"Hongkong citizens donīt have..." Hong Kong Off The Beaten Path Tip by smoox

Hong Kong Off The Beaten Path: 516 reviews and 710 photos


Hongkong citizens don´t have much space - highrises with small apartments are the only way to accommodate millions of people. Those skyscrapers spread out and are even built up the hills.
The 'Midlevels' on the Kowloon side of Victoria Island are well worth visiting. There wasn´t much room for streets, forget about public transport - so they have built an incredibly long escalator with stops on different levels. In the morning, the escalators will run down only, in the late afternoon, up only.
