hi~I'm a HK resident , I've lived here since I was born and I'm now 20 years old.
After reading your passage, it seems that you've experienced why HK is known as " A city that never sleeps". But HK is also named " Shopping Paradise " and " Eating Paradise". Perhaps you haven't discovered that HK is full of shopping malls in EVERY district. And supermarkets/ convenient shops are almost everywhere in HK. We can easily find fashion/brands/food from all over the world in shopping malls/supermarkets. And the quality of the products are highly guaranteed as many shops have "7 days exchange" and some even 28 days. Also, if you have any questions about the quality or price of what you buy/ services, you can just call" Tourist Development Council" ( something like that, I'm not so sure about whether the name is right), and it will look into your case thoroughly and give a reasonable response.

It seems that you haven't tried local food during the trip. And the place you travelled are famous tourist spots , Tsim Sha Tsui or central are full of tourist or foreigners who live in HK, so the lifestyle is realtively more western than other districts, (but there're still many choices of local or asian food) you may not experience how HK people are busy and rush for everything. I don't know you've been to "Soho" in Central, it's famous for cuisines from all over the world.

Above all, I think HK is not so expensive to travel, only if you know which district to stay is cheap, and what to eat. ( local food is cheaper)

I thought what you wrote was from the heart and quite accurate. I have not been to Hong Kong in a few years now. I have been going to Thailand the last 3 years. Though you sure missed the Chinese food there. It was the best I have ever had. From Taiwan style, to Hunan, dim sum or yum cha or tea cakes. I had the best chinese food in my life when I was in Hong Kong and Shenzhen. You hit the hot spots, Museums, Victoria Peak and the bars. There is also Mong Kok for their flea market. The skyline is wonderful, and you described it perfectly. I could see it in my minds eye again. 3 days is a short stay but, you got down to the brass tacks. Nice job.

Yes , hong kong is known as the city never sleep and busy all the time , but i think HK also has a slient side !you can find out the different side of HK in the New Territories area as well ,most of the traditional villages are in that part, for example Lam Tsuen is a very famous traditional place in HK.
