Enchanted Kingdom’s new attraction – Agila REVIEW and where to buy your tickets.

My daughter celebrated her birthday at Enchanted Kingdom and we had a chance to experience EK’s new ride/attraction “Agila”.

First, let me walk you through what happens when you walk in the facility. It is located near the Disc-o magic ride. There are directions where to go so all you need to do is follow the arrow that will lead you to a very tall, round shaped, glass building. You will be asked to scan your card before entering so don’t loose your tickets. For all those with kids, the minimum height to ride is 42 inches (107 cm).

Hong Kong – Where to stay

When I booked our flight 2 months ago (Feb), the first thing I scouted for was a place to stay. I looked up all possible hotels in TST (Tsim Sha Tsui) as research shows it is the best location for tourists in Hong Kong. I read though that you should avoid Chungking Mansion as it’s a bit notorious there, well, this made me think twice in staying in TST. I did a lot of research and found out that tourists likes to stay at TST because it is cheaper, close to markets, shops and transportation and it has a great view of Hong Kong Island. But I didn’t want just the view of Hong Kong Island, I felt I wanted to stay there and get the feel of being a local and not a tourist.

This is the first time for me to travel abroad now that I am older. It is different when you are young and you let the old people arrange stuff. So being on a budget, I downloaded the Airbnb app and started searching for a room for me and my daughter. I read all the reviews and compared each until my head hurt a lot. LOL.

Then I finally found the perfect room in Wan Chai, Hong Kong Island! I started messaging Ning, the owner.  She was very accommodating and very patient answering all my questions. All details were provided after I booked the room so you don’t need to worry about getting lost because you won’t. All instructions were clear and Ning will make sure you’ll find the place.
