Unconsiously its already the 5th day of my trip traveling around Shenzhen, Hongkong and Macau. After pleased having fun at Disneyland Hongkong yesterday, today i go to another themed park called Ocean Park. Actually, before went to Hongkong, we had a very difficult choice about which place we want to choose as our destination for the 5th day. Because there is not enough time, we must choose between Ngong Ping 360 or Ocean Park. After several days of discussion with my friends, finally we decide to go to Ocean Park.

January 10th, 2012 10 comments

Today i specifically spent all day in Hongkong Disneyland. Since Hongkong Disneyland open at 11 noon, we departed from Hostel around 10 o’clock. The way to Disneyland itself is quite easy to understand. You can just ride MTR Orange line (Tung Chung line) up to Sunny Bay station (Click the link if you want to see Hongkong MTR Map). The journey from Hongkong Island MTR takes about 45 minutes because we have to change Blue line to Orange line at Central. Arriving at Sunny Bay we have to change to Disneyland special train. The train will be very easily recognized because from window to interior seats and handrails all shaped Disney’s Mickey’s head.

Having been promised to meet my friends at the hostel at 10 o’clock, i spend my morning time by stroll around Tsim Sha Tsui area. Because Avenue of The Star is very close to Tsim Sha Tsui, I was walk to go there.

Travel to Hongkong (Day 1) : From Tianjin to Hongkong via Shanghai

January 7th, 2012 No comments

Finally this day have arrived. Unconsciously, my time to learn chinese language for a year already passed. Today i leaved Tianjin, the city where i lived for the last 10 months. Before i go back to Surabaya, Indonesia, I decided to travel again before returning home to Surabaya, Indonesia. The destination of travel i choose this time are Hongkong, Shenzhen and Macau. Departing from Tianjin at 6 am, I was escorted by snowfall. Woww…. It’s so beautiful. Thanks God for this beautiful moment.

From my university to the airport (Tianjin Binhai International Airport) takes about 40 minutes by taxi. I use China Eastern Airlines (Shanghai Airlines) which the ticket i purchased from Expedia. For this trip, i choose a transit via Shanghai flight because its far more cheaper than buy a direct flight to Hongkong. Total price of the airline ticket from Tianjian to Hongkong (via Shanghai) just only RMB 1,180 (US$ 185.7) or about 1.7 million rupiah, compared to direct flight that can reach RMB 2,000. The plane left on time at 8:00 AM and arrived at Shanghai Pudong International Airport at 09:55. This airport building is really long. Just to move my baggage from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2, we must walked about almost 30 minutes.
