I've been reading the reviews posted here. Could you please suggest the itinerary for 4 adults(i'll be bringing my parents). I haven't not booked the hotel but planning to stay in Royal Plaza hotel. Please advise.

I don't think I'll be going to Macau because the trip is quite short and afraid it'll be tiring for my parents.

By the way, we do not know how to read Chinese, it wouldn't be a problem for us right? Sorry.

Please suggest how we get to the hotel and the places and below: Thank you very much.

Places of interests:
a) Disneyland / Ocean park (which is more suitable)
b) streets market
c) symphony light
d) ngo ping island
e) madame tussauds
f) anywhere else you might want to suggest
g) places to get food

thank you very much.Looking forward to hearing from you.

re: 3 days and 2 nights in Hongkong
by: hkinsider Don

Hello Donna, here my comments and suggestions to your inquiry.

1. From Macau, take the ferry that bound for Hong Kong Macau Ferry terminal at Sheung Wan (about an hour trip @ HK$151 on weekdays; HK$163 on Weekends & Holidays (Day Service); HK$185 on Weekdays, Weekends & Holidays (Night service).

Upon arrival at Sheung Wan, you can then get into the Sheung Wan MTR station located just below the ferry terminal for a 7 minutes @ HK$4.6 train ride to Wan Chai station.

2,3,4,5. Day 1: Ocean Park, morning til 4:00pm --> The Peak + sky terrace til 7:00pm --> bus 15C to Central pier (10 mins @ HK$4.2) --> Star Ferry ride to TST --> Victoria harbour for Avenue of Stars and Symphony of Lights show @ 8:00pm --> street market shopping at Kowloon til midnight.

Day 2: HK Disneyland whole day + fireworks show at 7:30pm --> shopping at Causeway Bay.

Day 3: Check out in the hotel and head to Tung Chung (actually you can opt for a quick visit to Dialogue in the Dark before going to Ngong Ping) --> MTR to Tung Chung station --> proceed to Citygate Outlets and leave your luggage --> walk to the nearby cable car terminal --> take the cable car to Ngong Ping (25 mins @ HK$125 - round trip) --> explore Ngong Ping until 5:00pm --> cable car back to Tung Chung --> shopping and dining at Citygate Outlets --> taxi to HKIA for departure (10 mins @ HK$40).

Yes Sophy, just follow same travel route when getting back and of course in reverse order. Also, there's always an option to MTR like bus or taxi.

With all the help and info that you sent, now we are ready to conquer and enjoy Hongkong :-) my gratitude is on your way. One more question if I may add, is the route (and transportation) coming back the same as the route going to the places?

Big help :)
by: Angelica

Thank you very much for this! My anxiety is gone and now I am so much more excited to visit HK! :)

Keep up the good work and more power! :)

RE: 5 days - what to do?
by: HKinsider Don

Ocean Park also offers a full day activity in fact it has more attractions than Disney and even more entertaining. You should stay at the park from 10:00am to 5:00pm (at least) to make the most of it.

* Getting there: From Disneyland to Ocean Park:
MTR trains to Sunny Bay station --> Tung Chung Line to Hong Kong station --> walk to the adjacent Central station --> Island Line to Admiralty station (41 mins @ HK$21.7) and then take exit B --> bus 629 to Ocean Park entrance (25 mins @ HK$10.6).

* From Ocean Park to Ladies' Market at Mong Kok street market:
Bus 629 to Admiralty --> MTR Tsuen Wan Line to Mong Kok station (10 mins @ HK9.9) and then take Exit E2 --> walk few mins and follow directional signs to the market at Tung Choi st. here you can view the walking route map and more info.

Or, you can opt to try the DHL HK Balloon before going to street market (maybe from 7:00pm to 8:00pm). Getting there: MTR Island Line Admiralty to Central station --> Tung Chung Line Hong Kong to Kowloon station (15 mins @ HK$8.1) and then take Exit D.

From DHL HK Balloon to Mong Kok: MTR Tung Chung Line from Kowloon to Lai King station --> Tsuen Wan Line to Mong Kok 25 mins @ HK$3.8)

* From Mong Kok to Disneyland:
Mong Kok MTR Tsuen Wan Line to Lai King station --> Tung Chung Line to Sunny Bay station --> Disneyland Resort Line to Disneyland station (33 mins @ HK$17) and then take Exit A.

* From Disneyland to Macau, here's a detailed travel instruction. Macau is quite small, once you arrive in Macau Ferry Terminal after clearing at the immigration, just take a taxi to Senado Square, lot of other attractions you'll find close to it. See Macau attractions map here. At night, just follow travel sequence in reverse order in getting back from Macau to HK Disneyland. No worries of getting late, Ferry service is 24 hrs.

* From Disneyland to TST for HK Museums (I suggest Museum of Art and Space Museum) and HK Shopping - TST shopping malls (I love the Harbour City):

MTR trains to Sunny Bay station --> Tung Chung Line to Lai King station --> Tsuen Wan Line to Tsim Sha Tsui station (39 mins @ HK$17).

To give you an idea for your budget, pls read this topic discussion about budget in HK.

yay! =)
by: Angelica

Wow. You're really fast in replying. =)

I'm ok with the day 1. :)

Regarding the 2nd day, do we really need that much time spending in Ocean park? =) How about transportation details? =)

For day 3, I'm also ok with it. Just want to ask for transportation details here too.=)

For day 4, what do you recommend to do in Macau? And how do we get there? :)

For day 5, what museum and shopping center would you recommend? and again, transportation details.

I easily get lost when it comes to traveling so I really need specific instructions when it comes to transferring to places. Sorry for the hassle.

