Travel Checklist

Before we go on with the actual itinerary, here is a list of things that you might need to prepare and bring for a hassle-free trip.

Passport — Must not expire within the next 6 months on arrival in Hong Kong

Hong Kong Visa (if applicable) — This is very important to think about when planning any trip abroad. Luckily, tourists from over 160 countries (including the Philippines) do not need a visa to enter Hong Kong.



Book your room as soon as you know you are going because prices rarely go down the closer you are to your trip. Take advantage of options that offer instant confirmation and free cancellation if you are not yet sure with your travel plans right now.

A suggestion I can offer is LONDON GUEST HOUSE at MIRADOR MANSION along Tsim Sha Tsui.

The place is very affordable and near to shopping areas and malls. It may be small but it is clean and people are very accommodating.

You may book via Agoda and find the best deals for you and your group.
