Have been to Hong Kong many times and never knew about these escalators!! They are leg savers and take you past many great bars and restaurants in Hong Kong.

with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open
late into the night and there just happens to be a
street party every weekend. Although everything seems
to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of
