I badly miss Hong Kong!! And because of that, I finally decided to upload our first day in Hong Kong last March 2013. Pardon me for the lack of posts as I was just really very busy with school, work and other stuff, I’ll try to update this blog more often, but I really can’t promise.
We purchased our roundtrip ticket from Cebu Pacific Air 4 months in advance, and we only paid around P4,500 for the roundtrip fare.
We left Manila at 5:40 am and arrived Hong Kong International Airport around 7:30 am. I was really very excited with this trip because it was actually my first out of e country trip with my family. From the airport, we rode A21 bus that would bring us to Taisan Guesthouse in Burlington Branch (the guesthouse is located on the 13th stop). The fare was around HKD29 per person, I suggest you purchase octopus tickets in the airport for convenience, since you could use it in MTRs and BUS rides.
Upon checking in our baggages, we decided to have our breakfast first in Yoshinoya before we go to Ngong Ping 360.
After the sumptuous meal, we were all so energized and we all decided that it was finally time to go to Ngong Ping Village and ride the Cable Car. We rode the MTR going to the Tung Chung station where the Cable Car was located. Aside from the Cable Car, the River City Outlet was also located in this area.
The line to the Cable Car that would take us to Ngong Ping Village was very long. I think it took us almost an hour of waiting, however the wait was worth it, the view from the cable car was very breathtaking!!
After touring around the village we all decided it was time to leave and eat. We were all very tired and we did not even have much sleep the night before. We all wanted to take some rest since we all needed energy for the next three days. We had dinner at Food Republic located in the River City Gate Outlets.
