I heard that Macau's things are getting more expensive now, souvenir like Kui Kee, I've ever heard the price in their Hong Kong's branch is even cheaper than the branches in Macau!!! As I can't prove this without comparing by myself, you better check the price out in the Kui Kee branch in Mongkok first on your Day1, then only decide buy or not in their branches in Macau.

Sorry for my messy itinerary. :P Would like to know:-

No it's not messy at all and indeed quite well-planned and easy to read too~ It's a pleasure reading and replying it~ :)

1. Pok Fu Lam is at Central? Nearest is Central MTR station?

No Pok Fu Lam is not in Central but I believe the nearest MTR station is Central or Sheung Wan. You have to take minibus to reach the MTR stations.

2. Should I purchase ferry return ticket to Macau via online before depart to HK?

Strongly recommended. It is to get the perfect timing you prefer and avoid any disappointment. FYI, you can buy the ferry ticket at a later timing and just in case you want to leave Macau earlier, you can standby an earlier ferry. This is what I use to do for maximum flexibility. (i.e. Ferry ticket is valid for all ferry timing before the timing shown on tickets.

3. Where to slot in the Star Ferry ride and Wong Tai Sin Temple to my itinerary?

Hm... on Day 3 la... Wake up earlier and go to Wong Tai Sin Temple before going to Central, then take MTR to Tsim Sha Tsui, walk to the Star Ferry Pier and take the ferry to Central...

About level of convenience of Pok Fu Lam, of coz it's not as convenient as places with MTR stations... It's a residential area and connection to the city mainly rely on bus & minibus. As I am not living there, you better check with your friend for the best transportation to the nearest MTR station...

Thanks in advance. :D

Hi Northasian, great to receive your reply. Thanks thanks :)

Day 1: Kowloon

Ok noted with thanks. :D Just in case cannot shop so many places on Day 1, planning to shop again after Day 4 Disneyland or after Day 5 visits to Repulse Bay/Stanley/Causeway Bay. Is it possible?

Haha.. I listed down all the recommended food so that will have more choices of what to eat.. Lol.. Kinda worry whether we able to find those food shop provided with the address.. :P Any advise on this beside asking people around and referring to the map?

Day 2: Macau

Hehe noted. Will book the ferry tickets in advance. Are these shows in City of Dream worth to watch? Just want to confirm, can we hop into any shuttle bus to travel around Macau? Keke..

Day 3: Hong Kong Island

Noted with thanks, but not sure by the time we reach HK and purchase the Disneyland ticket still have the umbrealla or not.. Keke.. :P

Day 5:

Yaya, will decide this when time comes.. :)

I've check this with my friend. As your said, nearest MTR station is Sheung Wan. Hmm, have to leave the house abit earlier in order to take bus/minibus to the MTR station then..

Ohya, where to slot in the most significant transport - Ding Ding tram to my itinerary. Hehe.. I have check below link, the route starts at SheungWan and ends at ShauKeiWan.

I think it's put it on Day 5 'coz it would be too late after the Disneyland on Day 4...

Haha.. I listed down all the recommended food so that will have more choices of what to eat.. Lol.. Kinda worry whether we able to find those food shop provided with the address.. :P Any advise on this beside asking people around and referring to the map?

You can make good use of google map, especially the "photo" function (drag the little yellow man on the street to have the real street view), and then pin the location and print it out. I use this method everytime when I travel to places that I've never been and it's very effective!

Day 2: Macau

Hehe noted. Will book the ferry tickets in advance. Are these shows in City of Dream worth to watch? Just want to confirm, can we hop into any shuttle bus to travel around Macau? Keke..

I haven't watched the show before, but heard it's very nice and worth to watch. Yes, most hotel free shuttle buses are free to hop on, but they mainly take you to/from the ferry piers so sometimes it could be time consuming... except those under the same group, e.g. Venetian <-> Sands <-> City of Dream.

Day 3: Hong Kong Island

Noted with thanks, but not sure by the time we reach HK and purchase the Disneyland ticket still have the umbrealla or not.. Keke.. :P

You don't know without trying, right? ;)

Day 5:

Yaya, will decide this when time comes.. :)

You can try it on Day 3 or Day 5~

Hi cranberry, how have you been? :)

The Disneyland 1-Day Ticket is good for the whole day entertainment in the park, you don't need to buy an extra night ticket for staying till 11pm. The night ticket is for those who want to enter after 6pm. However, refer the official website here : http://park.hongkongdisneyland.com/hkdl/html/Halloween/en_US/index.html , you will need a date-stamped ticket for entry on 28/10, so you can only buy the ticket at the park on that day.

