Hong Kong - 3 full days, 4 nights

Jump to last reply

We will arrive at about 5 p.m. from Kuala Lumpur, so we will have that evening, plus the following three days and nights before we return to the USA. Although we appreciate nature/parks/views, and don't want to miss the best of those, we are primarily urban people*, and we have never been to Asia before, let alone Hong Kong. This will be at the end of 2-1/2 weeks in Hanoi-Hue-HoiAn-Saigon-Siem Reap.

* We like to wander, we love markets, and poking around small shops, although we don't actually buy much, like to eat in local places, even local "joints", not the "hottest restaurant in town". Our idea of a lovely day in London for example - start at Spitalfield's or Camdentown, then lunch (Giraffe for example), Portobello Road, stroll through Kensington Gardens and up Embassy Row, stop for a cup of tea and a snack, rest, dinner/theater).

We're not really museum people, although we like living museums (Willamsburg) and historical museums (Tenement Museum). Our favorite thing in the Louvre is the Code of Hammurabi and our favorite thing in the British Museum is the Rosetta Stone.

We are staying at the Salisbury Y.

So, Star Ferry, Victoria Peak, what else must a first-timer see and do? (oh, and I am deathly afraid of birds, but only when they're actually flapping their wings -- are the birds at the bird market in cages? I would never ever visit an aviary LOL)
