Meet Poonam Garg, a real estate agent, who went on a trip to Hong Kong and Macau with her business-cum-life partner Vikas. Their 8-day holiday was full of ups and downs, but that didn’t deter the duo from having a wonderful time. This romantic adventure through TravelTriangle came to them at cost (including hotels, sightseeing, and cabs) of INR 81,140.
Having traveled to many Asian countries before, we were looking for a holiday that would provide us with a balance of adventure and relaxation. Inspired by the IIFA awards and their exotic show in Macau, we decided on the two places of Hong Kong and Macau for our next holiday.
Our trip was very well planned and organized by TravelTriangle. Our travel expert, Ankit, was efficient and prompt in managing all our details before we left for our holiday.
Day 1 – Meeting Macau
We landed in Hong Kong at around 9 am in the morning. Upon our arrival, we were escorted to the Hong Kong Pier to take our ferry to Macau. There was slight confusion with regard to our luggage, but we didn’t let it affect our spirits. After the initial hitch, we enjoyed the hour long ferry ride.
In the afternoon, we checked into our hotel, Holiday Inn Cotai Central Hotel. The hotel was nice and comfortable. We spent the rest of our day resting and reviving our energies for the next day.

Day 2 – Madness in Macau
The day began with a slight low, as we got delayed waiting in the wrong lobby of the hotel for our tour. However, the city of Macau more than made up for it.
During the city tour, we visited various highlights of the city such as the casinos and the Macau Tower.
The view from the latter was spectacular. The forty minutes spent there, were too little to do all the interesting activities, though.
Macau was incredibly enjoyable and wonderful.
The evening ended spending time in the in-house casinos.
Day 3 – Hello Hong Kong!
We left for Hong Kong in the morning. Our hotel was not up to the level we expected. It was a little less equipped when compared to our place of stay in Macau. Immigration formalities, and traveling to the hotel took a very long time. There was some miscommunication with the driver also.

The rest of the day was spent recovering from our journey and exploring the city by ourselves. The city of Hong Kong looked absolutely stunning in the evening, when it was lit up.
Day 4 – Ocean Park’s Adventures
The entire day was spent at the Ocean Park. It was filled with amusement rides and is Southeast Asia’s largest water park.
It was also a marine mammal park, where we got to see the various types of animals.
Day 5 – Feeling the Disney Magic
We had a full day tour around the Disneyland, in Penny’s bay, Lantau Island.
We got to enjoy the various Disney-themed rides, which was a nice experience for all of us. If traveling with kids, this place is a must visit!
It definitely reminded of us our childhood, reviving happy memories.
It’s an enjoyable visit for both adults and children.
Day 6 – Fun Galore in Hong Kong

After a breakfast at the hotel, we headed to another half city tour. We visited the Souvenir Shop, Avenue Star, and Victoria Peak.The highlight of the day was Victoria Peak. We could view the entire city in one go and the experience was just serene and stunning.
The visit to Madame Tussauds was very enjoyable as well.
Day 7 – Befriending the Buddha
The last day of the holiday was probably one of the best of our entire trip.
We visited the Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery. Located in Sha Tin, its scenic beauty and atmosphere will make anyone fall in love.
Meeting various monks from the monastry was an interesting experience as well.

The experience was unique and definitely worth the entire effort.
Overall, even though we had our ups and downs through the trip, it was memorable for the both of us.
We got to meet new people through the trip and make friendships we will cherish. The next destination that we want to travel to is Europe, and we are sure our adventures will only get better.
