Hong Kong and Macau
January 18-21, 2014
I just got back from a month-long vacation but this escapade was already planned out prior so, I just mustered all my courage to ask another permission from my boss and luckily, my filed leaves were approved! Ahhh, my workmates were pretty much jealous. Hah!
Most of my friends I'm with in this vacation, travels outside the country for the first time and I'm happy to be part of their memorable experience!
HONG KONG. We stayed at Regal Kowloon Hotel and the rooms were pretty much spacious and good enough to accommodate us. Our itinerary was a bit hectic so, we just settled in for a while and went out as soon as we get some breather to begin our DIY tour =D
Around the City: Walk around the city for shops, restaurants, and food stores. You may find jewelry stores and money exchange shops along the road.
Avenue of the Stars: Stroll along the Avenue of the stars or just sit on one of the benches and relax while enjoying Victoria Harbour.
Madam Tussauds: Boy, they look REAL!!! there's a fee for a picture-taking with their famous star, Jackie Chan tho'.
Ngong Ping 360: You may choose between a standard or crystal view (like that of a glass-bottom boat) cable car. It will take several minutes to get there and must take about a hundred steps to reach the Buddha.
Disneyland: Who doesn't enjoy Mickey and Friends?! Everybody loves this theme park and one should meet the famous mouse in their lifetime. We will definitely come back and stay longer for rides and shows!
MACAU. The main reason why people visit this city is to gamble, with Casinos everywhere. This is also why it's called "the Las Vegas of Asia". But also, there are some tourist spots that people go to like the St. Paul Church ruins and the Grand Canal inside Venetian Hotel. To cross and reach Macau from HK, one should take a TurboJet ferry in an hour and a half ride. Bring a plastic bag if you have motion sickness! =P
