HiI am planning a trip to hkg arriving on 24 th dec and depart on 31st dec. I will be arriving from singapore with my 3 kids aged 18, 15 and 12. Since this will be our first time to hongkong I want to avoid the inconvenience of independent travel yet prefer free and easy.We are on tight budget about S$500 pax. We want budget hotel with transfers and to visit Disneyland and stay one night there. Also other attractions like ocean park etc. if budget permits we want to see Macau too.Also what to pack or the dec weather? Thanks.

Hong Kong hotels are very expensive during the Christmas holiday season, an average 3 star hotel will cost you more than 200USD per night, since you are on tight budget, I suggest that you should go after middle of Janurary , the hotel will be much cheaper then. Since English is widely used there , so you can go around on your own. we can arrange tour for you, but the price is high considering your budget.

hi, i am planning to come to hongkong in december . could you please suggest some budgeted hotels which cost around INR 20,000 for four nights for two persons.
Hi Neha Bhardwaj. According to your budget, I think Chungking Mansion will be your best choice. Here are many cheap hotels housed in Chungking Mansion in Nathan Road 36 -44, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong. But the service of those hotels may be below your expectation.
