Hong Kong 2011- Day 1

28 Nov

Hello there!

Cathy Pacific Airway
We arrived at the airport at around 5am in the morning (it was really early). This time we took Cathy pacific airways for the price of SGD$369. I would say it was pretty worth it and the experience with Cathy pacific was pretty good.

There was a few choices of airlines, including jet star and tiger airways. But their prices comparing to Cathy pacific was around the same, probably ten over dollars differences. We chose Cathy over the other 2 was probably because of the in-flight entertainment & the food we could have on the plane. Take a look at the meals we had on the plane 🙂

Yes there was ice cream-yums!

Regal Airport Hotel
The 4D3N stay in this hotel is all thanks to my travel mate, Germaine! She won a lucky draw for this free stay. On top of the free stay, there was complimentary stuffs which includes an hr of complimentary spa for the 3 nights each, free breakfast and free cocktails (5pm-9pm) daily as well as free shuttle bus services to certain places, for the both of us 🙂 It was all part of regal club lounge member.

The breakfast was on the 2nd highest floor of the hotel with a beautiful sea-view. The range of selection starts from chinese to western. There were porridges, salad, salmon, cereals, pastries, premium tea & coffee and different type of juices. Both of us might have been the youngest that was up at the lounge.

The range of breakfast we get 🙂

I gotten myself Salad with Salmon

The room that we stayed in was a spa suite. In the room itself, there is a king size bed, a jacuzzi as well as a sauna.

I would say, overall the experience was really good. It was definitely a luxurious treat and great stay. To find out more about the room and the regal club, go to

Official Start of Day 1
We took the Shuttle Bus to Ngong Ping from our hotel. It was about a 15mins ride from the hotel.

To head to Lantau Island, look for the directory for directions to the Cable Car that would bring you up to Lantau Island.
(It was somewhere at the 2nd level which you have to walk a long stretch of branded shops before reaching the entrance for the cable car)

The queue was really long. It took us about 15mins or so before we were able to buy the tickets. Lantau Island is famous for their crystal clear cable car hence we decided to buy a round trip of crystal clear cable car as well as the standard one to try out both 😀

That’s the cable car right behind me

Thereafter, we had our high-tea/dinner at federal restaurant which is located in citygate outlet. Here are the food that we ordered,

XO Carrot Cake. I think it’s a little too much for 2 pax as when you keep eating, it gets a lil too sick of it.

红油抄手. We thought it would be similar to Taiwan’s one but it isn’t.

Prawn riceroll. Personally, i feel that the skin is a little too thick for me.

Char Shao Su. I think it’s really nice out of the rest.

Roasted Pigeon or goose I think. We didn’t know that we could pay HK$10 for them to cut for us so in the end we got to cut it ourselves with a scissors.

Xiao long bao. Packed with filling but skin too thick as well.

They have several outlets. The one we went to is as below:

Address:
Shop 255&301
2/F, Citygate Outlets
20 Tat Tung Road, Tung Chung

For me, I would not go back there again for the dim sum. It’s more of a personal preference, who knows you might like it? 🙂

That’s all for day 1. Some of the pictures are of courtesy from Germaine, my travel mate.
