A Twist of Citrus

View Hong Kong in a larger map

I've gotten a lot of advise on what to do during our 8 days in Hong Kong. Here's a list of some of the things we're hoping to do:

  • The Peak – On a nice clear day

  • Temple Street Night Markets – Stop and eat noodles on the street

  • The Light Show – I'm told the best to see it from is Aqua, Felix or Sky Lounge. If you have time, book a restaurant called Hutong for a 7:30pm table. The light show starts at 8pm.

  • The Mid-Level Escalator (Soho) – Jump off where you see cool bars and restaurants

  • Walk up Nathan Road – Lots of sights and Sounds

  • Go out at least one night in Wan Chai

  • Go to Dragon-i for all-you-can-eat dim sum

  • Take the Star Ferry – A beautiful and cheap way to travel

  • Go to the Chi Lin Nunnery – My sources say this is a "must see"

  • Go and see the HSBC building

  • Go to Stanley

  • Visit the Big Buddha

  • Ride on a Junk

  • Go to some of the smaller islands

  • Visit the race track

  • Hike the "Dragon's Back"

  • Macau – The New Vegas

  • Have afternoon tea in the Peninsula Hotel

  • Visit mainland China – Shenzen is the place to go for cheap shopping and a spa treatment

By all means, if you know of anywhere else we should go or anything else we should do, let me know!
