In Denmark (if you guys are foodies), book in NOW to get a table (if you are lucky) at Noma (2 star Michelin restaurant) or Restaurant Geranium (3 star Michelin restaurant) Both restaurants serve "the new Scandinavian" cuisine.  If you take the trip to Oslo, Norway there is another 3 star Scandinavian Cuisine restaurant there - Maaemo - but be warned - these places are expensive, but will probably provide a culinary experience you have not had before. :)

 

Copenhagen's biggest attraction is probably Tivoli and the Little Mermaid, but Christiania might be interesting for its weirdness.. 

 

Amsterdam has the weirdest tourist attraction of all of the cities you have mentioned, if you ask me: The red light district. Seeing families with the children, mom, dad and the grandparents walk through the hooker district was a weird experience.. :D

 

BTW: My biggest tip for traveling these days is to use Tripadvisor to find good places to eat, has worked really well most anywhere we have been traveling! Having the app on your phone (given that you have gotten yourself a local SIM, so you don't go broke when you come home and get the phone bill) really is a great way to find a good place to eat when you find out you are about to starve to death :) Has made sure we have avoided the biggest turist traps and have found some real gems. :)

Amsterdam = Heineken Factory;

 

http://www.amsterdam.info/heineken-experience/

 

It's a lot more expensive than when I went there 18 years ago... Hearing the Dutch explain why pouring a beer with a huge head is important for "trapping the flavour bubbles inside.."

sir1963:

 

 

 

 

 

Hong Kong - Big Buddah , Any/all of the night markets, Avenue of Stars, Symphony of lights, Ocean Park , Disney (its small though), "The peak"/Victoria Peak.

 

You can get a metro pass or what ever they call it at the HK airport that is for visitors only, it MUCH cheaper and the HK metro is excellent.

 

One warning about HK, they don't have milk, tea and coffee are made with sweetened condensed milk, its disgusting!!!!!!

 

 

Ocean Park is great. We went in Feb and had a great time.  

 

You can get a decent coffee in some places. Top of the Langham shopping mall is good for flat whites.

 

If like good beer, check out The Ale Project in Mongkok (Kowloon side) good selection of beers from HK & abroad (they had some garage project on tap when I was there) - I see they have the Founders Breakfast Stout on tap currently too - awesome beer.

For the Peak in Hong Kong either take the bus (number 15) up or down and the Tram the other direction.  Pick a weekday and avoid big queues.
