Hongkong is one of the travel destinations of Filipinos who are planning for a trip abroad. A travel time of approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes, it’s just like traveling from Manila to a nearby province like Batangas.

When the realization sinked in that we’ll be going to Hongkong, I felt a bit nervous because it would be our first time to travel on our own (BTW, this is our second time to go to Hongkong, the first one was year 2007, we’re group of 13 and we just go by the flow,where to go,eat,stay…).This one is different because its only the three of us ( a plus because my Sister-in-law is working in Hongkong, if something happened, we have somebody to turned to).

As early as our booking was made (that’s mid-August), I started searching on the net about travelling to HK. I’m very thankful for the Pinoy Exchange Forum, a forum where you can learned and ask anything about HK.

For our accommodation, I booked at Taisan Guesthouse, its one of the recommended guest houses by PEXER’s. They have different branches at Tsim Sha Tsui, HK. The owner Ken, is requiring a deposit of 500 $HK, I’m thankful to SIL for she paid the deposit for us. We stayed in a Taisan’s branch where the caretaker is a Filipina named Yolly. It’s definitely a thumb’s up, nice,clean place for a cheap price, our room is 350 HK$/ night ( I regret not taking pictures of our room for souvenier đŸ˜¦ )
