Is there more to shopping in Hong Kong than just brand-name stores?

Yes. In fact, the brand name stores are expensive in comparison with local retailers, like Fortress. The reason? Brand names appeal to the Mainland Chinese who flock to Hong Kong to find goods that will demonstrate their wealth. It is a case of conspicuous consumption and that is what keeps the Gucci, YSL, Dior, Armani, Louis Vuitton stores and their like in business. It is certainly not local HK buyers who are too canny.

Authentic cuisine from all over the world at all price ranges -- from street style to high cuisine. For example: you can get cheap, basic dim sum at Circle K or you can find a fancy, high-end Cantonese restaurant (usually in the same block on the same street).

Got to take lovely pictures at the Avenue of Stars by going there at 7am. After taking lots of pix, took the Star Ferry and went to HK Island. Walked to the Peak Tram station and before 9am there are no queues to purchase the tickets and boarding the Tram. Went down from the Peak at 9.50am and was the queues were already long as the many tour buses arriving at the station.
Enjoyed Disneyland by going before noon and buying tickets in town instead of at the ticket counter.

Shopping in Hong Kong really depends on your taste. There are lots of huge malls, night markets, boutiques and department stores. There is no GST/VAT in Hong Kong, which meant that certain items, especially cosmetics, were comparably cheaper. However, most European brands are more expensive than Europe so it really depends on your taste and what you're after.

Eat with a big group! It's essential for enjoying Chinese dining. That will make it possible to order a lot of dishes at once, and it's all made for sharing.

Trams and buses cheap. One price for the fare, though you need to have the exact fare as change can't be given. MTR was a lot more expensive in comparison. I also didn't feel the MTR was as comfortable as the bus and tram

The Avenue of Stars and the top floor bar of the ICC Building. Go for the Sky100 bar if you want a nice setting or for Ozone if you want a hip, trendy bar.

Yes. The food is amazing. Do your research first and find some great places. We loved Hutong and Mott32 for fine dining and Chili Fagara for a real spicy Sichuan style meal.

You've seen it in Bruce Lee flicks and in many a Hollywood cinematic backdrop. It's a great mash up of the old and the new existing peacefully, without it coming across as odd. Watch out for leaky air-conditioning units as you walk but there's a great story behind each neighbourhood.

Take your time and don't be impatient. Take advantage of the raised walkways that connect many building in Central. They are covered and far above wheeled traffic. There are signs, but I found them minimally useful. Use the MTR to get you to the general area you want to walk in then start from there.

Dancing at the night clubs, getting a foot or body massage, relaxing with cocktails, and shopping for bargains. That's Hong Kong.

We found Hong Kong Island to be have many places where ordinary working people live and eat. As we have no Cantonese is was a matter of asking if there was a menu in English or frankly just pointing.

The place is too crowded and thus hygiene in most places are compromised. Mongkok streets need a clean up. Hopefully the people should be more helpful to visitors and speak more English. More public toilets should be provided. Menus outside restaurants should have English writings too. The staffs at China Ferry Terminal should be more friendly and give clearer instructions.
