The hotel had wonderful rooms and really comfortable beds. The all you can eat dinner buffet was delicious. The pool on the roof was also quite wonderful. Would stay again

It was definitely very busy prior to sunset. I was able to get my tram and observation deck combo ticket quickly for 80HKD(no credit card accepted here), and waited in a long queue. After waiting for 30 minutes, I was finally on my way! When I got to the peak, I went straight ...
... corrugated medal and things patched together to make a roof, also plastic of any kind on the roofs. An old advertisement or banner. Sides of buildings and housing was the same way, and right next to piles of bricks and rubbish. Not like Shanghai but what you would expect where there is such a discrepancy between the rich and the poor. The ride to the airport was great and Andy an escort went along with me and he took care of my luggage and made sure I ...
