    A Great Place if You Have Contacts

    I liked Hong Kong because it was active and vibrant and exciting. There was never a dull moment on the city streets. However, I'm definitely sure that I would have had a better time had I known someone who lived in the area to take me around. Sure, there are are guided tours and these can be fun for many people, but I was looking for something a little less artificial. Because I didn't know anyone, I was sort of at the mercy of the more commercial attractions. Not bad, but not great either.

    Insider Tip:If you have a friend, connect with them and have them take you around. If not, do A LOT of research beforehand before you visit Hong Kong.

    Worth a visit

    I really enjoyed my time in hong kong. The city itself has some interesting sights and is very different from the rest of china. Outside the city there is also a lot of interesting places and some good hiking trails. Would recommend hiking to the top of landau peak and visiting the budda on the island.

    hong kong

    hong kong is an amazing city with tunes of things to do and see. have a free day to hike out of kowloonhong kong and see the nature of the island. the museums are also great. by night go to LKF area and just pick one of the barsclubs which you think has the best music.

    Insider Tip:on your first day dont forget to get at the subway an OCTOPUS card which you will use every time in the subway, 7-11, the bus and a lot of other stores. have a great trip.

    Hong Kong.. A true culture of Asia

    Hong Kong is a modern city with lots of contrasts from skyscrapers to green mountains from busy road intersections to beautiful natural parks.. It is a safe city full of vibrant nightlife for youth. It is tourist friendly with state of the art transportation system and many activities and things to do.. You can walk around street markets, go to beaches, try your luck at the casinos in nearby Macau, hike in wild forests, or go up the mountain for a magnificent view of The skyline...

    Insider Tip:If you get lost don't hesitate to ask locals for directions they are more than welcome to help you or even take you there! If you go to temple market or ladies markets be sure to bargain with half the price they start telling you.
