Hong Kong might be a closely-packed maze with alleyways and undulating roads, but it is a fairly easy city to navigate, with an extensive network of trains (called MTRs) and mini buses.
But be warned, you may need some extra fortitude to ride around on the sometimes reckless but always speedy mini buses in the city.
And what about staying connected to your loved ones back home?
Here are some tips to help you out:
Budget flights may seem less luxurious as they exclude amenities such as seat selection and extra baggage (for shopping, what else).
But what you save on flights could probably allow you an additional night stay in Hong Kong.
Low-cost carriers like Jetstar and Scoot offer tickets that are under $500 (return), while full service airlines cost go up to $860 or more.
Hong Kong’s flag carrier Cathay Pacific offers three- to four-star hotel and flights packages from $660 onwards. Some stays come with complimentary breakfast, so do choose the hotel carefully for the best deals!
Certain airlines hand out special deals so keep your eyes open for promotional fares that can dip even lower than what is offered to you! Low-cost carriers have flash sales on certain days of the week, Scoot’s deals are on every Tuesday while Jetstar’s deals are from 8am to 11pm every friday.
