By HelgaChrist - January 14, 2017

Hello! welcome to my blog. Because I'm a student and I pay my holiday by myself so I find 'student budget' depend on my trip to HK-Macau-Shenzhen 7days 6night only for USD300 (included Hostel, Hotel, Local Transport, and Meals)




DAY 1

12.50 Go to our hostel  ‘Kowloon New Hostel’ in Tsim Sha Tsui area . We already booked the hostel about 3 months before the date. For 5 days & 4 nights I got the price HKD750 for 2 people.But when we arrived we "upgraded" to bigger room and added to other facilities (TV, Toilet, Shower, Hair dryer, Cleaning service everyday, Free drinking water, AC). So for 5days 4nights I paid HKD 1020 for 2 person (deposit HKD300) Total HKD510 /person. I recommend this hostel if you want cheap hostel and great facilities. Don't forget to bring your own water bottle.

This is magic card you can use for Bus, MTR, 7eleven, etc (HKD 150 , balance HKD100 and deposit 50 you can refund when you will get back and administration refund fee HKD). So the cheapest way from Airport to my hostel is go by Airport Bus A21 to Tsim Tsa Tsui HKD33 by octopus).
