1 day in HK Island.
Start from Hong Kong Park, after Man Mo temple; take funicular for Victoria Peak (amazing panorama), and then go to Repulse Bay Beach with Tin Hau temple, Stanley Market and finish at Aberdeen Typhoon Shelter (harbor). - Use the shuttle of the Jumbo Restaurant, is free.
In HK, take the tramway, from North to South of the city just for 2 HKD, 2h in another world, slow and peace.

Leave to KLN from HK; take the ferry from Central ferry pier, 3 HKD, fun in 7 minutes. Go to Ocean Center (the greatest shopping centre of the world), which is just close to the pier on the KLN side, envisage a large wallet!
In Tsim Sha Tsui, you will find these stores of cameras, telephones and tailors, you walk along Nathan Rd to Mong Kok, have a look at the Bird Market and Fish Market.
In Sham Shui Po, electronic products for computer, games for PS2, Nintendo etc. Golden Computer Center.

Hi karlpalmer,

brunohk has given you a very good suggestion of travelling around Hong Kong.

What I would still suggest is visiting Sai Kung (in New Territories), when you love green!

If you're more for pubs & bars, Stanley (in Hong Kong Island) is also a good choice!

About market, you may also love to visit Flower market, which is near to Bird & Fish Markets in Mongkok. (Go there, you can take train to Mong Kok railway station)

Besides visiting panoramic places, you shouldn't miss trying Chinese foods in Hong Kong. Dim Sum can be found nearly in all chinese restaurants in the morning!

Wish you having an enjoyable trip in Hong Kong
