    depends on what you mean by must see and must do

    i can tell you, MUST EAT

    the last time i went i couldn't keep my hands off the goose

    and the dim sum is to die for, if you get the good places

    anyhow, get the hong kong tourism board handout, there is one pink booklet, don't know if color changed yet, which has a rough map and directions to all the prominent attractions in hong kong.

    hong kong is a very interesting place, much like singapore. it is urban, and it also has its raw side. i wish i can expore the raw side but then sadly everytime i go, i go with my parents, and i don't think it is fair to torture them to climb hills with me.

    for the more touristic spots - victoria harbour, avenue of stars at night (there's a light show there, which frankly isn't much but if you're there, why not drop by; during the night there are also loads of performers which are pretty decent!), victoria peak view, lantau island (along with po ling monastery there), disneyland is commercialised but if you have kids.. ocean park is well worth your money compared to disneyland if you ask me, unless you really don't like theme park rides or oceanic themed exhibitions. iirc, if you're into madame tussad's, victoria peak also has one branch.

    for the wilder side, hong kong's beaches are extremely beautiful albeit hard to access, and i think there is also tai-o, nicknamed little venice because it is a fishing village. seems a bit commercialised though, probably because of huge groups of tourists going. the mountains and views, though probably offering a hard walk would be worth it too, i hope to go there during summer if i have the time.. to see this side, you can look at chun lo's gallery here, good stuff. a lot more planning is needed if you take this path though, and probably less time for gorgeous food.

    some other good hong kong galleries, if you are going there for photography, are johopo and vj spectra on flickr.

    it is my view that if you have the time might as well drop by macau too, not to gamble, but to explore the place, i loved the feel when i was there, also it seemed quite safe to me during the daytime, despite the numerous back alleys i walked through with my tripod and camera bag in full view.

    If you have time, take a one hour ferry ride and come over to Macau to see the St. Paul's ruins and visit the Venetian.
    Pictures always should have a special story behind it or a special meaning to the photographer.

    Food is good, dessert is good too. But i find them a little pricey and the service not up to mark. Most 茶餐厅 give better service than them.

    If you are into keeping aquarium fish, Tong Choi Street stretch near Prince Edward MTR is a must go place in HongKong.

    I would like to recommend to a visit to HK Technology University in Clear Water Bay. This U is so beautiful on top of mountain and over looking the clear water bay.
    [To go there: MRT to Lam Tin / Chai Fong; then take direct bus there].
    Here is the different between this U and our NUS.
    Make a simple survey on most Singaporean, when DID THEY FIRST STEP into NUS ? Most answer will be when they doing their Orientation!
    In this HK technology U, is also a Tourist area for HK; u can see parents bring their kids there and tell them "Son, this is where I want You to have your education"
    Vs In NUS; every car park is "NO VISITOR" and no easy access and no ......

    Got it ?

    Thanks/
