Re: first time in hk with one senior citizen
by: HKinsider Don

Hi tess,

First, Guangdong Guest House is conveniently located at 36-44 Nathan Road, B2, 5/F, Block B, Chungking Mansion, Hong Kong.

Here's an efficient route to get into Chungking Mansions from any of the two Disneyland hotels:

--> Take the shuttle bus from the hotel to the Disneyland bus terminal that is very close to the Disneyland Resort MTR station, here's the shuttle bus schedule.

--> Get into the MTR station --> take the train to Sunny Bay station --> interchange trains to the Tung Chung Line and get off at Lai King station --> interchange trains to the Tsuen Wan Line and get off at Tsim Sha Tsui station (39 mins @ HK$17) and take Exit G. Chungking Mansions is just a block away towards south of Nathan Rd.

RE: HK Itinerary for 4D/3N
by: HKinsider Don

Hello Erma,

When you arrive at HKIA, since you'll stay 4days in HK, I would suggest that you just buy an Octopus card to each of you. Note that there's a CHILD octopus card for children below 12 yrs old for half fare.

Basically, an Octopus card will cost HK$150 with HK$100 as stored value and HK$50 refundable deposit. There's NO need to load your Octopus card up to HK$1,000. I strongly suggest that you just keep its stored value under HK$200 as it is very easy to add value in it thru Add Value Machines or to any customer's service counters in any MTR station or even at convenient stores like 7-Eleven when the stored value almost gets to zero. Don't worry, you can still use it even if the value becomes negative in your last ride. This is for safe reason in worst case that you lost your octopus card.

Your itinerary listed above looks fine to me I just confused a little bit in your last question -- "Do you think we should visit Ocean Park for the whole day and just visit Disneyland for one day?" as you already have Ocean Park in your Day 1.

For Disneyland, it can be done in a 1 day with a fireworks show finale to make it a complete whole day visit and maybe you spare for a day in Macau would be a great adventure or spare it for a visit at HK Museums your kid will surely love it.

Hongkong Itinerary for 4D/3N
by: Erma

Hi Don. I am sorry I forgot to add that if we are to just spend one day at Disneyland, would it be wise to plan a day trip to Macau? Is it worth it? If you think I could add few more places to see around Disneyland, Ocean Park, and Lantau Island please let me know. Thank you so much!

HK Itinerary for 4D/3N
by: Erma

HI Don! First of all I want to thank you for your info on my previous inquiry. I have created an itinerary for my daughter and I, please let me know if my transportation choice would be wise or if you can suggest something better. I intend to buy the octopus MTR card. Would it be wise to just buy 1 card or 2 card for me and my daughter and load it with HK$1000.00 or HK$500 each ? I read about the octopus MTR card that has RT fare for Airport transfer and unlimited transfer to MTR for 3 days. I figured since we will be essentially traveling for 4 days it would be better to buy a card and load it. I calculated our total transportation fare to be roughly HK$750 including the cable ride to Lantau Island and Airport Express Train.

These are my attractions and transportation plan. Please let me know if you have a better way. Thank you again in advance.

Re: ngong ping
by: HKinsider stellar

Hi Chanee :)

Cable car service is temporarily closed for service for about two months now but let's hope that it'll be open for service by the time you get there. You may opt to visit Ngong Ping Village by taxi or by bus, read travel instruction here ( post dated May 29, 2010 ).

If I may add, you may ride the cable car in Ocean Park offering a spectacular view along the route of Southern Hong Kong Island between the park's "Lowland" and "Highland" attractions.

Re: From ferry terminal to Ocean Park

There's No bus that have a direct route from Hong Kong - Macau Ferry Terminal to Ocean Park. If you want, you can take about 5 mins walk to the Central Ferry Pier, where you'll find a bus stop of bus 629 that will take you to Ocean Park entrance (30 mins @ HK$10.6).

Since your in group, it would be more efficient to just take a taxi straight to Ocean Park from the Ferry terminal that would cost around HK$75 for 11 mins drive.

Yes, the 4 HK attractions you've mentioned above is very doable in 3 full days in Hong Kong.

