Hong Kong flight & apartment

woohoo!!!.....I am going to hong kong to 吃东西,买东西, 吃东西,买东西 this dec....=).... the last time i went was 6 years ago.... looking then and now.... so much has changed in these 6 years.... 

anyway, managed to get our air tickets from tigerair at $407 each.... but very sad cos no more big room space seats for us to choose.... i really dun mind paying $25 per way for the extra leg space lo... =( .... now have to survive 4 hours of sitting upright.... haix.... 

was super shocked to find out that hong kong hotel rooms are so expensive and so tiny weeny.... luckily, a visit to hardwarezone (my favourite travel forum) solved the problem.... read from one of the thread that it's much cheaper to rent apartment from airbnb instead... 

so with the Hong Kong map that i downloaded
i decided that we shall stay in Hong Kong island so that we are more accessible to the places that we (I) want to visit... =P

and after browsing thru the website for a few nights, after a few rounds of elimination, after reading thru many many reviews, i chose this 2 room apartment at wan chai area 

living room
dining corner in the living room

bedroom 1 

bedroom 2 

comes with a fully equipped kitchen too

Additional info:
  • 5 minutes walk to Wan Chai MTR station.
  • 5 minutes walk to the Wanchai ferry which take you to Tsim Sha Tsui. You can see the Victoria Habour view during these 8 minutes journey. 
  • 1 MTR station to Admiralty for taking shuttle bus to Ocean Park around 40 minutes.
  • Provides High-Speed Broadband Internet WIFI, TV, DVD player, Hair dryer, Iron & ironing board 
  • Air Conditioners installed in every bedroom and living area 
  • Shower gel & shampoo and fresh clean beddings & bath towels are provided just before your arrival.
  • Basic cooking utensils are provided for simple cooking.
  • It has 24-hour security guard and password is needed for entering the building.

not bad right???? it cost $199 per night and on top of that, there's a $93 booking fee by average out... it cost S$222 per night for 4 people... =) .... i really think it's a good deal given the scarcity of land in hong kong, peak season and quite late booking (the trip is in another 6 weeks time only)... =D.... so excited!!!
