I am totally a sci-fi (heck, even science itself), comic, video game, etc fan.
Everything that is considered "geeky"
Now, I will be visiting HK with the wife for 3 days, I think she wants to meet some of her college friends for lunch.
Since it will be a girl thing, I am thinking I can use this time to check out some cool techy/sci-fi type stuff.
So are there any:
Video arcades, or comic stores, or sci-fi type place I can go to and check out?
Of course, Tokyo would be the dream place, but hopefully HK will have something
This is a good topic, and hopefully I can build on it.
Is there a section of Hong Kong like Akihabara in Tokyo? Kind of a place to check out the latest and possibly greatest in electronics?
Not exactly the same, but for computer and electronic components, you can go to the connected Golden Computer Shopping Center & Golden Computer Shopping Arcade in Sham Shui Po. Right off the MTR, exit D2.
When abouts are you going? I guess this is either too late for 2011 or too early for 2012, but every year HK hosts an awesome Anime-comic game fair in July at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre in Wan Chai:
sard: there are also plenty of video arcades if you're into that sort of thing. They have every sort of game - what was interesting a few years ago when I was there is an online video game using cards that get automagically recognised it seemed like Magic: the gathering crossed with tabletop wargaming.
I'm there the week before you - leave on 11/28 - so if I see any I'll post the whereabouts on here.
