HK 3/4days 2008

Just came back from HK on 1st Oct 2008 midnight, what a tired and buy days in HK.

Was monitoring the weather there last few days before departure, and was quite a worry that Typhoon Jangmi would strike HK, but fortunately for me that its divert its path to Taiwan (pity those residents there).

Took the 8.30 flight to HK and reach there ard 12noon, took their airport express train to Kowloon MTR and board their free shuttle bus to Hotel Prudential. This hotel is located along Nathan Road, the hotel room is well organised with all the necessaries in place, clean, tidy and big enuff for 2 or 3 adults. Their double seem to be larger than the king size in my house???

Very satified with their mattress, very comfortable, soft but supportive. Highly recommended...
Rest and head to Nathan street for window shopping, the street to my opinion is not as clean as this tiny city here but they their sales promoters are definitely better if not good, they tend to give their opinion or suggestion on what fit you...which are most welcome.

First day finish with visiting the Symphony of Lights at TST Avenue of Stars.
2nd day was at HK Disneyland the whole day, nothing much to say about this except one of their attraction which scare my kid till cry I almost cry too, it was Space Mountain...heck its too scary for kid.
The 3rd day was going to Lantau Island to see the Giant Buddha. The scence from the cable was magnificent. Then we head to city and going to the Peak to see HK night view from The Peak.

Last day was spending by shopping ard Ladies market and Sport wear stree. Bought a Nike Air Zoom LX 3+ AP Trainer for myself and my dad got himself a Timberland DL24 Trainer Low. Two of them cost only HK$618, a very good price.... nike cost HK339 (SGD63) and Timberland cost HK279 (SGD51).
