Hi icecold, thanks and you're welcomed~ :)

i need serious help here, had not been really good in planning itinerary especially this is my very first time visiting HK/Macau. and seems that im the only one that should be coming up with this itinerary :mellow: so a little help is needed here. due to my current work schedule, unable to do much research at the moment :ph34r: especially transportation wise and how to travel around.. advise needed ;)

Day 1 - 28th Oct Sunday

i'll be landing in Macau on 28th Oct with my family of 4 including myself. apparently we will be landing macau 8:50pm which is quite late. what can we do there after checking-in hotel, most probably Sintra Hotel where the famous Portugese Egg Tart nearby call Cafe de Nata?

Cafe de Nata Margaret's is located on one of the main roads in Macau, in Cantonese it's called "San Ma Lo". I think you can take cab to go or ask hotel's concierge for which bus to take and where to get off. But I'm afraid you can't try it on this day 'coz it's closed at around 8pm.

1) What can we do there since we will be reaching later? plan to just visit some casinos there and a few bets probably? ^_^

Not much to do at night in Macau except casino...

Day 2 - 29th Oct Monday

Planning to take the earliest ferry to HK using First Ferry (my sister recommended me this).

Most probably staying at The Stanford Hotel which is located at Mongkok, Kowloon (recommended by my sis as well)

Your sister's info is outdated... First Ferry no longer operates Macau routes and it's taken over by Turbojet already. So you can either choose Turboject or Cotaijet. You can refer their official website for fare and schedule. If you're staying in Mongkok, suggest you to disembark at Tsim Sha Tsui's China Hong Kong Ferry Terminal and take cab to your hotel.

Plans to visit The Peak, Stanley Market, TST Promenade and shopping at Nathan Road. Any other shopping suggestions?

Suggest you to visit Stanley first 'coz it's the farthest. Take MTR to Central and walk to Exchange Square, take bus no. 6 or 6X and get off at Stanley Village. Then from there take the same bus back to Central Exchange Square, take bus no. 15 to The Peak. After finished The Peak, take Peak Tram to Lower Peak Tram Terminus in Central, and take bus no. 15C from there to Central Ferry Pier. Then take Star Ferry to Tsim Sha Tsui. TST Promenade & Avenue of Star are just around there.

At nite visit Avenue of Stars and the Symphony of Lights show.

After the show, suggest either to Harbour City shopping, and can visit Heritage 1881 for photo shooting.

**Any lunch or dinner suggestions are most welcome pls pls as i had really no idea where's the best place to eat.

Please do take some time to browse through our food blog for gourmet choice: http://forum.allabouthongkong.com/index.php?/blog/6-all-about-hong-kong-food/

Day 3 30th Oct Tuesday

Plan to visit Ocean Park.

Q: How long should i spend in Ocean Park? due to limited time constraint, dont wish to stay too long in there :lol: unless its really fun..

Based on my last visit on a weekend in March 2012, I spent around 6-7hours in the park. There were not much crowds and I didn't need much time on queueing at that day. FYI 30/10 is Halloween and Ocean Park has special event "Halloween Bash" from 5:30pm till late. So you see if you wanna stay for the excitment or not. This event is a famous one and their haunted houses are damn horrifying... Check here for details: http://www.halloweenbash.com.hk

Mongkok area shopping and eating.

Q: What are the food attractions there?

Street snack is must try in Mongkok. Check our food blog for idea.

Ladies Market

Can visit Fa Yuen Street and even Temple Street as well if time allows. Take MTR and get off at Jordan for Temple Street.

Day 4 31st Oct Wednesday

Plan to make this a shopping day. i only know the places i wanna go but not sure how accessible are these places in between. here's my list:

1) Time Square, Causeway Bay

2) Harbour City, TST

3) Fa Yuen Street, Mongkok

4) City Gate

5) Temple Street

6) Yick Man Building, 5-19 Ha Heung Road, Hong Kong <-- This place must vist for my personal shopping :D

Pls kindly advise where should i slot this places to visit.

Citygate is the farthest so visit there first. Then go to Time Square in Causeway Bay. Visit Yick Man Building after that. If you've covered Harbour City, Fa Yuen Street & Temple Street in previous days, then you may consider to stay a bit longer at Tung Chung for the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car & Giant Buddha.

Any other MUST VISIT places that i missed out?

