Hong Kong Part 4

Up at the Peak is a mall which had a STARBUCKS!! Token was a happy camper:
After spending some time up at the Peak, we took the tram back down and walked back to the hotel to figure out what to do next. We decided to go into the Central part of HK and check out the Mid-Levels escalators... the longest escalator system in the world!! To get there, we had to take the MTR. Little did we know, we'd be MTR experts by the end of the trip. We joke that this vacation was the "mode of transportation" trip because we used: a plane, a train, a taxi, a boat, a Skyrail, and a bus to get around. In the MTR:

Lookin' like a big city dweller. Boy, did we have them fooled ;)

There were many quirky shops and stores along the escalator system, like this Pawn Shop:


There were also lots of shops selling Chinese goods. It was interesting to see all of the different things people were selling.


From the escalators, we bumped into a HUGE shopping mall. We walked around it for awhile and ate some lunch. While we were there, there were some Christmas carolers performing some songs. It was pretty cool.
