Hy,
This my first time in hk for vacation. I want to hk on that date. My sis friend ask to stay in saikung. My friend told me saikung very far from center. And need more time and money for transportation. We vacation with lowest budget. They advice me to looking for stay around mongkok or center.
I just need a place for me and my sister provide us for stay.

We really easy going, very clean, cheerful and if want to vacation to jakarta I will host and provide some place here.

Thanks n Regards,

Rina wijayanti

what is the budget you are looking for? As hk accommodation is quite expensive recently.

Personally I won't prefer mongkok as there's only 1 decent hotel. Maybe you can think of some area like sha tin or kowloon city.

If you want to know more for suggestion, feel free to let me know :)

I live in Sai Kung but not as far as town Center ;)

It takes MAX 40 mins for minibus all the way to Mong Kong from Sai Kung town Centre (HK$16). Mong Kok MTR is red line on MTR. You have ladies Market in Mong Kok as well as Temple street

You can check out most of the touristy attractions of HK at:

From my Sai Kung outskirts location it takes me 30 mins max to Mong Kok (still HK$16). 20 mins to Hang Hau MTR (under HK$10)(Purple Line) and 25 mins to Choi Hung MTR (under HK$10)(Green line).

It takes me about an hour to get to work each morning in Central (2nd to the end of the blue line).

If I go out late in Central, it's HK$160 taxi home unless u have friends to do breaky with until MTR opens ;p
