1. Re: Hong Kong Itinerary for 5 nights/4 days

This "itinerary" seems to be a cut-and-paste from many different sources. A bit difficult to follow and incoherent.

>> • Causeway Bay/Time square (MTR to Causeway Bay station.)

• Din Tai Fung - On the 3rd floor of a shopping center in Canton Road <<

Since you are already in Causeway Bay, why go to the Ding Tai Fung in Tsim Sha Tsui (Canton Road). There is one Ding Tai Fung right at Causeway Bay.

= = = = =

>> o Possible Bars: San Miguel (Cantonese name: Seng Lik), Tsing Tao (Ching Dou), Carlsberg (Ga Si Bak), Blue Girl(Lan Mui), Heineken(Hei Lik) and Sol are popular in the town. <<

Sun Lik (separated from San Miguel long time ago), Tsing Tao, Carlsberg and Blue Girl are all brand names for beers, not bars. Just about any bar you go to in Hong Kong would carry them.

= = = = =

>> • Macau: Kai Kei Bakery (Egg Tarts) <<

You go to Macau to eat an egg tart, and then back to Hong Kong? Very confusing.

Hi Happyfeet1234, thanks for your feedback. According to the link I was looking at, I wasn't sure if there was a Din Tai Fung at Causaway but the one in Timesqaure would be good. Most of the itinerary was from a previous itinerary made several years ago, I included the MRT to make sure I know where to go, Macau is only a maybe if we are able to make it back and forth in time. Aside from gambling and dim sum, I'm not sure what else there is to do in Macau.

The Ding Tai Fung in Causeway Bay is on Yee Woo Street, G/F. Next to Regal Hong Kong Hotel.

www.openrice.com/english/restaurant/sr2.htm…

Not quite in Time Square, but very close (about 5 minutes away by walking).

Ding Tai Fung is not quite exactly street food in Hong Kong. They serve Taiwanese style snacks. Signatures are xiaolongbao, pork chop fried rice, beef shank, etc.. all very good.

If you want Hong Kong style street food in Causeway Bay, then there is a food stall (a shop with storefront) right at Time Square:

This one:

Day 5: I don't think you would quite have enough time to visit Macau on the same day with Wong Tai Sin, Chi Lin and such.

By the way MRamAZN N: if you are based in Los Angeles...

There is a Ding Tai Fung in Arcadia:

Have you been there? I ate both at the one at Causeway Bay, Hong Kong, and Arcadia. About the same. They did a good job in quality control.

>>>>>Aside from gambling and dim sum, I'm not sure what else there is to do in Macau.<<<<

Macau is one of the fastest growing centers of tourism in the world. In addition to the casino/gambling scene you will find over 30 World Heritage Attractions, >20 museums, quite a few gardens, parks, squares, temples, cathedrals, art and culture galleries, historic villages and a very good dining scene. We usually go over for 2-4 days at a time now, even being regular visitors from Hong Kong.

Unfortunately, this is not something you can fit into your schedule as a middle of the day task, it requires a full day trip on its own and it will be a long day (4+ hours of total travel time)

If your interested in what to do/see in Macau, you can have a look at the following sources. Or come visit us on the Macau forum here on Tripadvisor.

Din Tai Fung (street food)

-------

Din Tai Fung is anything but street food. It's pretty high end Shanghai style restaurant dining.

Thursday - If you want to sail on the Duk Ling junk you need to register in advance at Hong Kong Tourism Board's Visitor Centre at Star Ferry Pier Concourse in Tsim Sha Tsui. Rides only operate on Thursday and Saturday afternoons and it you wouldn't be able to fit in with visiting Macau on the same day. The rest of the time Duk Ling operates charter services. For details of Duk Ling rides see;

discoverhongkong.com/eng/…duk-ling-ride.jsp

You really need a whole day to visit Macau.

An alternative to Duk Ling is Aqua Luna junk which you can usually see plying its way around the harbour and offers "hop-on, hop-off" day cruises as well as 45-minute evening harbour cruises. You don't usually need to book in advance except for the Symphony of Lights Cruise and can board the junk at Tsim Sha Tsui Pier 1 in front of HK Cultural Centre, near Star Ferry Pier and at Central Pier 9. For details see "Aqua Luna junk here;

www.hongkongextras.com/harbourtours.html

Wednesday - Inspiration Lake is a man-made lake open 9am to 7pm with boating and pedal bikes for rent 10am to 5pm but not really worth going out of your way for.

Just got back from HK and macau. In Macau if you like to see the old macau you can visit Coloane (Ko Lo On). The popular Lord stow's tart is located here. It can be accessed by bus no 70 which you can take at the terminal in front of the Old Lisboa Hotel. On the way to Coloane you can stop at Macau Panda Pavilion if you are interested to see cute panda.
