i booked my rtw ticket....and the cheapest option for me is to fly back home via Hong Kong.....so i decided to book 4days there.....can i ask people who travelled to Hong Kong if 4days will be enough time for me to see the main attractions.
4 days is MORE then enough time to see all the main sites in Hong Kong. I did Hong Kong in 48 hours, got all the main sites except Ocean Park. With 4 days you may even consider visiting some of the outlaying islands, spend some time in those quiet fishing villages, obscure temples, etc... Get/Flip through the lonely planet guide for Hong Kong and Macau, it has an itinary for 1 day, 2 days, and 4 day (I think...)
Oh, leave some room in your bags to pick some cheap Chinese antiques.
4 days in Hong Kong is more then enough. The Giant Buddha out on Langtau is a must - that could easily be a full day trip. The funicular up Victoria Peak is also worth it. Forget trying to eat in a restaurant - way too expensive.
I think 4days is enough if u stay within the Hong Kong island and closer to the mainland, Kowloon etc. For its relatively small size, there's actually quite alot of things to do. Or maybe its because i spent too much time shopping and eating so i didnt have the time to check out the outlaying islands which i now regret.
IMHO, Victoria Peak is a must and the Jumbo ship. Tsing Ma bridge is also nice. For partying, Lan Kwai Fong. It has some nice clubs for clean fun partying. The rave parties are also good(without the drugs), but u probably need to be there first to check where they are held. Lastly, I heard that their Disneyland is going to open soon.
Enjoy your time in HK.
I'll throw in a trivia. Before the Sars outbreak, the Hongkong tourism board slogan is:
"Hong Kong will take your breath away."
Disneyland opens on the 12 of September. Star ferry at night is also a must, Stanley is nice to get away from the madness and they do very nice cocktails in some of the bars. You must also try the Dim Sum.
www.hkta.org is a great site for traveling to HK.
