Hi!


Can you please suggest an itinerary for our HK-Macau trip on Sept 23-25,2010. We are arriving in Hong Kong International airport at 7:40 am on Sept 23.

We are planning to stay at Ramada Hotel in Chatham Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui. From the airport, how do we get to Ramada Hotel? How long would it take us to get there?

We plan to go to Macau on the 2nd day for just a day tour. On our last day, we are taking the 7:30pm flight back to Manila. Would it be possible for you to include the fares & fees & time it would take to travel from one destination to another?

Thank you very much!

April 28
* From your hotel to the Ferry terminal. Actually, you can take ferries at Hong Kong China Ferry Terminal located at China Hong Kong City, 33 Canton Road, Tsim Sha Tsui. Here's how to get there (post dated Mar 15, 2011).

Also, I suggest you take the ferries @ Hong Kong Macau Ferry terminal in Sheung Wan as ferries are more efficient in there. Departs every 15 minutes and have a 24 hrs service.

* First time in Macau, pls read the entire thread to give you the basic details you need.

* Most of the hotels in Macau have a shuttle bus upon arrival at Macau Ferry terminal. Most attractions in Macau are located just close to each other and taking a taxi would be the most efficient way of transport.

* When you get back to Hong Kong, could be late in the evening, I would suggest Lan Kwai Fong which is close to the ferry terminal.

April 29
Getting to HK airport. An efficient travel option is to take the bus A21. About an hour travel between TST to Airport (GTC) @ HK$33.
You can find the bus stop across Nathan rd from your hotel (see map below)...

View Citybus A21 bus stops at TST in a larger map

Hope this help and enjoy your HK and Macau trip!

re: HK Tour
by: hkinsider Don

@ Nina,

Here are my comments and suggestion for your intitial itinerary;

April 26
* Here are travel options in getting to HK Disneyland from HK airport.

* There are luggage lockers at Hong Kong Disneyland (scroll down to the post dated Apr 27, 2011 on that page) for rent that you can use to stow your luggage before exploring the park.

* Must see/try attractions in Ocean Park: Giant Panda, SkyStar and SkyFair Celebrations, Kids' World Playground (if coming with kids), Emperors of The Sky, cable car, (besides the thrilling rides) Atoll Reef, Dolphin show and Sea Lion Fun Time Show, Whiskers & Friends Show, Ocean Park Tower, the long escalator to Tai Shue Wan.

April 27
* Disneyland to Ngong Ping 360. MTR trains from Disneyland to Sunny Bay station --> change to Tung Chung Line and get off at next station - Tung Chung station (16 mins @ HK$11.9). Take Exit B for NP 360 Cable car terminal.

* Or, take Exit C for Citygate Outlets and then stow your luggage in there before heading to Ngong Ping.

* Cable car ride between Tung Chung and Ngong Ping will take about 25 mins @ HK$125 - for round trip ticket, recommended. Or here's to read NP360 pricing table.

* NP 360 opening hours: Weekdays = 10:00am - 6:00pm; Weekends & Public Holidays = 9:00am - 6:30pm

* At least 4 hours to explore Ngong Ping will cover most of the attractions NP has to offer.

* Getting to Ocean Park from Ngong Ping. Cable car back to Tung Chung --> Tung Chung MTR train all the way to Hong Kong station --> transfer to Central station --> Island Line train and get off at Admiralty station and then take Exit B (40 minutes @ HK$18.8) --> bus 629 straight to Ocean Park (25 mins @ HK$10.6).

* Ocean Park has also luggage lockers for rent. The park opening hours is 10:00am to 7:30pm

* From Ocean Park, could be Victoria Peak but not ideal if your carrying your luggage. You may proceed to the TST waterfront to visit Avenue of Stars and watch the Symphony of Lights show at 8:00pm

Re: Clothes to pack
by: HKinsider Don

Hello Casey,

It is about in the middle of spring season on April 26-29 where average temperature ranges from 18degC - 27degC with humidity about 82% so you don't need to worry about the type of clothes you packed. You can wear anything you want. Evenings can be cool so you may need lightweight jackets.