Day 5 1st November Thursday

Probably have time until evening before departing back to Macau. Any suggestions?

As you arrive late in Macau on Day 1, would you consider to go to Macau earlier and cover some tourist spots in Macau?

Day 6 2nd November Friday

Flight back to KL @ 10.45am

Pls help me plan add suggestion to my itinerary. Sorry for an itinerary so brief and i apologise for that. just too busy at the moment and am afraid that i might be late for planning my itinerary.

You still have plenty of time to plan. Recommend you to spend some time on reading others' itineraries here for your reference to plan one for yourself~ Cheers~ ;)

hi northasian,

pertaining to the ferry from macau to hongkong, u suggested that i disembark at Hong Kong China Ferry terminal.

i had check Turbojet and CotaiJet schedule.

1) Turbojet - I cannot see that any of their sailings disembark at HK China terminal. how many terminals are there from macau-hk?

2) CotaiJet - From Macau Taipa Ferry Terminal to HK China Ferry Terminal, there's only one sailing which is at 5pm only :wacko:

Pls advise and correct me if im wrong.

Without disembarking at the HK China Ferry Terminal, how far is it to get to my hotel (Stanford Hotel Mongkok)?

Hi icecold,

For turbojet, you have to choose "Kowloon-Macau" by the dropdown menu under "Sailing schedule & fare", and here is the link: http://www.turbojet.com.hk/eng/schedule/prd6.asp

For Cotaijet, maybe their main operation is between Sheung Wan & Macau instead of Kowloon, so they have few frequency to/from Kowloon...

You can also choose to arrive at Sheung Wan, and take MTR from Sheung Wan station to Mongkok or Yau Ma Tei. It takes around 20mins to go with 1 interchange at Central station.

Yes sure you can take other forumers' itineraries' as reference, this is one of the purposes of this forum~ :)

Temple Street (廟街)

Ok. But you may have to move some to Day 4 if can't finish all within this day. To be frank, Symphony of Lights is a boring show to me and almost all of my foreign friends visiting HK, so if you find bored after 5mins, don't waste time, leave and go walk around. ;)

Day 4 31st Oct Wednesday

Ocean Park tour

Take MTR from Mong Kok (旺角) station to Admiralty (金鐘) station

Take Citybus Route 629 to go Ocean Park

Leave Ocean Park around evening.

What can i do after Ocean Park?

Im thinking of moving some shopping on Day 3 to Day 4. what do u suggest? Times Square or Citygate here or move it to Day 5 after visiting Ngong Ping 360 and Giant Buddha?

Best visit Time Square, Sogo, the newly opened Hysan Place in Causeway Bay after Ocean Park. They have bus to Causeway Bay directly at park exit if I'm not wrong, go check the bus stop details when you are there. Citygate must be on Day 5 if you plan to visit Giant Buddha, it's far away from downtown.

Day 5 1st November Thursday

Visit Ngong Ping 360 and Giant Buddha in the morning.

Check out hotel.

Suggest other places to visit before i depart to Macau around evening 5-6pm? what time should i avoid those peak hours?

You have to check out hotel before visiting Ngong Ping, Giant Buddha and Citygate 'coz only transportation can take up an hour for each way. You can leave your luggage at hotel after check out and go to Lantau. After you finished Lantau, take bus or MTR back to hotel and take back your luggage then go to Macau. Ngong Ping 360+Giant Buddha+Citygate shopping could take up the whole day already. If you have a lot of time left, you may consider visiting Tai O fishing village after Ngong Ping + Giant Buddha and before Citygate. Peak hours are 0800-0900 & 1800-1900, but other time could be crowded too....

Day 6 2nd November Friday

Flight back to KL @ 10.45am so i guess there's nothing much that i can do in Macau.

Plan to get some egg tarts at Margaret's Café e Nata (瑪嘉烈葡塔) before leaving to airport. How far is the airport from town? can i get it in time?

Macau is a tiny place, I think it only takes 15mins by cab from town to airport... so don't worry.

Take bus at the park exit to Causeway Bay and Visit Time Square, Sogo and the newly opened Hysan Place in Causeway Bay.

How expensive are the taxis in HK actually? how do they charge? does all taxi goes by metre charge? im afraid that sometimes when we lose directions with the bus or MTR and end up have to opt for taxis.

