Planning Hong Kong

My husband wants me to make an itinerary for Hong Kong because we are planning to go there sometime this year. There are a lot of resources on the internet but because there’s a lot, it gets tedious. Although, I must say, I like to do these kind of things. I like to plan. So here I am, in the middle of my work shift, Google-ing blogs about their Hong Kong trips.

A factor to consider is our flight details. I cannot book a hotel/ hostel (in our case, it’s gonna be a hostel since we’re in a tight budget with this trip) without the date of our flight. I scored a discounted flight last week with Cebu Pacific, but failed to pay it on time because of my errands with Sophia’s baptism. It was a very good price for tickets, very good schedule, but I had priorities. Now I’m back to waiting for another promo from the said airlines.

Most hostels in Hong Kong, particularly the ones in Chung King Mansions, require a credit card to reserve dates. We don’t have one. I’m not a fan of credit cards, my mother warned me about them, saying they’re demons in disguise. I believe her, for personal reasons. My mother suggested that we just go straight to Chung King Mansions and just find a hotel with a free room. I’m really not up for that because that doesn’t give me a reassurance that we’ll have a roof over our heads for out whole stay in Hong Kong.

Food is also a must-plan. The last time I was in Hong Kong, my family and I had a little fight because we cannot locate a certain Dai Pai Dong (street vendors). We always ended up eating at the Food Republic in the basement of Silvercord Shopping Mall and McDonald’s (which isn’t a bad thing. I liked the food choices in both places). This time, I wanna explore the food locals love to eat.

Based on the blogs I have seen, I think we can get the most out of this trip given I research well enough. I’ll get back to Google and end this post here.
