  • [Question] Future Hong Kong visit

    This past month i went to Japan for 10 days and had a wonderful and absolute blast visiting one of most beutiful countries. While staying with my friend over in Japan they told me to come back soon and stay longer. Now i am starting to save up for my grand vacation back to Asia in 2011. During this trip, i would spend a full two weeks in Japan and then other week somewhere else in Asia. I really would love to visit Hong Kong and Hong Kong Disneyland. I am asking from the people who have visited Hong Kong what other things that you might recommend doing and how long do you think a good trip to Hong Kong should last. I would also love to visit Taiwan. I am planning to go in the Spring time. Any advice?

    Go to Nathan Road, and walk around Chungking Mansion... better yet stay in one of the mini-hotels inside. You'll feel like you walked into a scene from Blade Runner. Ocean Park is worth a visit since you're probably a theme park fan. There's lot of shopping of course. Have tea in the Peninsula. Go to the top of Victoria. I think a few days in Hong Kong is enough.
    I lived in Taiwan for two years, and while I loved living there, I don't know if I can recommend it as a tourist trip as it is a bit out of the way and China is so much closer to HK with so much to do and see. The one huge highlight is the National Museum built into the side of a mountain. It houses some of the most amazing Chinese artifacts on the planet. It's a must-do if you're a Chinese art fan. Kenting is a nice resort in the south. The Penghu Islands are worth a trip for a little off-the-beaten path excursion. And Taroko Gorge in Hualien is kind of like the Grand Canyon on a smaller scale. There are some interesting temples around the island, but especially in Tainan. But China is close by and offers so much that I would skip Taiwan if you're short on time and money unless you have a reason you really want to go to Taiwan.
