Hong Kong: Traveling for $20 A Day - Ep 17

2428 ratings | 244363 views
Hong Kong is one of the most expensive cities in Asia, but is it possible to travel in HK with 20 dollars a day? In fact, there are two methods for traveling HK with 20 USD (155 HKD) and I'm gonna show you how it's done! Support me on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/monkeyabroad First method to travel HK with 20 bucks: Book a hostel (~$18) and buy an egg sandwich at 7/11. Second method to travel HK with 20 bucks: MAKE A FRIEND, sleep on their couch, have 20 bucks left over do actually do stuff for the whole day (the method I chose). How I spent my day traveling in Hong Kong: Star Ferry ride - 3.4 HKD Subway ride - 4.5 HKD Breakfast - 25 HKD Lunch - 35 HKD Subway ride - 13.5 HKD Hiking Victoria Peak - FREE Sports drink - 19.5 HKD Dinner - 55 HKD Accommodation - FREE (friend's couch) TOTAL - 155.9 HKD ($20.10) Sick BEATS provided courtesy of The Passion HiFi http://www.thepassionhifi.com/ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- About Me: My name is Kevin Cook. I'm originally from Dallas, TX, but I've been living and traveling in Asia since 2013. After graduating from university in 2011 and working a few unfulfilling jobs, I saved enough money to move to Asia and work as a teacher for a few years. That opportunity allowed me to travel around and experience new foods and cultures, and ignited a passion for blogging and making videos. Now I travel full-time and make videos with the goal that I can encourage YOU to pursue your own dream of overseas traveling and living. If you enjoy watching my videos, you can help me grow my channel by giving my videos a 'thumbs up', leaving a comment, sharing them, and subscribing! Thank you :) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Follow me on all my adventures: Blog - http://monkeyabroad.com Facebook - http://facebook.com/monkeyabroad Instagram - http://instagram.com/monkeyabroad -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

$20 in HK IS CRAZY!! So there's also an app called QPoint which essentially is a guide with shopping and dining offers. It's produced by the Hong Kong Quality Tourism Services Association. You would've been able to get some freebies there! https://itunes.apple.com/sg/app/qpoint-hk/id1395840868?mt=8 :)

Air bnb has entire apartment listings for around $50usd to $100. So if you go with a friend that's $25 a piece and those prices seem really affordable

There is no way you can make it if you hadnt got a friend staying there , (free accomdation). You should try $20 in Singapore without a friend , and let us know if you can make it.... Cheers!!

Nice video! Yep I agree, you can do Hong Kong on $20 per day. Easy! The cheapest hostel I could find must have cost around $15 per night. Only a short stay for me, but worth couchsurfing or crashing at a friends place. I made some similar vlogs to do Hong Kong on a budget ..cheap food, transport, etc. I stayed in Causeway Bay which I found was very cheap for local food (even cheap bakeries for breakfast) and convenient for transport. So if your viewers are considering a convenient and cheap location, then Kowloon is a good spot. But also really check out Causeway Bay. Minus accommodation and having a Octopus travel card, I was probably doing less than $20 per day on average.

Well if you want cheap food just go to Tam Chai Noodle shop and ask for the Jumbo set meal, it's around 50HKD and i'm sure you can barely finish it the portion is really huge lol

Impossible to survive in mauritius for 20 DOLLARS :D
DaTTYph (1 year ago)
You could spend a little less if you ask for food with the filipina workers that hang out there in central, they are nice and will let you have some to eat. Ferry? U can save $3 if you just go swim in from hk island to kowloon..

Why not try a $10 a day video if hostel is free.
Joshua Brande (1 year ago)
Yeah, lodging is the biggest expense, then eating, then transport. If some generous person offers you a place to sleep, another offers something to eat and you're willing to walk nearly everywhere, it's possible to see the world. on the cheap. May Luck be with you.

Pro HK tip: Skip lunch hours (usually till 2.30pm) and wait for tea set (2.30pm-5.30pm). Almost same quantity and quite better price.
How about $20 in Guangzhou, China?

hi Kev bud, i think it will be interesting to put your quest more to like a challenge than capping it on $20, that way the possible and not possible will give your vlogs a more logical statement and open the quest to more countries. Thanks a bunch

Well ... 6:38 just a warm reminder that we speak Cantonese, not Mandarin, it is not SG/ Taiwan. 7-11 stuffs are too expensive. Go to local kiosk if you can find it , much cheaper.

Which city is your favourite so far you find budget friendly and food is delicious..??
T zwcard (1 year ago)
A great meal in HK usually cost me about 100HKD, but I can get myself some satisfying food here in Guangzhou for about 50RMB. The price in HK is more higher, I don't think you can actually only spend 20ish USD in HK even you got a free place to stay in one day b4 lol.

$20usd is definitely doable
