Hong Kong 2009

I will be attending another Intellectual Property Conference by the name Asian Patents Attorney Conference @ Hong Kong this November. The event will be held at the Hong Kong Convention Centre. This 6 days event would be a great opportunity for us to network there. Last year, it was in Singapore.

This time round three (3) people from my firm will attend. Once again, I am in charge of registration, fixing meetings and also accommodation. The conference organizers have set out some recommended hotels nearby Hong Kong Convention Centre. We may book hotels through the organizers but the availability is not guaranteed by them. Hence, I decided to book our hotel through the internet.

I browsed this website by the name AsiaRooms.com for hotels nearby the Hong Kong Convention Centre. I was interested in this hotel by the name of Harbourview Hotel. The price is not too expensive than the other recommended hotels. Further, it’s just a few minutes walk from the Convention Centre.

Asiarooms gave me the rate of US137 (~RM490) per night.

It was above the quoted rate by the organizers. So I decided to try out another website called Hotelscombined.com which was also recommended by Melissa.

Hotelscombined gave me the rate in RM320.86 per night.

w00t! RM100 cheaper!

My firm better pay me better bonus for saving them so much money!!

  1. Suggest book thru Air Asia’s website as they offer the cheapest hotel rate compare to other website. What you see in the website is what you pay.. no hidden charges….dont forget to bring some HK$ as the deposit. The hotelier will ask for it upon checkin. Normaly they will ask for 1 night room rate as the deposit. Besides HK$ they accept RMB as well
