SIM CARDS IN HONG KONG

SIM CARDS

It is  cheaper to buy a SIM Card in Hong Kong for both local and international calls/texts than using Philippine roaming service.

Prepaid CSL SIM Cards are available in 7-Eleven , Circle C, Chunking Mansion, Mirador Mansion, TST and World Wide House in Central  for those planning to use a local SIM card at around 50HKD each.

I bought mine at World Wide House for 50hkd. At that time SMART has a promo for sim cards but can only be availed after 3 days so I beg off ‘coz I will be home by the time it would be activated:-)
