Important note:

* Book your hotel prior departure to Hong Kong. the immigration sometimes ask for your Hotel Voucher, so better be ready with some documents that is possible to be shown.
* If you are planning to visit Ocean park or Disneyland, I suggest to book your ticket via Klook to get discounted tickets.
* The food inside Disneyland is quite pricey and they won't allow any food or drinks coming from outside so you either eat a lot before you go to this theme park or buy a food or else magugutom ka talaga hahaha.
* Get a map. Sometimes or I think all of the hotels have maps of Hong Kong which will help you a lot when taking MTR. and it will save you from getting confuse on what line to take if you are going somewhere.
* Hong Kong Socket. When in Hong Kong, you need to have the type G socket (the 3-pin rectangular blade plug). Electricity is 220 Volts at 50 Hertz. You can purchase adapters from the mall, hardware stores or convenience stores, but keep in mind that it will not convert voltage or frequency. We were shookt to know thisbut i think, the adoptor was 20HKD. I'm Shookt! you need this, so if you have this kind of adoptor at home, better bring it or else hindi ka makakapag-charge.
