Total – HK$ 3,013.4 or Php 18,381.74 per person

Our biggest expenses went to theme park admission fees. If you can do away with some of those theme parks, you’ll be spending much less. I didn’t keep track of how much we spent on food but as a general rule, we initially planned on spending around HK$50 / meal. Tip: We actually spent much less on food because we ate McDonalds most of the time or bought snacks at 7/11 stores.


  • HK$50 per meal for 9 meals – $450 per person

Grand Total – HK$ 3463.4 or Php 21,126.74 per person

  • Grand Total excluding airfare (and terminal fee/travel tax in NAIA) – HK$ 2288.5 or Php 13,959.8 per person

*computed at currency exchange rate of 1 HK$ = Php 6.1
