Buy a Plane Ticket for Yourself, not Your Luggage!
A surprising number of people are unaware of the fact that they can get plane tickets at remarkably discounted rates if they opt for tickets that offer no luggage or allow luggage’s weight at a bare minimum. It’s important to know that the amount airlines charge you for your baggage is exponentially more than what international courier services would take to deliver your parcel to Hong Kong. Apart from the tonnes of money you get to save, you also get rid of the hassle of waiting for your luggage at the airport and can get it delivered at your convenience.
Don’t Enjoy the Vehicle, Enjoy the View
Transport in Hong Kong is nowhere as expensive as it is in the Western Cosmopolitans. A taxi ride is much cheaper than what you’d be paying back home, but our goal is to go cheaper! So forget the closed up taxi ride, and opt for the tram that will take you around the Island of Hong Kong. The top of a tram is open air and allows you to take in the serenity of the city as it gradually makes it way around, truly allowing you to indulge in the view. Here’s the good part, you can enjoy a tram ride at an astoundingly low rate of thirty cents per ride!
Go out Shopping, but Window Shop
Hong Kong is full of amazing malls and markets where you can find great deals. So once you are in the amazing place, make it a point to visit the luxurious malls (the jewellery stores in particular), although the prices at these malls are rather ridiculous, it costs absolutely nothing to window shop! So roam around in the markets and watch the rich culture of the place absorb you. Feeling a little deprived? Buy ice cream from the vendors everywhere on the streets. We assure you, this economical treat it’ll be the best thing you’ll ever taste and will definitely cheer you up!
