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.