Also, is it possible to add DHL HK Balloon to our itinerary? =)

And lastly, any estimate of how much we should bring? Thank you! :)

RE: 5 days - what to do?
by: HKinsider Don

Hello Angelica,

First, Disney's Hollywood Hotel (pls follow link to read hotel more info, guest reviews, and location map) is a 4-star hotel located at Hong Kong Disneyland Lantau Island, Hong Kong.

Here's my sample itinerary suggestion to maximize your stay in Hong Kong.

April 24: Upon arrival at HKIA, purchase an Octopus card each of you at the Airport Express counter at that you can easily find at the arrival hall. It is essential when touring around the city using the public transports.

From HKIA, you can go straight to Disneyland thru taxi as it is the most efficient considering your in a group of 4 people. It is about 20 mins drive @ HK$135 + HK$5 each luggage. When you arrive at Disneyland, you can stow your luggage before you enter the park (luggage lockers details in here) to make yourself comfortable as you explore the park. I would suggest you stay at park until 7:00pm to watch the fireworks show and to complete your Disney visit then just check in to the hotel afterwards. Don't worry, the hotel is just nearby.

Getting to the hotel, you actually take a stroll from the park entrance to the hotel or go to the Bus terminal close to the MTR station where you can find the hotel shuttle bus that will shuttle you to the hotel. Hotel shuttle bus details in here.

Now, remember to use the shuttle bus then take MTR trains as your gateway and one of your best travel options other than taking a taxi to visit the next HK attractions in the ff days.

April 25: Ocean Park (whole day) --> shopping mall or street market shopping before getting back to the hotel.

April 26: NP 360, cable car to Ngong Ping (morning) --> Citygate Outlets (shopping and lunch) --> Victoria Peak (until 7:00pm) --> TST promenade to visit Avenue of Stars and watch the Symphony of Lights at 8:00pm --> back to hotel.

April 27: Macau (whole day).

April 28: Get into TST area in the morning and you may opt to visit a Museum, then afternoon do a final shopping to one of the popular shopping malls around TST --> back to hotel and then taxi back to HK airport.

Hope this help and let me know if you need a specific travel instruction and or rearrange your itinerary.

5 days - what to do?
by: Angelica

Hey there. :)

I find this thread very helpful but I got lost somewhere since there are already many itineraries here that would be applicable to our trip. And I don't know what to choose. So yeah, I think I also need your help in arranging ours. =)

My family (4 adults) will be arriving at HK International Airport at around 8am on April 24. We'll be staying at Disneyland Hollywood Hotel. However, our check-in time is 3pm. This is one of my problem since we don't know where we can leave our baggage first or if there are any places we can visit despite carrying big bags around.

Our flight back is scheduled at around 10pm on April 28.

I have no idea on what to do from April 24, 8am until April 28, 10pm. =(

And is it possible to tour the whole Disneyland in just a day? Or do we need 2 days?

We also want to spend a day in Macau. =)

Sorry for this lengthy message. Hoping for your reply. Thank you! :)

Hi HKinsider jom,

Appreciate much the itinerary you suggested for 3 Days HK + 1 Day Macau:) In any case, would you happen to know great restaurants in the vicinity of the areas we're visiting?

Also, know of any good boutique hotels in the tsim sha tsui area? BP International, the one you suggested, looks promising. Although I just want to have an alternative just in case.

Thanks again,

3 Days HK + 1 Day Macau
by: Tot Traveller

Hi,

I find your suggestions most helpful for our upcoming trip, so thanks very much!

We're scheduled to be in HK Feb 5 2012(10am)and leave Feb 8 (6pm).
My husband and I are travelling with my dad who's 75 years old, my mom who's 55 and our baby who just turned 1.

Hope you can help me with an itinerary that is both senior citizen and baby-friendly, as my dad already uses a cane for long walks and my baby still needs a lot of taking care of.

We've all been to HK before, sans my baby, but at the end of this trip, I'm hoping to accomplish:

Disneyland, Ocean Park, Bargain shopping, Eat good food, Macau, and maybe experience some of the places that you've mentioned previously in this thread.

Also where's a good hotel to stay considering the itinerary, one with around a 3-4 star rating should be okay.

Again, thanks much and looking forward to your expert suggestions.

by: HKinsider jom

Hello!

Here is my suggested itinerary for your 5 days stay in Hong Kong.

Jan.7 - Victoria Peak (until late afternoon) --> Star ferry --> Avenue of Stars (watch the Symphony of Lights which starts at 8pm).

From airport to Tsim Sha Tsui.

From your hotel to the Peak: Go to Tsim Sha Tsui Star Ferry Pier and board the Star Ferry going to Central Star Ferry Pier (8 mins. @ HK$8). Upon arrival at Central Pier, you'll find the Central Pier Bus station. Take Bus no. 15C (10 minutes @ HK$4.2), your kids will love to sit on the open top bus that will bring you to the Victoria Peak Tram station.

Tram ticket price as follows: Adult = HK$ 28 - one way, HK$ 40 - round trip; Child (age 3 - 11) or Senior (age 65 or above) = HK$ 11 - one way, HK$ 18 - round trip.

From The Peak to The Avenue of Stars: Go to the Central Pier and board again the Star Ferry going to Tsim Sha Tsui. When you arrive at TST Pier, you just need a little walk going to the Promenade.

Jan.8 - Ocean Park --> Street Markets - Ladies' Night Market

Here's a travel guide in getting from Tsim Sha Tsui to Ocean Park.

Re: 4 nights in HKG from 02March2012
by: HKinsider Don

@ Amy,

Hello Inn hostel is conveniently located at 6/F Mirador Mansion, 54-58 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong. Here's to read to read more details about Mirador Mansion specially in getting there.

To be able to maximize your HK tour, I would like to know what are the places you wanted to visit while in HK?

The most efficient way to travel in Getting to Shenzhen from Hello Inn hostel or from Tsim Sha Tsui area is thru MTR trains.

