4D3N Hong Kong - Macau Itinerary with Expenses 2018

Hong Kong is one of the countries that is easy to enter with a Philippine Passport because it doesn't require any Visa. Families with kids usually go here to visit Disneyland but there are also other beautiful attractions you can visit within Hong Kong.

If you're a first time traveller to Hong Kong, here is a summary of what you can do and how much can you spend in Hong Kong.

Important things to bring:

  • Updated Passport
  • Printed Itinerary
  • Printed Plane Tickets (Departure & Return)
  • Printed Hotel Accommodation

These are needed before you can pass the Philippine Immigration office. They usually ask your current company (if employed), what are you going to do in Hong Kong, and when is your scheduled return to the Philippines.

It is up to you to print all necessary documents and simply answer the IO carefully. One question, one answer. Just be honest and don't look scared.

After passing the Immigration Office, you are now ready to explore Hong Kong.

Sample Itinerary

Day 0:
Arrival at Hong Kong International Airport
Take A21 bus to Tsim Sha Tsu - Alight at Middle Rd. (Our hotel is at Chungking Mansion - Las Vegas Guest House; booked in advance via Booking.com)

Day 1: Places to Visit
🌼 Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car
🌼 Ngong Ping Village, Lantau Island, Big Buddha
🌼 Hong Kong Disneyland

We rented a crysyal clear cable car

Big Buddha at Ngong Ping Village

Your Disneyland trip will not be complete without this minnie headband worth 118 HKD

Of course! The Hong Kong Disneyland Resort arc is a mandatory spot to take photos on

Unfortunately, the Sleeping Beauty Castle is under construction during our visit :(

Disney trip will not be complete without taking photos with these couple: Mickey and Minnie Mouse!

Day 2: Central Hong Kong
🌼 Central Pier no.9/no 10
🌼 Montane Mansion (wasn't able to take photos because it's no longer allowed)
🌼 Mong Kok
🌼 Peak Tram + Sky Terrace (Hong Kong Skyline)
🌼 Avenue of Stars / Symphony of Lights

Central Hong Kong as what you've guessed is the Business District of Hong Kong. You can see a very close resemblance to Makati here.

Central Pier no. 10

Beautiful view of the Hong Kong skyline at Sky Terrace (Peak Tram)

Hong Kong skyscrapers - Symphony of Lights (8PM)

On the way to Central Pier

Our Day 2 was quite tiring because of walking. If you want to save money, it's better to walk than take a cab. It is quite expensive to take a cab here. If you want, you can also use Uber but make sure you have Hong Kong sim card to make it work. Their Uber options only allow credit card. Cash option is not yet available.

Day 3: Macau
🌼 St. Paul Ruins
🌼 Senado Square
🌼 Parisian
🌼 Venetian
🌼 Studio City
🌼 Grand Lisboa
🌼 St. Dominic Church
🌼 Giant Panda Pavillion

Very rare chance of Senado Square without people around

Although this is not the real Eiffel Tower in Paris, this one still fulfilled my dream of seeing it very close! Parisian Macau is very beautiful!

Stairway to Parisian Macau

Macau has lots of beautiful places to take photos with. Even their Casinos are Instagram worthy. I didn't post a photo of Venetian Macau because I didn't like how it looks. It was built indoor and for me, Venice Piazza Manila is more beautiful.

Exit point is at Macau International Airport! 😉
