    <p>So my question is this.&nbsp; For all of you Mainlanders, how many of you have an interest to travel to Taiwan and/or Hong Kong?&nbsp; If so, which place and why?&nbsp; If you are a Mainlander and have traveled to Taiwan and/or Hong Kong, which place or places did you go, and what did you think of it?&nbsp;</p>

    Flying to HK on 9/27, would like to know about some cool places to go as well!

    hmm, i'm not sure where to recommend you to go, but i think you should check out any Yum-Cha (sp?) restuarants there.  Also, make sure to find some 乾炒牛河(beef chow fun) and 叉燒 (Char-Siu in cantonese which is HK bbq).

    Hahahahaha .. Anna ... how many days are you staying in HK, and where are you staying?

    For most tourists, the huge Buddist on Lantou Island might be worth a visit ... but it is definitely not the biggest in SEA ...

    If you like to eat as much as Bryan, you might also consider having a seafood feast at Jumbo in Aberdeen ... and while you are there, you could go to Stanley Bay and/or Ocean Park ...

    If you have a few more days, you could go to Disneyland, but if you have visited any of the Florida or Japan ones, or Paris, you might find it small and too familiar ...

    Oh, of course, most people who likes to party, could not possibly 兰桂坊!

    (continued) ... heehee ... did you stay with frieneds? or which hotel at Wanchai?

    ...

    (continued) heehee ... that's what I thought, because I remember Cosmo is in C Bay not Wanchai, and I was just about to check the map ... anyway, Cosmo is just a walk away from Sogo and Time Square ... I can understand why you went to TST, but why did you go to Mongkok and Chuanwan?

  • 叮噹叔叔 (令狐叮噹)

    ...

    (continued) ... heehee ... you have surely been a busy girl, visiting the western half of HK NT and Macau ...

    So you have probably gone to 女人街 (or 花园街) too, which is right next to the "sports shoes" area in Mongkok?

    And my guess is that you spent more than one day (and one night) in Macau?  

    By the way, with respect to your previous mention of "humid", July to Sept is the rainy and typhoon season, so it is often humid ... best time to go to HK would be between Nov and Feb, Xmas lights is amazing and the huge shopping discounts would impress most people ...

    ...

    (continued) ... 3 hours in Macau is too short even for non gamblers ... last time my colleagues went to HK, I suggested that they go to Macau early in the morning, visit 大三巴, pick up some of the local snacks, have a fairly authentic Portugese lunch, then go to have a look (even if not gamble) at the casinos, esp Sands ...

    Anyway ... I am glad you enjoyed it :)

    Not a big fan of shopping and disney land....but Hongkong has some amazing hiking trails to explore.... for beach view, Shek O, Sai Kung town and Lamma Island all very beautiful and peaceful...for food, I'd recommend having Dim Sum at a local hongkong restaurant, early in the morning...but that's just my humble opinion.
