    I have travel plans for work coming up and was curious if anyone had any advice on the areas of Hong Kong and Dubai in terms of things I should see and do while I am there?

    I have been to Hong Kong once before and got to see and do alot of the tourist stuff, but getting ideas from others can't hurt. I have never been to Dubai and I will be there for 3 weeks.

    Suggestions and ideas welcome...

    Thanks!

    I've been in both places a few times.

    In Dubai
    - go to the gold and silver markets and stock up on some quality watches, rings, necklaces and jewelry for yourself and friends.
    - do some internet research and find out where the ultra secretive gay nightlife is. If you are lucky you might meet someone who lives there and who is probably some prince in the royal family or politiciam on the DL.
    - check out the ultra luxurious hotels and restaurants
    - there are some excellent places to buy fabric........get the fabric and take it to one of the excellent tailors and have lots of clothes custom made inexpensively.

    In Hong Kong
    - same as above
    - HK has some great restaurants that serve many different types of Chinese food....its not your usual Chinese take out like in the USA.....much better.
    - HK is a very romantic city. Take some boat rides to the outer neighborhoods and enjoy the ride.
