If you are going to visit Disney land, you might be able to visit Po Lin Monastery and the big Budha statue, which is also on Lantau Island, closer to the airport.
There is a new skyrail from Tung Chung station to this statue and monastery, to the village of Ngong Ping (skyrail is called Ngong Ping 360). I think it's on the same MTR line.

Mongkok, Tsim Sha Tsui and Causeway Bay for shopping, if you're into that.

Lan Kwai Fong in Central, and Wanchai for the bars, restaurants and nightlife.

I've been to HK a few times and I think it's one of
the world's most interesting and exciting cities (several
cities comprise HK, actually).

I would be at a loss trying to think of the best thing to
do in a 1/2 day. I guess we each set our priorities where our
interests lie, but I wouldn't waste a day on Disney World
with so many other things to do. Keep your options open.
It's YOUR trip!

One night, a must do is to go to the Temple Street Night Market
in Kowloon. Plan to get there about an hour or so after dark
and stay until..............whenever!

Bird Street is another interesting short side trip. It's
not named "Bird Street", but that's what it's called. Hotel
concierge can advise.

Hi,
Well if you are spending your evenings seeing things around the city like the Peak, and the night markets on the Kowloon side, and the bars in Lan Kwai Fong, you won't see the best part of HK. For the half day that you have, you should take a walking tour of Central, So Ho, and Sheung Wan. There are free guide maps to help you with this route - or you can just take a map and start walking. Once you get away from the regular tourist spots, you can see how the real Hong Konger's live. Spending a half day walking up and down the many many stairs will keep you in shape too. Trust me, I lived there for a year and once you get off the main tourist drags, it's quite exciting.

Evening is a good time to take the Peak tram 'cause you'll get nice views of the city lit up (if the visibility is good). Make sure you do the star ferry 'tour' of the harbour which is dead nice and really cheap, this is also a nice thing to do at night. The best view of Victoria Harbour is from next to the Star Ferry terminal at Kowloon, you can just see skyscrapers stretching along the waterfront in both directions as far as the eye can see.

If you're at all interested in Chinese art, the Hong Kong museum of art, in Kowloon, is well worth an hour or two - particularly the ceramics.
