4D3N Hong Kong Itinerary (4)

LAST UPDATED: FEBRUARY 07, 2017

As promised, I would be sharing with you my 4D3N Hong Kong Itinerary and how we managed to keep it under PHP20,000. I also promise I won’t be talking about sharing bathrooms with strangers or eating the cheapest food – nothing wrong with that, but I’m really maarte especially when it comes to sharing bathrooms! This is your mid-level DIY travel itinerary/guide to Hong Kong with tips and details on how to get from one place to another, exactly how much things cost, etc.

We travelled around Hong Kong from February 20-23, 2016; it was still considered winter season and I loved it! Temperature was averaging on 13 degrees Celsius on our entire trip. I love experiencing this weather while they’re not much tourists in the city. I swear I didn’t line up for anything more than ten minutes for both Disneyland and Ocean Park – except for the photos with the mascots.

Where to Stay in Hong Kong: Cosmic Guest House

For a small country with a population of 7 million, space is an issue in Hong Kong. I’ve read reviews after reviews saying that the hostel rooms in Hong Kong are really just tight enough to fit in a bed and if you’re lucky enough, you and your roommates can stand at the same time in the small space. That’s most likely the scenarios for travelers unless they want to cash out the big bucks to spend a night in a hotel room.

Last day in Hong Kong! Time flies when you’re having fun (and away from any responsibilities like work). I have to admit that I don’t want to leave the place. I ended up loving Hong Kong’s quirks and was already looking forward to my next visit.

We only had one destination for the day (Lantau Island) so it was pretty chill but we were packed and ready to go by 7 AM. The staff at the hostel advised us to just leave our baggage at our lockers near our destination since it’s only minutes away from the airport rather than circling back to the hostel just to pick it up. Really good advice! We might have missed our flight if we circled back to the hostel.

Photo Diary: Hong Kong Disneyland

The Disney princess in me was so elated once we arrived at Hong Kong Disneyland. I felt like I was going to cry because I’ve never actually thought I’ll be able to visit this place when I was a kid. It’s so amazing to see the fruits of my hard work (and my parents’) as I stepped foot on the place. I really felt like the happiest girl on Earth. Okay, enough drama, but I felt like I accomplished something back there.

Now we’re back to my Hong Kong series! Knowing that our itinerary for the third day is packed, you’d think we’d wake up early. Nope, it didn’t happen. We were up by 6:00 AM and after singing a quick ‘Happy Birthday’ song to Sydney with our morning voices, we dozed off again. I think it’s because we got our fill of Ocean Park in half a day that we thought it’ll only take that long to roam Disneyland – which is also included on our third day itinerary. Add that to the fact that we were tired and our feet were cursing us out, we overslept. First wrong decision of the day.
