Thankfully I stumbled on this in my Soho day of wandering. I wouldn't go here as a destination, but it's a great tool to get up the hill. About 2/3 the way up is a Mosque that's worth a 5 minute detour to view. What...More

A unique use of escalators to get up the steep hill in Hong Kong. Stop and checkout the shops and cafes along the way to make it more interesting.

The novelty of taking an outside (covered) escalator to get from the bottom of the city hill to the middle of the city is pretty cool; think having escalators in San Francisco. But check it off your list and move on because, at the end...More

This is hardly an interesting attraction, merely an efficient aid to climbing a hill in a city so perhaps unique.

When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies
with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open
late into the night and there just happens to be a
street party every weekend. Although everything seems
to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of
