An interesting “street” that’s basically an old flight of stoney steps that have eroded with time. At the top you have tai kwun, and the bottom, the posh pottinger hotel. Street stalls occupy eveything in between

When you visit Hong Kong, it is a must to go the Pottinger Street, locally known as cobble stone street and walk a mile up hill at 45 degree. Shop there and enjoy the moment while you climbing up and swearing. It is fun.

Stumbled upon this street while looking for a place to have lunch. It was extremely busy as it was lunch hour. Try and eat at one of the stalls off Pottinger Street. There is the world’s longest escalator (Mid-Levels escalators close by)

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
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
