Oh the food cost is kinda like South Korea.

Is 2.5k for 3 pax for 14 days is enough? hmm.gif Cause let's say 1 meal for 1 pax is about RM 30...1 day 3 meals so that means 100 per pax and 300 for 3 pax. Going for 14 days mean 300 x 14 = RM4200?  blink.gif

I do notice the accommodation part is costly in Hong Kong. Most of the places barely fits the bed only  sweat.gif
4200 for food + 1700 for flights + 2500 for accommodation + xx entrance ticket + xx transportation...10k enough? hmm.gif
*
I spend RM3500 for 8 days..I don think 10k is enough.

RM2500 for accomodation, i really don't think its enough..

And depends on what entrance ticket, if u wanna go place like Ocean Park or what, it's gonna cost u another amount of money. ANd don't forget all the miscellaneous items, like ur souvenirs..they cost a lot too.

And from Hong Kong to Macau, the ferry going to cost u extra RM300..

Flight - RM600 return (Cathay Pacific)
Accomodation - RM1400 (6 nights)
Turbojet to Macau - RM180
The Peak (Madame Tussads Wax Museum) - RM160

The remaining RM1300 is all my food, souvenirs, and all the small stuffs like your daily MRT ride, airport transfer etc.

Don't under budget, better to over budget and spend less later on.
Meal at RM100 for 3 pax is not impossible but better to loosen up your spending to make it less restrained.

The regular breakfast that consists of 1 macaroni & soup + eggs + bread + a drink (hot) costs approximately HKD$48-$50.
If you wish to try other things such as Polo Bun, toast etc you'll have to spend extra. Not to forget, there's lunch and dinner that usually costs abit more.
You'll want to eat dimsum too biggrin.gif

All in all, suggestion is to budget RM150-RM200 for food so that you can enjoy without feeling tied up.

And yes accommodation is expensive. I stayed in JJ Hotel but that was in summer, so the price was decent. In peak, it won't be cheap.

Don't lump your calculation; always estimate with per pax cost rather than overall spending. Your xx entrance ticket and transport tak boleh pakai lo. You need to have a good estimation for those. Don't look down on these, I spent few hundred alone on Klook by getting their packages for attractions. And transport ain't cheap depending on where you want to go.

Sufficient if you do it ala backpacker's style. Hostel, cheap food, less visit on paid tourist attractions etc.

I'll be going next year March for 8d7n trip for 2. Budgeted 9k.

So yea i guess your estimate of 10k for 3 for 13d trip is a little too tight.

Rough breakdown as follows:-

Accomodation - 2.5k
Food - 1.8k
Tickets for Entrance(Place of Attraction) - 3k
Macau Ferry Round Trip - 350
Transport & Misc - 1.35k

Since you're going with parents - make it more relaxing for them smile.gif and less tiring.

Some of the things I really enjoyed doing in Hong Kong (and which I will recommend):
- Aqualuna Cruise Ride : this is pricey, but really good. Worth the money in my opinion.
Link: https://www.klook.com/activity/659-aqualuna...sail-hong-kong/

- Lantau Island : it's very pleasant with nice view. Enjoy the Ngong Ping Cable car ride. Opt for the Crystal Cabin for a more exciting experience.
Link: https://www.klook.com/activity/45-ngong-ping-360-hong-kong/

- Horse Race Course : i think it's very nice to experience what locals do. You can check out the race horsing at Happy Valley on Wed night or, Sha Tin Racecourse on Sunday afternoon onwards. I went to the one in Sha Tin and spent more than half a day there. Really an awesome experience icon_idea.gif
It's HKG$5 to enter the race course and you can just tap your Octopus card to get in (or buy ticket at the counter).

Don't worry if you don't know how to bet. There's Customer Service counters and "tours" laugh.gif sign up for it and they will walk you through all the sections and explain about the racecourse. You will also get to see the Horse Parade before the race starts. Lastly, they will teach you how to place bet (it's complicated) and how to read your winnings. Min buy I think it's HKD$10. Bought for fun and won ^____^ no doubt the guys at the Customer Service helped me to buy (they suggest what to bet on).

- Madade Tussauds wax museum was fun as well. Another must go is definitely the Symphony of Lights.

Through Klook, you have a special queue counter and the price for these activities are cheaper/ lower than walk-in rate.

But then I'll spend around 6-7 days in Hong Kong, the rest will be on Macau and Shen Zhen which I think...won't be as expensive? hmm.gif

Btw, 3k for ticket fees???

Go Tsim Sha Tsui and watch the Symphony of Light, enjoy the night view. If you feel like it, take a ride up to Victoria Peak for night view.

Get to Happy Valley on Wednesday night for horse race (very onz). Only $5 for entry, you can use your Octopus card to get in. I think you can go in from 6pm onwards, probably close around 10pm? You can even make some friends with the Pub Crawl: https://www.klook.com/activity/13-pub-crawl-hong-kong/

Shopping at Temple Street at night.
