    With half a day in Hong Kong, what are the things I 'must see'?

    For cheap shopping (and lots of it) head to Mongkok (accessible from the train) - it is a mix of street markets and lots of stores. Great for shoes, bags, electronics, etc. I love Stanley but if you really only have a half a day you may struggle to get out there and back while fitting in anything else major. The Peak is a fanastic place to get a good view of the city and beyond. If you are on a budget, here is a selection of some free things to do in the city http://travelinsider.qantas.com.au/ask_the_crew_hong_kong_on_the_house.htm over 10 years ago

    What are the great things to see in Lisbon?

    I think Lisbon's Barrio Alto is a special area - there is a very artsy, laid back vibe with great little cafes and bars. Stuff tends to kick off quite late (many shops don't even open until midday) and the area really starts to come alive around 8pm. http://travelinsider.qantas.com.au/lisbon_the_high_life.htm over 10 years ago

    What are the best things to see/do in and around Darwin?

    Here is a guide to Darwin city that you may find helpful. My favs include the Mindil Beach Markets, and Hanuman restaurant (on Mitchell Street, where most of the dining/nightlife in the city is). http://travelinsider.qantas.com.au/darwin_singing_in_the_rain.htm I normally prefer self-drives but to get the best of the parks I would recommend a tour - if you are self driving rent a good 4x4 as a lot of the good spots (like Jim Jim) are a bit off the beaten track and require some serious offroading skills! over 10 years ago

    What are some interesting things to do in NY? I'm not interested in the normal sites, I would prefer to submerse myself in its culture.

    I would check out the High Line - a disused railway track converted into a public space spanning 22 city blocks and connecting three neighbourhoods -the Meatpacking District, Hell’s Kitchen and West Chelsea http://travelinsider.qantas.com.au/new_york_high_line.htm Enjoy! over 10 years ago
