Do a Layover in Hong-Kong. Inexpensive and totally worth it.

If you’re heading “off the beaten path” anywhere in Asia, you might as well make a stop in Hong Kong on your way in or out. For roughly 100 USD, you can stay in the local YMCA which is situated in an awesome part of Kowloon. Best of all, it’s really quite a nice place to stay, just like any hotel.

 If you were roughing it in some jungle somewhere or schmoozing at some beach somewhere, it’s always good to touch one more place before heading home. For me, the two day layover was a highlight of my trip. Hong Kong is so beautiful and interesting, I will include it on any trip I can. Just remember to bring an umbrella!
