Hong-Kong legs finally booked

After trying to reach Cathay Pacific for 3 days using every possible phone number, the travel agent managed to have someone this morning and confirm the booking. I shall be in Hong-Kong by july 18 and will try to stay at the YMCA until saturday.

The YMCA is located at the tip of the Kowloon peninsula and well situated in the business and shopping center all this for the 'amazing' (I'm joking) price of about HK$250 in dormitories (to avoid you doing the maths that's about US$32 ! ).

I don't feel like staying at the dreadful Chunking Mansions that seems to strike horror among backpackers and don't want to be in the New Territories. For a longer stay I probably would check Ascension House which seems quite nice.
