    Hi,
    I've been there together with my mom and sister last year and it was one of the best trip I had. The place was really great although there are only a few people there that knows how to speak English. We took an accommodation and tour package because we really don't want to get lost in the place.
    The tour package already took care of everything for us and took us to the best places in Hongkong. The ShenZhen, Ocean Park, Disneyland, accommodation, daily breakfast was entrance fee was already included in the package.
    Regarding the money matter, you should buy Hongkong Dollars before getting there since it's cheaper that way. I'm sure you'll enjoy your Trip! :)

    You can search and book hotels thru:

    Hong Kong: www.agoda.com or www.asiarooms.com

    YMCA Hong Kong might be good: http://www.ymcahk.org.hk/main_e.html; nearby star ferry terminal, MTR , shopping at Nantan Road. Great location.

    Shenzhen: www.elong.net (usually don't need to pay in advance).

    You can take the MTR to Disneyland, it is very easy just like Singapore.

    You can buy discount ticket to Disneyland in Shenzhen, some travel agencies along shops in Laohu on the way to Hong Kong immigration.

    Have a great trips!

    Prepare that you have to premium prices for a hotel room during your planned travel time in March due to the fact that we have the Hong Kong Sevens here (rugby finals). Rooms will be booked out vvv quickly.

    Hong Kong Disneyland: Standard ticket price for an adult is HK$ 399 and for kids (3-11) HK$ 285. Depending where you stay in HK best bet will be to take the MTR to Disney.

    Regarding your questions about shopping, ladies market, how to get there, etc I will refer you to one of the best resources about HK on the internet: www.nextstophongkong.com

    Hotel option in Shenzhen

    by view.finder Online Now Mar 2, 2013 at 7:45 PM

    Hi,

    My girlfriend and I stayed at the Garden Inn in Shenzhen this time last year (Dongmen Central Road branch), whilst commuting to Hong Kong daily. It saves a lot of money in accommodation if you have appointments the other side of the border and with a mulit-day travel card for the Hong Kong MTR is much like commuting through any other large city. Certainly for the Shenzhen part of your stay, I can recommend the Garden Inn as cheap, clean and comfortable. It is a bus ride from the Luohu border crossing (about 10 minutes). The area, known as Dongmen, is populated with many restuarants, shopping facilities and wholesale markets

    Safe travels,

    John.
