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)

It will be good to take your photograph at the bottom of the steps next to Pottinger Hotel. You can then use the mid level travellator and then walk down.

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.

The costume markets are worth a visit when in the area. The street itself is very attractive and quite photogenic and the old prison at the very top of the street is also worth a visit. I would not recommend buying anything though, most things...More

This unevenly paved and steep alley is great fun at any time, but for true hilarity wait until after rain. I positioned myself on the stairs that run parallel with the cobbles and watched many pedestrians waving their arms as they battled to regain lost...More

When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies
