    • Photography Guide

      Hong Kong Aug 26, 2015 at 2:42 AM


      I’m stopping off in Hong Kong for a couple of days on my way to Vietnam and I’d love to capture some of my HK experience on film (well SD card). However I’m new to photography and would love to have a guide who could help me get the most out of my camera. It would also be great to get some local advice on where to go 

      Having a look online a lot of the photography tours are quiet expensive for half a day (HK$2000/£170), so I was wondering if anyone knew of any cheaper alternatives.

      We have a 10 hour lay-over between flights when we return from Australia next year. We propose booking into a lounge for the duration, however there seems to be several. Our flight to the UK is with Cathay Pacific going to Manchester. Which lounge should we book?

    • How far to Sha Tin

      by sfda Online Now Jan 5, 2007 at 11:28 PM


      Could someone help me to identify how far the Horizon suite actaully is from Sha Tin KCR. I am looking to stay for 3 weeks but have friends in Tai Po/Fanling, therefore will probably be further in the NT some nights.

      1/ Will it be difficult to get on the KCR and then change to Taxi, and how much will the taxi be?

      2/ I know there is the Ma On Shan rail system which change at Tai Wai. Does anyone know how far is the Ma On Shan station from the Horizon hotel? How much is the train each way roughly?

      3/ Are there any supermarkets neat the hotel

      4/ Does anyone know which are the best floors as we don't want to stay in empty floors.

      Thank you your help

    • comfort and joy at Horizon Suite Hotel

      by fillyphanatic Online Now Jul 23, 2006 at 3:48 PM

      I've read the questions and answers regarding Horizon Suite Hotel with interest and found most of it encouraging. We're planning a lengthy stay come January and were wondering why the units get so cold (beyond the draft)? Do they have no heaters attached to air conditioning units in the rooms? Also, if the beds are that hard, is there a shop nearby that sells those foam bed cushions? And while I'm at it, are bed and bath linens provided, how well equipped are the kitchens,how varied is the cuisine at the local market, and, since we'll be bringing an infant, how "kid-friendly" is the area? See you in the new year.

    • Horizon Suite Hotel

      by Sue88uk Online Now Jan 18, 2006 at 2:59 AM

      Hi everyone, just like to say hello and would appreciate any help with my questions.
      My family and I are going to Hong Kong in July for a month, two adults and two kids, and are looking for a place to stay, the problem is with having the four of us and we would like to stay in one room as opposed to two separate rooms. Someone told me about Horizon Suite Hotels, has anyone stayed there and is it convenient? Which floor/rooms are the best regarding lower noise levels, convenience to amenities etc. What rates have your paid? Would appreciate any response. Thanks in advance.

    • Wondering about Horizon Suite also...

      by RDCHK Online Now May 5, 2005 at 9:34 AM

      I very fortunately came acroos thie forum just as I am thinking of the HSH as a place to stay also.
      If anyone can help...
      ktk789; You've been really helpful. Now that you've been there another few weeks, what do you think?

      I am concerned a bit about it being so far out from HK/Kowloon not only for the commute but for language reasons also. No Cantonese here-yet. Any problems?

      What floor r u on?
      How much more for a harbor view?
      Planning on your entire year there?

      Thanks for any help.
      And, this may be the start of yet another flurry of questions-hope u r up for it!

      What to do in Sha Tin?

      by Tim88 Online Now Sep 13, 2004 at 6:51 AM

      I often travel by rail between Fan Ling and Tsen Wan. What is there to see if I wish to ramble around there? Anything cultural, beautiful, or any places with good bargains? Any great parks or sports clubs? And naturally, any places where a foreigner might meet up with some local ladies??? Thank!