Here's a sample itinerary to maximized your time:

Day 1: Disneyland --> then you may take a street market shopping at night.

Day 2: Ocean Park --> then you may still even opt to visit the Victoria Peak and then proceed to Victoria harbour at night for Avenue of Stars and watch the Symphony of Lights.

Day 3: Noah's Ark --> Ngong Ping. These attractions were closer to each other (located in Lantau Island) and 3 to 4 hours to explore each is enough.

Thanks very much, HKinsider Don!

By any chance, do you know also what the entrance passes to Disneyland and Ocean Park does not include? That might be easier than listing what the passes might include.

Re: luggage counters in ocean park and weather in april
by: HKinsider Don

Yes there are storage lockers available for rental at Ocean Park and details as follows;

* BIG lockers: price = HK$95 / size = 23.6 X 18 X 37.4 inches
* Small lockers: price = HK$70 / size = 17.7 X 15 X 25.5 inches

The weather in Hong Kong in April is spring (March-May) and should be great with average temperature of around 25degC. Should be no problem for light clothing even in night time.

Thank you, HKinsider stellar. The information given was very helpful.

I have a few questions here. If I go to Macau. Is it possible I can go to watch both Cirque du Soleil and The house of Dancing Water + visit all the places in Macau for 2 days 1 night? My flight to back to Malaysia will be 5pm. I assuming we need to check in 2hrs earlier, which means around 3pm we need to be in the airport. If there is time or budget constrain, which did you suggest us to watch?

Thank you. Hope to hear from you soon~

What can you suggest regarding the nearest catholic church from our hotel prince Marco polo? I would like also to ask, how many minutes walk from our hotel to the star ferry, I found out that is cheaper compare with mtr.

Re: Pls help me with Directions.

@ Jerose,

The issuing of China VISA at China Borders such as HK-Shenzhen, Macau-Zhuhai or any other popular gateways are being cancelled since from the China Olympics up to now unless you are a British citizen or an HK ID holder.

You can apply for a China VISA in you country's consulate office in Hong Kong but it takes a day or two to get it so better apply for it before your trip to avoid any hassle.

In your way to exit after China immigration check, you'll find some Money Exchanger open counters where you can change some of your HKD to RMB (Chinese Yuan). Those are safe place to change your money. Latest conversion: 1 Hong Kong dollar = 0.8157 Chinese yuan

@ Jerose,

Please scroll up to read the instruction in getting to Tung Chung from Golden Crown Hotel by MTR trains (bus is not recommended), just follow it in reverse order. Tung Chung TMR station trains service hours is from 05:52am to 01:25am.

* Here's the efficient and also the most scenic route in getting to The Peak from Golden Crown Hotel in TST:
Walk about 10 mins to the TST Star Ferry Pier --> take the Star Ferry to Central Pier (9 minutes @ HK$2.5) --> walk to the nearby Central Pier Bus terminus --> take the bus 15C to the Peak Tram Lower terminal (10 minutes @ HK$4.2) --> take the Peak Tram up to the Peak (@HK$40 - round trip ticket). Follow same instruction in getting back to the hotel in reverse order.

* Here's how to get to HK Disneyland from Golden Crown Hotel in TST by MTR trains (bus is not recommended).
Get into the nearby TST MTR station --> take the Tsuen Wan Line and get off at Lai King station --> interchange trains to the Tung Chung Line and get off at Sunny Bay station --> then finally, interchange trains to the Disneyland Resort Line that will bring you straight to Disneyland (38 minutes @ HK$17).

From Disneyland, I think it is more convenient to take a taxi straight to HK airport (about 35 minutes @ HK$110) or, you can take the MTR trains from Disneyland station to Tung Chung station (16 minutes @ HK$11.9) and then take a taxi from Tung Chung to HKIA for about 10 minutes drive @ HK$45.

* Getting to Window of the World (in mainland China) from Tsim Sha Tsui. You need to get ready with your Chinese VISA before trip.