Here's how...
Get into the Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station --> take the Tsuen Wan Line train and get off at Mong Kok station --> interchange trains to the Kwun Tong Line and get of at Kowloon Tong station --> interchange trains to the East Rail Line all the way to Lo Wu station (53 mins @ HK$34.8). You need to prepare your passport and China Visa to get into Shenzhen.

After getting thru the Hong Kong and China immigration, upon exit at the building, you'll find the Luohu Commercial Center (that should be the mall you talked about). It is a huge shopping mall where you can find almost everything on sale at bargain price.

Or, another good place for bargaining is in Dongmen (pronounced as "Tongmon") Commercial Area. Upon exit at China immigration building take a short walk to the nearby Shenzhen Metro train subway station and take the trains to "Lao Jie - 老街" station (3rd station from "Luo Hu - 罗湖" station, 5 minutes @ 2 RMB).

Re: Imperial Hotel at TST

@ Angela,

The Imperial Hotel Hong Kong is rated 3-star hotel very conveniently located at 32-34 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong.

The hotel is easily accessible from any of these transportation options (please refer to the map below):

* MTR Trains. Tsuen Wan Line and get off at Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station Exit E, the hotel is just across the Nathan Rd upon exit. Also, if taking the East Rail Line trains, get off at East Tsim Sha Tsui station Exit L1 then a minute walk to the hotel.

* Airport Bus. Bus A21 from Airport (Ground Transportation Centre) and get off at 14th bus stop located at 30 Nathan Road before Middle Rd just outside the hotel.

* Airport Express train and get off at Kowloon station (21 mins @ HK$90) then take the Airport Express shuttle bus (route K2) to the East Tsim Sha Tsui Station (about 25 mins, free of charge) then walk few minutes to the hotel.

by: Angela

Thanks so much! Upon taking the bus is there any way it passes by the Imperial Hotel? I read somewhere that we can just tell the bus driver that we're going down at Imperial Hotel so they can stop right in front of the hotel.

Also, are there any shopping malls near the Imperial Hotel that we could go to?

How do we go to the Symphony of Lights show and the harbour from the Imperial Hotel? Thanks so much!

Re: getting to Tsim Sha Tsui from HK airport.
by: HKinsider Don

@ Angela,

hotlegchic18 is right! the most cheapest yet efficient way to get into Tsim Sha Tsui (and most of Kowloon area along Nathan Rd) is to take the bus CTB A21.

Half fare for children under the age of 12 & seniors aged 65 and above.

Here's transpo options in getting to TST from airport.

@ hotlegchic18, thank you for sharing!

HKIA to TST
by: hotlegchic18

Hi Angela,

The cheapest way from Hong Kong International Airport to Tsim Sha Tsui is thru Airport bus A21 which cost HKD 33. I'm just not sure if it will cost differently for kids. Travel may take about 45-90 minutes depending on traffic.

How to get to Tsim Sha Tsui from HK International Airport
by: Angela

Hello, i would like to know the most budget-friendly and easiest way to get to Tsim Sha Tsui from Hong Kong Intl. Airport? We are 2 adults and 2 kids so it is very important that we get there minus the hassle. Thank you.

Re: 3 days HK suggested itinerary
by: HKinsider Don

For 31 Oct. aside from cable car ride, of course you'll find the rest of the popular attractions in Lantau when you get into Ngong Ping.

Also from NP, you can opt to visit Tai O Fishing Village for the popular sea-food place in Hong Kong. You can take a taxi from NP to Tai O for about 12 mins drive @ HK$50.

For night market, as mentioned in your 29 Oct itinerary, the Temple Street Night Market is only about 3 mins walk from Shamrock hotel (refer to map below).


View Shamrock hotel in a larger map

About Macau, yes it is doable. Macau is a small place and most visitors will opt for a day in Macau. Upon getting at Macau Ferry Terminal, you can take a taxi straight to the Senado (Senate Square), the main plaza and from there, you'll find lots of nearby tourist attractions then no visit to Macau is complete without at least one stop at a casino. For Los Vegas resort style gambling, visit the recently completed Wynn Macau, or the popular Sands Macau or Venetian Macao Resort Hotel.

The Symphony of Lights show is everyday at 8:00pm.

Disneyland or Ocean Park is expected to have lot of visitors on weekends, either Saturdays or Sundays.

can we watch the symphony of lights on sundays also? we're planning to go Disneyland on Oct 29 which is a saturday. are there more people on saturday or sunday?

by: Anonymous

Hello, thanks for your reply, will surely follow your suggested itinerary.

Any suggestions for our Oct 31 outing aside from the cable ride?

Is there night market near Shamrock hotel that's walking distance only?

Any suggestion for 2 day stay in Macau? I've read your earlier suggestions. It seems Macau can be toured in one day only?

Thank you for your patience in answering our questions :-)

Re: 3 days HK suggested itinerary
by: HKinsider Don

* 30 Oct: HK Disneyland whole day (stay until 7:30 pm to watch the "Disney in the Stars" fireworks show).

* 31 Oct: Ngong Ping 360 (morning until 2:00pm) ==> Citygate Outlets shopping and perhaps an early dinner (until 5:00pm) ==> back to hotel and prepare in getting back to Macau.

From Shamrock hotel, get into the Jordan MTR station --> take the Tsuen Wan Line train and get off at Lai King station --> interchange trains to the Tung Chung Line and get off at Tung Chung Exit B (36 mins @ HK$14.1) --> walk to the nearby NP 360 cable car terminal --> take the cable car to Ngong Ping (25 mins @ HK$115 - round trip ticket) --> explore Ngong Ping --> take the cable car back to Tung Chung cable car terminal --> walk to the nearby Citygate outlets -- back to hotel.

Here are the popular food places around TST area.

