Macau At A Glance!

As I mentioned in my previous post, my first reason to visit Hong Kong on my 28th birthday was because I wanted to visit Macau. The only place that I really wanted to go was the ruins of St. Paul, because I saw a lot of my friends visiting Macau and taking a picture in front of the remains of the cathedral and despite the fact I’ve been to the similar building in Melaka, I just wanted to go there.

For this Hong Kong trip, I spoke to some people through Couchsurfing and despite there were some other travelers that I spoke to on the website, I only managed to meet another solo female traveler from Singapore called Fiza. After trying to fix our Hongkong-Macau itinerary here and there, we agree to travel together in Macau.

Review: Days Hotel – Hong Kong

When I decided to go to Hong Kong for my birthday trip, Cata asked me why I chose Hong Kong in the first place. The question was understandable as I couldn’t stop complaining about how boring and expensive everything was in Singapore when I was around. So according to Cata, “Why Hong Kong? It’s only like more Chinese Singapore!”

My main reason to choose Hong Kong is actually to visit Macao, and by the time I tried to find a cheap accommodation in the city, I had a hard time pretty much like I did in Singapore. The good thing is, there are so many options in terms of accommodation, from some cheap dodgy hotels to even child-friendly hotels in Hongkong… You could get them all!

To be fair, the night rate for a hotel in Hong Kong is pretty much better than in Singapore. With HKD 210 (equal to around SGD 38), I could get a single room in the location that is quite convenient. For the same reason, I decided to book a room at Days Hotel in Chung King Mansion.

Hong Kong: Go Horse Racing in Happy Valley Clubhouse!

Recently, I visited Hong Kong for my birthday trip. I had planned the trip since last year and I chose Hong Kong for some reason.

Since my birthday falls in February, I know that it is going to be in the winter in some places. And being a woman with a cold heart with a hot body myself (lol), I chose Hong Kong because living in a tropical place, I just wanted to take a break from the usual humidity in Jakarta and be in somewhere cold to celebrate my birthday.

Besides, it seems like there are a lot of things to do in Hong Kong from shopping, Disneyland, to even get in touch with nature through hiking Lion Rock!
