|On the Airport Express train to Central|
|There is actually a long escalator, called the Midlevels Escalator, which cuts through Central taking people up into the hills. Really convenient and it takes you through some pretty lively spots.|

|Hong Kong has the only double decker tram system in the world. They're teeny--look how small they are next to that bus.|
Getting around Hong Kong was remarkably easy. The public transportation was easy to use (and similar to Singapore's), and there is an escalator running through a few neighborhoods in case you don't want to climb up the stairs. Still, walking around is the best way to really explore the different neighborhoods. While exploring on our first night, we found a bottle shop in SoHo that sold Jeff's favorite beer and my favorite wine. It was almost like a welcome sign for us.
I had always heard that Hong Kong was known as a shopping destination, and although I did a bit of shopping I'm sure there is much more that I missed. The local designers and brands are impressive; we found an entire mall of local stores with stuff I only wish I could find in Singapore. People have such great style there, too.
We enjoyed our trip to Hong Kong so much that we've already booked a trip to go back.
