Dazzling Da Nang trip- preparation

Initially we decided to redeem flight tickets to Hokkaido a few months ago with Asiamiles for our annual summer getaway. Unfortunately, bumping into the high flowers seasons, we were too late to make a booking. We kept waiting for the confirmation of flight tickets but we couldn't stand for the groundless feeling. Has been searching for cheap flight tickets since then and ended up choosing Da Nang. Actually it's usually kinda cheap flying with Hong Kong Express at around a thousand dollars. We got ours at HKD1900 each and it sounds quite reasonable during summer holidays.

Birthday family stay -YHA Mei Ho House @Hong Kong

Made good use of the Best Rate Guarantee (BRG) for hotel again, we claimed a very cheap stay celebrating my birthday with joy together with my family.

Using the trick of BRG which matches the lower rate I found in other websites plus a compensation of USD50/ claim, we got a stay at USD14.67 only with breakfast included! (around HKD117)

Orbitz's offer: more than USD64.67
Agoda's offer: USD64.67- USD50 compensation= USD14.67

YHA Mei Ho House Youth Hostel was located at Shek Kep Mei, a bit of walk from the MTR station. Even it is named as a hostel, there is a variety of room types to choose from catering the needs of single travellers (dormitories), couples (Double rooms) or even family (Family Ensuites). 

Maybe it was the peak hour when everybody checked in and out the hostel, we had been waited for a while for our turn at the reception. Nevertheless, it didn't impatient coz every corner of the hostel looked interesting and unique to us.
