Hong Kong

street in Hong Kong surrounded by skyscrapters

We are in Hong Kong on a six day layover on our way to India. It is hot and humid, but we will venture out anyway and do our usual, casual wandering.

Hong Kong is on very mountainous land, so the streets are steep and every inch of land is valuable. The city is a forest of skyscrapers and all the alley ways are being used as retail space.

escalator and stairs

The coolest thing is the elevated escalator and stairs that makes it easy to get up the hill. This is only a block away from our hotel. During morning commute time, the escalator runs down the hill so that people can get to work. The rest of the day it runs up the hill. We walked down the hill on the street level and I thought “ugh, all these steps have to be retraced up the hill to get back to the hotel.” No! It was quick and easy to get back.

We haven’t done anything particularly touristy, yet. Just went in search of a pharmacy to shop for things we cannot find in Shanghai, ate food, and sweated a lot.
