€5.50 for an audio guide with just 6 points of interest on it. The lines; fine, the crowds; fine but the audio guide was not worth the money.
If you have a car that sits a bit lower you might want to ask for a house that has a more level parking area. Some of the driveways are steep.
A refreshing change, tripods are allowed on the observation platform! As soon as the sun goes down it gets cold very quickly up there!
In room 202 you can only get decent wifi reception (2 bars) by sitting on the toilet. You can still hear the tv from there.
As with most places in NYC - no tripods. I couldn't even take a super clamp and magic arm up, they scan your bags. You can leave them at security and pick up after your visit.
That lanyard around your neck with the audio guide hanging off it? That's yours to keep as a souvenir when you hand back your audio guide at the end of your visit!
Most of the shops here open after 12 noon. No point in coming early.
The reception is on the 5th floor. Not all elevators reach the ground level where the entrance is. Look at the elevator control panels when you get in.
On each floor next to the elevators is a coffee point. €1 for a coffee and hot water for tea available.
Go to MTR Mongkok station, Exit D3, about 20 meters in front of you on the right hand side.
Great food and massive portions - could barely walk afterwards. What did you do to me Harry? Great wait staff, not the over-service you often see around. Croquetas ftw.
Single car key lost on June 22 2013. Please contact me (add me) if you find a single key on a keyring. Much appeciated.
Take time to go behind the shops to the old Marine Police HQ. The old buildings remain, the old stable, the quad, the courtyard all still there. My family were quartered above the stable in the 50's!
Mittags buffet €7,50 Dienstag - Freitag Lunch buffet €7,50 Tuesdays to Fridays.
Unimpressed despite the price. All the fried food had a strange taste to it. Was hard to tell meat from fish on that section - all tasted and felt the same - old, chewy and not fresh.