Hope this will help and good luck to your macau - hk visit!

Re: 3 days HK suggested itinerary
by: HKinsider Don

Location wise, many would suggest and prefer to stay at Shamrock hotel over Dorsett seaview hotel. Both hotels are rated 3-stars.

Shamrock hotel Hong Kong is located in heart of Kowloon Peninsula, 223 Nathan Road, Kowloon, Hong Kong. It is located adjacent to the Jordan MTR station (Exit C1).
Tel. +852 2735 2271

For instruction in getting to HK Disneyland and Ocean Park from Shamrock hotel, please click here.

The Mass Transit Railway (MTR) in Hong Kong are far more efficient transportation in touring around the city than buses except for some other remote area.

Here's my personal itinerary suggestion to maximize your time while in HK.

* You'll arrive in HK from Macau on 28 Oct afternoon so you could have enough time to visit some attraction in Kowloon area that requires not much time like the DHL HK Balloon and Sky100 in west Kowloon. It is about 8 mins taxi @ HK$20 from the China Macau Ferry terminal in TST and then another 10 mins taxi to Shamrock hotel.

29 Oct: From hotel ==> Ocean Park (morning until 4:30pm) ==> The Peak (until 7:00pm and you can take your dinner up there in the Peak) ==> Avenue of stars + Symphony of Lights show at 8:00pm ==> Street Markets - temple street night market shopping ==> back to hotel.

Here's a travel instruction in getting to Ocean Park to the Peak then to TST promenade for Avenue of Stars and watch the Symphony of Lights.

From TST promenade to Jordan for temple street night market which also about 3 minutes walk from Shamrock hotel. Get into the TST MTR station --> take Tsuen Wan Line train and get off at Jordan station Exit A (3 mins @ HK$3.8).

3 days HK suggested itinerary
by: Anonymous

Hi, we plan to visit Macau and HK this end of October. We arrive Macau Thursday night around 10pm, (oct.27) night and plan to go HK Friday afternoon via ferry. Stay in HK for about 3 days then back to Macau on the 31st of Oct around early evening, then stay in Macau for 2 days to rest.

Can you suggest itinerary for us? I'm going with my 2 daughters aged 15 and 18. We're still choosing if we will check in at Shamrock Hotel near Jordan station or Dorsett seaview hotel also in Kowloon.

i would highly appreciate if you can help us maximize our stay in HK as this is our 1st trip together.

I plan to visit HK Disneyland, Ocean Park, The Peak, Avenue of Stars, symphony of lights, and do some shopping and food trip!

Can you suggest what attractions are on the same area so we can maximize the time?

Can you also include the estimate cost? is it more convenient to travel by bus?

thank you.

Shenzhen trip
by: hotlegchic18

Hi,

Thanks for all of your tips and advise. We had a trip in Hong Kong and Macau, though our flight has been cancelled due to the typhoon but it was rescheduled the following day. Our trip to Shenzhen was not allowed because they said Philippine passport is not allowed in Shenzhen. Nevertheless, it was still an awesome vacation.

Thanks once again for all your help.

Re: Oct 28 to 31 in HK Itinerary
by: HKinsider Don

@ anone_72,

Here's my personal comments and suggestions with time table for your HK itinerary:

First, here are something for you to consider: Ngong Ping can be done at least within 5 hours time; HK Disneyland and Ocean Park offers a whole day activity to make the most of it; The Peak and HK DHL Balloon is best to visit at sunset or early evening.

Oct 28, Fri: Ngong Ping (until 4:00pm) --> DHL HK Balloon (until 7:00pm) --> Hotel check in (prefer somewhere at TST area) --> Street Markets shopping (until 11:30pm).

Oct 29, Sat: Museums (until noon) --> HK Disneyland (stay until 7:30pm to watch the fireworks) --> HK Shopping (maybe at Causeway Bay until 10:00pm) --> back to hotel

Oct 30, Sun: Ocean Park (10:00am until 4:00pm) --> The Peak (until 7:00pm) --> Avenue of Stars at TST promenade and watch the Symphony of Lights at 8:00pm --> late dinner at TST area (maybe at Knutsford Terrace) --> back to hotel.

Oct 31, Mon: HK departure

Oct 28 to 31 in HK...Itinerary?
by: anone_72

Hi! We'll be staying in Hong Kong from Oct 28 to 31, 2011. We'll arrive at HK at around 10 AM on Oct 28 and leave HK on Oct 31 at 7 AM.

After we arrive we plan to go directly to the ngong ping 360 and go to the Po Lin Monastery, giant Buddha and do some walking with Buddha...about how long is that gonna take? A whole day?

The next day we're planning to go to Ocean Park and Disneyland...just wanted to ask whether I need to allot a day each to enjoy them.

Also, would it be a great idea to go to the peak, 3 nearby parks and 2 nearby museums in one day? This would probably the third day activity.

Lastly, what time would be best to enjoy the dhl balloon ride?

I know I have a lot of questions but I'd really appreciate it if you can answer them...please and thank you!

Re: change of plan
by: HKinsider Don

Hello hotlegchic18,

The places like Aberdeen, Repulse Bay, Stanley Market, Jumbo Kingdom are all situated in Hong Kong island together with Ocean Park and the Peak. Ocean Park alone takes at least half day to explore without taking any of those thrilling rides. If you opt to visit all these places in one day just for a quick visit then of course it is very doable.

Macau to Hong Kong by Ferry (NOT bus. If you take the bus, it will kill your time and lot of hassle getting in and out to mainland China).

Macau to HK Ferry service hours for Ferry to Hong Kong China Ferry Terminal at Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong route is from 7:00 am to 10:30 pm. Ordinary Class ticket cost HK$140 on weekdays and HK$155 on weekends. The other Ferry route is going to Hong Kong Macau Ferry terminal at Sheung Wan which offers almost 24 hours ferry service.

