Traveling the globe with nothing but a backpack doesn’t sound like the easiest thing you’ll ever do, but if you’re a woman ready to have a great time, this is something you should definitely do. Other women have been doing that for a while now, yet most of them stick to areas close to them and don’t choose locations that are on the other side of the world. Still, if you wish to show everyone what a trailblazing lady you really are, backpacking through a distant and unknown region is something you need to do as soon as possible. One of the locations you might want to pick is Hong Kong, and if you too are planning to realize all your backpacking potentials there, here are a few things you need to know.


For most women, going to Hong Kong means traveling thousands and thousands of miles halfway across the world. Consequently, that also means having to pack tons of stuff, which isn’t that hard – but don’t forget that you’re not traveling to Hong Kong, but backpacking there!

In this case, choosing what you’re going to pack and fitting all those things into your backpack becomes quite a challenging project. There are lots of things you might need – from your clothes and your documents to your gadgets and your books – so making a selection is a must. Stick to the simple things you’re going to need, and skip those you may be able to purchase once you arrive or find in your hotel.



No matter how long you’re planning on staying in Hong Kong or what you’d like to do there, the chances are you won’t be able to cross all the things off your list. This place is huge and full of amazing sights that deserve your time, patience, and attention, which is why investing time into choosing the right places to visit can go a long way. 

However, this isn’t something you’ll be able to do in just a few minutes, which is why you have to create your schedule and work on your itinerary before you leave for the airport. Once you put down all the things you’d like to see, do, visit, try, and experience, divide these activities into days and you’ll always know what’s next on your itinerary. This will help you get more efficient and productive during your stay in Hong Kong, so don’t be afraid to start working on this idea right now!


Unlike your traditional vacation or road trip, backpacking means you’ll be very active and physically pushing yourself to your limits. That’s why women need to find the right place to stay and make sure it’s equipped with a comfortable bed where they can spend the night and get some rest. Luckily, Hong Kong is full of such spaces and you shouldn’t have a problem finding the right accommodation.

The type of the place you’ll pick depends on a number of factors – the location, the size, the availability, the price, the safety factor, the amenities, etc. – which is why finding an accommodation that’s safe and close to the action yet not too expensive is the win-win scenario. Some people prefer fancy hotels, others stick to inexpensive hostels, while some think in another direction and opt for a comfy studio apartment that’s not just visually appealing, totally secure, and very welcoming, but also highly practical. These apartments are fully furnished and equipped with all sorts of amenities, which means you won’t have to pack your hairdryer or other stuff, and that’s great for backing women everywhere!


Even though backpacking is all about being on your feet most of the day, you need to understand that you won’t be able to keep up with an exhausting schedule for too long. This is why you’ll need to make the most of your nights and get proper rest, but there’s another trick you can look into – using local transportation instead of walking all the time, especially if you’re a fan of wearing high heels.

Public transportation in Hong Kong is very professional, safe, versatile, punctual, affordable, and, above all, comfortable. There are several ways to go, and you can use buses, trams, subway lines, and taxis. Looking into these options beforehand and creating a plan in advance is another idea women should look into, and you should also think about transportation when planning your flight and choosing your accommodation.

No matter how much experience you have, Hong Kong might not be your first option for a backpacking adventure, but it certainly deserves your attention. This place is exciting, friendly, and appealing to women from all over the globe, so make sure you start planning your trip there right now!
