When I first suggested Hong Kong for our trip this year, he gave me a big NO!! – mainly because of the not so friendly local and overpriced hotel. You know the story right – you’ll have to order fast or you’ll get a death stare, you can’t ask what’s today special or risk being scold, you can’t ask for price unless you are death sure you want to buy that and bla bla…. but actually, it wasn’t that bad. At least it didn’t happen to us. In fact, some of them are pretty polite.
Neway, my persistent pay off and we flew with Air Asia – managed to grab the promo rate 🙂 The flight from LCCT to HKIA is approximately 3 hours 50 minutes.
Half way through, we felt bored so we ordered something to eat. nasi lemak sotong at RM10 and mineral water at RM3
If you are taking the airport express to Hong Kong island, you can see the ticketing counter once you exit from the custom.
managed to purchased the promotion rate for group traveler – HKD80 per ticket (minimum 2 person – normal HKD90)
Octopus card is very useful and can be purchase from any MTR station or at airport information counter. HKD150 per card with HKD100 credit. HKD50 and the remaining balance will be refunded when you return the card. (Notes: HKD7 will be deducted from each card during refund)
Airport express ticket check. Octopus card check. We are ready to board the train to Hong Kong island 🙂
The train is clean and the seat is comfortable with ample space for luggage
As we will be going to Yau Ma Tei, we need to get to Tsuen Wan line at Central station. It is quite a walking distance from Hong Kong station and trust me, don’t take MTR during peak hour. I repeat… DON’T take especially with luggage unless you don’t mind being push and step – it’s already packed like sardin and yet they’ll still make use of every single inch of space available.
Checked in at Bridal Tea House, refresh ourselves and went for the best ramen (as he claimed) at Yokozuna for dinner.
It’s common to see queue in most of the restaurant and sharing table is almost a must. Remember to alwiz ask if there are number given out or you have to line up.
Waited for an hour and finally 57, 2 pax… 57, 2 pax… Here!! here!!!
My seasoned boiled egg ramen at HKD42 consists of one hard boiled egg with runny yolk, pork meat, vege and pork soup. It was a very big bowl of springy noodle and flavorful soup. I couldn’t finish it but I love the egg… yumssss!!
He ordered kyushu ramen at HKD47 with pork slice and pork soup. I still prefer my order as this came with ginger and bamboo shoot.
Business hours are from 12pm to 11pm.
Address: 466-472, Nathan road
To get there: From Bridal Tea House, you’ll need to get to the opposite of the street as illustrate below.
Strolled around Yau Ma Tei after dinner. Went to Temple street, Jade street and Ladies street – I think so based on the things they are selling. 🙂 there’s no signboard lo… lol
This is located opposite the hotel
selling fish balls, pork and beef innards
This costs HKD20.
After the supper, we call it a day. Pretty exhausted from all the walking and waiting.
