Hong-Kong, walking around Central, Mid levels Escalators and Hollywood road
July 21, 2017
we started our walking from Central MTR station. we crossed Queen's Road and walked up the stairs to the Mid -levels Escalators. It is the world's longest outdoor covered escalator system, stretching over 800 meters and rising 135 meters through the streets of a steep hillside linking these districts of Hong Kong Island. There are lots of signs to the mid -level Escalators so you can't miss it.
we stated going up in the escalators looking around at the small shops, allays and the people. The Escalators divided to sections, so you can get off them, walk around go into shops, restaurants, galleries , and go back to another section.
We got off the escalators around Hollywood Road. There are a lot of shops vary from tiny shops selling souvenirs to galleries selling valuable Chinese art.
We Entered the Man Mo Temple at 126 Hollywood Road. It was built in 1847 in honor of the Man Literature and War God (Mo). It is full of atmosphere and there are beautiful incense-hanging coils of the ceiling filling the space with strong aromatic aromas.
We continued walking along Hollywood Road and we arrive at SoHo, one of Hong Kong's most popular hangouts. It offers nice cafes and bars with sidewalk seating.
