Since I'll have a 1.5 year old, and there is no eruv, it could be a challenge making it to the meal.

If you're looking to save money there's also the Garden View nextdoor to chabad of HKI ;)
Thanks, I'll look into it. (If I could handle the Venice chabad for shavuos, I'm sure I'll manage just fine over here :) )

The shliach is an American and not a meshichist.
It's the hotel I winked for. But if you want cheap it is cheap.

Looks like I might have a 1 night transit in HKG on my way from DPS to TLV.
I'll be w/ 3 small kids, and am hoping to use my Priority Club free night award that comes w/ renewing my PC card.
Any advice which property to stay in? Preferably, I'd like to be somewhat close to kosher food, but it's not a must.

I see they have 3 Intercontinental locations.

Stamford IC is right next to Kehilat Zion davening and restaurant

Obviously HK Island is the center of things, so Id stay at that IC

The W hotel is fantastic, though expensive.
It has an airport express station underneath it, so you can go nonstop from HKG to the W. The hotel will send a porter to bring your bags down and you can check them in at the airport express station underneath the W.

Also a great rooftop infinity pool/hot tub the kids will love.

it's 2 diff places and 2 diff views. I didn't do the cable carts because of time (or I think it was out of service) buy the peak is pretty cool. I think forsure the peak.

Great.

Unfortunately, the Macau water show is only from Thurs-Mon so we'll probably just do the AJ hacket tower.

How long does it take to get from HKI to Macau?

Can it be done in the morning with enough time to catch a 3pm flight to CNX?
