Money is tight the next few months as I'm paying off furniture in my flat, but I have the chance to fly to Hong Kong in April on a free ticket (taxes only) and really don't want to miss this opportunity.
The thing that puts me off is the standard of accommodation there. I think my budget for a hotel would be £250 for 5 nights. I'm travelling solo so wouldn't be able to share the cost of a double. From research, it just seems that all I can get for that is a dirty shoebox in this place called Chungking Mansions or similar. The rooms look quite nasty and I wouldn't be comfortable there.
Is that really all I can get for this price?? Should I maybe just stay for 4 nights instead or just wait until I have more money next year?
