      Cotai water jet - Macau Ferry Terminal

      Hong Kong Island 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.

      Hi guys,

      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!!

      Cheers ^^

    • Hong Kong on May 2012

      by thinkingrich331 Online Now Mar 20, 2012 at 3:11 AM

      My Family and I are scheduled to go to Macau-HK this coming May. We arrive at Macau Airport, stay overnight in Macau, then stay in HK for 4 nights and on our last day, go back again to Macau for our flight back home. I wonder where it will be best to book a hotel, considering the following planned itinerary:

      1st Night - Macau
      1st Day - A.M. Macau
      P.M. Nathan Road/Kowloon Side
      2nd Day- Causeway Bay/Victoria Peak
      3rd Day-Disneyland
      4th Day-Ocean Park
      5th Day-A.M. Shop for souvenir and give aways
      P.M. Back to Macau for flight

      I wonder if I can really do this, come from Macau, stay in HK for 4 nights, then back to Macau for my flight back home. Where is the best place to stay, Kowloon side or HK side. On my 2nd day, what is the best thing to do or where is the best place to go? Would I be right to think that it will be cheaper for us, in terms of transportation costs, to stay in HongKong side, Lantau or wanchai area since most of the places I wish to see are in those area and not in Kowloon side?

      I plan to see night markets, tourists spots and shopping places in HK.

      Thanks much!

      silly billy - how do i get from plane to pub ??

      by peterseaford Online Now Jul 23, 2011 at 9:19 PM

      asked everything EXCEPT How Do I Get To Nathan Hotel 378 Nathan Road Kowloon from the Hong Kong Airport at 6am in the morning of 5 August and how do i get back to the airport at 5pm on 7th August.

      Not penney pincher but would love to see as much as we can of bothe people and places.

      Suppose taxi is always available but it may not be what you suggest and we would really value your suggestions.

      was told that there was a bus but we have luggage and would not loke to carry that far - have a wife as well.

      Seems that Nathan Hotel as no bus service but suggest Kowloon Station and I cannot find that.

      Can find Jordan but that looks a good 10 minute walk from the hotel even without luggage.

      please let us have what you have discovered as best.

      kindest regards

      want to enjoy all of Kowloon.

      by peterseaford Online Now Jul 12, 2011 at 3:54 AM

      only two days for a start then seven days and we want to enjoy all of Kowloon , Hong Kong , Shenzhen and Macow,

      We are staying at the Nathan and have already meet a fabulous travel agent Edith and feel we are in good hands.

      I would like to go to Mass at the Rosary Church and supose that on Friday night a cab is the way to fly.

      Was told that the Rickshaw Bus tour is well worth it as is te Red bus tour by day and night.

      I really need to replace a blazer that i have lost - just unlined but part of me and i was just hoping that there may be a place in Kowloon near the Nathan that may be worth a try.

      the wife and I are aged pensioners but really like to enjoy ourselves . I have toured China and loved everything about her and hope that I will do the same next year.

      Any advise you can offer would really be valued

      kind regards

      Guide needed

      Hello everyone

      We are heading over to HK from Oct 4th to the 15th and would be very interested in finding a guide. We are not into organised tourist travel, we like to get out and about and find out about the place we are staying and see villages and meet the real people.

      We don't travel many miles to shop,shop,shop although we do a little shopping to take home. We did try this in KL but ended up with someone who treated us like a business deal. We are easy to get along with and don't mind paying for a good guide. We take care of anyone who takes care of us equally.

      If you know of anyone who would be interested we would really appreciate it.

    • The Royal Plaza Hotel Kowloon

      by chantalleptos Online Now May 6, 2010 at 12:55 AM

      I am seeking some advice regarding accommodation; my partner and I are travelling to Hong Kong from Australia in November for leisure/ sightseeing and shopping.
      I have been trying to work out where we are going to stay however I am having some difficulty with the different areas/which is better, etc.
      So far I have gathered that we want to stay in Kowloon (Mongkok or Tsim Sha Tsui).
      I'd like to know if anyone has stayed at The Royal Plaza and whether they can comment on the location/property. I have chosen this property as I have been able to find a fantastic Internet price.
      I am also open to recommendations and advice!

      or 2) take A21 to Mongkok MTR stn, then walk 10mins
      but I don't want to drag my luggages together with 3 children and I'm thinking better if I stop at any A21 statn that has convenient taxi stand next to it.

      My flight will reach HK at about 230pm so taxi readily available this time I suppose?
