Spent yesterday and the last few hours wondering around the town here, from what I've seen so far the city is all office buildings on top of air conditioned malls on top of starbucks on top of starbucks.  Cheapest beer I've seen is about $4, and that's from a store.  If you're into shopping this seems like the best place in asia, though I haven't been to Hong Kong yet.  I like the city as a place to live, very clean and easy to get around, but it's not a very fun travel destination for me. 
Hung out in Chinatown all of yesterday looking for a cell phone, found a couple used ones for about $50, still deciding whether to go back and buy one.  Chinatown was interesting...it is a clean version of China.  Hard to imagine China with no spitting, clean uncrowded streets, no jaywalking, and only about 20% of the people smoking instead of 90%, but this is it. 
Was thinking of staying a couple more days here, but now I'm planning on leaving tomorrow for Malaysia.
