Trying to decide between Salisbury YMCA Hotel and Holidau Inn Golden Mile, Hong Kong. Any advice is appreciated. Thank YouIn late January, we stayed at the Salisbury YMCA and were very well pleased with this hotel's great value, super location, quality service and spectacular views, etc.
We are now back from our first river boat sailing and for sampling Southeast Asia. It was for the Mekong River!! Plus, plus!!
Well-pleased with these countries, especially Cambodia, plus the ship, staff, food, tours, etc. On my live/blog, connected below, there are dozens of pictures and many details to document these fun adventures and travels. This includes so much from Hong Kong. Happy on the live/blog to answer any and all questions, share more info/background, etc.
Now, we shift our focus and attention to mid November, 2018, for our Athens to Dubai, 20-day cruise with Oceania, including our first visits to the Holy Lands, Egypt, Middle East, etc. Many options to consider and logistics to research. Keep hearing great things from other travelers about Oceania, the staff, their food, etc. Look forward to comparing Oceania versus other cruise lines we have experienced, who has what plus and minus factors, etc.
THANKS! Enjoy! Terry in Ohio
