Hong Kong is formed by a set of several islands, one of them being Hong Kong Island, which is where we live. Just opposite is Kawloon Island; it takes only 20 minutes in the subway. Besides the subway, which is called the MTR, public transportation includes the regular buses, the small buses and the "Ding Dings" (same as a tram). The name for the last one is because that is the sound it makes when it starts!
Stanley market is a great place for bargains; althought it is a bit of a tourist trap. You can find from gel packs for your back to large fans to hang on the walls.
