Having been here since Sunday, I'm starting to feel like I've run out of things to do in HK. What shoukd I do tomorrow?
Thus far, I have:
-taken the funicular railway to Victoria Peak and walked the park there
-taken the Star Ferry across to Kowloon for skyline viewing (day and night)
-walked the Avenue of the Stars/saw statue of Bruce Lee
-eaten Indian food at Chunking Mansions
-taken the cable car to Ngong Ping on Lantau and climbed up to the big Buddha
-eaten snake soup at that restaurant famous for it
-eaten the brisket at Kau Kee and dim sum at an acclaimed place
-taken that incredible series of escalators up the mountain
-shopped at the Temple Street Market (and a bunch of others)
-taken the bus to Stanley and drank a coconut on the beach
-taken the ferry to Macau, where I saw the historic sites downtown, got lost in some off-the-beaten-path neighborhoods, spent some time at the Grand Lisboa, ate Portuguese food and saw the panda on Coloane
-visited the Chi Lin nunnery and their beautiful park next door
So what should I do next? I'd like to do something that's not too physically demanding, as a week in this heat has wiped me out (I've sweated thru my shirt 10+ times since arriving), and preferably not entirely outdoors (as there's a decent chance of rain tomorrow). I'll take suggestions big and small, from 'eat this here' to 'see this subtitled movie here' to a whole day activity.
Some relevant limitations: I don't have a visa for the mainland, so no Shenzen or Guangzhou. I'd be open to returning to Macau (loved it there) or checking out the New Territories if there are some really good suggestions for what to do there. Cultural things are what I prefer, and definitely no Disneyland or Ocean Park.
Thanks in advance!