By trains: Get into the TST MTR station --> take the Tsuen Wan Line train and get off at Mong Kok station --> interchange trains to the Kwun Tong Line and get off at Kowloon Tong station --> interchange trains to the East Rail Line and get of at Lo Wu station (53 minutes @ HK$34.8) --> undergo immigration formalities for HK and then China --> upon exit, you can opt for a quick shopping at nearby Luo Hu Commercial Center, popular place for bargain items --> get into the subway Metro Train station --> take the "Luo Bao" Line train and get off at "She Jie Zhi Chuang" or Window of the World station (31 minutes @ RMB5). Just follow same route in reverse order when getting back to the hotel in TST.

Re: HK Trip
by: HKinsider Don

@ Rafa,

Please scroll up for location details of Shamrock hotel.

Taking the MTR trains from Shamrock hotel to the Hong Kong China Ferry terminal at TST is not a good idea since you still need a long walk from the TST MTR station (Exit A1) to the ferry terminal so I would suggest you take a taxi cab for only about 7 minutes @ HK$25 drive from the hotel straight to the ferry terminal.

Re: From Ocean Park to Peak going to TST Waterfront

Hello Ray,

Yes, aside from taxi, there is other option in getting to the Peak from Admiralty and here's how...

Get into the Admiralty MTR subway station and take Island Line train and just get off at the next station, Central station (3 minutes @ HK$3.8) and then take Exit J2. Upon exit, walk about 12 minutes to the peak tram, here's to view the walking route map between Central MTR station Exit J2 and the Peak Tram Lower Terminal at Garden Road, Central.

Getting to TST Waterfront from The Peak:
Get back to the Peak Tram Lower terminal and nearby you'll find the Peak Tram Bus Terminal. Take the Bus 15C to Central Ferry Pier Bus Terminus (10 minutes @ HK$4.2). Walk about 3 minutes to nearby Star Ferry Pier no.7 and take the Star Ferry to Tsim Sha Tsui, 9 minutes @ HK$2.5. Then you can walk about 5 minutes along the TST promenade to visit the Avenue of Stars or watch the Symphony of Lights show that starts every 8:00pm. Here's to see the route location map (scroll down until to the post date "May 07, 2010" on that page).

The most economical way to travel between HK airport and Golden Crown Guest House is thru CTB A21 bus. Bus travel time is about 64 minutes @ HK$33. Please see map above for the bus stop location.

Here's my personal itinerary recommendation for your 3 days stay in HK:

Day 1. HK Disneyland and wait until 8:00pm to watch the fireworks show (getting there instruction can be read on top of this page). Actually, you can go straight to Disneyland from HK airport then check in to your hotel afterwards.

Day 2. Ocean Park --> The Peak --> Avenue of Stars and watch the Symphony of Lights --> Street Markets - Ladies' market for street market shopping.

Getting to Ocean Park from Golden Crown Guest House: Pls follow instruction on top of this page.

Getting to the Peak from Ocean Park: Get back to Admiralty by taking the same bus no. 629 and then just take a taxi from Admiralty straight to the Peak Tram Lower station (about 10 minutes @ HK$25). Take the Peak Tram up to the Peak (7 minutes @ HK$40 round trip ticket).

Getting to Tsim Sha Tsui (TST) promenade from the Victoria Peak to visit the Avenue of Stars and watch the Symphony of Lights also, here's a travel guide in getting to Ladies' market from TST promenade.

Day 3. Shopping at the HK Shopping - popular shopping mall around TST area.

The bus stop located at 26 Lai Chi Kok Road outside Metropark Hotel Mongkok after Prince Edward Road West (please refer to the map above).

Hello! my family is going to Hongkong this coming November. We will be arriving at the airport at 1am of Nov. 4, 2011. Here are my questions.

1. Is there a taxi available at 1 am going to Mongkok that can accommodate for 5 persons? How much will be the fare? or what are other alternative transportation?

2. Can you give us detailed directions from Kingland Mansion, Mongkok to these destinations: (a) peak tram, (b) Ocean Park, (c) Ngong Ping, (d) Macau.

I will be very glad if someone could answer my queries. Thanks in advance.

