Hi,

Hi Tina,

April is a nice time to visit HK except that fact that there is no sale going on during that month... The weather in April is very warm (around 20-25'c), a bit humid but not too wet and a little rain but not too heavy.

Do you have anything in mind for the souvenir? There are no specific souvenir shops which are particularly cheap or nice. Generally you will find shops/stalls selling HK souvenirs along Ladies Street, Temple Street night market, in Tsim Sha Tsui, The Peak and Stanley Market...etc. just around all those tourists spots. I think their price are more or less the same, except The Peak & Stanley, the price would be a bit more higher. If you would like to buy snacks or treats as souvenir, recommend you to buy from Kee Wah Bakery (http://www.kee-wah.com.hk/public/ehome.html). Their price is reasonable with quality products and service.

For places to eat, there are just too many places to be listed in HK~! Perhaps you can refer to the list I posted under Gourmet forum in HK, so that you can get a rough idea of what are the must-eat in HK.

I think you'd better allow about HK$100/day for eat, HK$30/day for transportation (depends on how many spots you visit in 1 day and how far you go, so it may be a lot cheaper or a little bit over, but I guess it wouldn't be over $40 per day unless you take a taxi). I can't estimate the amount for your shopping 'coz it really depends your shopping pattern...

Btw, you will be coming in early/mid/end of April? If in early April, maybe still windy at night but will definitely not cold, just cool. So if you're afraid of cold, bring along light jacket/cardigan just in case.

:excl: Oh yes, the temperature at The Peak is slightly lower and windy, really gotta bring jacket if you plan to go up that day.

There are some shops along Fa Yuen Street North selling cheap shoes and clothes. I think they are cheaper than Malaysia and with more variety~

Fa Yuen Street North is close to Prince Edward MTR station, the part parallel to Ladies Street is also Fa Yuen Street but that part mainly sells sport shoes.

Oh yeah, forgot to tell you that those HK fashion brands like Esprit, G2000, Giodano and Bossini are far cheaper in HK than in M'sia. You can look for Esprit Factory Outlets in Tsim Sha Tsui (on Canton Road China Hongkong City & Hankow Road at the back of Kowloon Hotel), and in Mong Kok's Sai Yeung Choi Street - Hollywood Shopping Centre.

Yes April is not a sale month, but those Hong Kong original brands are still cheaper than their branches in M'sia, becoz they are HK brand ma... just like LV is cheaper in Paris, Coach is cheaper in USA, and Old Town 3in1 Coffee Powder is cheaper in M'sia~!

In Esprit Factory Outlets in HK, you can find short-sleeves tee at around HK$69-1xx, blouse/shirt at around HK$1xx-2xx, jeans at around HK$299-399.... Really worth to take a look.

Hi Tina,

I think you can check the price range in Malaysia first, then compare the price when you reach HK. I guess the price might be slightly cheaper in Malaysia ('coz cheaper handcraft cost), but style must be newer and more choices in HK. If you don't demand any specific brands like Tiffany/Cartier/Bvlgari/Piaget...etc. I recommend you to take a look in these shops :

- J's (http://www.jsnet.com.hk)

- PN (http://www.pn-diamond.com.hk)

- 4'c (http://www.fdcp.co.jp) Japanese brand, so Japanese website only, with some English)

Other than above, you can also go to Chow Sang Sang, Chow Tai Fook, TSL, Luk Fuk jewelry shops.

Tina, sorry I currently have no plan to help members to make itinerary because I think planning itinerary is one of the fun and achievement that one gains from backpacker/free'n easy travel.

Maybe you can browse thru some blogs shared by our members under the "Blog Sharing" part in this forum. Also there is 1 or 2 itineraries posted for comment under this forum too, Hope you can get some ideas from there and make an itinerary which is most suitible for you and your travel partner(s). Cheers~ ;)

Hi tina,

Did you mean this coming Friday? I think it may not be crowded 'coz it's just a normal weekday. For how long required, it depends on your interest in Disney stuff... If you're a super fan, you'd better spare the whole day there, for example from 10am to park close. If you are not that fond of Disney, I guess you can go at noon (provided you're not travelling with kids or elderly). The food inside the park is definitely more expensive that outside. The cheapest is fastfood, but still need around HK$50 per set. FYI, all visitors are prohibited to bring food to the park. You can only bring bottle drinks.

You can walk around Mong Kok after you reach HK on Thursday evening. The Ladies Street, Sneaker Street (real name should be Fa Yuen Street) & Sai Yeung Choi Street are just opposite the Dragon Hostel. There are lots of food around Dragon Hostel, for example, you can try out some HK local street snack like Smelly tofu, curry fishball, "jin yeong 3 bo"...etc. and the Hui Lau Shan dessert at the corners between Sai Yeung Choi Street and Ladies Street, and there are some wanton noodles stalls along the street where Dragon Hostel located. You can explore yourself~ :)
