    Updates on San Francisco?

    Fantastic trip, maybe post some pictures of a couple of the places? My new avatar is a picture taken in HK Disneyland:-D We had a good trip and Disney was good, though no rides to compare with the ones in Florida

    Best photos we took were on the funicular going to see the "Big Budha". Took plenty of the light show in HK harbour and some from the peak, but didn't come out too well:?
    Look forward to seeing a few of yours:thumbsup:

    Remember you saying to take pictures from the ferry:roll: We were too busy eating icecream and trying to keep cool. The heat was probably the only downside to Hong Kong for me. The metro and the hotel room were pretty much the only places where I could cool down.
    How does England seem to you now after tripping right round the world?

    Wow :w00t:

    Wow, fantastic photos! Thanks for posting them, now I can show my friends what it really looked like:-D
    Our pictures are a bit "impressionist" let's say:oops:
    What sort of camera do you use?

    It was 41°c in Vegas, Dunno what it was like for you in Hong Kong but … It was 41°c in Vegas, Dunno what it was like for you in Hong Kong but when we were there it was mid 20's at a guess but definately under 30,It's weird even when I was away it felt like I'd barely left, the main difference is all the greenery everywhere as the tree's and stuff hadn't really grown much when I left.



    I wasn't too good with the humidity, absolutely loved the water parade at Disney as it cooled everyone down:p
    Can't imagine 41C to be honest

    I'll have to rep you for all the info you've given me:-D
    Here I am, picking your brains again and scrounging your holiday pics:oops:

    I can relate to that:roll:
    Started off looking at hostel rooms for HK, but chickened out at the thought that the air con might not be powerful enough;-)
    Ended up in a 4star hotel in the New Territories. Partly because we found one for the same price as most of the hostels though:thumbsup:

    I've got loads of HK will post some more up in a few days along with some … I've got loads of HK will post some more up in a few days along with some other places.


    Cheers, that would be really good:thumbsup: Sure the rest of hotukdeals would enjoy them too:-D

But the room was tiny but really nice and clean, was like £94 for 3 nights for both of us.http://www.hostelsclub.com/hostel-en-8976.htmlWe were on floor 6 though, it's like one owner and 5 different hostels on diff floors.



    We found a room through ebookers. Price was about the same. Brilliant air con, pool, gym, sauna, jacuzzi, playroom etc. It was out of the way, so we took the metro into the centre. Didn't need all the extras as we wanted to see HK more than we wanted to see the hotel:-D I thought HK was really clean and everything was really efficient. Loved the food, so fresh and cheap too.I would definitely recommend anyone to go:thumbsup: Probably not in June though!

    Can we resume our love now?

    Don't think I could have managed that itinerary either!

    Nope, speechless. Should really go to bed. Can't keep up with all you night birds:roll:
