Tutubi's Backpacking Hong Kong Tour Itinerary
What made the trip different from the usual Hong Kong trip was that Tutubi, having an insatiable thirst for history and anything historic, visited the place where Jose Rizal lived in Hong Kong, where the Philippine national hero held his clinic, the street where Jose Maria Basa lived in exile and the hill where Marcela Agoncillo sewed the first Philippine flag to be unfurled by Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo later in Kawit, Cavite during the Philippine Declaration of Independence
Join Tutubi in his journey as he tours modern Hong Kong, brought under British rule in an ignominious war for opium, now reverted to China. He will present his tour as if you were with him, with the usual travel tips and warnings so you will not fall into the same tourist traps, share his budget and ways to maximize your hard-earned money for it not to go into the hands of short-changing tour operators Hong Kong is notorious of.

I've never been to Hongkong. I didn't realize that Rizal lived there. My history knowledge is very rusty. Shame on me.

I've never visited Hong Kong and don't have any intention to do at the moment. Though fascinated with the city lights at night, still I prefer other places.
However, I can't wait for your posts. It may change my mind ... Hehe!

hi! tutubi next time you go backpacking in hong-kong try visit venetian hostel! its in tsim sha tsui. a lot of filipinos are staying in this hostel cheap and clean. close to places to shop and sightseeing. avenue of star is just a few minutes away. harbor city, kowloon park and very accessible pa.

hi! tutubi have you tried staying in hostels when you went backpacking in hk? i stayed at one of the best hostels in tsim sha tsui. i stayed at usa hostel. cheap and clean place to stay. close to everything shopping and sightseeing..very accessible. avenue of stars, star ferry and harbor city mall minutes away lang. and lots of filipinos are staying there as well so mas marami ka makakasabay sa pamamasyal.....

edel mae, nope. stayed at a hotel in mongkok. will try to find it out. in hk all you need is to look for cheap accommodations near an MTR station and it's very easy :P

buen, depends on the site. presence of https ang some security features so it depends on site to site basis.
