I found a brilliant deal on www.asiarooms.com,

we stayed in the ymca sailsbury in Kowloon. We had a lovely room overlooking hong kong harbour & you could have literally taken a postcard photo from our room!! it was comfortable, spacious & clean. Also very near the ferry terminal to get to hong kong which only took a a couple of minutes!

i really recommend going up Victoria peak on the tram, Its the steepest tram in the world, it was cool & great scenery from the top!!

Another vote for YMCA Sailsbury at Tsim Sha Tsui, it is a good choice. Don't be misled by the name, it is not a YMCA hostel, but a 4-star hotel with good accessibility and relatively comfortable rooms at reasonable price.

The Peak is a must. Other suggestions: Ocean Park, Stanley Market, Temple Street night bazaar, Wetland Park for wild birds, Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront evening lazar show, Hollywood Road antiques, Lan Kwai Fong for happy hours, Star Ferry, Cheung Chau or Lamma or Sai Kung seafood, etc etc etc

Depends on your budget. As well as what has been suggested, consider going to the Museum of the history of Hong Kong. It will give you a great understanding of the background of the place, Have fun!

i agree with flanneur about the museum of history. it's so elaborate that despite being from chicago which has some of the best museums in the world, hk museum of history is one of my favs. i'd recommend going there during the beginning of your trip so you'll have more of an appreciation and understanding for the rest of your visit.
