One of the sales incentives of DRIVEN Marketing Group, Inc. is the much awaited Travel incentive. The company had already visited Boracay, Palawan, Malaysia, and Singapore. The travel incentive was given to our qualified Real Estate Brokers, Real Estate Agents, and the hard working staff and management. The trip includes air fare, hotel accommodation, tour packages and group dinner with our board of directors.
This year, our company visited Hong Kong. We enjoyed our 4 days and 3 nights and treated ourselves with fun filled memorable experience.
Day 1: The Arrival
Arrived at Hong Kong International Airport at 04:58 PM. Our first meeting with the Management, and DRIVENites (this is how we call our Salesperson and Brokers) took place at Regal Oriental Hotel, in Kowloon City, Hong Kong the place where we stayed for 4 days and 3 nights.
After the gathering, we had our first dinner together with all the management and DRIVENites at a nearby restaurant, the Golden Orchid Thai Restaurant along Lung Kong Road in Kowloon City. The food was delicious and the accommodation of the waitresses were good (I heard that one of the staff or the owner is half Filipino). Most of the restaurants in Hong Kong only serves warm water due to the 12-15 degree celcius weather during our visit.
DRIVENites had their free time after dinner, some went to the Night Market in Mong Kok, others just took a stroll within the area, and most of them went back to the hotel and took a rest to get ready for the next day’s tour.
Day 2: A Whole New World – Hong Kong Disneyland
We woke up early at 6:00 am and had a 5 minute walk to McDonalds. We had our breakfast early and give our empty stomach a lot of burgers, pan cakes, and coffee. Take note that they don’t serve rice meal in McDonald’s Hong Kong. We also have our takeout orders so that we will not get hungry on our way to a whole new world.
After breakfast, we immediately travel through MTR to the magical world of Hong Kong Disneyland, where dreams do come true. We were all excited to go to this popular themed park in Hong Kong because most of us were first timers.
We heard that food and other stuff in the park are expensive. Food bought outside are prohibited inside the park except for drinking water so we are forced to eat our takeouts before entering the gates.
We entered the park by group, so others were free to go where ever they want inside the park. We can see the big smile in the faces of all DRIVENites, all were excited and happy while entering the park. Taking pictures, being “Goofy”, wandering around, imagining themselves riding those rides, and little by little reaching one of their dreams.
Food and stuff were indeed expensive because one meal costs around HKD109 – HKD140.

Hong Kong Disneyland is one of the largest theme park in Hong Kong. The Park has seven themed areas: Main Street, U.S.A, Fantasyland, Adventureland, Tomorrowland, Grizzly Gulch, Mystic Point, and Toy Story Land. But at least, we were still able to see all the areas of the park and we are not afraid if we get lost in the park because the staff or the park’s cast members can speak English, so there’s no difficulty asking for directions.
All were tired but still had the energy to share their experiences to other DRIVENites (even though they were together in the same park). It’s like they were back to being a child again. Here are some of the pictures and the happy faces taken inside the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort by our DRIVENites:
Day 3: The Cable Car Experience
After a fun filled day at Hong Kong Disneyland, our next adventure is at Ngong Ping 360, where we had rode a gondola to reach the Ngong Ping village.
The Ngong Ping 360/Cable Car is also one of the most popular tourist attractions in Hong Kong, so if you’re going to visit Hong Kong, you MUST put it in your itinerary! It offers a 25 minutes journey and the views are so amazing and stunning. A view of greenery and some of the high-rise buildings of Hong Kong.
After the ride we went inside the Ngong Ping Village. It has been designed to reflect the cultural and spiritual veracity of the Ngong Ping area. They also have dining, retail spaces, and entertainment experiences inside the area. As we walk further, we saw the Tian Tan Buddha, also known as the Big Buddha.
We had to climb 268 steps to reach the Big Buddha. But it is all worth it because of the great views you can find when you’re at the top. Here are some of the pictures taken inside the Ngong Ping Village by our DRIVENites:
Of course, we enjoyed again our fun filled experience at Ngong Ping Village. We ended early, and some of the DRIVENites part ways for their free time. They made their stay at Hong Kong very worth it. Since this is our 3rd day in Hong Kong and on the next day we will be going back to Manila, we already bought some souvenir for our family and friends. Souvenirs from Mong Kok, Central Station, etc., and others went to places they not yet reached.
Day 4: The Departure
Before our flight back to Manila, we conducted an Accreditation Seminar for our Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) to help them reach their DREAMS. Many had attended the seminar, many OFW’s wants to fulfill their own dreams and fulfill the dreams of their families.
After the Seminar, it’s now time for our Departure, going to say Good bye to this beautiful country. We will surely miss this and we will surely going back to this wonderful place. Xie Xie and Zai Jian Hong Kong.
