    http://www.macautourism.gov.mo/pdf/h...uTour_2011.pdf

    There are 2 other types of tours offered.

    Thanks in for the valuable input/info. Will look into an make some comparisons. For quick calc,
    1MOP approx 1HKD approx RM0.40 (ie RM1.00 approx HKD2.5, MOP2.5).
    That means, MOP98 ~= RM40 (per pax) quite reasonable.
    War does not determine who is right, it determines who is left.
    Do u have any contribution to make on the SJ/USJ Traffic Problems?

    As for accomodation kenot be much help as hotel expenses were all paid by the corporate account then. But if were to do online booking, I think you can find a deal.

    accomodation in Hk
    cheaper hotels 2-3 stars are mostly situated in sheung wan/north point hk island,prince edward road/mongkok/yaumatei in kowloon.
    better ones in tsimshatsui/nathan road(jordan road section)kowloon,central causeway bay and wanchai -price 400 ringgit-1500
    wanchai is no more a sleazy district -expensive apartments/hotels in the area
    value for money-hotels located outside the MTR route in hunghom,kowloon city,north point or tsun wan which is an hour by mtr to the city


    macau
    mostly 5 stras ranging from 500 ringgit to 1500.
    plenty of 2-3 stars in the old macau peninsula area

    zhuhai-never stayed, no idea,probably a fraction of the prices in macau

    The Hong Kong rates seems to be cheaper when you book through the local tour agencies.

    Let me check the Zhuhai hotel I stayed in. The price is reasonable and it's just walking distant to the Gongbei Underground shopping.

It brings up some feeling of nostalgia... back into prob d 16th centuries haha! Is it advisible to walkaround d Macau Island?
    Ok, buy MTR ticket to Sham Sui Po & go out from Exit A2 & you are right inside Apliu Street. Bargain hard, check prices in other stalls.

    Stanley is next to the sea...nothing much, restaurants, temples, sea sports etc.

    Sure HK's famous for HK DimSum, but then, knowing what to avoid wud save me a good deal of day out. Not all restaurants are the same... there must be some great ones not to be missed, and some to avoid rite?
    If you are interested in horse racing, book a box seat for lunch & you can view the races from above....very nice.

    Some good Dim Sum are Maxim City Hall in Central. Dim sum in Happy Valley etc

    Cheaper ones where Hongkies go is Choi Fook Enterprises---( they have 10 restaurants in HK/Kowloon)

    If you are over 65, you can apply for a senior card, then MTR, trams, buses, trams up to Victoria Hill, entrances to some venues are half prices.

    Yes, it is very convenient and you can use it in MRT, trams, buses and in the shops, entrances fee etc.

    Where are you staying? In HK island or Kowloon?

    Google for them, easy.

    I do not stay in Hotel, so do not have lots of idea on hotels

    That's a real deal not be missed if u know a thing or two abt horses. Try to attend the night races in their Happy Valley course every Wednesday night, it is electrifying! cheapest beer of HK served in their beer garden too.

    You dun have to know much about horses at Shatin Park. Just a pick a number of the horse and see where it comes home first or last. The only way you can win monies from hose racing is when you can talk to horses. From the ex chef who can cook up stories about jockeys , trainers, syce, riding boy, black smith, racing stipe, to animal doc but still wont bet on horses to win. The real winners and the way to win at races is to stop the horses from winning!

    Anwyway, back to Happy Valley - it is a must to go as many who's who's from movie stars to business tycoons would go there to party and to be seen while the majority goes to bet till thier pants off.. Both Australia and Hong Kong, horse racing can actually make the nation pause for 3 minutes in major racing event like Melbourne Cup. And our Malaysian owner Dato Tan Chin Nam is the winnest owner in Melbourne Cup series.

    Hmmm... good reminder. Will do.
    I noe, this might sounds silly, but just wondering if Renmenbi used/accepted/ negotiable in HK & Macau (since HK & Macau returned to Chinese rule)? Imagine, got to carry 3 currencies if I visit these 4 places - really cumbersome leh!

    This horse (HKJC) thingy sounds 'funciting' (fun & exciting). May come out minus my pants! Amusing as it might be, will have to give it a miss unless we have lot's of time to kill. Good suggestion tho, but not likely to make it this trip.
