There are a lot shopping malls, eg. Harbour City, The One, Silvercord, IFC mall, Pacific Place, Time Square, Hysan Place........etc

 

Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade = Avenue of Stars, yes Symphony of Lights starts at 8pm every night

 

Yes Disneyland firework is every day. Time table can refer to disneyland website because its different every season.

 

Go to Macau can take ferry from Tsim Sha Tsui china hong kong ferry terminal. About House of Dancing Water, you need to buy ticket in advance, some peak dates can be fully book so you have to check their website. 

 

Ocean park is not going from central, but admiralty. Take MTR to admiralty and take bus 629 to ocean park

 

Weather is cold in Jan-Feb, can lower than 10c sometimes. Better check weather forecast

 

Stanley and repulse bay need about half day or more, so you can go on the day with no special plan.

May I know how should I get to Peak Tram station at central from Mongkok?

 

I stay at Royal Plaza Hotel and Sing Yuet Hostel. I booked from agoda.com and the maps shows both of them located near to Mongkok East MTR Station. Are these both hotels near to Mongkok and Jordon MTR Station? 

Can I walk from Mongkok to Mongkok East?

 

 

Sorry for asking too many questions.

Do u guys know where JCL Jewellery City which located at 土瓜湾? May I know how should I go there from Mongkok by MTR?

 

Thank you in advanced :)

Royal Plaza Hotel is just next to Mongkok East station but I guess Sing Yuet Hostel is not as close because the station is kind of uphill and there is only a shopping mall, hotel and government building there. Sing Yuet Hostel should be closer to Mongkok station, but not Jordan station. 

 

Yes, you can walk between Mongkok and Mongkok East station, about 10-15mins between two stations.

 

From Mongkok, take MTR Tsuen Wan Line to Central station, then you can follow the walking direction shown on http://www.thepeak.com.hkto walk to Peak Tram station.

 

Why would you like to go to JCL Jewellery City? Normally locals won't shop jewellery there... If you wanna buy jewellery, suggest you to buy from Chow Sang Sang, Chow Tai Fook, Luk Fook...etc. all these are major jewellery chain in HK and have lots of branches everywhere in the city. Just FYI, price of precious metal (e.g. 999 gold, platinum etc) in HK is fixed, so if gold jewellery is what you're looking for, you may only compare the design across shops because the price should be more or less the same. The difference is only the price of craftsmanship, which won't be a very big variance.
