Buss to airport leaves in 40 minutes. Excited? Yup. Nervous? Getting there. Panicking? Most likely will happen at the airport.
This will be really awesome tip! I am so happy to see my friend after several months and see totally different culture. And I am thrilled that I get to meet Evie and Simon again on my way back at London! Yes, be jealous. Be really jealous. :P
And Saturday I’ll be there :) My friend promised that on Sunday we will visit Tai Po Kau Nature Reserve (even though the Lonely Planet guide says that we should avoid the place on Sunday when it’s crowed. But it’s the only day that suits my friend). That will be so great! Other than that, I don’t have much plans other than just see the city and shop and eat well :D I have only 5,5 days there so it will be busy and long days if I want to take most of my time there.
I got myself insurance, credit card + new bank account and hostel. Now there just left to change money, buy stuff for my friends, charge batteries to my camera, find out what buss to take to airport and pack my stuff.
So I booked the hostel last weekend. It will be Dragon Hostel in Mong Kok. My friend lives in Sha Tin so that was more convenient for her than Causeway Bay. And more friendly to my wallet also :D I guess all the hostels are the same: really small rooms and full of annoying tourists.
Should I pay a little extra to stay in hotel or just take the cheapest hostel? The less money I spend in accommodation the more money I have to use for shoes etc. Which doesn’t sound too bad…If I take hostel, I will take that from Causeway Bay. I think I should stay away from the Chungking mansion or Mirador mansion.
I borrowed myself some guide books. Eh, I know that it’s still almost 2 months for my trip, but hey, I need to be prepared :P Hmm…well I guess at some point I should get that accommodation for me..
I’ll be there for 5,5 days. My friends are studying there for semester, so I have some guides with me, but I’ll be travelling alone from Finland which quite intimidates me :/ But I am sure that it will be awesome experience. And totally the craziest thing I have done :D I just hope I won’t get lost or robbed or anything :P
I need to book myself accommodation and get some guide books and collect some tips what to see. So if anyone has visited/lives there, what I shouldn’t miss?
