Air ticket was another RM700 for me but JH paid for the hotel which was right in Tsim Sha Tsui so that was great. The rooms were clean, a little musty smelling but no complains! The transportation system was fantastic. It was the thing I loved best about HK. Not the cheapest but it was worth it. The buses and the MTRs - super convenient. It also helps that JH really did his homework before the trip and we knew exactly where to go, how to get there and which bus or MTR to take despite never being there.
I must admit that thru out the entire HK trip, me and JH were lucky. We had fantastic luck with transportation and we avoided two major mishaps that could have cost us a LOT of money.
Once, on our way to catch a boat to Macau, I remembered our passports. We ran all the way back. I thank God that we remembered before buying the ticket and spending an hour on the speedboat to Macau only to get kicked back at the Immigrations. I didn't have a single identification on me. No ID, No driver license, nil.
2nd, was when we bought our tickets back to HK and the display stated that it was a 8:00PM ride. The tickets we bought was for 7.30PM. We had less than 3 minutes to get on board and I didn't realize. JH saw the time and asked me to run. I ran. I didn't ask why but I just ran and we made it just on time.
We headed to The Peak later that night and according to the guide book we were to take Bus 15 that will take us to the tram station. Or we could walk, its just 10 minutes away. We boarded the bus and paid HK$9.80 each. I complained about the price since it was for less than 5 minute bus ride. 5 minutes turned 20 minutes then turned half an hour. We were halfway up the mountain when we realize we boarded a bus that takes us directly to the Peak. Lucky!
Some fancy place we saw while walking to the Ferry. It looks fantastic at night! Like some fairytale mansion
Like every tourist do, we headed up to the roof of one of the malls to catch a glimpse of HK at night. It was HK$25 and not very worth it. When the wind blew, it was 0 Celcius and my teeth sent out SOS in moorse codes.
Then again, it was VERY pretty but we spent less than 10 minutes up there. We ate at a nearby restaurant while watching the horrendous queue of people waiting for the tram. It was about over 100 people queuing in the bloody cold! We wondered if they knew about the bus service. Again, we took the bus down and there was probably less than 6 people on board. Took us directly to the Ferry service and we walked a few minutes to the hotel.
To come, MACAU!
