Found this guide helpful

HongKong is simply heaven of everything. Most of people making trip to HongKong to enjoy the paradise of food, shopping, toys, massage, luxury merchants, nightlife, entertainment at all day and night long. Don't you want to experience it yourself? I've been to HongKong since Yr1988, my visitation to HK is for leisure to business to retreat.... Well, to the 1st timer visitation, you do need a tour guide like me... Let's get to action! To enjoy the above; choose to stay in Kowloon city.... Here's a simple DIY itinerary for you.... Day 1:> Arrival at airport, get a taste of the HK people style (talk fast, non-stop)> Grab the take-away HK made dim sum (at the nearby McD outlet) and ease your stomach with HK delights.> Take the train to the Kowloon city. (Only 30mins) avoid the jam!> Check-in hotel, walk the busy-bee street, to get familiar within your neighborhood.> Great food cafeteria or restaurant always display their best article blog by the media. You can try it out!> There are great night markets around; Prince Street, Sai Yong Choi Street at Mongkok, Ladies Night market at Yau Ma Tei, Tsim Tsa Tsui Market (nearby mosque)...> Drop by to watch the local singing opera along Nathan Road (next to a temple)...> Walk 'till you drop from Tsim Tsa Tsui (along Nathan Road) to the end road of Yau Ma Tei street..... Day 2:> After breakfast, visit to the Sham Shui Po, for the cheapest gadgets in town.... (Phone accessories, hiking needs, electronics gadgets, inspector gadgets (spy stuff), music accessories...etc) Always Bargain! Bargain! and Bargain!> Opposite McD (go across the main street behind), there're many Toys wholesaler shops...> Visit the biggest electronics mall in town, you'll faint! Computers wholesale and Games World (4-storeys) The following hours, visit to the Tsim Tsa Tsui Arena of Stars to witness the sunset and the lights up of the HongKong Island across the river bank.... The mini Shanghai scenery.... The prints of hand and foot of HongKong stars like Jackie Chan, Samo Hung and more... The sea breeze and witnessing the HK oldest shipyard floating around... Do take a photo... It's the symbol of HK.... Try out the night snacks along Tsim Tsa Tsui street; egg roll pancake, fried squids, fish balls stick, fried pork intestines, and many more.... Day 3: Visit to HongKong island, Central in morning and noon, best shopping for branded goods and luxuries, nightlife at Lan Kwai Fong street (pub and bistro street), Wan Chai for food, Main shopping malls (I.e. Sogo, Isetan, Times Square, and many more....). Take a tram to The Peak to witness the whole city of Hong Kong at glance. Best view at 6:30pm Other options: Disneyland, Ocean Wet & Dry Park, 360 Ngong Ping Shan.. Hope you enjoy your DIY trip in 3 days.... Just not enough....
