For our accommodation, we stayed at Taisan Guesthouse in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon. Marcus and his siblings did not stay here, but reading other blogs made me decide to book our accommodation here. It’s cheap, accessible to most of the tourist spot in TST and most especially, it is managed by a Filipina so communication was a breeze.
Restaurants and food stalls are abundant in Hong Kong. For our trip, we were able to find a budget friendly Chinese food at Maxim’s which has plenty of branches all around Hong Kong. We also tried the food at Food Republic, a food court inside Citygate Outlet. Notable, we also fell in love with the egg tart serve at KFC.
For cheap souvenir items, you can go to Temple Street Night Market or commonly known as Men’s Night Market situated at Yau Ma Tei, Kowloon. You can also drop by Citygate Outlet before going to Sunny Bay MTR Station (gateway to Disneyland) where you can buy branded items at very reasonable prices.
Aside from the Tram, there are other modes of transportation in Hong Kong:
A cheap way to reach the Mainland from the airport is via the Cityflyer Bus which is also a double decked bus.
Hong Kong has a very organized MTR system that connects the entire island in the country. You can buy an octopus card to gain access to MTR.
Your trip to Hong Kong would not be complete without the Star Ferry ride. Voted as top 10 most exciting ferry rides around the world.