Going to Shenzhen for a day is easy thru MTR trains, just secure your China VISA before your trip.

From Cosmic Guest House at Mirador Mansion, get into the TST MTR subway station and take the Tsuen Wan Line train to Mong Kok station. Interchange trains to the Kwun Tong Line to Kowloon Tong station. Interchange trains to the East Rail Line to Lo Wu station (53 minutes @ HK$34.8) then take a short walk to the HK immigration. Another 3 minutes walk to the China immigration.

Upon exit at China immigration, nearby, you'll find the popular Lo Wu Commercial Center shopping mall (btw, you need to bargain every time you buy items in these stores, start from below half of the price then eventually you can get it at least half price).

Or, another good place for bargaining is in Dongmen (pronounced as "Tongmon") Commercial Area. Get into the Shenzhen Metro train station and take the trains to "Lao Jie - 老街" station (3rd station from "Luo Hu - 罗湖" station, 5 minutes @ 2 RMB).

I suggest you'll change some of your HKD to RMB at Money exchangers counters in the way to exit China immigration. 1 Chinese yuan (RMB) = 1.21 Hong Kong dollars (HKD).

Yes, it is a good idea to exchange Philippine peso to USD in Philippines and change to HKD when you arrived in Hong Kong.

4 nights in HKG from 02March2012
by: Amy

Hi there,

I know this is still some time away but I'm wondering if you could put an itinerary together for 5 travellers first timers in HKG from NZ. We are all very excited and are looking at staying with Hello Inn which is a hostel.

Can you also include a day trip to Shenzhen in China we have heard that there is a Mall that is worth visiting.

Is it possible to include costs where you can please?

I really appreciate all of your help.

Amy

change of plan
by: hotlegchic18

Since according to many, Macau can be explored with just a day tour and since Augusters Lodge only have the Quad sharing room available for the date that I need then other hostels are a bit pricey compared to HK(though some are cheap but I cannot booked them online), we decided to just stay in Cosmic guesthouse for the whole vacation in HK.

I'm okay with the plans for September 29, September 30 and October 1. Are there still other places like the Aberdeen, Repulse Bay, Stanley Market, Jumbo Kingdom, etc. that we can still visit during these days? I just don't know where to insert them in our schedule maybe during the night. I just want to maximize our vacation in Hong Kong.

Now for October 2, that's when we will take our Macau tour then go back to HK by night. Until what time is the last bus from Macau going back to HK? We just want to explore Macau both by day and by night.

On our last day, October 3, I am planning if we can visit Shenzhen. Is this possible? Also, I want to ride the Peak Tram, go to the Sky Terrace then Madame Tussauds. I believe they have a package to get them all, however, I don't know where to insert this in our schedule. Can you help me?

Do you think it is better to exchange our money here in the Philippines directly from Philippine peso to Hongkong Dollars or to exchange our money first to US dollars here in the Philippines then exchange it to Hongkong dollars when we arrived in HK?

Thanks a lot for all your help.

Re: We'd like to stay 1 night in Macau
by: HKinsider Don

Hi hotlegchic18,

Here are some modification of your itinerary to consider:

Sept 30, Fri: Hotel --> Ngong Ping 360 360 Cable Car Tung Chung Terminal --> Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car Ngong Ping Terminal (suggest you buy a return ticket) --> Citygate Outlets shopping at Tung Chung --> HK Disneyland --> back to hotel

* The "Disney in the Stars" fireworks normally starts at 8:00pm but sometimes 9:00pm on special days.

* With the rest of the attractions that Lantau Island has to offer, I'm sure it may take 1 full-day to explore them all PLUS a shopping at Citygate Outlets in Tung Chung.

* It is recommended to buy the cable car return ticket @ HK$115 as taking a taxi would cost you more (around HK$200) and takes longer time to travel or another option is the Bus No.23 (48 minutes @ HK$17.2) with a route between Tung Chung Bus terminus and Ngong Ping Bus terminus.

Oct 2, Sun: Cosmic Guesthouse --> Hong Kong China Ferry Terminal at TST --> board on Ferry to Macau --> Macau Ferry Terminal --> Macau attractions

* There's NO direct bus route between Hong Kong and Macau. If taking a bus, you need to get into the Lo Wu border in Shenzhen, take the bus from Shenzhen to Zhuhai and then cross the border to Macau.

* To read the instruction in getting to Macau by Ferry from TST (you may quickly scroll down to the post dated "Mar 15, 2011" on that page).

* To read our hostel recommendation for your short stay in Macau.

Day of departure: I would recommend that you stay at TST area for HK Restaurants and HK Shopping at TST area before heading to the airport. In TST, you can easily find a number of restaurants and fast foods restaurant like McDonald or KFC. Eating in good restaurants would cost an average of around HK$75 and HK$30 for fast foods / person.

* Maybe 3 hours before your flight, take the CityBus A21, there's a bus stop opposite to the Mirador Mansion or opposite to Tsim Sha Tsui MTR Station (Exit D1) crossing Nathan Rd.) to the airport for about an hour travel @ HK$33.

* Load your Octopus Card in daily basis, an HK$100 budget should be fine. It is very easy to add value in your octopus card using the add value machine that can be found in any MTR stations or simply approach the costumer service counter.

We'd like to stay 1 night in Macau
by: hotlegchic18

Hi,

Thanks for your suggestion. But I would prefer to stay 1 night in Macau. Can you refer us to a cheap but decent hotel/hostel/guest room there? We're already booked for cosmic guesthouse in HK for 3 nights from our arrival so on the 4th night, we would like to stay in Macau.