I think you're correct, saying that women high fashion clothes are rampant in Hong Kong specially on that time.

Clothes to pack
by: Casey

Hello! I have a new question. :) What clothing for both men and women do we need to pack for our stay on April 26-29? I heard for women high fashion clothes are rampant? :)

HK Disneyland
by: Casey

Hello! Thank you for replying. :) I got the idea about discounted disneyland tickets from a photo of a friend who just recently visited HK. The tickets are offered for just 320 HK$. Anyway, can you suggest a whole day itinerary for our disneyland experience? Thanks a lot! :)

Thanks much!!
by: Ef from Phils

Hello there...

Thank you so much...I think Im almost done with my detailed itinerary considering that it's our first time in HK...

Thanks a lot for your suggestions....

Re: Thanks much
by: HKinsider Don

@ Ef from Phils,

1) To give you some overview of how much you spend while in HK, please see this page.

2) Just purchase an Octopus Card (details in this page) each one of you and "Child Octopus Card" for your kids below 12 yrs. old.

3) Taxis in Hong Kong can accommodate 5 persons maximum (child or adult).

4) Children below 12 yrs old and seniors above 65 yrs. old are usually entitled to a half fare in most of HK's public transportation like buses, mtrs, and ferries.

Re: Queries.
by: HKinsider Don

Hello Casey,

Taxes should be based on the number of days of your stay.

There's NO such kind of Disneyland tickets discounts but they offer some reduced priced on package basis. Normally, the "General Admission Ticket" price is @ HK$399 but if you plan to visit the park twice in a week then you can purchase a "2-Day Ticket" @ HK$499,

The advantage of getting the ticket online is to avoid the usual long line if buying it at the park's entrance.

Thanks much!!!!
by: Ef from Phils

Thanks so much for the quick reply...anyway, my next questions would be,

1) how much money do u think we should bring for the said itinerary (hotel and disney and ocean park tix are already taken cared of);

2) what kind of octopus card shud we purchase? will we purchase one card per head and unlimited card (i'm not so sure if i'm using the right term)

3) how many can be accommodated in a taxi (my kids are of ages 6 yo below and

4) are there discounted rates for kids in the mtrs and buses?

Thanks much again for the big help...

Queries. :)
by: Casey

Hello! Are the hotel taxes multiplied by the days of stay in the hotel or the tax is already for the whole stay?

And is it advisible to buy disneyland tickets online? or can we find discounted disneyland tickets when we arrive in hk? or do you know any sites that sells discounted tickets? thanks! :)

To get to Shenzhen, get into the nearest Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station. Take the Tsuen Wan Line going to Tsuen Wan and interchange trains at Prince Edward station. Take the Kwun Tong Line going to Tiu Keng Leng and interchange trains at Kowloon Tong station. Take the East Rail Line going to Lo Wu and get off to that last station (54 minutes at HK$34.8).

suggested itinerary
by: shivanee

Hi,

I will be arriving in HK on February 2 9PM and will depart on February 5 10:40AM. Now as you can see we have a very limited time there so is there any suggestion for a short trip there?

i am planning to go to Ngong Ping on friday morning, then spend the whole afternoon till night in Disneyland then proceed to Ladies Market till midnight.

on Saturday, im planning to visit the clock tower and musuem in east TST from 9am - 11AM. Do you think this is a good place to spend 2 hours of my day here? then im planning to visit Citygate from lunch till 3pm. then head to granville and cameron in the afternoon. then temple st. by night....

is there any good suggestion so i can make most of my time here?

Thank you!

Re: Ocean Park
by: HKinsider stellar

Hello Casey :)

Yes, the itinerary i suggested is very doable. Just manage your time so that you won't be rushing too much and you may still catch the 8pm Symphony of Lights. Actually, these are just 3 places right after Ocean Park: Victoria Peak (via Peak Tram and Madame Tussauds is in the Peak)--> Victoria Harbour (via Star Ferry and Avenue of Stars is along the promenade where you can also watch the Symphony of Lights)--> Mong Kok (Ladies' Market)

Also, get to Ngong Ping early in the morning to start your Disneyland tour at noon.

