    Why do you need an agent to book that for you? You have the destinations so can book your won flights and hotels are easy to find and book.
    USD7,800 for 10 nights is on the high side if you ask me when you consider that that works out to HKD6,100 per day in a country where the average worker makes HKD8 per day.
    A fool and his money..........comes to mind!

    Have a look on the Thorn Tree on Lonely Planet- you'll get a lot of useful info from that.