(I'm okay with this)
Sept 29, Thu: HK arrival at HKIA --> straight to hotel
(We will arrive around 9:30 PM in HKIA and we'd like to take a bus to our hotel since we are on a budget. Is this still okay?)

On this day, that you suggested:
Sept 30, Fri: Refer to the above Day 1 itinerary as follows;
Hotel --> Disneyland --> Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car Tung Chung Terminal --> Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car Ngong Ping Terminal (suggest you buy a return ticket) --> Citygate Outlets shopping at Tung Chung --> back to hotel
I am actually planning to take the Ngong Ping 360 Cable car first then plan to stay in Disneyland till the fireworks at night. What time is the fireworks? And if this is my plan, do I have to take the cable car just for one way or with return? Are there other places where we can go first before going to Disneyland?

(I'm okay with this)
Oct 1, Sat: Refer to the above Day 2 and Day 3 itinerary as follows;
Hotel --> Ocean Park --> Victoria Harbour --> Avenue of Stars --> Symphony of Lights --> Street Market shopping

(At noon of this day, we will check out Cosmic guesthouse and would go to Macau)
Oct 2, Sun: Refer to the above Day 4 itinerary as follows;
Hotel --> Repulse Bay --> Stanley Market --> sea foods dinner at Jumbo Kingdom --> back to hotel
(We would like to take the bus from HK to Macau because it's cheaper. Can you please suggest a place to stay for 1 night in Macau? It's very hard to get a cheap but good place in there unlike in HK. It is also hard to book with them online) I'm planning to take the skywalk in the Macau Tower.

By noon of October 3, we will check out in our hotel in Macau then go back to HK to catch our flight in HKIA. Do you have any suggestions on other things we can do or places we can still visit when we get back to HK before our flight? Can you also suggest places where we can eat that is not that expensive both in HK and Macau? How much is the budget per meal? And how much do you think we need to load our octopus card?

Thanks in advance for helping us.

1 night stay in Macau
by: hotlegchic18

Hi,

I've read this itinerary and I found it to be very helpful since my boyfriend and I will be in Hongkong for approximately 5 days and 4 nights too (approximately since day 1 we'll arrive Hong Kong in the evening). We'll be in Hong Kong on September 29. We're expected to arrive in HKIA at 9:30PM so I don't know if we can do something else that day except for finding our hotel, settle down and eat our dinner.

We are planning to stay in Hong Kong for the first 3 nights and 1 night in Macau, though, we have to go back to Hong Kong for our flight back to the Philippines at around 7:00PM of October 3. I just thought lately that is a bad idea because when I booked this flight, my intentions were just to visit Hong Kong but I never realized I can visit Macau at the same time. Nevertheless, I still want to experience Macau at the same time.

Hopefully you can help me. Thanks.

SUCCESSFUL HK TRIP!

Re: 4 days itinerary in HK and a day in Macau?
by: HKinsider Don

DAY 4

From Kowloon to HK Airport:
I would recommend the MTR trains plus Airport Express trains. It will only take 42 minutes @ HK$60 using octopus card (actually, you only need to pay the Airport Express while the MTR is free).

Here's how to get there if you're coming from Kowloon (TST, Jordan, Yau Ma Tei, Mong Kok, or Prince Edward station). Take the Tsuen Wan Line trains heading towards Tsuen Wan but you need to get off at Lai King station. Interchange trains to the Tung Chung / Disneyland Resort Line trains going to Tung Chung but just get off right at the next station, Tsing Yi station. Finally, take the Airport Express trains from Tsing Yi station straight to the Airport station at HKIA.

Alternate transportation:
1) By Taxi. Travel time approx 45 minutes @ HK$225.
2) By Bus. There are several bus that have a direct route from Kowloon area to Hong Kong Airport (Ground Transportation Centre).
a. CTB A21, from Haipong Road, TST Nathan Road. 64 minutes @ HK$33.
b. CTB A22, from Battery Street, Kowloon Union church, Jordan Road. 50 minutes @ HK$39.

Hope this will help and enjoy your stay in Hong Kong!

Re: 4 days itinerary in HK and a day in Macau?
by: HKinsider Don

DAY 3

From TST, Kowloon TO HK Disneyland:
The most efficient and cheapest way to travel is through MTR trains. I assume that you're in TST so just look for the nearest Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station entrance / exit. Take the Tsuen Wan Line trains going to Tsuen Wan but you need to get off at Lai King station. Interchange trains to the Tung Chung Line heading to Tung Chung and then get off at Sunny Bay station. Finally, interchange trains to the Disneyland Resort Line to Disneyland Resort station. Total train travel time is 38 minutes @ HK$16.6

Alternate transportation (not recommended):
1) By Taxi. Travel time approx 40 minutes @ HK$175.
2) By Bus. There is no direct bus route from Kowloon to Disneyland. You can take the bus CTB A21 from Tsim Sha Tsui Pier Bus Terminus (adjacent to the Star Ferry Terminal) to Lantau Link Toll Plaza then change to bus CTB R8 to Disneyland Bus Terminus. Total bus travel time is 73 minutes @ HK$33.

From HK Disneyland TO CAUSEWAY BAY DISTRICT:
Again, the most efficient and cheapest way to travel is through MTR trains. Take the Disneyland Resort Line trains from Disneyland station to Sunny Bay station. Interchange trains to the Tung Chung Line going to Central station and get off to that station. Interchange trains to the Island Line trains from Central to Causeway Bay station. Total train travel time is 44 minutes @ HK$21.2.

Alternate transportation (not recommended):
1) By Taxi. Travel time approx 45 minutes @ HK$230.

