Hong Kong Central and Mid-Level

What would they do with snow?

The central and mid-level escalators were constructed 20 years ago to allow people to commute up and down Hong Kong’s steep hills. There will be more pictures taken from on and around the escalator route in my next three Hong Kong posts.

We decided that riding the escalators would be a good way to see some of the city, but only rode them up. Finding our way down was a little more problematic and less photogenic:

Shortly after this underpass we found the Hong Kong Zoo and Botanic Garden, but between the low light and my urban fatigue, I didn’t take any photos!

In a sea of modern high rises, it is the smaller, more architecturally interesting buildings that stand out.
