      Cotai water jet - Macau Ferry Terminal

      by Martinewezel Online Now Mar 29, 2014 at 3:23 AM

      Can I buy a round trip ticket to Macau at the Cotai Water Jet counter in Hong Kong?
      I searched the internet and the info is not clear to me. Some websites mention that it's only possible to buy a one way ticket (because of the difference of currency with Macau).
      I know that booking a round trip is possible online.

      New cruise terminal to Hong Kong International airport

      by pepemorris11 Online Now Mar 6, 2014 at 7:22 PM

      Hi there to all VTers!
      Arriving by Celebrity Millenium to the new cruise terminal at Kai Tak. Want to get to the International airport by public transport. Need to get to the airport by at least 11am. Not laden with loads of bags. I only have a 24" luggage so I think public transport would be ok . Has anyone done this before?
      Or any Hong Kongers who have visited the new terminal by public transport, is there a way to an MTR station without having to take a taxi?
      I don't speak Cantonese at all. Help! thanks in anticipation

      Shopping in Hong Kong

      by rimbaldi Online Now Oct 24, 2013 at 11:36 PM

      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?

      China Home return permit for HK ID (not passport) holder?

      by ktlaw1 Online Now Sep 30, 2013 at 4:31 AM

      Hey guys

      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.

      Any recommendations for a "about" $100 US Dollars hotel in the above areas? Single traveler. I don't need luxury or much room, but would love to have free WI-FI, airport shuttle, but not absolutely necessary. Arrive October 26, for four nights. Also if any locals interested in having dinner one night would be so cool. I live in Los Angeles, will be visiting Singapore and Thailand before HK (first time) visit.

      How to do all this in 1 night

      by SandiM Online Now Jul 24, 2013 at 1:33 PM

      We are spending the day on Lantau Island and then taking a ferry from there to Hong Kong Island. From the pier, we want to go up the Central Mid-levels escalator and then somehow get to the tram to go up Victoria Peak and take photos. After that, taking the tram down again, we want to hop on a bus to have a tour through the brightest parts of the Island on our way back to the Star Ferry Pier to get back to our hotel in Kowloon. For 2 older ladies, how can we do all this? We need a good map that pinpoints the escalator too. Our biggest problem is figuring out where the escalator ends and where we can access the tram to the peak, but we need bus #'s for the 'scenic' route back to the pier too.
