There will never be a boring time in Hong Kong. There is so much to do that you will find it hard to see everything to fit into just 7 days.
On the way to your hotel from the airport stop on Lantau Island taking the Ngong Ping 360 cable car to the top to see a 360 degree view of the city. Visit the Po Lin Monastery and have a vegetarian lunch prepared by the monks and climb 268 steps to see the seated Buddha, the largest in the world.

Shop at Tsrm Sha Tsui where there are malls, designer stores, and many restaurants. The Museum of Art houses fine art from China in 14,000 exhibits and is nearby. The Cultural Center offers concerts and dance recitals. At night make sure to be downtown at 8 p.m. to see the laser lights bounce from building to building in the Symphony of Lights.
Visit Hong Kong Heritage Museum where there are time tunnels that connect you with ancient to modern time. The Science Museum has 500 exhibits where you can actually participate in experiments. Both are closed on Tuesday but are free on Wednesday. Spend the evening at Lan Kwai Fong where nightclubs and restaurants are open late.
Stanley Village is a seaside town with several historical sites and a great open air market. The restaurants are great and see the Tin Hau temple on the beach that was built to honor the goddess of the sea. Spend the afternoon at Ocean Park and Waterworld where you can see ocean life, shows, and play in the water park. Go to a dim sum restaurant (many can be found all over town) where you make selections from bowls of food being wheeled around on carts by waitresses.
With all the delicious varieties, you will not have a problem eating until you are full.
Visit the Zoo and botanical gardens to see animals in open environments. Ride the cable car to Victoria Park to see stunning views of the city and eat at a restaurant at the top. Don't forget to ride the Star Ferry that runs between Kowloon and Hong Kong Island to see the junks and sanpans.
Visit temples in the city including Man Mo, the god of literature temple. Wong Tai is a Taoist temple in red and gold that is dedicated to a healer. Fortune tellers can read faces and palms there, but be sure to find one who can speak English.
Finish shopping in the many shopping areas of Hong Kong or visit the Hong Kong Disneyworld.
You will always find something to do on your vacation in Hong Kong and will have to rest once you get home.
