My dad has diabetes and high blood pressure. He travelled to HK with us and took his prescription medicines with him. I know he got a note from his doctor for this. He does the same (getting the note from the GP) when he travels to the US as well; so I didn't think it was that unusual for this trip.

I don't know about allergy medication but if you were allergic to nuts, you'd definitely want to take your epipen with you. Perhaps you could check with the GP about this one and get a note as well?

And I took antihistamines with me as I suffer from hayfever. I can get those over the counter in Australia; so I had them with me. I didn't have a doctor's note and there was no issues at customs.

I had LOTS! We were away for a month and also going to Africa. So I had a month's worth of malaria tablets, asthma preventative medication, anti-biotics in case my sinus infection came back, painkillers and anti-inflammatories (just in case), tummy bug medicine (just in case), plus some vitamins.

My doctor thought a note was highly unnecessary (even for Africa), but offered to do one anyway if I wanted. He said that if it is fairly common medicine it's fine. And he was right, we never had any problems even without a note.

My son is an insulin-dependent diabetic and we didn't have any issues. We always travel with a doctor's letter explaining the syringes, medication etc but we weren't questioned at all in HK.

I had my daughter's allergy meds in my carry on, as well as pain relievers, and no one said anything. I read that we might need a letter to bring stuff to Singapore (where we live now) but hadn't heard that about HK.

We went to HK in March & loved it. We did a harbour boat tour, which was great, went up the mid-level escalators and then took the peak tram to the top. We did both Ladies Street Market & Stanley Market -- Stanley was very pretty, but a very different experience. We loved the hustle & bustle of Ladies Street, and the deals were great!!

We spent 2 days at DL, but we have young kids. We all loved it! I love seeing the similarities & differences between the parks. The Lion King show was great -a little different than the original, still really good - I think overall I liked it better, but I really missed the monkeys We stayed at the DL Hotel - gorgeous, and an easy walk to the park!!