Re: HK attractions route.
by: HKinsider Don

Hello Patrick,

Here's how to get from Taisan guesthouse to the Peak.

From Taisan guesthouse, take about 8 minutes walk to the Tsim Sha Tsui Star Ferry pier --> get on board on the Star Ferry to Central (9 minutes @ HK$2.5) --> walk to the nearby Central Star Ferry Bus Terminus --> take the bus 15C to the Peak Tram Lower terminal (10 minutes @ HK$4.2) --> Take the Peak Tram up to the Peak (7 minutes thrilling ride @ HK$40 round trip ticket) --> Get back to TST by following this route in reverse order.

Getting from Taisan guesthouse to the Ocean Park is explained in the top of this page. In your case, the nearest MTR exit is the TST MTR Exit B1. Just follow the same route when getting back from Ocean Park to Taisan guesthouse in reverse order.

We're bringing big and small kids.

Can you help us some tips on how to get easy from Taisan guesthouse to peak tram and back (will the peak tower bus terminus goes back down?)

And also, from Taisan guesthouse to ocean park and back again.

Thank you so much, God Bless.

Re: HK-Macau tour
by: HKinsider Don

Hi Grei,

Basically, you have only 2 days and a half in your HK trip so I afraid going to Macau is too tight for your schedule.

So I suggest this itinerary for your HK trip with timetable.

August 24: Arrival at and lunch at the HK Airport (12:00 noon - 1:00pm) --> Proceed to TST by taking bus CTB A21 (just follow the instructions above) and check-in at Taisan Guest House (1:00 pm - 2:30pm) --> proceed to the The Peak, ferry from TST to Central, bus 15C to the Peak tram then take the tram to the Peak (you take your dinner at the Peak and stay there until 7:00pm) --> back to TST to visit the Avenue of Stars and watch the Symphony of Lights that starts at 8:00pm --> take a walk back to your hotel.

August 25: HK Disneyland (park hours: 10:00am - 9:00pm). The park offers a whole day activity and end with a spectacular "Disney in the Stars" fireworks that usually starts at 8:00 pm (must see) --> HK Shopping - Citygate Outlets in Tung Chung (just two MTR stops from Disneyland) --> back to the hotel thru MTR.

August 26: Ocean Park (park hours: 10:00am - 8:00pm). The park also offers a whole day activity --> get back to Kowloon area for Street Markets - theme street market shopping.

In case you still want to visit Macau, I suggest you cancel either Disneyland or Ocean Park trip to save a day for Macau trip.

I suggest you to read the ff related topic discussion for more information:

Re: Hk airport to Taisan Guesthouse
by: HKinsider Don

Hello Patrick,

I assume that you're refering to Hong Kong Taisan Guest House Burlington branch which is located at 15 /F, Burlington House, 91-94 Nathan Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong.
Tel: +852 2366 8273 or 2366 8414

Here's the location map of Hong Kong Taisan Guest House Burlington branch and its nearest transportation access points:

View YIU FAI Guesthouse in a larger map

I highly suggest you take the bus (CTB A21) from HK Airport Ground Transportation Centre then get off at bus stop no.13 (counting Airport GTC as bus stop no.1). That bus stop is located just steps away from Taisan Guest House (refer to the map), good for group tour and I think your kids will love it. Bus travel time is approx 62 minutes @ HK$33.

Taking a taxi could be fine in your group but it's quite expensive. It is about 45 minutes drive @ HK$300 (including luggage fee).

During hostel check-in. I advise 4 people will check in and get a quad room (with 2 double beds) then the other 2 will just sneak-in or go directly to the room later on, don't check-in all together. Most hostels don't really care about sneak-ins provided it is not too many.

Enjoy your stay in HK!

Re: Directions from Ocean Park to Shamrock hotel. Shamrock hotel to Citygate Outlets and Mongkok

Please scroll up to read location information including map of Shamrock hotel in Jordan.

Getting to Mong Kok from Shamrock hotel and vice versa is quick and easy by MTR trains. Mong Kok MTR station is only two stations away from your hotel heading north (refer to map above): Jordan --> Yau Ma Tei --> Mong Kok.

