went to HK end of last month. SQ is very ex. about $780 for 2 way. You can try to get Cathay or China Airlines for much less. Probably around 400-500 plus.
My colleague in HK advise says that it is cheaper to book hotel thru tour agency than walk-in. Even when I extended my stay over there, he booked me a room thru a local agency there.
Expect to pay about between $90-120. I paid HK490-530 per night.

i think i saw an ad a few days back..
Malaysian Airline is charging something like $388 for the air ticket..
check out their website or travel agency.
The other airlines that's offering cheap HK air tickets are China Airline and Garuda.

I don't think Cathay is that cheap. Is $780 including accommodation for SQ? I took United Airlines to HK this Jan. Around $770 including 5 days of accommodation. Prices might vary now I think.

for hotels, you could either go through a tour agency or book online. you could get 3 star lodgings for less than $100 a night at the Yau Ma Tei region. if you want harbour view, the price goes up substantially (~$200 a night).

About the weather in Hong Kong, now it is almost the end of their winter and beginning of their spring, there is *a lot of* moisture around, very humid and damp. Sometimes you can feel the water droplets on the walls/doors/floors, so take care of your photo equipment.

OT: $380 is on Northwest, but the promotion is over. Malaysian airlines is $488 + $30 (dunno wat) + $90 (airport tax) so total adds up to $608.
