Hong Kong City-Break
We arrived in Hong Kong during the September/October 2014 protests, which made things a little more interesting... Many things are cheaper in HK, and cheaper knock offs are easy to find! There are many sites to see day and night - Victoria Peak at sunset is a highlight of any trip! Excellent bars and nightclubs, such as Ozone. Transport on the MTR is all you need to get around, and the Octopus card makes it even easier. An excellent location for a city break!
Insider Tip:Most people speak at least basic English, but don't expect it from everyone (after all, it isn't an English-speaking country). It's no big deal though, I managed to get by on my own. I did have a friend with me at times who can speak fluent Cantonese, but a little knowledge of the language would make some things a little easier.