How far is Causeway Bay District to Wan Chai?
The distance is about 2.2 km, 6 to 8 minutes drive, that could take around 25 to 30 minutes normal walk and it is only 3 minutes by MTR trains between Causeway Bay and Wan Chai stations @ HK$3.7

From Causeway Bay district or Wan Chai TO Kowloon:
Again, the most efficient and cheapest way to travel is through MTR trains. Let's say from Causeway Bay station to TST station. Take the Island Line trains going to Sheung Wan but you need to get off at Admiralty station then interchange trains to the Tsuen Wan Line heading to Tsuen Wan and get off at Tsim Sha Tsui station. Total train travel time is 10 minutes @HK$9.7. If coming from Wan Chai, then follow same travel procedure but it only takes 7 minutes @ HK$7.9.

Re: HK ITINERARY for 5 days and 4 nights including Macau.
by: HKinsider Don

From Museum to Victoria Harbour & Symphony of Lights:
By looking on the map provided above, as you walk from Science Museum to the Museum of Art, actually you'll be walking through along the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade which is part of the so-called Victoria Harbour. And the opposite side in the harbour is the Hong Kong Island (see our site picture logo above) where the nightly show "Symphony of Light" is being shown and that area is the perfect place to watch it.

From Victoria Harbour & Symphony of Lights TO Lan Kwai Fong:
The cheapest and most scenic to travel between TST and Central (Hong Kong Island) is through Star Ferry.

Star Ferry last trip is 11:30pm (HK$2.50 for about 8 minutes ferry ride between TST and Central) and the alternative transport is the taxi (about 10 minutes @ HK$30 from Central to Tsim Sha Tsui or Kowloon area) and the MTR trains (6 minutes HK$7.9, Central to TST) - recommended. Last train that departs from Central is about 1:00am.

Just take the taxi in going back to your hotel if in case you missed the last trip for the Ferry and the MTR trains.

Lan Kwai Fong clubs and bars are usually opens at 6:00pm until 2:00am and usually extend up to 4:00am on Friday and Saturday nights.

DAY 2

From Peak Tram to the Peak:
It is only about 7 minutes Peak Tram ride to the Victoria Peak @ HK$36 for round trip ticket.

From Victoria Peak to Ferry Pier7:
Close to the Peak Tram Terminal is the Peak Tram Bus Terminus (Garden Road Peak Tram station). Take the bus NWFB 15C to Central Pier 7 (10 minutes @ HK$4.2).

From Repulse bay beach to Stanley Market:
It is quite far so we advise to take a taxi about 10 minutes @ HK$25.

From Stanley Market TO FERRY Pier7:
Taking a bus (such as CTB 260, CTB 6A, or GMB 40X) from Stanley Market bus terminus to Central (Exchange Square - close to Pier7) is quite long about 45 minutes but very scenic way to travel @ HK$8.4 while taking a taxi is only about 20 minutes @ HK$30.

Re: HK ITINERARY for 5 days and 4 nights including Macau.
by: HKinsider Don

From Ngong Ping village to Museums in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon.

I suppose you take the Ngong Ping Cable Car from Ngong Ping village to Tung Chung, then the best and most efficient way to travel is by taking the MTR trains from Tung Chung MTR station all the way down to Tsim Sha Tsui.

Here's how to get there by MTR trains:
Take the Tung Chung Line trains heading towards Hong Kong station but you need to get off at Lai King station. Interchange trains to the Tsuen Wan Line trains going to Central but you get off at Tsim Sha Tsui station then take the Exit B2. Total train travel time is 38 minutes @ HK$13.8

Follow the below walking route map to the Hong Kong museums. From exit B2, could be about 10 minutes walk to the Museum of History and the Science Museum and then 15 minutes walk to the Avenue of Stars and to the adjacent Museum of Art and Space Museum.

Hong Kong airport to Ngong Ping village.

There is no direct bus route from airport to Ngong Ping village. But there are some connecting bus routes instead and I would recommend this bus route: HKIA --> Tung Chung Town Centre Bus Terminus --> Ngong Ping village.

HKIA --> Tung Chung Town Centre Bus Terminus, take any of these bus:

a) From Airport Bus Terminal (Urban Taxi stand), Bus NLB A35 to Tung Chung Town Centre Bus Terminus, only a short walk to the Citygate Outlets and Ngong Ping Cable Car Tung Chung Terminal. Travel time is 11 minutes @ HK$15.

b) From Airport (Ground Transportation Center), Bus CTB E22B to Citygate Outlets at Tat Tung Road. Travel time is 10 minutes @ HK$24.

See this map for the respective bus stop location at Tung Chung area.

View HKIA, Disneyland, Ngong Ping 360, and Ngong Ping village map in a larger map

Here's your option. Upon getting to Tung Chung, you can be able to deposit your luggage to the storage lockers available for rental at Citygate Outlets. Big size storage lockers has a dimension of 22 X 31 X 35 inches (LWH) that cost HK$20 per two hours while the small size storage lockers has a dimension of 15 X 31 X 15 inches (LWH) that cost HK$10 per two hours.

Proceed to Ngong Ping village by taking the bus NLB 23 or NLB 2 from Tung Chung Bus Terminus (Terminal) to Ngong Ping Bus Terminus (Terminal) at Ngong Ping village. Total bus travel time is 68 minutes @ HK$32.2 for about 40 bus stops.

Day 4 HK travel tour and map:
Repulse Bay <-> Stanley Market <-> and the famous Street Market shopping.

View Repulse Bay, Stanley Market, and the famous Street Market shopping. in a larger map

Go straight to Repulse Bay early in the morning (taxi fare about HK$100 from TST area approx 25 minutes). Then proceed to shopping at the popular Stanley Market, one of the most popular street market in Hong Kong could be just around 10 minutes by taxi.

Late afternoon from Stanley Market, go back to Kowloon area for to continue shopping at the well-known Street Market theme street shopping in Hong Kong.


Day 5 - a day tour in Macau.
Full day, please click here for more information specially on how to get there.

