Specifically Hong Kong: A starter guide

A quick summary of ideas you might search on for your trip to Hong Kong

Having in Hong Kong for more than 10 years, I'm always asked about Hong Kong, especially for those visiting or passing through. And of course the first thing people will mention is Dim Sum, the second might be Lan Kwai Fong for night life, and the third, Victoria Peak.

From there, there's taking the ferry across the harbor from Hong Kong Island to Tsim Tsa Tsui and doing the walk of the stars. Want to take a day trip, you can go see the Big Buddha or you can go to Macau and hit the casinos, see a show, shop, and eat buffets or fine dining that will be just a good and likely less expensive than Vegas counterparts.

Want to shop souvenirs and T-shirts? Check out the Ladies Market, or better yet, hike over HK Island from Quarry Bay over to Repulse Bay and end up in Stanley Market which is just as fun and also by the water.

There are tons of things and places to do in Hong Kong, and everything is so close together that you can easily hop from place to place via walking, tram, metro or taxi. Food, to city life, to shopping, and let's not forget HK has nature and culture, there's something for everybody, but here's a list of things I think are specifically Hong Kong to me:
