Hong Kong features more forms of public transport than any city I've ever been to. You've got:The Peak Tram (gets you to "The Peak", an amazing vista spot)
My favorite, however, might be the escalators.
Yep. See that sign in the picture above? It's pointing you to the escalators.
Here are a couple of pics of Lane on the escalators...
Here is a shot from near the top of the escalators, looking back down the hill.
(Yep, Starbucks is ubiquitous)
Here's a nice shot of Lane on some steps:
I quite enjoyed this cramped public market we wandered through...
Looking back at it, up the hill...
And of course, services to cater to my demographic...

Damn...I miss HK now...funny I got lots of shots of HK on the escalator/people mover and of me drinking at a Starbucks...
Public transportation was awesome especially when you have a smart card that doubles as a smart card for pastries and coffee at cafes near the stations.
Mind you a yuppie in HK is called a chuppie.

I was in Hong Kong last week too, for the first time. Unfortunately I was in meetings all day and only got out at night, so couldn't get pictures of half of the cool stuff I saw.
What amazed me was the smells of the place. Not downtown, although bits of Temple Street had some of the feel, but up in Tsuen Wan I'd walk down a block and have a different combination of spices every 20 feet. Breakfast was incredible, take a walk around the neighborhood in the early morning, getting a bun or pastry for HK$3 or so here, a wonton there.
And the night time lights are, of course, amazing. Especially looking south across the straight to Hong Kong or looking down from the peak.

I like the way the person in the photo looks all dreamy and happy on the escalators.
I live in Hk, and it mostly shuttles weary (or about to be weary) people to work and back. It's like the Garden State Parkway or the Long Island RR is in NYC. Most people look grim on it.
But in these photos it spells bliss. Refreshing!
