    The good thing is rmb is down so less mainlanders :)

    Weather is chilly/cold, although its not -xx degrees, HK has that chilly atmosphere where you still cant get warm no matter how much layers you put on.

    But overall, its still a great time to come

    Good point with rmb. :thumbsup: I will tell it to my cousin because now she doubts about the price of tickets and the mainlanders.
    I have to convince her to go with me.


    I don't like winter, I think HK can be ok compare to other places like America or Europe.
     
  4. amano.aiamano.ai where you from? lol :lol: you should tell your cousin, that the price of tickets should be ok... and the mainlanders, well.... after a little while you'll get used to them. They'll be like background/grey noise :rofl:

    I am really planning my trip now so according to your answer I'm going too bother you a little :p .

    I haven't a list of questions but first I'd like to know what we can do for NYE except going to Lan kwai fang.

    I saw there will be a firework so do you think it is a good idea to search for a place to see it ?

    I guess the avenue of stars will be crowded but maybe we can go somewhere else to see it.

    I saw many place have to be booked early, do you think it will be ok in october ?

    ^ If you find a place for the fireworks...let me know. I've been in HK before for CNY fireworks so I imagine it'll be similarly planned (near the harbour). People will be lining up hours before and it's going to be mad mad busy. I would not recommend being near the TST/avenue of the stars area.

    And for the record, LKF is seldom a bad option!

    Yes, I'm a little afraid by this so that's why I'd like to plan this now and not when I'll be there.

    for fireworks, you can see it clearly (front view) on two sides
    a) TST
    b) CWB, WanChai, admiralty, central

    TST from experience is packed as fuk. so best option is probably wan chai/central

    ideally central is nice and open but it really depends on the wind and smog etc.

    It's time to update !
    I had a great trip.
    Even if it's not the first time in HK I really enjoyed it. I saw other places than before and the weather was good even if there is a lot of smog in my pics.
