new world ah? ok lah.. walking distance to TST MTR and the harbour. then you can just walk to the harbour and take the ferry to HK island.. hahah. try the ferry at least once even though you can take the train. the ferry was so happening that i took most of the times when i cross over. hahhah.
TST area got quite a few stuff.. got sogo, and of cos all the smaller lanes between TST & mongkok.
weather ah? think its quite cool.. dun think its that hot... u may wanna bring cardi in case you are the 'scared cold' type like me. ahhahah
Hi Sally >> Thanks for your reply. What do you mean by the room is so so only?
Hi minssy >> Thanks for your reply too. When was the last time you stayed at Prudential Hotel? I stayed at Eaton Hotel back in 2002. Not too bad but room abit small. Thought of trying different hotel this time round. Any suggestions? Thanks!
For those going to visit the wax museum is call Mdm Tussards at the Peak but i think its still under renovation but maybe can chk it out again. My last trip there in Nov 05 is still under reno
I stayed Prudential every trip to HK...location & convenience is excellent thou i have to agree the room is pretty small but anyway..the room is for us to sleep only coz majority of your time is shopping so shld not be an issue.
Will be going there again next mth but this time not staying Prudential oredi coz fully booked so will be staying in Shamrock instead. So anyone have any comments for this hotel?
Anyone knows the itinerary of the half day city tour (Repluse Bay, Abeerdeen, Victoria Peak, etc)? My travel agent say we will be going up by bus to half way of Victoria Peak only. Is it true? They don't bring us up to the top?
And how about the complimentary Shenzhen Day tour? Does anyone know what time they will release us at Shenzhen? Mine have a free lunch.. so was wondering after the lunch.. can we go back to Hongkong if we want by KCR or do we have to stay in Shenzhen until certain time.. then can go back hongkong? Coz me wanted to go to the Wishing Tree at Tseun Wan after the free Shenzhen day tour.
Anyone tried before the above 2 itineraries? Can help to advise?
suggest you skip the 'free tour' cos its a waste of time & money. haahhah. they will bring you to silly shops and make you spend money. u shd go to your desired places on your own cos there is so much to explore in hk!
of cos not that enough lah.. hee.. (ok i am encouraging you to spend more. keke). for me, we signed card of our esprit, muji, some goodie foods purchases and some makan.. in any case, credit card will be handy for some of the purchases in 'reputable & steady' place..
Oic...but me travelling with parents...they like tour coz easier and can go more places than if we were to travel ourselves. But if i follow the tour, then yar... i might not be able to go to other places which i want.
Anyone went to Wishing Tree at Tseun Wan? Is it very hard to travel there? Heard take KCR to Tai Po Market and then take a bus... the bus journey is it very far from Wishing Tree?
i heard from a fren that to go to the Wishing Tree is to take a train to the very last station than take about a 15 to 20 mins ride in cab will reach the place...but best part is she forgotten the station's name....
Oic.. they can't throw your wishes up already..thought of going to there to throw.. hehe.. then do you know does the tree still have other's people's wishes up there or the tree now become bare liao.. haha.. how much will it cost to take a cab in? is it very expensive? Was thinking of rushing to the place after the Shenzhen city tour...thought wanted to take picture at the tree..hehe..
Oic.. so there's some people who still buy the "red wishing papers" from the praying stall nearby and then throw up themselves? But it's illegal?? Okie.. maybe might go there lor... since everyday still have the "red papers" hanging on the tree bah??!!
