It's okay if you're using the escalators to go somewhere, otherwise it's not worth making your way there purposely to see the escalator.

We went from the bottom right to the top, then wondered what to do as there didn't seem much to do up there (especially as it was raining), so caught a little minibus back down to the bottom, which was a fun ride!

We took the Escalator from Des Voeux Road, to visit the antique shops on Hollywood Road, and we probably arrived much quicker than any taxi could have done the trip.

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
