Hong Kong/ Macau 7D6N Travel Itinerary

Travelling in Hong Kong and planning on your own never gets easy, although the public transportation is very developed there but it gets pretty confusing sometimes. What confused me the most is that they have so many exits in the MTR, and they use the same road name for a very long street! @.@ 

We don't take taxi at all for our whole journey in Hong Kong/ Macau because it can get quite expensive. Traveller without tour guide better study the road/ map/ transportation before you go there, not to only save  your time, and your energy of walking too. Grab a detail map at the airport when you arrive helps a lot, we also used GPS to find the destination sometimes.

A well-planned itinerary will helps save time and prevent getting lost when you're at "don't know" where. At least you have to know where the MUST GO and MUST EAT location, and put it on the same day if there're nearby. 

I spent quite some time preparing the below itinerary, planned it to do it every night after back at the hotel but I get too exhausted, my legs were numb and sometimes my back are pain too *consequences of walking too much* T_T .We didn't follow exactly what we planned before, but we visited all the places we wish to go :D
