It will depend on your phone. For me (coming from USA), the Unicom SIM is the only compatible one. I think that newer iPhone will work with China Mobile.
Unicom has decent prices, keep in mind if you travel through China often you want a "roaming" SIM and plan as the "local" plan (standard plan) will cost you a lot more when you leave your city. The Roaming plan is more expensive, but the same rate throughout the country.

Can anyone recommend a Mandarin school in Shenzhen? I'm really looking for one that may not be well known and is not too expensive. I've studied Mandarin before and want to come and do an immersion and study, but some of the prices for most schools I found on the internet are too expensive for me.
Any help or advice is appreciated. Thanks!

I do a private tutor 3 times a week, it's inexpensive and focused. Then I language exchange on HelloTalk (bit.ly/1LBCeiL), an awesome app, and also study flashcards.
I recommend studying flashcards until you know at least 500 words before starting a language school. Memrise.com is pretty good, the "Mandarin Reading Basics" course is free.

Does any know of good high up spots for a good view over HK's skyline? I would like to spend some time taking a good few pics.
If anyone happens to have an apartment or an office with a good view, I would be more than happy to invite him/her for a drink :)

If you are not looking for easy-to-reach touristic places, I would recommend you to do some hiking. http://hiking.gov.hk/eng/longtrail/hktrail/hktrail/hktrail05.htm
This is the website with the information of Hong Kong's hiking trail. Personally I would recommend the Stage 5 of Hong Kong Trail if you want a city view. You could google Stage 5 Hong Kong Trail to look for pictures. I randomly found one in other's blogposts like http://hikehongkong.blogspot.hk/2015/04/hong-kong-trail-section-5-6.html.
Be sure to go on a clear day though. I once went there with great visibility and blue sky and the view was superb.

Hi there! Thought to ask the experts for some advice. :)
I'm hoping to buy a new Canon camera while I'm in HK. Any suggestions on reliable stores?
Is there generally room to haggle or can you expect the price to be what it is?
I have my eyes fixed on the 1DX Mk II so hoping to check the availability already before I get there..
Trinity KC , , HKG, 2 months ago
Wow 1Dx you are looking for the top professional model.
Canon has a Show Room in Timesquare. But as Juuso mentioned that you can go to Broadway , Fortress . Certainly, these shops are ok.
DC Ferver & Tin Cheung （天祥）are particular selling cameras and accessories. I think they may offer you a better price.
Other than that don't go to other shops which do not even have a name in particular in Nathern Road and Causeway Bay.
If you are a professional photographer and able to distinguish
Genius vs Fake
Brand new vs second hand
Then, you can go to "星際"shopping mall at Monkok. There are a lots small shops selling camera stuff. But you have be careful shopping there.

Good advice in this thread. Price.com.hk is great. Always pay cash, and bargain 2.5% reduction due to cash. Know which add on items you might want to get an overall discount on buying multiple things.
I recently purchased a Sony A7RII, I scoured two places:
- Sim City: the place for second and new cameras and lenses. A tiny bit of cantonese pleasantries might help, they always seem like they don't want to sell things to me (a gweillo). DC Fever, that Ed mentioned, has a store here too, and they are pretty good.
MTR: Mong Kok, exit E2
- Wanchai Computer Centre: not normally known for many camera stores, but I found a store that had the cheapest price in HK for the body I wanted. It's called Digifi (Shop 126A, on the first floor, do a u-turn from the 1st escalator, and straight ahead at the end of the corridor). Note the accessories were standard prices, so have those price in mind. And they up-sold me a screen protector (but actually I am happy they did, as they fitted in and it works really well).
MTR: Wanchai, exit A4 and turn immediately 90 degrees left once at street level. The 1st escalator is in-front of you.
