Western Market, Hong Kong's oldest surviving market building was inaugurated well over a century ago and features
beautiful Edwardian architecture, with red bricks and granite arches.

Nowadays, it is actually a shopping mall, with shops that specialize mainly in arts and crafts, although there are a few good
fabrics shops here too.

The "Central-Mid Levels Escalators" is one of the world's longest escalator systems and one of Hong Kong's "must dos"...
Built in the early 1990s, it was meant to relief the traffic congestion between Mid-Levels and Central, by pedestrianizing the
area, and although it did not fully succeed in doing so, it is certainly better than nothing...

You can use the escalators to get to SoHo and other attractions around Hollywood Road.

 Hong Kong has a fantastic public-transport system, which makes it an ideal destination for do-it-yourself trips.
 Nonetheless, many of the city's most unique sightseeing spots are located far from town, which means that visiting them
 on your own might waste much of your precious holiday time...

 This is exactly the case where taking a guided tour makes a lot of sense. Take a look at our recommended Hong Kong
 day trips… Some of which cover the territory's less known "gems" and are, therefore, well worth considering...

                       Offering 50% off and 'Buy 1, get 1 free' discounts at nearly 100 of Hong Kong's top restaurants, shops
                       and spas, the Hong Kong Card includes plenty of quality dining options, and is really easy to use. What's

Hop-off Tour is highly recommended, as it takes you directly to the various attractions and saves you the time and
hassle of waiting for a bus or walking from the nearest MTR station…
