First of all, many thanks to all the contributors to this Forum, you've been a wealth of advice!
My question is around what we plan to do and if I've chosen the best option for travel around.
Arriving in HK around 4 PM on Friday 4th Sept, plan to take A21 bus to Nathan Road (for Nathan hotel). If we're not too shattered, a harbour cruise to watch the Symphony of Light that evening.
Saturday we plan to get the Big Bus tour (hop on, hop off) which includes a Star Ferry ticket, and the peak tram, touring Kowloon in the morning and HK Island in the afternoon, including a visit to the Peak. Evening, a meal somewhere (the Jumbo floating restaurant?) and just wander if we still have any energy.
Sunday, perhaps a Sunday Brunch somewhere then a little retail therapy or a trip to Lantau Island for the Big Buddha. On Monday we fly out to Bangkok at 14.10 so will need to be at airport by midday.
If we buy an octopus card, how much on top of the $50 deposit should we load it with? HKD100, HKD200?
Does the A21 bus take Octopus?
Any comments on our planned itinerary or things we simply should NOT miss? I've tried to keep plans as loose timewise as possible so we can slot other things in if we want.
