A few friends and I (all young professionals) will be in HK for NYE 2013/14 and will be hiring a boat on the habour for the evening - figure this would be a great way to watch the fireworks, bring in the new year & avoid the crowds :))
We have space for several more people/group and are looking for anyone who would be keen to join us (and to share the boat-hire cost).
Happy to hear from anyone interested, please send me an email to: holdthatelevator@gmail . com if you're interested.
Talk soon :)
Does anybody knows if it is possible to travel with the Macau Turbo Jet from Honkong airport (Lantau) one day after arrival in Hong Kong? Or is this service only for passengers in transit to Macau, presenting a valid ferry ticket with the same day departure?
Are they elderly people-friendly?
Can anyone help me with this?
I will be staying in Regal Oriental Hotel when I visit Hong Kong in December and I need to check-in at 6am and check-out at 5am, but the hotel's check-in and check-out timings are 2pm and 12pm respectively. However, it did state on its website that there's express check-in and check-out counters. Does anyone know how it works and what I have to do? Also, are there any additional charges? Thank you so much for your help!!

Hi, all! Im traveling to Hong Kong for the first time and i'm beyond excited! I have 5 nights total and been told that after all the sightseeing, THIS is the place to go shopping and eating! However I don't want to shop for cute little Knick Knacks, which is what the ladies market seems to be? Im a tech head and love clothes(more casual chic than dressy.) There's so many places to each I have no idea where to go(I love beef and pastry) I heard the Chocolate tea room at the Ritz is amazing so Ill try that once. I've heard about going to Shen Zen or Macau for shopping at tech things but this is just my searching on the internet. So I'd rather get some help from my VT buddies! Any suggestions?

1. I arrived HK on 05 Nov 13 at 2pm, is it wiser to go straight to Lantau Island spend a night return to HK the next day Or after arrived HK check in Hotel first then go the next day for a solid full day?
2. To go to the Peak and Madame Tussauds, do I need a day?
3. and of course i want to shopping.....
I know the rules around HK and China change everyday, but..
I'm a 3 star HKID holder, but I don't hold the passport. I am a British passport holder though I suspect this makes no difference to my plight or may even hinder it.
I want to know whether I can apply for a home return permit for China, so that I can get in and out without the need for a visa.
Any ideas are massively welcome..! Thanks in advance.
We are travelling from Norway to Fiji in October.
The route is from Norway to Hong Kong via Amsterdam with KLM. Then it's from Hong Kong to Fiji with Cathay (operated by Fiji Airways).
Is it most likely that we have to pick up our luggage in Hong Kong and go through the whole security and check in system?
Or is it possible that we are able to check in the luggage the whole way from Norway to Fiji even though we are travelling on two different tickets with two different airlines?
We have 2h 15 min between flights in Hong Kong.
Anyone with experience from this?