Get into the Jordan MTR station and take the Tsuen Wan Line trains to Mong Kok station, 5 minutes train travel time @ HK$3.7

Here's how to get from Shamrock hotel to Tung Chung for HK Shopping - Citygate Outlets and NP 360.
Get into the Jordan MTR station and take the Tsuen Wan Line trains heading towards Tsuen Wan station and get off at Lai King station. Interchange trains to the Tung Chung Line going to Tung Chung station and get to that last station then take exit B if your heading to the Ngong Ping 360 terminal or take Exit C for Citygate outlet (refer to map below).

Note that Ocean park and HK Disneyland offers a full-day activity so you need to split these two attractions by allocating a day each so that your itinerary will go as follows;

* Day 1: HK Disneyland --> Ngong Ping 360 --> back to Tung Chung for Citygate Outlets (suggest you buy a cable car round trip ticket) --> back to your hotel at Jordan.

* Day 2: Ocean Park --> The Peak --> Central Ferry Pier --> TST promenade by Star Ferry --> Avenue of Stars and Symphony of Lights (recommended) --> Street Markets - Temple street night market shopping (very close to your hotel).

Re: Ferry terminal to Regal Oriental hotel
by: HKinsider Don

I suggest you take the Macau to Hong Kong China Ferry Terminal ferry route that will bring you to the China Hong Kong City at 33 Canton Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong.

Upon arrival, adjacent to the Ferry Terminal you'll find the Bus Terminus, take the bus KMB 14 and get off at bus stop no. 12, PRINCE EDWARD RD EAST NEAR SA PO RD (shown in the map above). Bus travel time is about 19 minutes @ HK$6.1 then take a short walk to Regal Oriental hotel.

The bus service hours is from 06:24 to 00:35 with 15 minutes interval.

OR, another option is to take a taxi that will bring you straight to Regal Oriental hotel entrance for about 13 minutes drive @ HK$35.

Note that there's no direct access to MTR station that is close to your hotel.

Re: 1st time travel in HK

Here's a recommendation for a 4 days itinerary in touring around Hong Kong attractions, see map here.

Taking a taxi while roaming around HK would be a great option in your group.

Taxis in HK are color coded as follows;

* the color BLUE taxis which serve all destinations in Lantau and the airport area.

* the color RED taxis (urban taxis) that serve all destinations throughout Hong Kong while

* the color GREEN taxis are only allowed at New Territories (N.T.) and specific roads in Lantau.

Here are the taxi fares (by color):

Flag down (for the first 2 kilometers):
Red taxi = HK$15
Blue taxi = HK$12
Green Taxi = HK$12.5

Ngong Ping 360 --> Tung Chung MTR station
You can take a taxi (recommended) from Ngong Ping village or take the cable car back to Tung Chung cable car terminal then a short walk to the Tung Chung MTR station.

Also, you can take the bus NLB 23 or NLB 2 to Tung Chung Bus Terminus (Terminal) from Ngong Ping Bus Terminus (Terminal) at Ngong Ping village then walk to the adjacent Tung Chung MTR station. Total bus travel time is 68 minutes @ HK$32.2 for about 40 bus stops (not recommended).

Re: Disneyland to Hongkong Int'l Airport
by: HKinsider Don

We recommend two ways of travel option from Hong Kong Disneyland to Hong Kong International Airport.

First, the most convenient and highly recommended specially if you travel in a group of 3 to 5 people is by taking a taxi. The taxi fare from Disney straight to HKIA will cost around HK$110 at about 35 minutes drive.

Second, much cheaper and also an efficient way of travel is by taking the MTR train PLUS Airport Express train, highly recommended specially if you travel alone.

From HK Disneyland, take a short walk to the Disneyland Resort MTR station. Take the Disneyland Resort Line trains going to Sunny Bay station. Interchange trains to the Tung Chung Line heading to Hong Kong station but you need to get of at Tsing Yi station. At Tsing MTR station, take the Airport Express train that will take you straight to the Airport station at HKIA. 35 minutes train travel time @ HK$60 (using octopus card).

