Hello hkchan, welcome to MySwissAlps!

It seems that you have given much thought to your itinerary. It looks fine to me, although a few days are a bit full (e.g. day 2 and 4). An 8-day Swiss Saver Pass for day 2 to 9 would be ideal for your trip. On day 1 you can purchase single tickets for CHF 34 per person. For a detailed pass comparison, please follow these instructions.

Hotel suggestions for the various towns can be found here.
