Central | Lan Kwai Fong
Starting from Queen's Road Central's Central Market is the Central Mid-Level's Escalator. The Escalator is 800m long, but it actually consists of many sub-sections of small escalators. Along the way, you can see the local shops to the mid-levels where the rich reside (No wonder the Government built this Escalator to solve the traffic problem for the rich?).
Moving along the Escalator and passing Hollywood Road, you'll then reach Staunton Street. This area is named SoHo since it is South of Hollywood Road. SoHo has a mix of trendy restaurants and cafes, with Italian, French, Thai, Mexican, Indian, Australian or Japanese cuisines, you name it!
Walk up from Queen's Road Central to D'Aguilar St, you'll then reach the famous Lan Kwai Fong area. This area is full of pubs and restaurants, where all the expats and yuppies have their drinks till they die on the weekends with late nights!

Just before you head into Lan Kwai Fong, Wellington Street on the right has some of the best local chinese restaurants in town, such as Yung Kee which is famous for the roast goose, or Tsui Wah that offers Hong Kong local afternoon tea or dishes, or Dah Li Noodles that serves the delicious Beef Brisket Noodle.
The shopping mall has a collection of all the top brand shops, such as Calvin Klein, Dior, Fendi, Gucci, Kenzo, Louis Vuitton, Mandarina Duck, Miu Miu, Polo Jeans, Prada, Tommy Hilfiger and Versace.
Li Yuen Street East | West
The local markets of the Li Yuen Street East and West are big contrast to The Landmark, which is only two blocks away. These local markets are similar to Jardine's Bazaar in Causeway Bay or the Ladies Market in Mongkok, they sell bargain items like watches, clothing and hand-bags etc.
Central District Police Station
Starting from the bottom of the Escalator, you will shortly arrive at Hollywood Road's Central District Police Station. This Doric-style structure gives you a taste of Hong Kong's colonial history.
Hollywood Road (Antique Street)
Hollywood Road is Hong Kong's most well-known antique street. The antique shops stretches from the Central District Police Station to Man Mo Temple and Upper Lascar Road (Cat Street), where you can find cheaper antiques.