Re: Medications for diabetes when traveling to HK

HK Airport has body temperature scanner sensors along the way to immigration counters so that all passengers will pass through it.

The only concern if you're traveling with fever is that they will definitely know your body condition and then they will hold you. Other than that, you're allowed to bring your medicines for reasonable quantity just for personal use and should be NO problem and you should have NOTHING to declare.

Dorsett Seaview Hotel is located at 268 Shanghai Street, Yau Ma Tei Kowloon, Hong Kong.
Tel no. +852 2782 0882

Dorsett Seaview Hotel from HKIA:

The most efficient way to travel from Airport to Dorsett Seaview Hotel is by Airport Express Trains PLUS MTR trains. Train travel time is only 37 minutes @ HK$60 (using octopus card).

Take the Airport Express trains to Tsing Yi station. Change to MTR trains at Tsing Yi station and take the Tung Chung Line going to Hong Kong station but you need to get off at Lai King station. Interchange trains to the Tsuen Wan Line going to Central station but you get off at Yau Ma Tei station then take Exit C then walk about 5 minutes to the hotel.

Ocean Park and Victoria Peak in your Day 1 is doable since both attractions are located at Hong Kong Island. A whole day at Ocean Park and afternoon to evening at the Peak (recommended).

Ocean Park from Dorsett Seaview Hotel:

Take the MTR Tsuen Wan Line trains at Yau Ma Tei MTR station heading to Central station but you need to get off at Admiralty station then take Exit B, 8 minutes @ HK$9.7. Upon exit, you'll find the Admiralty (west) Bus Terminus, take the express bus CTB no. 629 straight to Ocean Park entrance for about 15 minutes @ HK$10.6.

Peak from Ocean Park:

Take same bus no. 629 back to Admiralty MTR station. From admiralty station, I suggest you take a taxi (since you're a group of 4 people) to the Peak Tram Terminus, about 10 minutes @ HK$30. Then take the Peak Tram straight to the Peak, 7 minutes @ HK$36 (round trip).

Day 2: I suggest HK Shopping, HK Museums, Street Markets (specially at Kowloon side), Avenue of Stars and Victoria Harbour - Symphony of Lights at Victoria Harbour.

Day 3: Macau for whole day (click link to see detailed info in getting there).

Day 4: HK Disneyland whole day then proceed to Airport.
Yau Ma Tei MTR station, Tsuen Wan Line trains --> Lai King station, Tung Chung Line --> Sunny Bay station, Disneyland Resort Line --> Disneyland station. 34 minutes @ HK$16.6

From HK Disneyland, take a taxi to the HKIA, about 30 minutes @ HK$115.

Here's the easiest and most efficient way if you're going to Macau from Mirador Mansion.

Mirador Mansion is located at 54-64 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong (Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station Exits D1 or D2). It is about 10 minutes walk to the Hong Kong China Ferry Terminal (First Ferry) which is located at China Hong Kong City 33 Canton Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong.

This is the map showing the markers and the walking route from Mirador Mansion to the China Ferry Terminal.

View Mirador Mansions to China Ferry Terminal in a larger map

From Mirador Mansions, walk across to the Nathan Rd. then proceed along Haiphong Rd. then turn right along Kowloon Park Drive and turn left across to the Canton Rd to the First Ferry Terminal.

The Ferry Ticketing Office at Shop 3 and 8B, 1/F, China Ferry Terminal, 33 Canton Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong service hours is from 6:30am to 10:30 pm daily while the First Ferry (Macau) Ticketing Office in Avenida da Amizade, Floor 2, Shop 2007, Macau Ferry Terminal, Macau also opens from 6:30am to 10:30 pm daily.

The first trip from HK to Macau and Macau to HK is 7:00 am and last trip is at 22:30 pm with a frequency of every 30 minutes.

Fare:

Hello. We'll be staying @ MIRADOR MANSION in Kowloon and we want to go to Macau esp. Venetian hotel and Ruins of St. Paul.

Our problem is we don't know what's the easiest way to get there (transportation), route, and office hours of the transportation cause we're not gonna have an overnight stay in Macau.

Thank you.
