  1. My tips :

    – Buy electronics : with the AUD so high, they are much cheaper than over here

    – Buy electronics at a major brand : they can’t actually rip you off because you are a foreigner

    – Find someone that can speak Cantonese to show you around

    – Eat a major food chains – you’ve got no chance with only English at the small local stores

    – 999 is the emergency number (not 000)

  2. – eat at the famous mango place that has heaps of mango desserts. don’t worry there are heaps of them around. its a red looking cafe
    – always shop around for prices. there is this building that has 3 floors of computer ware and each level gets cheaper and cheaper. you can buy cameras there too and its cheaper than on the street. i can’t remember where it is or what its called. i can ask my dad if he remembers.
    – buy clothes! hk people are so fashionable!
    – electronic shopping is best at kow long island
    – eat heaps!
    – lots of places doesn’t have an english menu
    – lonely planet does a pretty good job of taking you to places
    – there is a street full of pubs and clubs on the hongkong island. definitely must go there. sooooo much fun. there are two aussie bars. kangaroo and woollamaloo (?)
    – temple street is the man’s market because it has more electronics

    btw hongkong isn’t as cheap as it used to be.

    omg i love hongkong. the late opening hours the shopping! oh the shopping and the food!

    its not cold there. i went there in winter and it was warmer than melbourne’s “summer” -_- btw it was freezing on saturday. i had so many layers on!!!!!

  3. haha, wow… I’m not there on holiday, I have to actually get some work done >.< but thanks for the tips! p.s. it's woolloomooloo (Sydney suburb :D) p.p.s. and you wonder why I moved to Sydney :D
