Blog #002 WHAT TO DO ON 7 HOURS LAYOVER (HONGKONG)

It’s vacation time again!! going to our home country Philippines (Pilipinas kong Mahal), Me & my sister decided to booked our flight thru Cathay Pacific Airlines from Dubai- Manila, before our flight I’ve been reading & watching lots of blogs for our trip which helps a lot for our itinerary so we can maximize our stay. There is no visa requirements for Filipino going to Hongkong for vacation. Filipino Tourist in Hongkong only need a valid passport to enter and will not be required to go through a visa application process.

Dubai- Hongkong 10:55pm-10:35am Flight duration 7h 40m

Our flight to Hongkong arrive at 10:35am and flight back to Manila 05:40pm so we have 6- hours for our tour excluding time we spend at immigration.  About 30 minutes at the airport we already have an onward boarding pass to our next destination and immigration procedures were very fast and efficient.

It’s gala time!!!!! From Airport -we took a MTR Airport Express Train going to Hongkong Station for 1 day trip same day return  Airport- Hongkong, would cost (100 HKD).

MONG KOK

Once you arrive in Mong Kok it feels like your in Divisoria & Binondo in the Philippines , because there’s lots of shops, souvenirs, street foods, clothes, bags and etc. If your a tourist don’t forget to haggle for cheap price. I bought a t-shirt for 50HKD for 3 pieces.The Sneaker’s Market is also nearby they said you can buy a shoes on a cheap price, but for me its expensive here. Its must cheaper in DUBAI!!!!

Mong kok Streetfoods be like!!!

We want to explore more but our time is limited, we need to catch our flight going to Manila. From peak tram, we took a bus going to Central Station, from Central Station-Hong kong Station – Airport Express. We got back to Airport on time.

It was short but fun!!!!! A day of fun field adventure with my sister. Going to different place for the first time make my heart flutters. I must say Hong kong is a nice place to visit. Will come back here soon…
