HI Andrea Paola Gutierrez!!!!
So dapat talaga complete name? Sana sinama mo na din ang middle name mo hehehe charrot lang gurl!
I will address your questions in a separate entry para naman mabasa din ng iba who’s planning to go to HK in a tight budget. So you’re visiting HK this December…wow, that’s winter season! Don’t worry dahil wala naman snow..but it’s still very cold. Medyo winter din nun when we went there and I really enjoyed it. Since medyo malamig yan, make sure you have:
Boots – for experience lang, OA kasi kung dito ka sa Manila mag bo-boots di ba
Scarf – kung maari, muted colors!
Jackets – jackets with a fur, leather jackets, varsity jackets etc.

San maganda mag-book?
Depende sa budget! Andaming bongga 5star hotel dun, but if you’re travelling in a tight budget, go to MIRADOR MANSION or CHUNGKING MANSION. Andaming hostels dyan and guesthouses. Actually, you can go there directly kahit walang booking online pero mas mainam yun meron. Ideal yun location nyan, Tsim Sha Tsui, kasi accessible sa lahat ng transpo and tourist attractions.
But if you ask me, I personally suggest dun kayo sa MIRADOR MANSION maghanap ng guesthouse. Yun Mirador Mansion is just the name of the building ha. Dun sa loob nun madaming mga hostels. Uunahan na kita, do not expect great service, clean hallways and spacious rooms. BTW, we stayed at Chungking Mansion and I will never everrrrr g0 back to that place again. Traumatic ang elevator, promise!

Lily Garden Guest House
Mas mainam, go to AGODA.COM then search for Mirador Mansion, check mo yun rates ng mga guesthouses then compare.
Sa food naman, para makatipid, my tips are:
- Always eat heavy breakfast either sa McDo or KFC. Surprisingly, mas mura sa fastfood compared dun sa mga local carinderia nila.
- Buy de-litrong mineral water from 711. Whenever you go out, refill-refill na lang. Sooo much cheaper!
- After breakfast, bili kayo ng tinapay sa bakery. Piliin nyo yun siksik, yun parang putok hahaha. Yan ang lunch nyo, at dahil may baon kang water, solb na!
- Tapos hanap kayo ng YOSHINOYA kasi every 2PM, half the price sila haahaha.
Regarding coupons, you can get them usually sa labas lang ng mga restos / fast food, they’re all over. Yan yun shabu-shabu that we ordered from Cafe de Coral. Hinde ko sya masyadong type, mura lang yan and pwedeng pagsaluhan ng 5 tao. Yun chicken curry hinde din masarap. Kulang sa gata!
If you’re planning to go to Disneyland and Ocean Park, check mo dun sa hostel nyo if they have discounted tickets. We bought ours in a travel agency in Worldwide Plaza, as advised by Ate Yen. Daming Filipino stores dun. Mas mura kesa pagbinili mo mismo dun sa Disneyland.
Really looveee HK. My bestfriend and I are planning to go back there, ewan ko kung kelan, pero baka pangarap lang muna. So many nice things to see, kulang ang 8 days eh. Next time when I visit the place, food trip naman ang kakareerin ko! Also, when travelling, make sure may baon kang slippers, salompas, Pau linament etc. Traveling HongKong means walking and traversing looong and winding roads.
Have fun in HK! And balitaan mo ko about your vacation (feeling close hahaha). Hope you’ll find this post helpful, if not naman, keri lang. Thank you for visiting and commenting, Andrea. Take lots of beautiful pictures, try different delicacies, and have lots of fun fun funnn. Babaunin mo ang magagandang memories na yan when you’re older hahahhahaha charrr! Thanks again and take care!
