Points of Interest

Mid-Levels Escalator

Start your tour with a ride up the infamous Central-Mid-Levels Escalator.

At 800 meters long, it is the world's longest covered escalator linking the Central district to the steep, hilly Mid-Levels and Soho districts.

Along the way, you can see local shops, restaurants and peek into people's apartments.

The escalator only runs one way--downhill--during the morning commute from 6-10am, so it is best to start after rush hour.

Look for signs and the exit at Hollywood Road, about halfway up.

Man Mo Temple

This historic landmark temple, built in 1847, is a popular destination among local Chinese residents and visitors alike.

Man Mo Temple is dedicated to the God of Literature (Man) and the God of War (Mo), worshippers light bundles of incense sticks and place them in large urns around the temple for good luck. Large burning incense coils hang overhead creating a thick haze inside.

The temple is most crowded during Lunar New Year when thousands of worshippers flock to seek blessings.

Cameras are allowed but no flash, please. There is also a gift shop next to the main temple area.

Upper Lascar Row, "Cat Street"

Walk across the street and down Ladder Street to Upper Lascar Row. Also known as "Cat Street," this pedestrian way is lined with antique shops and an outdoor market selling Chinese crafts and souvenirs.

This is a great place to buy gifts. Bargaining over the price is common.

Inside, the shops sell Chinese antique furniture, vases and sculptures. Outside, the stalls are filled with Mao relics, old Jackie Chan posters, wooden handicrafts, jewelry and various trinkets.

Explore the hidden alleyways leading up and down off Upper Lascar Row and Ladder Street.