Ocean Park
by: Casey (Philippines)

So if we leave the Ocean park late in the afternoon we'll still be able to visit all these other attractions? (Peak Tram--> Victoria Peak (pop into Madame Tussauds located at the Peak)--> Star Ferry--> Avenue of Stars--> Symphony of Lights at 8pm--> Ladies' Night Market) Hihi. :)

Thank You again, and again. :)

Re: Giant Buddha
by: HKinsider stellar

Hello Casey :)

Most of the major attractions in Hong Kong have luggage lockers for rent. You may also leave your luggage in storage lockers in some malls. Just bring along with you your valuables.

Re: HK trip
by: HKinsider stellar

Hello Casey :)

Yes, you may get back to Hong Kong on that same day in the evening since most of the attractions in Macau can be covered in one day. The last trip of the ferry would be at 10:30pm.

It's safe to be at the airport atleast 2 hours before your flight to avoid the rush.

Ocean Park, like Disneyland, requires a full day activity but you may leave late in the afternoon.

Giant Buddha
by: Casey (Philippines)

Oh. I just read that the giant buddha is at ngong ping. Haha. Don't mind my previous question about that. My bad. Lol. :))

I have another question in mind. :)) Is there any baggage counter where we can put our luggages temporarily while waiting for the check in for the hotels? For us to travel without our luggages. Is it safe?

Sorry if i have a lot of questions. Hihi. :) Thank you very much. :)

HK trip
by: Casey (Philippines)

Hello. It's me again. :) If we'll go to Macau in the morning. Is it possible for us to go back in Hongkong that evening or before the sun sets?

And will it still be possible to visit the giant Buddha and other lantau attractions before going to the airport on the 29th?

How many hours will it take to tour around Ocean Park and enjoy the rides? :)

Thank You Again! You are very much of a great help!

Hello. :) My family will be having a trip to hongkong from April 26-29 2012. We'll arrive hk at 7:40 am and leave on the 29th at 10:40 am.

For our 1st day, we plan to tour the popular attractions in hk including Ocean park, Ngong Ping, Avenue of Stars @ Victoria Harbour, Symphony of Lights, Star Ferry, Peak Tram, Victoria Peak, giant Buddha and other lantau attractions, Madame Tussauds, Times Square, and other museums and shopping centers.

Question: Is it doable in one day? And what hotel can you suggest?

For our second day, we plan to go to macau. But i have no idea what places to visit. Can you suggest any?

For our third day we plan to visit HongKong disneyland the whole day until the next day for our flight return to manila.

Question: Is it possible for us to visit all the attractions in disneyland for 1 day?

Hoping for your reply to help me arrange a memorable experience for me and my family. Thank you! :)

* Nov 25: Macau to Shenzhen, actually you can take the Ferry from Macau Ferry Terminal to Shekou Shenzhen (90 mins @ MOP210 - economy class), also you'll need to prepare your China visa upon arrival at Shekou as you'll enter the mainland China --> and then take the Metro train Shekou Line from Shekou Port "Shekou Gang" station to Window of the World station (25 mins @ RMB5) --> explore Window of the World --> take the Loubao Line train from Window of the World station and get off at Luo Hu station (31 mins @ RMB5) --> proceed to the popular Lo Wu Commercial Building for bargain shopping.

Getting back to TST, HK. Walk to the nearby Lo Wu / HK immigration building for passport checking --> upon exit at HK immigration, you get into the Lo Wu MTR station --> take the East Rail Line train and get off at Kowloon Tong station --> interchange trains to the Kwun Tong Line and get off at Mong Kok station --> interchange trains to the Tsuen Wan Line and get off at Tsim Sha Tsui station (54 mins @ HK$34.8)

It is strongly recommended to get your China VISA before your trip (in Philippines) to avoid any hassle and waiting if processed in HK.

* Nov 26: Maybe a visit of 1 or 2 HK Museum and a final shopping at well-known shopping malls around TST area before going to HK airport for departure.

@ Minyang,

It is a great place to stay (in TST area) during your Hong Kong stay.

