Things to do in Hongkong

Hongkong is on my bucket list and I was happy that I finally ticked it off on my list. Whenever there’s international seat sale, I always check Hongkong but I wasn’t lucky in booking a flight. It took me years before I was able to score a cheap fare during P1 seat sale and would you believe it was only P2000+ for 3 persons. One way fare only because I book another flight from Macau so I could save time and ferry fare.

I'm sharing you our Hongkong itinerary when we went there last November 2012, I’ve revised it so many times because of the weather but still we enjoyed our stay especially in Hongkong Disneyland. They say one week is not enough to enjoy Hongkong but since we want to do Hongkong and Macau in one trip, I need to choose the tourist spots that we’re going to visit in four days.

Upon Arrival in HKIA, we immediately went to Yiu Fai Guesthouse to check-in our luggage before starting our tour. 

Day 1

We visited 1881 Heritage, Clock Tower and Avenue of Stars which are all walking distance from TST area.

Then we rode the Peak Tram to reach The Peak”. My husband was not interested in Madame Tussauds so we did not buy package ticket just a roundtrip Peak Tram ticket.

Day 2

We woke up early on our second day because we will visit Chi Lin Nunnery and Nan Lian Garden 

After that, we proceeded to Ngong Ping Village.

Shopping is not included in our itinerary but we did a quick visit in CityGate Outlet because we need to buy some clothes. We need warmers to survive the coldness of Hongkong weather.

Day 3 and 4

From Yiu Fai Guesthouse we transferred to Disney’s Hollywood Hotel for our next accommodation. We will spend our two remaining days in Hongkong Disneyland 

We let go the Ocean Park because we’re more interested in Hongkong Disneyland and my son really adores Mickey Mouse.


If you are on a budget you can eat at Chef Mickey’s Restaurant for breakfast but if you want to meet and greet experience with Disney characters, book your breakfast in Enchanted Garden.

If you are looking for affordable fastfood in Hongkong, you can try Cafe de Coral, they have branches everywhere.

Now I know why people always go back to Hongkong, if only I have the budget, I will go back again. #bitin ang 4 days.
