Need to double check on VISA for Indonesia., but if Visa is needed get it immediately when you get to HK. For USA the cost was about 125USD and I had it done by a travel agent on Nathan Road. the company I use is shoestring travel Ltd off of Nathan road, they have another big company at the same location with a big red star. tele #2723 2306....there are 3-5 day, 1-2 days, 24 hrs, pay extra, but must fill out forms and they take pictures before noon and then you can pick-up by five or six pm. Go early!

Fondest memory: different
Fondest memory: We intend to drink that night but unfortunately my kids love to walk so instead we walk,until we reach Shuiwan Road Bar Street the it is about 300 meters in length, with a European style and Chinese modern garden sights. Various bars, pubs, cafes and nightclubs along both sides of the street have their respective characteristics, showing different scenes and themes. This place is full of light during night.
Haha, as no one answers my questions, I will answer them myself since I went there during the CNY 2008 and returned in one piece! The food shops and restaurants are still open in Wanzai area and also other areas. We booked for dinner at Popoko Hotel restaurant. Although it was sumptuous, we expected the food to be better since it was the eve of CNY and we were celebrating. Maybe next time we will go to Wanzai for the food during the eve. The crowd at Gongbei border Gate seems to be quite thin and we cleared the border within half an hour! Taxi-drivers, however, bargain for higher prices during the eve and the 1st day of CNY. We give, as it is the season of giving. Cheers to all.
Fondest memory: Enjoy the spa at Ocean Spring Ocean Resort. When tired out, consume the free flow of drinks and food at the restaurant and relax at the aircon room facing the setting sun. Then ask for a masseuse to rub away the tiredness.... When it is time to go, take the bus to the theatre next door to enjoy the musical show. Such is life. Enjoy!
The road along the ocean right into Zhuhai ...
You can find an amazing statue of a beautiful lady in the ocean on a rock ...
And some legend has been told about her, I have to find out about, I do love legends ...
Fondest memory: Not my best memory ...
My batteries went down and I could not one single picture of this wonderful Fishing Lady ...
So I decided the first next time in Zhuhai will be right onto the symbol statue of Zhuhai
the beautiful Fishing Lady
Favorite thing: If you're traveling from Macau and don't have a Chinese visa, you can get a special 3-day visa at Gongbei Immigration for only HKD150. Processing time is about 10-15 minutes. The deal about this visa is that you must enter and exit Gongbei port only and it is limited for 3 days and in Zhuhai only. You can get this visa at the second floor of the immigration building.
It is world-wide well-known that China is considered the homeland of the product of tea, where the Chinese 'drinking tea daily. The Chinese made a way of life of it and do believe tea is a healthy drink in a lot of ways, like for a psychological health, in a philosophical way, for good social manners and, rich in various vitamines. So when smoking, keep this in mind ...
Fondest memory: I agree, loving tea at any moment of the day. Tea is tasting like ..., smelling like ... and not just a ordinary beverage. I always enjoy reading about the Chinese tea legends and sagas, named "Chao Dao", even accepted by Japan who took over the Chinese art of making tea. So ofcourse I got myself my Chinese green tea; a famous product you can buy literally eanywhere!
They don't speak English, but trust me, they know when you are asking for the price. Make sure though you have a calculator with you (your cellphone could be useful this time) for you to haggle with the price.
Usually, the shop owners have their calculators always ready for enthusiastic shoppers.
If you come over the border from Macau, just outside the customs building is an underground mall. Head down the escalator and head kind of straight across the atrium towards the left. There is a bookstore in that general direction where you can get a map of Zhuhai which has the bus routes in it for really cheap.
Fondest memory: Getting on the wrong bus since I could not read Chinese and ending up in the middle of a farming community where the bus route deadended.
