    Great list you got there. Actually, I’ve done all those activities when I visited the place last December and I am proud to say that Hong Kong nightlife is really the best! I even bought a lucky gem bracelet at Temple Street Night Market. However, I think, you missed something. You forgot to include bar hopping and partying till dawn at Play Club events. =)
