Hi guys, we will be visiting HK for 7D6N including one night in Macau. We have bought most of the attractions/entrance tickets, hotels and ferry paid. We plan to change about RM3k to HKD and just wondering if it is enough for 2pax? Mainly to foods, junks, MTR and other transport around etc.

For me, it is way insufficient cos food in HK is not cheap. It is even worse in Macau. Eateries accepts cash and you can load up your Octupus card as it is also widely accepted and only larger restaurants accept CC. I think you'll need something like HKD8K cash minimum for 2pax for a 7D6N visit. The cab fare alone from the airport to Mongkok is about HKD230.

8 hour stopover ain't much considering the fact that your transportation time to and from Kowloon will take 2 hours away from your 8 hour stopover. Additionally you will need another 2 hours for your check in when you leave HK and 8 minus 4 and you'll have max 4 hours left. Factor in another hour for traffic jams and walking time, you are now left with a mere 3 hours.
If I had only 3 hours, I will visit Mongkok/TST instead. Plentiful of eateries and shopping there.

Aiyah, 1 hour to Kowloon and 1 hour back = 2 hours lah. You are not thinking of calculating only a one way trip, right? I am estimating by taxi, not express train. Also, you better pray that their luggage handlers aren't on strike.

It's quite a walking distance from MTR station. So not really advise to take airport express then exchange to MTR with all your luggages.

Perhaps u can take airport express to Kowloon..Then from Kowloon only take taxi to your hotel.

6 nights..around RM220/night

Bro, food in Kowloon is aplentiful. All yummy. What you have to do is just walk around and see which one is crowded with a queue at the front. That's the one you should try lah. What time are you landing in HK?

I think you have no options except taking the bus cos 4 pax plus luggage ain't gonna fit into 1 taxi...unless you take 2 cabs and that will be quite costly.
