Plan your journey earlier

Easter is coming. There is four public holidays in Hong Kong for Easter this year. My friend and I have been planning our journey to Hangzhou West Lake in mind for weeks. Last weekend, we decided to go to the Travel Agencies to ask the price for the flight and hotel. We found two Travel Agencies with the price we could accept. When we asked the final price for our tour, the results made us sad. The price one Travel Agency offered was 2415 HKD including tax for the 4 days 3 nights tour, but there were no seats left. The other could offer 1499 HKD for the 3 days 2 nights tour, but it was not for Easter Holiday. When the final price was calculated out for our wanted 4 days 3 nights in Easter, it was 3117 HKD without tax! And the tax is about 400 HKD, which means we need to pay about 3500 HKD only for flight and hotel! How expensive! So we canceled our journey to Hangzhou West Lake. We will spend this holiday in Hong Kong.
This is the first time for us to make a journey plan ourselves. Although it failed, we know how to plan our journey next time. If you want to have a journey in this holiday, hurry up, it has been late.
