'BigRob looks in the back to see if he can find the box his refrigerator came in.'

 

LOL. Bitch.

Does anyone else have any further airline ticketing advice from Cebu to Hong Kong? That is basically what I was asking for here.

 

Thanks,

The advice is Paul, to sign up for CebuPacific Newsletters, and learn of these 'Promo' Offers with enough notice and fore planning to book on-line and grab such Promo Rates whilst they exist.

 

You cant beat Cebu Pacific's 'Go Lite' PHP 1 seat sale to all international and domestic destinations.

 

OK so you needed to grab the following 'Promo' by Booking before November 22 for flights June 15 - Sep 30, 2010

But if you knew back in October/November last year, that you wanted to get to, Hong Kong say, in Jul/Aug/Sep 2010, then it was a fantastic deal.

Low Fares alert!

Be the first to know about the latest Cebu Pacific promos.

Fields marked with asterisk (*) are required.

 

I expect you would have already signed up for such Cebu Pacific NEWS, Paul, and just left it too late to get these great Promos.

So perhaps you are just asking if anything other than Cebu Pacific Promo, paid in advance.

 

What I like about Cebu Pacific, is their approach to save the passengers money on the cost of flying. They don't have a City Airport Check-in @ Hong Kong to save costs, but you cant pay extra to avil of such either - they don't have a City Check in Desk anymore. I also like the fact that they offer Return flights that are 2 x Single. This means you can pick a 'Promo' at lowest cost, where you know exactly when you will be flying, since such 'fares' have restrictions on not being able to cancel for refund, nor change the flight, without charges. If you are not sure exactly when you will be returning, you can book a different class of Tickets for that 'leg', that allows changes to the booking.

 

If you want to eat on board, then you pay extra.

 

Ryan Air was considering charging those who wanted to use the Toilet on-board! Perhaps that is taking cost savings to far but would work for short Domestic Routes, but more diificult on International Routes, such as say a flight to Hong Kong?

It might be a concern if Ryan Air flew to Hong Kong. But they don't, so the point is moot.

Paul,

I'm impressed you're planning now for a trip next October. Mr. Plan-Ahead!

 

I took my gf Honey Mae to Hong Kong this past September. Here's my experience:

 

TICKETS

I bought two round-trip tickets on Cebu Pacific, CEBU > HKG > MNL > CEBU

Ticket cost total P17,112 = $370 US.

As others have pointed out, there are buy-ahead-promos, but I'd guess there is a 90% chance you can get a reasonable deal like mine if you buy just a week before your trip.

 

LODGING

I gave my gf a choice: Did she wanna stay in a "nice" hotel and have a tiny shopping budget, or stay in a "kuripot" place and have a big shopping budget? In the twinkle of an eye, she chose door #2.

So,

Chungking Mansions! (I'm 100% with Balay on this one.) I've been sacking out there since my first visit to Hong Kong in 1974. Yes it's dirty, and a firetrap, and there are some unsavory characters hanging about, but its also very safe and a classic Hong Kong experience.

We stayed at Travellers Hostel, A Block, 16th Floor, TEL. +852 2368-7710

You can reserve over the phone without deposit.

We got an aircon room with private CR for 150 HKD ($19 USD.) Highly recomended.

 

ENTERTAINMENT

There are countless opportunities for entertainment and fun in HKG. Here are the ones Honey Mae enjoyed the most:

Peak Tram (Hong Kong Island)

MTR (Mass Transit Railway)

Stanley Market (budget shopping)

Mongkok ladies market (budget shopping)

World Wide House (Filipino shops and carenderias on Hong Kong Island)

 

and, last but not least,

Jolibee Hong Kong (next to Wide World House on Hong Kong Island)

I quoted Ryan Air, as taking Budget costs to the extreme, by having passengers pay for the Loo on board.

 

I was considering 'What If' Cebu Pacific started considering such cost savings also.

 

I could see that might be OK for flight Cebu-Manilla, but not sure if it practical for Cebu-Hong Kong flights or longer routes?

Perhaps they would make money from those who don't have strong enough bladder, bowels to go 3+ hours?

 

No way I could last for flights from Hong Kong to UK, without going to the CR on board (over 12 hours). Expect it will cost more than a 'penny' (Ryan Air was talking
