A Heritage Walk, Macau

If Hong Kong is previously under the British colony, Macau was a former Portuguese colony. The European influence is still visible in both countries.

Senado Square – part of Historic Centre of Macau where the mix of Asian and European art and culture can be found.

Macau

We also used Marcus Blog for this trip, and like what Marcus wrote, you can actually tour Macau for FREE, how?

You can hop on and off a bus going to a specific hotel or place at the Casino Bus Terminal. Most of the casinos have their own shuttle that you can ride for free.

To fill your tummy, don’t miss the stretch of stalls that offer free food taste on your way to the ruins of St. Paul. Some casinos also have free chips and drinks for players.

This Special Administrative Region of China is definitely a budget friendly place :)

Accommodation, Food, Shopping and Transportation in Hong Kong

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.
