I'm visiting Hong Kong late December, after Christmas, and will stay there for 2 days.
So far I have planned the following : 1. The Peak (also go through the Wax house) 2. Ocean Park 3. Ngong Ping (Cable car and The Big Buddha statue) 4. Sky 100 5. Do little shopping for clothes, souvenirs (no fancy electronics or jewelry). I heard the best shopping areas are Causeway Bay, Mong Kok, Stanley and Ladies' Market.
But from what i read, there are some negative things about Stanley and Ladies Market, which entails the items they sell are kind of rubbishy. Is that true? Which street market, shops or mall/outlet store would be nice to visit and buy quality products (clothing, souvenirs) with reasonable price.
Since this is my first time, i'm little concerned how i can go around and use the transport. When i first land on HK Intl Airport, i get back luggage, go through costumes and buy A) Buy octopus card and load with 500 HK$ or B) Get Airport Express ticket C) Get into the bus to city? Which is more effective way to get to my hotel. Also when i leave HK, what transport/ticket do i need to buy to go to airport?
Also where can i exchange money to get the good rate? At the Airport or in city?
Thank you so much, your advises will make my travel much better.Edited: 26 November 2015, 14:06
