3D2N is quite a rush. Basically, what are you there for? Food, shopping or sightseeing?

Since it's your first time there, i would suggest you go to Mongkok on your first day. If you are an avid shopper, you can shop till you drop. If you are into food, plenty of restro there. Sightseeing ... everywhere is a sight!

Day 2: The peak would be at HK Island, so limit your activities there. Causeway Bay, Central would be good places to go. Try taking the ferry from Kowloon to HK Island. It's much cheaper and a good experience. View from the harbour is fantastic as well!!! Hmm ... some places to note .. LKF, SOHO, Times Square, IFC, Mid-Level Escalator!! Good luck with the view on the Peak....

Day 3: Morning go to HK/Kowloon Station to check in lor ...... after that, can explore Elements, Citigate. Basically do last minute shopping.

the first time i went to hk it was 3D2N.

reach hotel at TST area at around 2pm went for lunch then walked to avenue of stars.
that time there was this teddy bear kingdom at a shopping mall near the avenue of stars. but last year when i went back, it was already closed.
then went to mong kok on the first night.

second day shopped around the TST area, at night return to mong kok to shop again.

third day did nothing much but only shopped and eat around hotel area.

basically it was a shopping trip more than sight-seeing.

this year will be going again but giving a miss to all the theme parks coz went there last year already.

so will be going to the Peak, avenue of stars night show (missed it the previous times), the big buddha at lantau island, tai-o, citigate, macau, some train museum (brother wants to go one), etc.

haven't plan finish yet coz it'd be a sight-seeing more than shopping trip.

Yes, the big buddha is a must see as a tourist! but 3D2N is too short for it ... especially on the 1st trip i feel.

Was told there's American steak place at TST East. Forgot name of the place. The building faces the esplanade. Supposed to be better than Morton's.
