One busy day in Hong Kong Island ?
The below tour is for reference only. It starts and finishes in TST and involves a lot of walking.
More tourism ?
Stanley Market is the place to go for cheap clothes and souvenirs. You won't be alone and the quality is not always high but the choice is wide, prices reasonable (bargain !) and the view on the way is interesting enough. There is even a beach to relax after shopping and a prison if you do not follow the rules ! Take bus 6 ($7.9), 6A ($8.4), 6X ($8.4) or 260 ($10.6) from Exchange Square in Central.
On the way to Stanley, you pass the coastline of Deep Water Bay and Repulse Bay where it is possible to swim. If you plan to stop there, do not pay the full fare from Central.
From Stanley, Bus 73 ($5.8) will bring you to Aberdeen where it is possible to make sampans tour of the floating fishermen's community. An half an hour tour should cost around $50 and this is the only real reason to come here ! If it was not so expensive, you could also eat at one of the floating restaurant... From Aberdeen, bus 7 ($5.3) will bring you back to the Star Ferry in Central.
Another way to spend a good full day would be to go to Ocean Park near Aberdeen. Beside the rides and aquatic shows, it offers great view from the cable car and some culturally interesting exhibits in its Middle Kingdom's section. The cost of $140 is reasonable considering the fun. Take bus 70 ($4.7) from Exchange Square in Central and get off at the first stop after the tunnel).