Day 5 1st November Thursday

Check out hotel.

Visit Ngong Ping 360 and Giant Buddha after checking out hotel.

Did not plan to visit the Tai O fishing village.. will visit Citigate after giant buddha.

Ladies Street (=Tung Choi Street) & Sport Shoes Street (=Fa Yuen Street) are parallel to each other and just 1 block away so they're very close, Temple Street is in Jordan/Yau Ma Tei, so it takes around 15-20mins walking from Mongkok to there.

Expensive or not is very subjective, so here is the link about standard taxi fare for your reference: http://www.td.gov.hk/en/transport_in_hong_kong/public_transport/taxi/taxi_fare_of_hong_kong/index.html Yes, all taxis must be charged on meter, except those taxis on call for long distance may offer 10-20% discount.

Day 5 1st November Thursday

Check out hotel.

Visit Ngong Ping 360 and Giant Buddha after checking out hotel.

Did not plan to visit the Tai O fishing village.. will visit Citigate after giant buddha.

Walk towards Ruins of St. Paul's Cathedral (圣保罗大教堂)

Pork chop bun at Café Tai Lei Loi Kei (大利來記咖啡室) near Macau Creations (Edificio Tsui Nga)

Visit Koi Kei Bakery (鉅記餅家), Edificio Mang Fung (明豐大廈), (next to St. Paul's Cathedral)

Koi Kei is everywhere, almost a few steps away then you will find another branch! So you don't need to fix which branch to visit... ok noted!!

Fun at Ruins of St. Paul's Cathedral (圣保罗大教堂)

Venetian, Citry of Dreams, The Sands Cotail Channel

Would not want to spend too much time sightseeing coz i believe my mum would want to spend some time in the casino lol..

Is my overall macau tour ok??

OK, as long as you would like to spare some more time for casino.

Day 3 30th Oct Tuesday

Check out hotel 8/9am and take either Turbojet or CotaiJet.

ETA in HK 10am -Check in Standford Hotel, Mongkok.

12pm- Langham Place, Argyle Center, Fa Yuen Street, Ladies' Market, Sport Shoes Street, Harbour City, Clock Tower, Heritage 1881, Avenue of Stars, The Peak

All the above places in Mongkok area rite? Can pls suggest a route on how to make the trip flow better? Possible to cover all the above?

No, as you've already mentioned in your last plan that you need to take MTR to Central in order to get to The Peak, so The Peak is in Central but not in Mongkok... Also, after getting down from The Peak you will take Star Ferry to Tsim Sha Tsui, right? So Harbour City, Clock Tower, Heritage 1881 & Avenue of Stars are in Tsim Sha Tsui instead of Mongkok. The places in Mongkok stated above are Langham Place, Argyle Centre, Fa Yuen Street, Ladies Street and Sport Shoes Street (=Fa Yuen Street).

8pm- Symphony of lights,

9pm- Temple Street (Jordan/Yau Ma Tei)

11pm- Back Hotel

Day 4 31st Oct Wednesday

8am - Suggest a place for breakfast before going Ocean Park?

Can try Mui Kee Congee in Mongkok: http://forum.allabouthongkong.com/index.php?/blog/6/entry-451-mui-kee-congee-%E5%A6%B9%E8%A8%98%E7%94%9F%E6%BB%BE%E7%B2%A5%E5%93%81-mong-kok/

10am - Ocean Park tour

Take MTR from Mong Kok (旺角) station to Admiralty (金鐘) station

Take Citybus Route 629 to go Ocean Park

4pm - Leave Ocean Park

Take bus at the park exit to Causeway Bay and Visit Time Square, Sogo and the newly opened Hysan Place in Causeway Bay.

For the above shopping place, Time Square-Sogo-Hysan Place near to each other?

Yes. You can make use of Google Map for location & walking direction.

- What time can i shop until?

About 10pm. But shops along street might close a bit later I guess, e.g. Forever 21 opposite Hysan Place closes at 1am. Do watch out for last train of MTR departs at around 12am.

- After shopping, suggest a place for dessert before going back hotel?

Lucky Dessert or any places that still open around Mongkok. There are lots of eateries open till late in Mongkok.

- Anything that i can still slot in here after the shopping before going back hotel?

I guess no...

Day 5 1st November Thursday

Check out hotel.

Visit Ngong Ping 360 and Giant Buddha after checking out hotel.

