Q: What do you buy when going on a HK visa trip?

There are no western products where I live in China, so I have a small list of things I want to buy when I go to HK, but am looking for some other ideas.

What are your suggestions?

My wife and I took a trip out to Sai Kung town and then a ferry out to an island.  There were no other people there. It was very peaceful and quiet. Best purchase we made!

Eat lots of Mcdonalds, Subway, Pizza Hut and drink Starbucks  to get your next years fix.  Buy proper beer from 7/11 that you miss  from back home eat sandwiches from there.  Stock up on Chocolate, spirits buy electrical items that are hard to find, clothes from the market that are in a normal size not to small.  Go to the cinema and watch a movie in English, go ice skating, or take a trip to Macu and do the worlds tallest bungee jump or anything that you can never find where you live.   Even go to a book shop and pick out a decent learn Chinese book - found huge selection in Beijing-  Im doing this all now as holiday in Beijing and making the most of it

I love to take my girlfriend to The Spaghetti House in Hong Kong. It's a popular restaurant in Hong Kong and they have some very nice spaghetti there as well as a nice atmosphere for dinner. It might be a bit pricy for some people that are accustomed to mainland china prices, as you can easily spend around $250 HKD on a meal for two.

I'm sorry I didn't buy a new iPhone, HK is supposed to be the cheapest place to buy one. I did go shoe shopping and never found my size there, 12.

A:What is 'formal offer letter'? Only legally accepted employment offer I know is a Contract! ... so, you just don't accept and sign the contract with the lower salary! Email exchanges, verbal discussions and other promises between you and employer aren't legally binding, so legal action isn't recommended. Mainly legal effective thingy is employer's stamped and signed contract! ... and after you ink it, employer can/will use your signed contract to apply for all necessary documents at Chinese governmental agencies as Working permit and all ... It would be better for you to not accept an employment with such an employer, IMO 'cause you'll experience similar troubles by employer won't respect the contract later on. -- icnif77
