After the upcoming Beijing Olympics, I'll be getting my first chance to visit the newest MK of them all.
I'm pretty familiar with the park and its attractions and entertainment, its pros and cons. I'm planning on being in Hong Kong for a week. I'll likely spend one full day in the park and return on another for a few hours to check out the hotels and dine in one.
I do have a few questions that I'm sure some of the HK regulars here can help with, though.
What can I expect for hours the last week in August? (as of yesterday, they only have July hours up on the website)
What are the top 3 must sees/dos in HK?
I may be getting complimentary accomodations through a friend, but otherwise anyone have any thoughts on the Cosmopolitan Hotel West HK or the Eaton Hotel in West Kowloon. They are both rated 4 stars by Priceline and I see regular rates in the $70-80 (US) category. I'm not looking for a great hotel. Just a clean, modern one in a decent area close to transport.
Any suggestions for a truly memorable meal that won't bankrupt a poor American spirit.
As a Vegas lover, is it worth taking a day in Macau?
Finally, I will be flying from Beijing to Hong Kong. I noticed that flights are VERY pricey (like $900) while flights to nearby Shenzen are as low as $350. How easy is to get from the latter to HK? Are there any lower priced alternates that I am missing? I know there's a border crossing deal with Shenzen, but since my visa has multiple entries, I'm assuming the hassle isn't worth paying an extra $500 to fly to Hong Kong directly?
Thanks for any and all responses!