- What is the best route to get to the NP360 and Giant Buddha?

MTR Tsuen Wan Line from Mongkok to Lai King, interchange to Tung Chung Line and get off at Tung Chung station. NP360 cable car terminal is very close to the exit, follow signs for walking direction. Giant Buddha is at Ngong Ping, so after getting off from the cable car you can follow signs to go to the Giant Buddha.

Citigate

- How to go Citigate after Giant Buddha?

Cable car down back to Tung Chung or New Lantao Bus no. 23. (http://www.newlantaobus.com/road_23.htm)

- Roughly how long would i need to visit all NP360, Giant Buddha and Citigate?

It depends on individual. If you like shopping, probably you will spend half day just at the Citygate, or if you like natural scenery, you would spend more time to explore places around Giant Buddha, e.g. including a short hike to the Wisdom Path. So it's hard to say.

- After Citigate, how do i get back to Stanford Hotel, Mongkok?

The reverse way of how you go, 'coz all the attractions in this day are based in Tung Chung.

Take luggage from hotel and back to Macau.

- Time unknown

Day 6 2nd November Friday

Flight back to KL @ 10.45am so i guess there's nothing much that i can do in Macau.

Plan to get some egg tarts at Margaret's Café e Nata (瑪嘉烈葡塔) before leaving to airport.

Otherwise, you can try Tong Pak Fu (http://forum.allabouthongkong.com/index.php?/blog/6/entry-85-tong-pak-fu-%E7%B3%96%E7%99%BE%E5%BA%9C-mong-kok/)

Also, which Telco sim card do u recommend getting for tourists? Does HK Telco provide such service where u get to register data plan for a certain short period of time ie 3 days data plan for HK$XX?

I suggest you to take one way bus and one way Peak Tram to/from The Peak. You can take bus 15 to The Peak, then Peak Tram back down to Central. After Peak Tram arrives at the Peak Tram Lower Terminus in Central, you can take bus 15C and get off at Peddar Street, and walk to the MTR nearby then go to Causeway Bay.

It doesn't matter which SIM card to buy, 'coz all of them are more or less the same. The general one costs around HK$48 and its validity up to 180days.

5pm - Take MTR to Tsim Sha Tsui and visit Harbour City, Heritage 1881

OK.

7pm - Take MTR to East Tsim Sha Tsui and visit Avenue of Stars

You don't need to take any transportation to go, it's just a few mins of walk from Harbour City... and basically Tsim Sha Tsui station and East Tsim Sha Tsui station are inter-linked by underground pathway and no need to take MTR to travel between these 2 stations. You can check the walking direction on Google Map.

8pm- Symphony of lights, (Whats the easiest way to go to the Symphony of Lights?)

Symphony of Lights is not a location but only a light & music show that "performed" by a series of buildings along the harbourfront of Victoria Harbour. The best viewing point is Avenue of Star, or anywhere along the harbourfront promenade starting from Star Ferry Pier till the end of Avenue of Stars.

9pm- Take MTR to Jordan/Yau Ma Tei to visit Temple Street (Jordan/Yau Ma Tei)

OK, but if you're not tired you can try walking along the Nathan Road to Jordan, it takes around 20mins of walk from Tsim Sha Tsui.

11pm- Take MTR to Mongkok and back Hotel

OK.

Day 4 31st Oct Wednesday

8am - Mui Kee Congee in Mongkok

9am- Visit Ngong Ping 360 and Giant Buddha

After The Peak, take Peak Tram down to Central. Take bus 15C and get off Peddar Street and walk to the MTR to get to Causeway Bay and visit Time Square, Sogo and the newly opened Hysan Place

OK, this is the fastest way. If you still got plenty of time, you can try taking Ding-Ding Tram on the eastbound route from the Peddar Street stop and get off at Paterson Street stop. It takes about 30mins. Please refer here for route map if you're interested: http://www.hktramway...peastbound.html

Take MTR back to Mongkok to take luggage and take taxi to Kowloon Port to catch Turbojet back to Macau

OK.

6pm - Depart to Macau

Day 6 2nd November Friday

Flight back to KL @ 10.45am so i guess there's nothing much that i can do in Macau.

Plan to get some egg tarts at Margaret's Café e Nata (瑪嘉烈葡塔) before leaving to airport.
