Honored to be a guest blogger for Jetlag and Mayhem. This site is created from a fellow blogger in Hong Kong, Nicola, who primarily focuses on traveling with kids. My article was posted last week and I’ve duplicated it below, I hope it helps readers find some inexpensive travel destinations from Hong Kong.
I’m happy to be guest writing on Jetlag & Mayhem. My name is Christopher and I am an avid traveler and love trying to get the best deals for my trips which I share on my Hong Kong Travel Blog (http://www.hktravelblog.com) Today, I want to share with all of the Jetlag & Mayhem readers some of the best cheap destinations to visit from Hong Kong.
As you may suspect, mainland China provides numerous cheap destinations from Hong Kong. Aside from the usual suspects such as Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, and Xi’an, there’s plenty of smaller cities which offer better bang for the buck and more culture.
My favorite cheap mainland China destinations include:
- · Guilin (the village of Yangshuo specifically,)
- · Kunming (old town of Lijiang in Yunnan and the Shilin Stone Forest are nearby,)
- · Chengdu / Chongqing (visit the Panda reserve)
Outside of China other cheap nearby destinations include:
- · Chiang Mai & Chiang Rai Thailand
- · Siem Reap Cambodia
I had a great time in both destinations, riding elephants and hiking in the forests in Chiang Rai, and climbing the breathtaking temples of the Angkor Wat complex.
Booking Cheap Fares
Cathay Pacific / Dragonair has been introducing weekly fanfares for the past few months, and you could score a cheap ticket to one of these destinations if your timing is right! The fanfares are released every Tuesday morning at 8am HKT. Otherwise Hong Kong Airlines sometimes offers cheap fare sales as well.
I hope this article helps you and your family find a cheap and interesting destination for your next holiday!
