Hi Everyone! I am taking my exam in Taiwan because I cant get an early date for a HK test site. Looks like Id be spending so much more for this trip. First I have to apply for a Taiwan visa-$36 I think, I dont even know how to go about this, no travel agency here in Bacolod helps with the visa issuance! BUMMER...then airfare is $348 via Philippine Airlines, $398 if China Air...geeeez tooo expensive plus accomodations, etc. huhuhu Please if anyone out there can advice me on how to lessen my expenses, message me. I am really not familiar with the packages with travel agencies, though I went to 2 travel agencies, they do not have special promotions for Taiwan. Also, I hope someone would be kind enough to share their Taiwan NCLEX experiences...
Thank you so much guys!! Any input would be appreciated.

Resolved my dilemma!~! I have been constantly checking on availability of schedules in HK, practically almost every 10 minutes...hahaha well, I got lucky, found a slot for Ocotber, not so bad at all.
Congrats. It's really worthwhile to always check in HK for slots because you will be saving so much more than other testing sites. You can still continue checking the HK test slots once in a while. There will be more opening up on a day-to-day basis, even in one day. I remember, changing sched 3-4x in a day until I got the BEST day and time I want and on off-peak days too. There are certain days in a week where the hotel is cheaper and certain months where flights to HK are also cheaper. You will know this once you get to pick the dates on your flights. It varies depending on the dates. I really recommend booking you flight online.
There are only 2 local carriers going to HK and you can see their scheds and price on their on-line website.
Last advice as well. Book your flight at least 1 month before your schedule because you will be saving more if you book it way ahead of your test appointment. Likewise, make sure you arrive in HK at least 24 hours before your test date so that you can check out the testing site and this also will make sure that if something goes wrong such as delayed or cancelled flights due to storms or something you have some time to re-sched the appointment or workout the next possible flight. This has happened very recently.