Day 3 HK travel tour and map:
HK Museums <-> The Peak <-> Madamme Tussaud's HK <-> Nightlife (we recommend at Lan Kwai Fong).

View HK Museums, The Peak, Madamme Tussauds, Nightlife at Lan Kwai Fong in a larger map

In the morning, take a visit to the four popular HK Museums that you can find in the map. This is one reason why we recommend you earlier to stay somewhere in Tsim Sha Tsui area as those places could only be a walking distance from your hotel.

Afternoon, you may take the Star Ferry to Central and then proceed to the Peak by taking the bus 15C close to the Central Ferry Terminal.

Evening from the Peak, go back to Central area and take a walk to Lan Kwai Fong to settle down with a beer.

Day 2 HK travel tour and map:
Ocean Park <-> Victoria Harbour <-> Avenue of Stars <-> Symphony of Lights.

View Ocean Park, Victoria Harbour, Avenue of Stars and Symphony of Lights. in a larger map

Ocean Park is huge, lot of fun and most popular attractions in Hong Kong Island (click here to view map of HK attractions in around this area) that is why it must be a full-day activity to take the most of it. A taxi from Tsim Sha Tsui area to the park would cost around HK$100 approx 20 mins.

From Ocean Park (could be around 4:30pm), get back straight to Tsim Sha Tsui and get yourself into the Avenue of Stars. If you're taking MTR trains, take Exit J at East Tsim Sha Tsui station. Take a walk along the harbour and stay on that place and wait to watch the Symphony of Light that will start at 7:30pm.

Re: HK ITINERARY for 5 days and 4 nights including Macau.

Hi, it is our pleasure to help you to make your Hong Kong visit an enjoyable and most memorable one!

Here's my suggested itinerary for your coming visit to Hong Kong and Macau based on the places that you've mentioned.

Day 1 HK travel tour and map. (HKIA <-> Disneyland <-> Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car Tung Chung Terminal <-> Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car Ngong Ping Terminal)

View HKIA, Disneyland, Ngong Ping 360, and Ngong Ping village map in a larger map

You can tour these popular Hong Kong attractions in a day since they are closed to each other and both are located at Lantau Island (click here to view map of popular attractions around HK outlying islands) close to the airport. If you travel without any bulky luggage, you can go straight to Disneyland from the airport by taking a taxi as recommended for your group (click here to know HOW and other options in getting there) otherwise, you need to leave you things at your hotel in the morning and then proceed to HK Disneyland. Both attractions opens @ 10:00am.

From Disneyland (could be around 3:30pm), proceed to the Tung Chung Ngong Ping 360 Terminal again by taxi or MTR trains (16 minutes @ HK$11.6 per person). Take the Ngong Ping 360 cable car (25 minutes @ HK$80/person; HK$41/child aged 3-11; and HK$65/seniors aged 65 or above) to Ngong Ping.

After touring around Ngong Ping village, you can go straight to your hotel from there by taking a taxi and the fare could be around HK$300 approx 30 mins.

Re: ITINERARY for 5 days and 4 nights including Macau.
by: Anonymous

Surely this info will help us a lot. But can you suggest an ITINERARY for 5 days and 4 nights including Macau. So that we will know which place we are visiting first, also places that is near from each other so that we can save a penny when travelling. I really don't know how they are far from each other and then the hours of travel.

Thanks a lot 4 giving attention to my question coz I know your tired already answering all this stuff.

Re: 4 days itinerary in HK and a day in Macau? How to get there? Cost? Cheap but safe place for accommodation?
by: hk-insider don

First of all, this is what I always say to people like you as first-timers in Hong Kong;

* Hong Kong is a very tourist-friendly city, signs are all bilingual and are clearly visible in almost everywhere so you can hardly get lost but knowing the MTR exits first before you go is a huge advantage and time saving.

* Do not be afraid in exploring around HK, in the case you get lost, just head to the nearest MTR exit or take a taxi and give your address (remember to take your hotel address with you if possible with Chinese language written).

* Hong Kong is synonymous to walking as you can see most people are always walking and walking fast. You should prepare yourself for long walks so it is advisable to wear a walking or running shoes.

* When taking public escalators, always stay at right side, left side of it is for people who are in a hurry, do not block their path by staying on this side or you'll be sorry when you get hit by them.

* Standard of living is much higher than the Philippines so expect everything to be more expensive.

* The MTR trains will take you to most places around Hong Kong, if not, the bus will. In your case of 8 persons plus kids, I think it is cheaper to take a taxi by re-grouping into two groups and take two taxi cabs. It could be more convenient and efficient alternative to the trains and buses.

For your Hong Kong budget accommodation, here are my recommendations (staying somewhere in Tsim Sha Tsui area is always a great advantage);

Budget/Good Value Hotels:
BP International in Tsim Sha Tsui
Bridal Teahouse (YMT) - Cheap but Decent 1 Star Hotel

Hostels:
Mirador Mansion at Tsim Sha Tsui.

Most recommended attractions and places to visit while in Hong Kong:
1. The Peak (includes Madame Tassaud's Wax Museum - BEST SEEN AT SUNSET/DUSK)
2. Ocean Park
3. Disneyland
4. Tsim Sha Tsui Waterfront (Avenue of Stars and Symphony of Lights)
5. Tsim Sha Tsui District
6. Causeway Bay District - shopping and dining
7. Mongkok District (street markets - bargain sopping)
8. Ngong Pin Village (Giant Buddha)
9. Museums
10. Stanley / Aberdeen (Jumbo Floating Restaurant)

Related discussion about must-see places in Hong Kong:
* 3-days visit in Hong Kong and a day in Macau.

Going to Macau:
* 1 Hour ferry ride to Macau (Visa NOT Required for Macau, Passport needed).

Hope this help and enjoy your stay in Hong Kong!
