Splash Out

Bed and Breakfast never looked as good as it does at the Mandarin Oriental. Stay in 5* luxury for one night and eat like a king the next morning from $4280. Come on, we did say splash out, but we’ve still kept in with our 5k budget.

Weekend on the Southside

Who said you can only have fun by at fancy-schmancy 5-star hotels? Wanna see a different side of Hong Kong but still experience the #LuxLife? Book a weekend at Ovolo Southside in Wong Chuk Hang. While the hotel’s got enough going on so you don’t have to leave (free breakfast, Wi-Fi, mini bar, happy hour, Apple TV with loads of content, anyone?), Ocean Park’s just down the road add to all your fun. They even have room packages with tickets to the park included! Ocean Park Day packages with 1-night stay start at just HK$1,200. Get moving!

Rock Out
Hong Kong Disneyland Resort

Nothing says rocking out quite like Mickey Mouse, at least we think so anyway! A 10-minute walk from Disneyland Hong Kong, this Victorian-style resort even overlooks the South China Sea, and is the best place to watch the daily firework show from.
