    P150 - 175 thou. there were 3 of us. 5 days inclusive of ocean park and disney, with shopping, fares for the duration of stay, food. etc. homestay near exam site.
    but, i think P25 thousand - P30 thousand is enough for a 3 days stay.
    try buda travels near edsa and quezon avenue.

    no shopping, no disney and other extras. 30 thou is quite sufficient for 2 - 3 days.

    but be safe - 50 thousand for 3 days perhaps because you may be lured to go shopping. better ask a travel agent just to be sure. i don't know if rates have gone up.

    its much cheaper if you handle everything from flight to your hotel.

    though based on my experience, you can get a good deal from online reservation sites like hoteltravel.com or asiarooms.com if you transact with them at least 2-3 mo. in advance, but it depends on the season.

    i ended up with central park hotel and flights via cebu pacific.

    the key is to book as early to get the lowest rates.

    read more here and will post more of my adventures soon:

    I spent around 50K. 5 days stay plus Ocean Park and Shopping. HK is a nice place to visit. Make sure to have some fun and tours after taking the NCLEX exam. You sure deserved to have a break. After all those months of studying. Visiting places around HK makes you forget the anxiety after the exam. Goodluck to you...

    I've been there too. Nice place indeed with lots of nice eating places. Cafe de coral. My advice here is that you have to bring your own water. There are cheap hotels in kowloon area; 100 hk/night. I stayed at central park hotel pretty near at the grand millenium plaza than Ramada Hotel.

    You just need maybe 30,000 php.

    hi! i checked their website and yes i think they are a lot cheaper than the others i looked into. its like $300++ for a 3d/2n including airfare and hotel. and the the flight is with pal. i checked the 2 hotels nearest to the testing center: central park is $320/pax and lan kwai fong is $362/pax.

    has anybody tried booking with them before?
