Why did you choose Access Travel and Tours?

I saw it while browsing through the Instagram accounts of some local celebrities and bloggers, which influenced me to try and book with them as well.

What made you decide to take a trip to Hong Kong with your family? What were the things you considered when you picked this destination, or as you planned the trip?

Our Hong Kong-Macau trip was a birthday celebration for my Mom’s 60th birthday. My family is my top priority and traveling together is a way for us to spend quality time with each other.

Can you share with us some of your travel tips based on this trip?

If you are traveling to Hong Kong and you’re planning on going shopping, make sure you bring an extra bag to keep your items in. Hong Kong stores usually charge an extra fee if you ask them to put your items in a plastic bag, so it will be cost efficient and environmentally friendly if you bring your own bag.

It’s also a good idea to bring an umbrella when you’re out exploring since it can either be rainy or hot in Hong Kong. Remember to put it in your checked luggage though, most airlines will require you to do that.

Please share with us some of your recommendations when traveling around Hong Kong!

Don’t forget to go out during the night! You can spend time in their Ladies Market, where there will be bargains to take home and local dishes to try. Street food is also definitely a must in my book.

What were your favorite experiences or moments from your trip?
