Vacation Planning: A Clash of Expectations

As you know, the Asia Vu family is planning a short trip to Hong Kong during the Lunar New Year Holiday, and MsCaroline has been busily planning the itinerary
Last night, however, I learned that my vision of the ideal trip and the vision shared by MrL and Son#2 are somewhat different. And by 'somewhat different,' I mean 'on a different planet.'
Now, I will be the first person to say that you can't take your 15-year-old son to Hong Kong without making some allowances for varying ages, tastes, and interests. But when I saw what he was showing his father on the internet (damn you, YouTube), I realized just how wide the gap was going to be.
While I was envisioning something along the lines of this:

|Afternoon Tea At the Peninsula, via|

Here's what MrL and his offspring have in mind:
|Bungy jumping off the Macau Tower|
|skywalking off the Macau Tower|
I imagine we'll end up compromising, but God only knows what that's going to look like.
