Guide for Hong Kong & Macau #1

Here's a simple guide for Hong Kong & Macau

1. Take Cityflyer A21 to get to Kowloon (like Mongkok, Yau Ma Tei), . The single trip ticket costs HK$33 and round trip tickets cost HK$55. The coach has spaces big enough to put a cabin size luggage in front of the seat. :)

2. Buy their on-loan octopus card. We bought the octopus card instead of the tourist day pass as we didn't take many MTR trips to fully utilise the value of tourist pass. Unlike tourist day pass, it can be used on bus, MTR, taxi and shops. It costs HK$100, with a HK$50 refundable deposit. There is HK$9 admin fee to process the refund.

3. Eat Hing Kee Restaurant's claypot , there are a total of 5 shops around temple street. G/F, 15 Temple Street, Yau Ma Tei Hong Kong

I like their popular chicken and dried octopus claypot rice! Below is the chicken and susage rice..

Try my hubby's 'recommended way' of eating HK claypot rice:

1. Pour the black sauce and oil
2. Mix the rice properly
3. Cover the claypot with the cover
4. Wait for a while (about 5 to 10 mins) to let the sauce seep into the rice.
5. Enjoy!

 4. Eat their exotic 猪红- "pig blood" that are not available in Singapore. We had a very nice one at Mongkok, 204 Portland Street.

This shop also has a very delicious dish which veg that tastes like potato chips.

5. Breakfast at Tak Yue Restaurant. No.378 Shanghai Street, Yau Ma Tei, Hong Kong, China.

It has a good atmosphere of those hong kong's movie. hehe.

Restaurant Auntie insisted us to try this, and it's really nice!

7. Eat the supreme beef brisket soup/horfun at Temple Street - 清湯腩王.

It's my dad's favourite!

8. Take a ferry to Macau. Upon arrival at Macau, hop onto the hotels' shuttle bus.

We took one to Grand Lisboa that is near the historical sites and Venetian Macau to take a look at the grand hotel.

9. Eat Margaret's Cafe e Nata 's egg tarts!! The shop is near the Grand Lisboa Hotel.

The shops at Macau accepts HK$ (they are of equivalent value) so there is no need to prepare Macau currency.

10. Buy Macau egg rolls or almond cookies as gifts! I love those egg rolls from Koi Kee Bakery. They have outlets all over Macau and in HK. You can also get some goodies from Qi hua :) Their egg biscuit is nice!
