Hi ClouDx,

Day 2 and 3 you may want to consider switching Lan kwai fong with the Ladies market.

After Ocean Park go to Lan kwai fong is nearer.

And because you checking out on Day 4 so the night walk at Ladies Market and Mong Kok area is better as it is nearer to your motel so you don't have to rush back for late packing. (you can also walk back to motel)

I am very concern on your day 3 because the Big Buddha and the Peak is quite far a way so you wasted a lot of time on traveling.

For me i will give up the big buddha :P At morning breakfast around your motel then go to SheunWan-Central-Wan Chai-Causeway Bay then head to The Peak.

Try to arrange your location around the same area so you save more time on traveling.

For example:

HongKong Island as 1 area (The peak, Ocean Park, Lan kwai Foong, Central & Causeway Bay),

Kwoloon 1 area (Mongkok, Tsim Sha Tsui, Yau Ma Tei, Avenue of star)

Wong Tai Sin and Big Buddha is a bit far so consider on the traveling time)

Happy traveling

Hi James,

Thanks for your reply! Noted on the location. I'll revise the plan accordingly. The big buddha estimate how long travelling from Tsim Sha Tsui area? Based on google maps i need around 1hr++ to go there. Wong Tai Sin is accessible via MTR right?

How bout foods? I planned to go to Tim Ho Wan for dim sum breakfast since it's very near my hotel.

Hi ClouDx, you're right, you will need more than an hour to reach Big Buddha, as it takes around 30-45mins by MTR from East Tsim Sha Tsui station to Tung Chung on Tung Chung line, then another 25mins (haven't included the queuing time for ticket & cable car) on the cable car from Tung Chung to Big Buddha on Ngong Ping.

Yes Wong Tai Sin is accessible by MTR.

For food, you can take a look at the Gourmet part in our website, and also our food blog here. Remember to arrive Tim Ho Wan a bit earlier than its opening time in order to save time on queuing up~ It roughly opens at 10am but I heard people started queuing at 9am, not sure if the situation has improved now since they have opened up more branches now.

Northasian, other than the big buddha, what other activities that can be done? Me and my wife are not planning to go to Disneyland during this trip, perhaps another trip.

Another question is, is there any SIM Pack for tourist?

Except Big Buddha, there is a Ngong Ping Village that you an walk around, can have the Chinese vegetarian lunch at Po Lin Monastery, walk along the Wisdom Path near the Big Buddha, have a good bowl of silky smooth Tofu Fa that you can't have anywhere else...etc. After finished Big Buddha and surroundings, you can consider to have a shopping spree at Citygate Outlet Mall in Tung Chung or a short trip to the Tai O Fishing Village where you can buy local made some dried seafood or maybe take a boat trip to watch Chinese Pink Dolphine if you're lucky enough. Basically, Lantau Island could spend you a whole day there if you wish~
