HongKong & Macau Expense

Standard

I just got back from my trip to HongKong and Macau, as always I aim to enjoy traveling without breaking my pockets. I just want to show you that it’s OK to travel as long as you do not over budget and spend wisely. One of the biggest allotment in your budget is your accommodation, just a tip, if you want to save a lot for accommodation, you don’t need to stay on a 5-star hotel especially if you’ll always be outside wandering the city, a decent place will do. Pick a place that is convenient to most tourist spots and be prepared to do a lot of walking. This way you’ll save money from taking bus, train or even taxi.

Here’s my breakdown. I traveled with a friend and we split the expenses between the two of us.

Malaysia: Sample Itinerary and Expenses

Standard

Here is our actual itinerary for Malaysia which is limited to Kuala Lumpur only. Why? Due to limited time and we don’t have interest on the other tourist spots in Malacca and Johor Bahru, but still hoping to visit other parts of Malaysia (someday 😀 ). So here are the places that we explored in Kuala Lumpur, no pressure and just full experience of what Kuala Lumpur has to offer. 🙂 🙂 🙂

Actual Itinerary

We made sure that we don’t commit the same mistake that we did on our last trip. Everything went smooth and according to our plan. The whole trip is “as always” tiring but I have gain new memories and experience that I will keep for a lifetime. Til my next trip 😀 😀 😀

Below is the breakdown of our expense for the 4-day stay in Malaysia we were lucky that our hotel accommodation is sponsored by a friend. We stayed at Grand Hyatt Hotel for 3-days/2 nights with breakfast and access to the hotel facilities (how lucky is that! 😀 😀 :D). Our Malaysia trip wasn’t on my itinerary of the countries to visit this year, but since we got a FREE accommodation, we took the opportunity to visit Malaysia, we just make sure that we don’t overboard with our budget. Our expense doesn’t include the airfare ticket.
