Hong Kong Itinerary: What To Do In 3 Days

When an invitation by Cathay Pacific airlines landed in my inbox to experience and explore Hong Kong with them I knew what was next: a few sleepless nights of obsessive research and excitement. More research though, as I had to create my own itinerary and go about my holiday in Hong Kong as I find it fancy. With only five days in hand, to travel this attraction loaded-city (despite its small size, Hong Kong can be overwhelming) I jam-packed my days with as much as possible. I planned on trying the strange and popular food, going on hikes, exploring street markets and doing whatever else was suggested by other travel blogs out there, keeping in mind the most important thing: a limited time of 5 days, and rush! So out of those 5-day dedicated strolling in Hong Kong, I’ve created an ideal Hong Kong travel guide for people with even shorter time in hand.

My Cathay Pacific Economy Class Experience: India To Hong Kong

Off late I’ve started noticing the little dissimilarities that different flight operators offer. And I’ve noticed that it may just be the same class (say economy or business) with pretty much the same fare but the way different flight carriers operate — right from the check-in counter to in-flight experience to baggage collection — vaguely vary. And I think this habit, that I’ve recently inherited, happened because I’ve taken just too many flights recently — speaking of the last three months itself, about 15 flights in total. So this time as I was contacted by Cathay Pacific to try their India-Hong Kong operations, I thought, why not! Though unlike my previous airline’s collaboration with Flysoot from India to The Gold Coast, in Australia, where I was particularly asked to write a blog post for them, this time there were no deliverables involved. It was a personal choice, totally, whether I wanted to write and promote them on my blog and Instagram Page and other social media channels. I think Cathay Pacific played it smart by playing …

Why Hong Kong Is An Ideal Travel Destination

“And what about the Visa, I have never been to Hong Kong before and have no idea about its immigration laws for Indians. Am I required to apply for a travel visa for China,” I asked with a sinking feeling in me. “Oh, the good thing is, you don’t need a visa for Hong Kong if you’re travelling for no more than 15 days,” the lady on phone replied, with much affability in her voice. I fairly remember how when an invitation from Cathay Pacific landed in my inbox to travel to Hong Kong for a few days and experience their flight operations from India to Hong Kong, my biggest travel fear hit me hard. I was at 3000 m above the sea level in the Himalayas at that moment with no intention of calling off my trip and heading back to New Delhi only to apply for a visa. Returning home for applying a visa would have further meant waiting at home for a week to get the passport back before I could actually …
