My Dad and me are going to the Philippines in the end of May for 2 weeks. He's going to stay in Philippines longer than 2 weeks and I decided that I am going to travel throughout China and Japan for another 2 weeks. My ideal stops would be to go from Manila, to Hong Kong, to Beijing, Shanhai, Fly or Ferry to Osaka, then Tokyo, then finally back to the States. So 4 weeks total with Philippines in the mix. My flight from USA to Philippines, and Tokya back to USA will be paid for, as well as my hotels and food and such during the time in Philippines. Im paying for the traveling to China and Japan. I have about 3,000, possibly more if needed. Does anyone have any advice or general traveling tips, costs, cost friendly hotels and traveling means?
Im really looking to knock out some of the major historical sites in Beijing for sure and Japan, but also looking to experience the nightlife in some of the cities. Im just looking to keep costs as little as possible when it comes to traveling and hotels. Much appreciated!!
