Journey To Hong Kong: A Week-Long Vacation Pt. 1

The view of Hong Kong Island from Kowloon Peninsula

DISCLAIMER: This blog will have 2 parts. First one will be a narrative about what happened before we went to Hong Kong (like how we planned our trip, how we booked our tickets, etc.). As for the last part, I will be talking about the entire experience of our Hong Kong trip such as the places we visited, food we ate, and the stuff that we bought. Have fun reading!

Last January of 2016, my family and I were thinking of having a vacation somewhere else in Asia. I, being the eldest among my cousins, was in charge to look up airfare promos online. I asked for my aunt’s help and we came across Cebu Pacific Airline’s website. Luckily, we saw a not-so-expensive flight going to Hong Kong and so, we booked it immediately. April 3,2016 is the date of our departure which is the day after my Junior High School Graduation.

Early morning of April 3,2016, I received a news that NAIA Terminal 3, the airport we are heading to, had a power interruption and multiple flights are being cancelled. Being apprehensive about the situation, I hastily called NAIA and asked if our flight will be cancelled (P.S. the departure time of our flight was 7:30 am). Fortunately, the manager said that it is not affected. We went to the airport at around 4:30 am and arrived there by 5:15 am. We paid for the terminal fees, checked in our luggages and went to the waiting area. Everything’s going smoothly not until when we heard that our flight be delayed. It was fine for me at first as I thought it will be only for half an hour. In contrary of what I expected, our flight was delayed for almost 3 hours. We got inside the aircraft at around 10:30 am and we arrived Hong Kong International Airport at exactly 11:46 am. We got out of the airport and rode a bus going to Tsim Sha Tsui. The ride took us an hour and it really made me dizzy. We checked in at Imperial Hotel in Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui. The rooms were nice and it was very affordable especially for big families like us.

During our first day, we stayed at the hotel and took a nap. Evening came when my mom and I decided to take a walk within the vicinity of the hotel. Before we return back, my mom wanted to buy food from McDonald’s but since I don’t like McDonald’s, I left my mom there and walked alone going to our hotel. I planned the next day’s itinerary since we don’t have a tourist guide with us. After doing so, I went to bed and had a good night sleep.

This is all for the first part of the blog. I will be posting the second part on some other day.
