.
Would like to thank you for the apt recommendation. Ashley Apartment is really a GOOD GOOD choice. It is very clean & modern. The Superior room is very spacious too. Location is great too. Within walking distance to all the nearby shoppings & eateries.
The receptionist "Joey" is very friendly too. She recommended us where to eat, shop & sight-seeing.
For breakfast, she recommended us to Tao Heung Super 88 (ç¨»é¦™è¶…çº§æ¸”æ¸¯ï¼‰@ The Silvercord - Canton Rd (8 mins walk from apt) for dim sum. For 2nd day, she recommended us to æ¾³é—¨èŒ¶é¤åŽ…for their famous Pork Chop burger breakfast set. It is located at Lock Rd which is 2 streets away from Ashley apt.
For dinner, we had roasted duck around the corner of the apt - Hing Fat (å…´å‘èŒ¶é¤åŽ…). They served good food here.
We will definitely stay again in Ashely Apt for our next trip.
We took Airport Express to Kowloon Station (HK$220 for 4 person) and then transfer into cab to Ashley Apt. It costs HK$42. It is very convenient.
Once again...thank you for all yr valuable info.
My kids enjoyed the last 2 days of the trip at HK Disneyland Park too. We stayed in Disneyland Hotel. A very nice & comfy hotel...where kids enjoyed breakfast together with the Disney Characters (Mickey & Minnie, Donald & Daisy Duck, etc).
esprit outlet is at TST.. just find your way to hankow road..
G/F, level 1, Kai Seng Commercial Centre, 4-6 Hankow Road
as for adidas... u can go to city gate shopping centre.. its at Tung Chung MTR (near airport)..
they have international brands... they offer discounted prices but do not expect dirt cheap prices. u can also take a train from kowloon.. should be about 30 mins or so....
welcome. the espirt at hankow is very big.. sure shop till u drop.. also, if you are going during the winter season (nov to feb or so), then esprit will be 1 of the quite rare places that you can get non-long sleeve clothes..
boots are everywhere!! u would definitely not miss them!! of cos mongkok area is cheaper! but in terms of quality & designs, i prefer those fr tst & causebay! but these 2 areas are more exp. prob abt at least sgd60 a pair as it's not e sales season now. the trend for this winter is ankle boots! enjoy ur shopping! ^^
h&m is really a must! nice clothes at reasonable prices! u can find really nice working wears which are suitable for here & of cos winter wears now! don miss it!
there are total 4 outlets in hk:
1) argyle st, mongkok
2) queen's road, central
3) directly above mrt - kowloon station, inside a new classy shopping mall
4) festival walk (shopping mall), kowloon tong mrt
