Hi Travel Buddies,

There is no better time than now to visit Hong Kong and Macau!  Singapore dollar against Hong Kong dollar is the highest now for the past 5 years.

Before we pen down any itineraries, it is important to get some simple orientation right.  Lonely Planet is our all-time favourite travel guide book and has been our great companion for many trips.

About Hong Kong and Macau

Hong Kong can basically be divided into 4 distinct areas:

* Kowloon – the peninsula to the north of Hong Kong island, you can find some of the best museums, sights, hotels and shoppping starting from Tsim Sha Tsui

* New Territories – offers some of the most stunning landscape and hiking trails

* Outlying Islands – there are more than 200 idyllic islands to explore, just to name a few, Lamma, Lantau, Cheung Chau…
