I stayed in Hongkong for a few months for an Internship , It was one of the most memorable experiences of my life professionally and personally. Of the Great Cities around the world , Hongkong is the most unique city that i have been to , It is an extremely modern city with great infrastructure with very strong cultural heritage. In terms of Art , Cinema , Language , Hongkong is a world of its own. Hong Kong has been the inspiration for a lot of novel's and films as well. Smell of Food and the small alleyway's are what characterizes this beautiful city. It is one of the best cities to work and visit. Besides the top spots mentioned below , Hongkong has many modern attractions like theme parks and some really stellar beaches. To make the trip more interesting one could even take a day trip across the border into the mainland and see the difference between two groups of people with similar cultural history but different political systems. It is also a great example of democracy and freedom of thought.
One can easily get around with English for the most part , . Travelling by the MTR and KCR subway is very convenient, Definitely Recommend the Octopus Card , Its a train pass / Debit Card. Driving there is a nightmare since parking is really expensive , Its best to walk and take the train .
Best Place for Dinner and Drinks In the City. This world famous district is home to ton's of restaurants, bars, clubs and shops. A stone throw away from the city's CBD (Which by it self is quite funky) , Ideal to Chill with colleagues and buddies alike. Taking the worlds highest escalator from the train station to get here is a pretty Cool experience.
Probably the most Famous Tourist Attraction in the city , A breathtaking view of the entire city ;) , Great place for Taking pictures of your self and posing.
