Flights of steps to walk up (or down depending on where you start). Take your time to walk up and do some shopping along the way. Shopping is mainly roadside stalls selling knick-knacks When you have reached the top of the steps, you can then...More

I got lost again but I found this nice street! It's a charming street full with history, fun and lots of cobblestones. Small street stalls sell ribbons, small souvenirs and cute stuff. Great to be lost in HK.
