Won't be a mad drinking trip so tourist attractions mainly.

Can't go wrong with the usual things - the peak (queue for the tram is mad, can get an Uber up), best to go there at Dusk. 

Worth heading for a look at the Ladies Market, some decent local restaurants there too - plastic stool type ones. The Big Buddha is good if you're into that sort of thing, there's a cablecar up to it but it was closed last time I went.

I'd start off at the harbour, down in Tsim Sha Tsui, have a look around there skyline there, then jump on the star ferry to central, walk over to Beer Bay for a drink, and back across again and head into Mongkok for a look - it's the busiest part of the city I've found. You can pay by cash but might be worth getting an Octopus card while you're there - pays for all transport and a lot of shops take it too.

Food wise, Dim Dim Sum is a good spot for Dim Sum, Jumbo is a restaurant on a boat, it's a bit kitschy but worth looking into.

If Happy Valley races are on when you're there it's a good way to spend a few hours.

Wooloomooloo bar is worth going to for a few for the view, drinks are expensive, as there are everywhere in HK but worth it.

Have a few days in Paris next week, and time to myself during the day. So anything different to see and do over there other than the obvious 


Eiffel Tower is supposed to be decent. Definitely in the top 3 or 4 towers.

Cheers Paulie, never heard of it must check it LOL

No worries, your hotel should give you a mobile 4G dongle so can't go too far wrong with access to Google maps etc