For the Macau ferry ticket, yes you can purchase it earlier.

If you will enter the park in the morning, I think it won't be too long queue 'coz people still need to work on that Friday morning~

Hey I think I mis-read something... If you enter the park by the full-day ticket, you can buy online and there is NOT necessary to get a date-stamped ticket even you will stay till night on 28/10. Date-stamped ticket is for the night entry only, 'coz I've tried the "buy online" functions for both kind of ticket, only the pop-up of night ticket has a reminder about it and there is an option of buying date-stamped ticket but there is none of above reminder & options in the pop-up of full-day ticket. You can try it yourself~

Yaya agreed, if so then will buy the Disneyland ticket when arrive at HK.. Haha.. Btw any travel agent is selling those admission tickets with cheaper price?

Btw, I tried to buy online for the Cotaijet ferry to Macau, there is 2 destinations when departing from HK Macau Ferry Terminal (Sheung Wan) to Macau - Mo Taipa Ferry Terminal and Macau Outer Harbour Ferry Terminal. Which destination I should choose?

Thanks. :)

It depends on which part of Macau you wanna visit first. For Venetian, City of Dream & Taipa, Taipa is nearer, while for the rest of attractions like Ruins of St. Paul, Lisboa, Senado Square, Macau Tower, Fisherman Wharf...etc. are located on main island of Macau so Macau Outer Harbour Ferry Terminal will be closer.

Thanks for your reply.. :) I noticed the ticket price is increasing.. I found out their Birthday Promotion but have to be purchased on the spot, right? And, the 2 sets ticket is for 2 tickets (return ticket for 1 person) or 4 tickets (return tickets for 2 persons)? MOP168 = HKD168? Hmm, but if i wanna take this, im afraid that will be hassle to purchase the ferry tickets last mins.. Any idea? Hehe.. :P

On Day 3, is it possible to visit Wong Tai Sin temple, Repulse Bay, Causeway Bay, Stanley and Central in the morning and afternoon; about 4pm then goto The Peak? If yes, what would you suggest me to do on Day 5?

Thanks in advance. :)

Now everything's price is increasing!! >"< Yes the Cotaijet Birthday Promotion is only valid when you purchase at their counter, it's clearly stated on the page. Also, the page also stated "2 sets of round-trip ticket", obviously it means : Round-trip Tickets (1 out + 1 return) x 2 Sets = 2 out + 2 return, i.e. round-trip tickets for 2 persons. Hope it's clear... Yap MOP168 = HKD168, and you can use HKD in Macau. No way, you can only risk it if you wanna get cheaper tickets... If it's not on weekends/public holiday, I think it's still OK.

It's still possible to visit those places on Day 3, but could be very rush and you may not have time for shopping in Causeway Bay. If you finally decide to do so, then you can visit Ocean Park on Day 5.

thanks for your prompt reply na.. :) Must we purchase online or prebook the tickets in Ding Ding website? Or just goto their office directly and buy it?

Would like your recommendation for restaurant with nice and romantic ambient for dinner.. :P Haha..

Just to confirm, we can use Octopus card to pay for the bus rides right?

Hi cranberry, as I said I haven't dealed with ding ding before, I can't say for sure that you must buy online or it's still OK to go there directly to buy, but as per their official website suggests people to buy it online.

Harlan's at The One is nice, you can take a look at my food blog about it :

Yes you can use Octopus card to pay for bus fare, actually you can use it on all public transport except taxi, and also retails like convenience stores, supermarkets, and most fast food chains like Mcdonald's, Cafe de Coral, Fairwood & Maxim's MX.

Hi cranberry~! Your trip is coming so soon huh, got the packing done? :) The weather would be a bit cool in coming few days as a cold front coming down from north so better bring light jacket just in case, especially The Peak and Ngong Ping. Check the weather forecast for details : http://www.hko.gov.hk/contente.htm

For the Airport Express Travel Pass, I'm not so sure if it is still valid after a period of time. As per the website, it stated "valid within 180 days of the date of issue", so you should check your friend when it was bought. You can still bring it to HK and ask the MTR customer service counter staff if it's still usable, if not, only buy a new Octopus card.

It's hard to calculate how much you're gonna spend by Octopus card during the trip, so you can first top up HK$200 first, then only top up again when it's gonna be finished. FYI, it can be "negative" only once, with the negative amount not over HK$35. After that it's unable to use again until you top it up. The minimum amount for top up is HK$50, and the rest value can be refunded at any MTR customer service counter.

Have a pleasant trip! :D
