    Lol, Hong Kong is the only country I actually feel times went very slow... In a way that my 5 days holiday felt like 2 weeks, I.e. It's tiring. Prefer Japan :p

    I love it too. I hear they are giving away free one way tickets to China if you visit certain book shops.

    With young children, I normally need a Holiday from my Holiday

    Last year was great though 5 days break from work, Family Holiday then 5 days to wind down again before returning to work...perfect

    School back today so had to set the alarm for the first time in 8 weeks :confused:

    We don't often go away for hols - having a menagerie of pets - but even a day at the beach makes me jump on realestate.com as I crave to move back beachside ... if only I could have 5 acres in the middle of town backing onto the beach ... :D

    I went to HK 35 years ago with my parents for a week and loved it.

    We are planning on a two night stay to break the trip to Europe (early September). Can you recommend things to see on such a short stay?

    We are into history and museums more than dinner and shows.

    Going to HK for history and museums? That would be hard.... :confused:
    How about House of the Dancing Water in Macau?

    Book your next trip now. I always find the planning stage fun - I love having a trip to look forward too.

    Cheers

    Hehe.

    HK is pretty full on, and I prefer Japan, but it's pretty tiring in Tokyo as well.

    Indeed, I prefer Kyoto over Tokyo. Nicer pace. Tokyo is a huge, busy city. I do like how I mistook an adult store in Akihabara for an anime store.

    When we visit HK I said to hubby "this feels like the ugly version of Tokyo." :rolleyes:

    Hehe, I think we wandered into the same one.
    DVD's, cute little skirts and uniforms - and creepy middle aged men, hmm...

    Maybe lol... got in and I saw a brand of male product... Tenga I think? Among other pink cute stuff. Wondering if I saw what I thought I saw, dismissed it. Went one level, more of stuff. By the next level I thought.... yep. Not anime store. OUT!

    Yes I used to stay at TST Marco Polo too when I was a kid. Probably one of my favourite hotels back then. Although of late Ritz Carlton has really topped it.

    I'd prefer Japan over Hong Kong if I didn't speak either language.