If you just travel light, you start right away your HK tour from HK airport like following this itinerary;

* Nov 22: HK-airport (1:00pm) ==> Ngong Ping 360 (until 5:00pm) ==> Citygate Outlets (until 7:30) ==> hotel at TST.

Take a taxi (10 mins @ HK$40) to Tung Chung NP 360 cable car Terminal --> take the cable care to Ngong Ping (25 mins @ HK$115 - round trip ticket) --> Explore Ngong Ping and the rest of Lantau island attractions --> take the cable car back to Tung Chung --> walk to the nearby Citygate Outlets for shopping and dining.

From Citygate Outlet at Tung Chung --> get into the Tung Chung MTR station --> take the Tung Chung Line train and get off at Lai King station --> interchange trains to the Tsuen Wan Line and get off at Tsim Sha Tsui station (38 mins @ HK$14.1).

* Nov 23: Ocean Park (morning until 4:00pm) ==> The Peak (until 7:00pm) ==> TST promenade to visit the Avenue of Stars and watch the Symphony of Lights show that starts at 8:00pm.

Get into the TST MTR station and then take the Tsuen Wan Line train and get off at Admiralty station Exit B. Upon exit, follow the rest of the instruction that you can read in here.

* Nov 24: HK Disneyland (morning until 4:00pm) ==> Macau (for 1 night).

To Disneyland from TST, get into the TST MTR station and then take the Tsuen Wan Line train and get off at Lai King station --> interchange trains to the Tung Chung Line and get off at Sunny Bay station --> interchange trains to the Disneyland Resort Line to Disneyland station Exit A (38 mins @ HK$17).

From Disneyland to Macau, get into the Disneyland MTR station and take the train to Sunny Bay station --> interchange to the Tung Chung Line and get off at Hong Kong station --> walk to the adjacent Central station --> take the Island Line train and get off at Sheung Wan station Exit D to get into the Hong Kong Macau Ferry Terminal --> take the ferry to Macau (55 mins @ HK$151).

HK-MACAU 5 DAY TRIP FOR COUPLE
by: Minyang (Philippines)

Please suggest an itinerary for us. Our trip is on Nov 22, 2011, we will arrive HK at 1:10 p.m. and we will depart HK on Nov. 26, 2011, 5:45 pm.

We are planning to stay in a hostel in TST area. And, we plan to stay for 2 days 1 night in Macau.

We would like to go in Shenzhen too. Is it advisable if we apply for a Visa in the Philippines or in HK instead?

Thanks in advance.

Hong Kong and Macau cost of living and transportation standard are quite identical.

Your Hongkong Guest House budget would be about HK$300 per night.

To give you an overview of the Hong Kong attractions that you've mentioned, please follow the following links to read information such as location, price and how to get there;

* Ngong Ping 360: I suggest you take the cable car from Tung Chung. Get a return ticket is ideal. Bus is quite slow and taking a taxi will also takes much time than cable and much more expensive.

* Hong Kong Disneyland. Please refer also to this topic discussion, Budget for HK Disneyland travel.

* Peak Tram and Sky Pass, all in your Victoria Peak visit. I recommend you purchase the Peak Tram Sky Pass (The Peak Tram & Sky Terrace) return ticket for HK$65, you'll save HK$5 as the ticket price are HK$40 (peak tram round trip ticket) and HK$30 (sky terrace).

* Macau visit. Please also read this topic discussion, HONGKONG-MACAU TRIP (first timers) ITINERARY for more information to your budget planning.

Also, upon arrival at HKIA, go to the Airport Express counter that can be found at the arrival hall and then buy an Octopus Card. Using the card when touring around HK will give you some discount on fares and save much of your time, highly recommended. It is very easy-to-use, it is an electronic smart card which automatically deducts fares for most major local transportation such as MTR trains, bus, and even some stores like 7-Eleven.

Before departing HK, return your octopus card at the same counter and obtain a refund and the remaining balance of the card minus a handling fee of HK$7.

Normally, an HK$100 per day budget for your transportation in Hongkong should be fine.

I hope the info given above can give an idea of how much money you need for your HK visit
