The shopping along the way is stalled with products that you probably do not intend to trade.The proximity to an excellent restaurant scene makes it worth the steep hill.

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
