Travel Time from Disneyland to The Peak
by: Moon


Due to time constraints, we are planning to go to Disneyland and Madame Tussaud's Museum in one day. Since the Disney Fireworks is one of the main attractions of the theme park, we want to witness it as well. Is it possible catch the fireworks and still be able to make it on time for the museum (which closes at 10pm)?

How long is the travelling time from Disney to the Peak?

We will arrive in HK on a Thursday at 9pm and needs to depart on a Saturday at 9pm, too.

We can't think of anything to do on our first night (since it's already late or is it not?)

First day, would be dedicated to Disney and the Peak.

Second day is for Chin Lin Nunnery, Nan Lian Garden, and Avenue of the Stars.

Any comments and suggestions on our itinerary? We would want to visit more spots if it would be possible.

re: Trip to Hk (first tme) budget
by: hKinsider Don

Hello peejay,

P20,000.00 is roughly around HK$3,700. So basically, you have a budget of around HK$600 for each one of you for each day in HK in 3 days. Not including the accommodation, it should be enough.

For HK$600 a day budget: HK$100 for transpo, HK$150 for meals, and then HK$350 for attractions fees and shopping.

Re: Hong Kong in 3D2N
by: HKinsider Don

Personally, based on experience every time I visit HK. A 1K HKD a day per person is quite a good budget for a foreigner in Hong Kong. That would include basically on transpo, meals, attractions fee, and light shopping.

by: Carlo

30k PHp is not enough for the 2 of you if your itinerary includes the disney land and ocean park and some theme parks. better, you enjoy the scenery. its for free anyway. stay somewhere in Kowloon most of the attraction is in there... I'll be there too on Feb 28- march 2 2012

Re: 3 days 2 nights stay in HK without hotel budget
by: HKinsider Don

Here are some of the price figures you need to know before going to Hong Kong for your budget planning.

* HK Disneyland one-day ticket, HK$ 350.

* Dining at HK Disneyland. Inside the park, you can have a lot of choice from a snacks to a full meal but the prices are quite high that ranges from HK$60 to HK$150 / meal / person.

* Hong Kong average food price is about HK$30 that you can easily find on fast food restaurants like KFC or McDonald. So it's about HK$300 meal budget for 3 days.

* Transportation around Hong Kong for 3 days using octopus card per person.
I suggest you buy an Airport Express Travel Pass - 1 Airport Express Ride ticket, HK$220. This ticket package will give you 1 Airport Express single journey plus 3 consecutive days of unlimited travel on MTR, Light Rail and MTR Bus * (except Airport Express, East Rail Line First Class, Lo Wu and Lok Ma Chau MTR stations). Also with HK$50 refundable deposit.

* Hong Kong to Macau economy class Ferry ticket is HK$134.

* Macau to Hong Kong economy class Ferry ticket is HK$142.

Macau and Hong Kong transportations and food prices are basically the same.

* Going for HK Shopping.

You must try the famous Street Markets. In there, you can easily find a good t-shirt with price like 3pcs for HK$100.

With the data and figures above, I'm sure you can compute how much budget you need for your coming trip to Hong Kong.

Hope this help and good luck on your HK trip!

Re: How much budget do I need going to Hong Kong?

Here's my itinerary suggestion to maximized your 2-days stay in Hong Kong.

Accommodation: Stay at any affordable hostel at Tsim Sha Tsui area like the Mirador Mansion as we already mentioned (HK$500 approx for 2-nights stay).

Day 1: Hong Kong Disneyland or Ocean Park. But personally, we recommend Ocean Park.

* The hotel check-in time is usually at 2:00 pm and check-out time at 12:00 noon on the following day. Considering that you arrive on 27 Jun '11, Monday morning at around 11am at the hotel, they may allow you to have an early check-in if the rooms are available otherwise you can leave the bags at the concierge and wait until the room is ready. With this scenario, there could be too much waste of your day-time just for waiting.

* If you can manage to travel with less luggage then that's really good and that's what we recommend. With this scenario, you can be able to go straight to either Disneyland or Ocean Park from the airport (HKIA).

* Leave the park at around 3:30 pm and proceed to Tsim Sha Tsui to check-in. This will give you enough time to relax in your hotel a little bit and prepare for an early dinner. Don't worry, nearby you can easily find various restaurants and fast foods like McDonald.

* Proceed to the Tsim Sha Tsui promenade or Victoria harbour by a short walk from your hotel and be sure to get there before 7:00 pm. You will find here the Avenue of Stars (free admission) and also, it is the good place to watch the spectacular nightly show "The Symphony of Lights" (free admission).

Day 2: Star Ferry, The Peak, and Street Markets shopping.

* Close to the Avenue of Stars you can find the Tsim Sha Tsui Star Ferry Terminal. Take the Star Ferry to Central Ferry Terminal, 8 minutes & HK$2.5.

* Close to the Central Ferry Terminal you can find the Central Ferry Pier Bus Terminus, take the bus no. 15C to the Peak Tram, about 10 minutes @ HK$4.2. Then take the breathtaking 7 minutes tram ride up to the Peak.

Here you can see a travel route map in getting to the Peak from Tsim Sha Tsui Ferry Terminal.

* Leave the Peak around 4:00pm and proceed to Kowloon area back to Ferry or by MTR trains from Central to Mong Kok (12 minutes HK$9.7) for you street market shopping.

Hope this help in planning your HK trip!

I need help on our itinerary during our stay there. Our estimated time of arrival on June 27, 2011 is 0900H and our departure is on June 29,2011 at 0800H.

Can you help me plan to must see places there in Hong Kong and please include on how to get there (including map), time of travel and how much it will cost. I need an itinerary for 2 days. Thanks.

Re: How much budget do I need going to Hong Kong?

Our hostel recommendation along Tsim Sha Tsui area is the Mirador Mansion. Inside on that building, it is comprised with several hostels that surely have something that suite your preferences.

For good shopping places in your case, you should go to our recommended Street Markets. There you can find good items with cheap prices just don't forget to bargain. Also, along with these streets you'll find good cheap restaurants.

For a free sightseeing, go to the Victoria Harbour, Avenue of Stars and you'll also experience the nightly show - symphony of light. From there, you will know why Hong Kong is known as the City of Life!

Travel-wise, it is highly recommended to get an octopus card when you travel around the Hong Kong. Not only that it will save lot of time when you take the MTR trains, bus or pay some stores but also, it will give you some discount on fares. Don't worry, you can get the remaining value or request for a refund on your octopus card prior to your departure.

Note: the bold and blue color fonts stands for major tourist attractions, their links are in the bottom of this page. Please follow those links to read more information about it, specially on how to get there.

how much budget do i need to go to hong kong?
by: Anne

Any recommendations on cheap hotel or hostels along Tsim Sha Tsui that offers a safe,relaxing and very accommodating environment? (since we will be spending much of our time outside).

What places would you recommend for us to visit during our stay there for 3D2N? We're on a tight budget that's why I really want to know the cheapest place that we can stay during our trip, restaurants that offers good food but offers low price and places that we can visit that were not going to spend too much money for that. Is it practical to buy octopus card when we get there?

Re: How much budget do I need going to Hong Kong?

Actually, there's nothing much to worry about even if it is your first time in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong is not only a very safe place to travel but also their public transportation is very efficient most specially the MTR trains.

You can easily find and get a budget hotel in Hong Kong or Hostel that are very affordable. Please see here for more details and for our recommendations.

Have a safe trip and enjoy your stay in the "City of Life"!
