A Hong Kong Morning• 3 comments •
Although we woke up groggy with jet lag, we immediately got outside to begin experiencing Hong Kong. We meandered through winding alleys of Sheung Wan to the Shun Tak Centre on the waterfront, which hosts the ferry to Macau. The city was just waking up. After briefly looking at the skyscrapers of Tsim Sha Tsui, across the bustling harbor, we continued on.
We made our way through a series of connected walkways to the central mid levels escalators which make their way up the hill for over 2 miles, connecting shops, markets, restaurants, and residences. The intriguing character entices you to explore each cross-street while floating by on the escalators. We turned off at a random street to weave our way through fish monger stands, restaurants with duck corpses hanging in the windows, grocers with boxes of unfamiliar produce and dehydrated sea creatures, and market alleys specializing in products like live goldfish, wax stamps, or Chinese medicinal ingredients. It was an eventful morning. - Alex
