    Lan Kwai Fong is great for a night out - on ladies night I was getting free cocktails all night, and not even cheap crappy ones either, really nice ones!

    Yeah I need to go to Lan Kwai Fong, I was only in HK for the weekend back in April after a trip to Shanghai and Guangzhou. Going back next March though! I think Lan Kwai Fong is the classier bar area, whilst Wan Chai is the seedier bit (lots of dodgy strip clubs, cheap bars, filippino bars etc), it was a hilarious experience!

    Personally, I was there for a fortnight and only just managed to see everything on the list I posted on the first page. And there's nothing on that list that I would say isn;t worth seeing!

    I think a week's a good amount of time - I'm going for a fortnight next March/April and combining it with trips to Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Macau.

    Accommodation is pretty cheap, you can stay in a hostel dorm for about a tenner. I stayed here, which was a really nice clean friendly hostel near the Central district: http://www.yesinn.com/hk/ehostel.htm.

    In April this year it was about 27 degrees, so it'll be a bit hotter by May I think.

    The TSR Asia travel guide give a good introduction to tourism to Hong Kong (Click here)

    Personally my favourite is the Peak. It gives a spectacular view, and has a madame tussauds waxwork musuem.

    The avenue of stars is pretty good as well.

    The Venetian, no doubt. Absolutely amazing there, both the casino and the upstairs with the canals.

    Don't do what me and my silly friend did, we only had 2 full days and were jet lagged so ended up going to bed at 4am each day, getting up at 2pm, and spending about 6 hours out and getting in at 8.

    Pretty much all we did was:
    * A symphony of Lights down at the harbour in the evening
    * Temple Street Night Market
    * Boat tour of harbour (really cheap and worth it).

    We stayed in Kowloon. Anyway do more than we did. Also at the Temple Street Markey be really cheeky with your prices. We paid less than half the asking price for everything we bought. We got like a $280 laser down to like $70 and stuff, just really push it.

    Oh yeah the bus is like 20p no matter how far you go. Also get the bus from the airport it's only like £5 and really easy.
