Soho is the area between Central Hong Kong, the busy harbour area, and the peak, where you have the best views over the city (so: where all the rich people live). You can travel between those two areas on the Mid-Level-Escalators, which was established in 1993 to transport all those business men living up the peak to their work in the harbour/business-district every morning (and back up in the evening).

So the Soho-area is actually an in-between, and I love in-betweens. And its a very lively one, too, with restaurants, bars, art galleries, and antique shops, markets, nightclubs, and a lot of street art. Plus, the very rampant roads you walk up or down (if you don’t take the escalator) are the most interesting streets with a lot to discover. Some impressions:
