Hongkong - Macau 3.5 Days Tour Summary

touring hongkong and macau in 3.5 winter days
december 4-7, 2011 sunday to wednesday

day 4: hongkong solo day tour and departure

here are the some observations and advices  that would be helpful just in case you like to do the same.

1. i estimated to have all the expenses by php20,000. but since i did not pursue skywalk x (php4,132.80) at macau tower, free of 1st night accommodation on my 1st night in hk courtesy of my friends (in exchange of affordable dinner) and having discounted admissions to the peak and ocean park, i saved budget converted hkd to php7,+++. this means the outflow totals only to around php12,+++.

2. to sum-up the details of my expenses: (in php)
cebu pacific roundtrip ticket = 969.92
travel tax and terminal fee = 2,370
total daily hkd expenses = 311 + 510 + 1,085.5 + 234 = 2,140.5hkd = 11,986.8
TOTAL = PHP15,326.72

3. hongkong and macau is the best tourist friendly place among the international destinations I have visited (followed by singapore then south korea). as in there is minimal usage of map whenever you want to do-it-yourself everything, english signboards are everywhere. yup, cost of living and meals are expensive.
