Hong Kong Island, Hong Kong (SAR)
Temple Street market is a great place for cheap food and a relaxed atmosphere amongst tacky yet beautiful souvenirs, head to Kowloon side and get off at Jordan Station, cant miss it! Bubba Gumps on Victoria Peak is good food and good views over HK and buy an Octopus card for travellign if you are there for more than a day or two, you can use it on ferries, buses and the MTR.

When arriving at the Hong Kong Airport do not take a plain clothes (non certified) taxi. The normal taxis are much cheaper and do not try to rip you off. The plain clothes taxi guys are only trying to find gullible tourists to charge non-chines prices.

Lamma Island, Hong Kong (SAR)
If you find yourself in Hong Kong and are eager to take a ferry to an outlying island, a trek to Lamma Island is definitely worth the ferry fare. You can rent a bike from one of the local bike shops and explore the paths (bonus: no cars on the island!). Have a bite to eat at the Bookworm Cafe...reflect at one of the small temples...go to Power Station Beach for Saturday beach volley ball, or if you are lucky, a beach rave at night. Take in the atmosphere, not the view of the power station towers :)

Central District, Hong Kong (SAR)
Ahh, THE Hong Kong experience. Though Hong Kong can be a bit hazy, it’s still worth it to head up to the Peak to get a panoramic view of the city. It’s not the tallest point in HK, but the new multi-story tall observation tower bumps up the viewing height a few more hundred metres. There’s an extra fee of $20HKD to get up to the observation tower beyond the cost of the tram ride, but definitely you get a better view. It’s a totally different experience at night so you may want to factor in two visits – or failing that, I’d more recommend going at night than during the day. If you have plenty of time, allow enough time to go on some of the peak trails that weave around the mountain top. Some of the circuits can take a few hours to complete.

Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong (SAR)
I remember taking this ferry when I was younger with my grandmother, and it was a great experience to ride the ferry again. This is like a HK institution. The Ferry goes from Tsim Sha Tsui over to Central or vice versa, and the whole ride is pretty quick. You get a great view of the harbour from both ends and sure beats sitting underground in the metro. Highly recommended to try at least once –more so if you’re staying at the Marco Polo hotel as it lets out right outside the hotel :p
