Your Questions About Cheap Holidays To Hong Kong

Paul asks…

Need advice on buying a camera? Should I buy in Melbourne or Hong Kong?

I want to buy a digital camera, preferably cheapish. Probably want to spend $50 – $150. I want decent megapixels and zoom (min 8mp). I’m going on holiday in Hong Kong soon, and want to know whether to buy a camera in Melbourne or just wait till I get there? Will it be cheaper in Hong Kong?

Yaz answers:

It would be cheaper in Hong Kong, but… Buying it abroad will possibly mean you’ll need to get a power adapter, and of course unless it comes with a world wide warranty (only top end cameras tend to) then if it goes wrong you won’t be able to chase the supplier for a repair/replacement.

James asks…

Want to go on a cheap shopping holiday for clothes… Hong Kong, Bangkok, Singapore?

Yaz answers:

Go to Bangkok if you don’t mind bargaining. If you’re just planing on going to department stores, go to Hong Kong. They were wearing long tees and latched belts a few years before it became fashionable in the US.

The only way to find items such as this would be on eBay.

They currently sell for around £100 ($190USD)

There is about 400 selling at the moment, you’ll be able to buy one straight away and have it delivered to you in days.

Sandra asks…

Is it cheaper to buy a digital slr in Hong Kong?

I’m thinking about buying a digital slr later this year but am going on holiday to Hong Kong in 2007. Would it be better to wait until then? Is it likely to be much cheaper? What about service / warranty – even if I were to buy one from a named brand, like Canon?

Any advice on price and / or model would be fantastic. I’m thinking Canon, cause I already have two EF lenses from my existing lovable but non-digital slr. Thanks!

Yaz answers:

It depends on where you live…. Go to a reputable store and barter with them, you may be able to find it cheaper on some back street or market – but you have to be weary that its not a fake or had the inner components changed.

You can always check online for a general price guide before you go so your not ripped off, just google search the camera model with hong kong.

I brought a Nikon last year in Kuala Lumpur, I haggled the price by 30% less than what I would have paid back home in the UK. The dealer also stamped the warranty card and told me it was worldwide warranty, which I registered on line back-home.

Canon have the new 400D out which is a good mid range SLR, they have also dropped the price on the 350D. It is a matter of personal opinion but I prefer Nikon, either way go to www.dpreview.com to see the reviews on all the digital cameras out there, retail costs and a comparison guide as well.
