Hong Kong 2014 - Day 1

I went to Hong Kong in April with my friend and cousins.  It was free and easy trip.  It is my longest oversea trip.  I was in HK for 7 days and 3 days in Macau.

We stayed at Pok Man Street around Mongkok.  Before we fly off to HK we went to a travel agency at 1U to purchase our ticket to Disney, Victoria Peak and Ocean Park.  We got a very good deal on the entrance fee.  If you guys are planning to go HK you may check the Travel Agency @ 1 U where the Skybus station is.  The staff there is very helpful.  He has help us a lot despite we went in to buy the tour very last minute. He ask us to purchase the Octopus Card for tourist where there is express train from airport and 3 days unlimited usage.  You can choose either 1 way from airport or 2 way to and from airport.  If i do not remember wrongly 1 way from airport + 3 days unlimited ride is about HKD220 and 2 way + 3 days umlimited ride is about HKD300.  Although it say 3 days, we are able to stretch it up to 4 days. In the Octopus card there is a voucher for us to purchase mobile card.  The sim card is for 8days access to 5gb data + HKD35 airtime to call out + unlimited wifi connection. When ever you see the sign PCCW Wifi, login to the wifi service to access the net if the 5gb is not enough for u to use.  With the voucher we paid HKD98 for it.

The apartment that we stayed in is very strategy and value for money.  Although from outside it looks a bit run down but the apartment was ok.

First day is just normal sigh seeing and window shop at City Gate.  I wish I have lotsa money to shop at City Gate. City Gate house a lot of branded factory outlet.  Did not get to take picture at City Gate cause I was too busy window shopping around.

Hi Jacq,
I've never been to Hong Kong but I think they can speak English right?

Looking forward to your food discovery there.

p/s I heard that they talk quite loud and impolite too. Is that true?

Yeah they speak English. More like HKlish... LoL! Like our Manglish. Some of them quite rude... but some they are ok... a few tat I met, as soon as they know I am malaysian they become very friendly. :)
