Your thoughts on Max Savings for Nclex-RN exams in Hong Kong

  1. 0
    Hi! Greetings of Peace to all of you! I would like to ask the Filipinos who have already taken the nclex-rn exams and those who have valid,reliable&verifiable info on the latest travel and accommodation perks, what is the cheapest way to get the exams? By saying the cheapest way, I am referring to what is the best method to save on the travel and accommodation?

    What airline company offers the lowest rate for trip to HK? How much is the cheapest offer available at present? future(and when)?

    What is the nearest hotel to the exam site? The second nearest? 3rd? 4th? 5th? 6th? 7th? 8th? 9th? 10th? Please explain how far/near are these hotels from the test site?

    How much do these nearby hotels costs?

    What is the best hotel that offers the best value for your money with reference to distance to the test site and price of accommodation/fee for accommodation?

    Are there travel agencies in manila and bacolod that can offer airfare, accommodation for a packaged/discounted rate? How much am I going to pay? How long is the stay? If the venue/accommodation where they would place me is far from the test site, will they offer free travel service to the test site?

    What agency in manila and bacolod offers the best rate and value(services)at present?

    Please help me. Thanks.

    i've heard that others were satisfied using cebupacificair.com fun tour hk package for nurses. everything you need to know is in their website or you can email them or visit their office near you for more info. the hotel recommended by some is south pacific hotel. there's a free shuttle service from hotel to test center.

    not in the list of hotels of cebupacificair.com are central park hotel and the newest one which is lan kwai fong hotel which others said are the two nearest to the test center. 5-10 minutes walking distance. search for the hotels' websites or click http://www.asiatravel.com/hongkong.html but you need to arrange for your airline ticket, airport transfers, etc...or you can have this taken cared of by a travel agency of your choice. check the phone directory for reliable travel agencies near you.

    you can compare the options in terms of total cost and of travel arrangements for a safe and worry-free travel for your purpose.

    http://www.cebupacificair.com/dwnloa...nTourHKG01.doc

    according to a map, central park hotel is the nearest hotel to the testing center..
    but if you know someone who live in Hongkong( a relative or a friend), it's better..coz you can save money... instead of checking in to a hotel...

    Thanks kiko88! You have been very helpful! okey I will check on these packages/hotels and the cebu pacific rates/promos.

    Thanks for the website of the hotels in hk, and for providing me info on the 2 nearest hotels, and the recommendation by others.

    it's good that with these infos, i may be able to find the best value for money in terms of rate/expenditure of hotel and airfare plus land travels , food, room comfort/quality, distance to the exam site, hassles for arrangements on other things needed like transfers/shuttle/vehicle service to test site, etc...

    once again, i thank you for a very helpful information.

    Thanks to the ones who have provided me info, kiko88 and kathykaye!

    Hmmm, I'm planning on how much money will be needed for my stay in hk for the exams...so I'll proceed with some more questions:

    How are the food prices in HK?

    will i encounter other expenses other than food?

    how much money is needed for a 3 days 2 nights stay or 4 days 3 nights stay in hk as with regards to hk life expenses?

    what are the types of food available there?

    For other personal needs like groceries, hygiene stuff, etc. how much is needed for the duration of my stay there in hk?

    how are the people there? can they speak in english?

    how is the temperature in hk? what are their temperature ranges(hottest to lowest) and please provide me info on the conditions especially on the last quarter?

    is it advisable to book by the end of the quarter or just early next year? which is cheaper?

    By the way, as with the nclex-rn test, can I just get the test anytime after I get my ATT or do I have to synchronize everything(hotels and airplane booking)?

    when(time and days of the week)is the exam usually given?

    how many can be accommodated in a day?

    thanks.

    i found a map of hongkong here in our house.. maybe my sister bought it in a bookstore..lol

    ATT has a validity period.. from 90 days- 1 year..validity period of att depends on each state..u should schedule an appointment for the nclex rn exam by calling the NCLEX candidate services (because HK is an international testing site)... the test is administered 6days a week. my friend told me that there are about 10 cubicles in the HK testing site.. goodluck god bless..

    one important thing: bring hk$500 extra with you.

    the hotel will ask for this deposit, or your credit card, when you check in to the hotel. some people who went there on a very tight budget had problems with this.

    i saw mostly chinese food, there's a fast food joint there, fair wood i think. try their milk tea (nai cha).

    however, my friend who went there a couple weeks before me had some gi problems after eating the local food...had some difficulty taking the nclex with a bum stomach...so i stuck with mcdonald's.

    i saw a pizza hut in kowloon.

    mostly nicer now, and most can speak english. or at least understand.
