Planning my Hong Kong trip

Sunday, August 14, 2011

I booked my Hong Kong trip last May through Cebu Pacific's seat sale. I thought since I'm in such a great mood to travel this year, why not go for a third one? My trip to Kota Kinabalu was kind of a drag really (great beaches but that's about it) so I thought Hong Kong could make up for that trip. I'm hoping for more great memories like my Seoul trip!

HK isn't cheap. Repeat: HK isn't cheap. I've been having trouble looking for cheap accommodations because most of what I've seen on Agoda so far are in the US$100 range. That's definitely outside my budget. Thanks to a couple of blogs and some recommendations from friends, I found two hotels which are MUCH cheaper than those I've seen online. I'm just waiting for their confirmation for my reservation.

I think HK would not be complete without a trip to some of the most famous places there. They're definitely included in my itinerary:

- HK Disneyland
-Ocean Park
- Avenue of the Stars
- Victoria Peak
- Big Buddha
- Orchard road
- Temple street

I've also been busy looking at my budget for the trip:

Hotel  - Php 4923.64 / HK$900
Ocean park - Php 1203.56 / HK$220
Disneyland - Php 2024.16 / HK$370
Octopus card  - Php1641.21 / HK$300
food budget - Php 3282.43 / HK$600 (3 nights)

If I just stick to this budget, I think I'll be alright. I won't have to come back a poor man. Rule of thumb: go for cheap foods! Absolutely no fastfood binging.

I'm gonna go back to this list everyday in HK to make sure I stay within my budget.
