Think cathay but more MK , the seats are old style so they are bigger. I actually prefer the ipad, way faster and more reliable than seat back.

Planning another trip to Hong Kong in June (I've only been once)

I was there last May and wasn't even "summer yet", took like 4 showers a day at the hotel lol. Can't imagine what June is like......

Literally walk out and sweating and sticky. I guess if you wanna lose weight, good place to be haha. Did a lot of outdoor exploring since I like hiking etc.

I'm old lol, didn't really check out the party scene, so won't be able to chime in on that.

It doesnt get scorching hot but the humidity starts to kick in.

LKF is not the place to be nowadays, unless you like rowdy expat guys or tourists.

how many days?

start with Kowloon side
1) Shum Shui Po: checking out the market + eating snake soup.
2) Mong Kwok: women street + eat all the street food 1 street behind
3) Walk to Yau Ma Tei (20 minutes): Temple street & eat pissing shrimp, razor clams etc street food.
4) Take the double decker bus (3 dollars HKD) to Tsim Sha Tsui
a) Check out the shopping district or go up to Isquare & 37 floor to Eyebar
b) Have a drink / or pizza right by the Harbour City at Paper moon.
5) Star Ferry over to Hong Kong side.

Hong Kong
LKF area has a few good place
1) egg tarts + milk tea (literally 20 second walk from each other)
2) duck + noodle soup. very famous
3) Mid level escalators, soho, lan kwai fong, tons of bars
4) Hanukkah & just chill at LKF
5) enjoy LKF. a) there is no entrance fees to the pubs and bars b) you pay after each drink you order even if you're seating at a table.

a) Check out the peak (have a beer) and enjoy the view
b) Lantau + Buddha
c) Go hiking
d) Sai Kung if you have time, go early and enjoy sea food (while you order by the sea). *Go for a boat ride (70 HKD) and see some of the remote islands by boat
e) Go to Chang Zhou or Shek O to just chill and relax.
f) ride the ding ding and check out the horse race on Wed & Sunday at Happy Valley.

Start with that, if you plan your dates right, it'll be a good 4 days for you.

Going to HK from Nov 5 - 10. First time going and it will be my mom's first time coming back since like 40yrs ago. Will be staying in Sha Tin.

Realistically we only have 4 full days. Any recommendations to maximize this trip?

So far we got Tian Tan Buddha, Macau for a half a day/full day, maybe Ocean Park.

Definitely hit up the peak.

Here a great advice: ask your mom what she still remembers about HKG and maybe spend a day or half just to walk around places she remembers when she was last there

It's a great way to learn about culture and about your moms past

I remember when I was in staying in HKG for week just to renew my dads homecoming card, we spend a day walk up to Waterloo mountain area (I'm not sure if it's called that in English) near mk

I grew up there when I was a kid (even though I flew a lot), my cousins also grew up there too, it bought back a bit of memories (for both of us)

But other than that I have seen every car on display in DTP just by cruising about in Richmond, thank you very much for collecting them together and get someone to sing a cover for "fuck you".

OH FUCK YOU OH OH OOOOH~

Already asked. Their old neighborhood basically got revamped, the school might still be there.

She is quite an indecisive person.. can't decide what to see/do. That is why I posted above for suggestions.

That and she has mobility issues, can't walk too much.. that is why some places/activities are limited.
