    Visiting Macau, and Hong Kong

    Hey everyone,


    I am going to be visiting Macau, and Hong Kong in November. Any suggestions on what order to do them in where to stay etc would be appreciated. I obviously want to spend 2 days in HKDL. I know most people think it's a waste but I love Disney and if I am going all the way there I want 2 days no matter what. In HK I have heard to check out the market place and the budda on the hill. Get a Octopus card in HK for their mass transit system. I don't know much about Macau at all except I hear i'll love it since I love Las Vegas lol. Anyways thanks for any input.

    Hey,

    I'm off for a quick weekend to HKDL in September, it's been a few years since i last visited Hong Kong and Macau, and Macau has exploded since then. However my tips are

    - Make sure you spend some time exploring Hong Kong Island and Kowloon, Kowloon has the Temple St Night market, a must and Ladies Market, both are great experiences and you'll get some great shopping done.

    - Don't bother with Ocean Park. It's rubbish and trashy.

    - The Peak is great for an amazing view of Hong Kong, just take the tram up.

    -I haven't visted the Buhdda as the road was blocked on my last visit, and the airial transport wasn't finished yet, but i hear it's a must!

    If you have time try to get across to Shenzen, it's a crazy town with some great deals. However Hong Kong is much, much nicer.

    Have fun!

    Macau isn't as much like Las Vegas as you'd think. People are there to play Baccarat and everything else is incidental. Even slots take a back seat. There's barely any shows or other entertainment options.

    That said, there is one must see attraction. "The House of Dancing Water" is a Cirque style water show that won a Thea award. Get seats in the front row if you can (they're usually available) but you will get wet.

    Re: Visiting Macau, and Hong Kong

    I just got back from HK earlier this month!

    I also was told by a few people that it's pointless to go to Disneyland because we have one in Cali, but I beg to differ. It was worth going to, especially to see Mystic Manor and Grizzly Mountain.

    The big buddha you are referring to is in the same island as Disneyland, but on the other side I believe.

    As for markets, the best one is the ladies market in mong kok. We had so much fun there. Great deals on stuff, just be prepared to bargain.

    Also, MTR rules. It's real clean and easy to use. One word of advice, if you have a smartphone use your compass. We got disoriented a few times and got lost. A compass would have helped us.

    If you have any other questions PM me. Enjoy your trip!

    I also agree with going to the peak. Great view of Hong Kong. I recommend going at dusk, so you can see it both during the day and night (different views).

    Also, take the Star Ferry from Kowloon to Hong Kong Island. Great experience, and it's cheap!
