Hi Joyce and Pong,
It can indeed be quite a challenge to pick the right pass. You can calculate the most economical choice in detail, but looking at your itinerary, I would recommend to consider this combination of passes:
1. A 5-day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass for 2 adults, with free travel days on day 1, 6, 8, 9, 11. See here for details and prices for Hong Kong (and don't forget the promo codes for a discount).
2. Two Jungfrau VIP Passes for day 3, 4, 5. You will get a discount on this pass because you already have a Swiss Flexi Pass.
This combination will get you free traveling on the 5 mentioned days (the longer trips), free traveling in most of the Jungfrau Region, and 50% discounted traveling on the remaining days.
Another option would be a 15-day Swiss Saver Pass and no other pass. I think the first option will be cheaper, but you'd need to do the math to be sure.
You have composed a great itinerary I think. One thing I noticed is your day 4: Interlaken and Grindelwald are, in my opinion, not interesting enough as a day trip destination. Their surroundings is what makes them attractive. It's great to spend some time there hunting for souvenirs after returning from a hiking trip, but spending a day on these towns only would be a waste, especially since the VIP Pass could get you to more beautiful places at no cost (e.g. Schynige Platte or First).
I hope this helps. Enjoy your stay!
