Walks…….Xpresscalators..

Hong Kong is a quagmire of walks…indoors, outdoors, overheads, subterranean….  Two of my favourites are:

  1. Langham Place Mall, Mong Kok, Kowloon. ….The feel of being zapped into space in this case the Digital Sky ‘powder blue with white puffs’ on 13th level via escalators. The first Xpresscalator is 83m from level 4 to the 8th and second Xpresscalator, through the spiral, unique corkscrew design, from the 9th to 12th level. (Take a lift from 11th to 13th level).

2. For an exhilarating stretched out experience the longest outdoor escalator, the Central Mid-level escalator, is the perfect antidote for a mind-numbing day. This 800 metres long with vertical climb of 135 metres along with being a transport system is also a tourist attraction with restaurants, bars, kinky shops, sneaky alleys and parlours en route. There is an entrance and exit on each road it passes.
