Hong Kong City Walk (Part 4)


Hong Kong City Walk (Part 4)
Location: Central/ Sheung Wan, Hong Kong


续上回新年冬季时候还未完成的城市游走,这回再次回到香港继续在市区探索还未到访的景点。的确没预料到我那么快又回到了陌生又熟悉的地方,这回有朋友陪伴,于是把这趟旅程的最后一天放在市中心。当行程计划好后,我们决定早晨一早出发,第一站先去尝试香港道地的点心料理,然后下午顺道在附近四处走动,寻画探景,休闲似地拿着相机把一切记录下来。当然我是旧地重游,朋友们是首次探访这新地方,一样不亦乐乎。



莲香楼 (Lin Heung Lau Tea House)@ 中环,香港

在香港的密集市区中游走,想要体验香港早晨的繁忙时分最好就是到旧式的茶楼去饮茶。这趟香港之旅到了中环区的莲香楼,这里就是人人推荐必须到来的茶楼之一。好不容易找到了位子坐下来,争先恐后拿到了我们要的点心,一切都是自助式。与其说是茶楼,倒更像是在自己的家里喝茶一样,顾客们出入自如,想吃什么拿什么。吃着叉烧包,和同桌的陌生老人聊天,学人家如何饮茶之余,感受一下香港茶楼所给予的怀旧气息,这就是香港的饮茶。

【莲香楼,源于广州,经营中式茶楼午市晚餐。茶楼大厅四面装有中国古文诗句、山水字画,来这里饮茶,没有叫号码筹号,要自己找位子,而且全是“搭台”,有种典型香港旧式茶楼的气氛。有手推点心车,著名的点心包括马来糕、糯米鸡、蒸鱼云等。】



中环至半山自动扶梯 (Central-Mid-Levels Escalator and Walkway System)

想要在中环至上环一带游走观光景点最好就是从这自动扶梯开始,它位于上环与中环地铁正中央。这市区说大不大,说小也不小,但因为高楼处处,偶尔穿街走巷也会失去方向感。不过,唯一最显眼的地标就是这中环至半山的自动扶梯。从这自动扶梯开始沿途探索,更加方便和容易寻找到附近知名的景点,例如处于半山往荷里活道方向走去的文武庙,又或者往云咸街方向就会到达兰桂坊。

【中环至半山自动扶梯,原意是为方便半山区居民往来中环商业区并舒缓半山区狭窄道路的繁忙情况之用。爱自由行的游客可以乘搭自动扶梯悠闲体验地道的街头风光,一睹都市生活的多个面貌和沿途依山而建的独特城市景色。据说这自动扶梯系统全长800公尺,分为20段,是世界最长的户外有盖电梯,每天约有3-4万人次使用。】



兰芳园茶室 (Lan Fong Yuen) @ 中环

要数最地道的“港味”,一定少不了丝袜奶茶,那份醇厚香滑的口感,让人一试难忘。受殖民地文化影响,香港人喝茶时会仿效英国人,加入淡奶和糖,丰富口感和层次,但不同的比列与师傅的“撞奶”功夫,却发展出截然不同的口味。兰芳园的丝袜奶茶是非常出名的,看到有人推荐,于是在中环区穿街走巷,好不容易才找到这家兰芳园。



文武庙 Man Mo Temple@ 上环,香港 

从中环至半山自动扶梯处一直沿着荷里活道往上环地铁站步行,一路上除了可以欣赏不少的艺术壁画之外,那区其中一个观光景点就是文武庙 。据说文武庙是现在香港一级历史建筑。据说文武庙建成后,不但成了上环华人宗教信仰的中心,也是华人议事、教育和仲裁的地方,是早期港英政府批准可以使用中国方法进行斩鸡头、烧黄纸宣誓及裁决华人之间纠纷的地方。

【文武庙是香港殖民地时期,其中一座最早兴建的中式庙宇,安静的位处上环闹市里头,与车水马龙的商业区,形成强烈的对比。庙内轻烟袅袅,四处吊挂着长燃不熄的大型塔香,代表善信祈求健康、财富和快乐的祝愿。
文武庙内供奉着“文帝”和“武帝”:文帝(文昌帝君)手执毛笔,职司文学和官禄;而武帝(关圣帝君)身穿绿色长袍、手持长剑,代表忠义武略。除文武二帝外,文武庙还奉祀包公及城隍,庙内又同时置有两件有逾百年历史的文物,包括:清朝道光年间(1847年)的铜钟,以及一台造于1862年的官轿。每年秋天,文武庙都会举行盛大的秋祭典礼,酬谢文武二帝,并为香港市民祈福。】



荷李活道的壁画之寻(Mural Hunting) @上环,香港

沿着荷李活道一路步行就会发现不少壁画,就像槟城和新加坡的古迹区一样,让本是单调乏味的墙壁成了艺术家的创作空间,散发着街头艺术的气息。在上环区穿街走巷就会在某转角处发现非常有特色的壁画,听说这些壁画都是来自世界各地不同的艺术家。有壁画的地方肯定会吸引不少喜爱拍摄的游客前来,而且附近也有不少画廊和相片馆。因此,在上环古迹区游走除了寻找有着遥远历史故事的观光景点和道地美食之外,多姿多彩的壁画也给予了游客们不错的视觉享受与自拍留念的乐趣。

【沿着磨口罗上街一直前进,是荷李活道,那儿一路都是高级古董名店,集中了近百家书画、文物、古董商店。】



乘搭叮叮车从上环到中环

上环的大街道上可以发现充满怀旧气息的香港电车叮叮! 不被淘汰的两层叮叮车在新旧建筑物结合的密集城市中有着它必须被保留下来的价值。我们从中环区中部步行到上环的市中心,然后再从上环处乘搭叮叮车回到中环区。跳上香港的电车,当然爬上二楼处坐下来欣赏大街的繁忙街道景色,吹着风,赏着景,然后传来“叮叮”的声音,瞬间就到站了。只要使用八达通卡就行,在下车前付费,全程的车费大约新币$2.50

【香港电车,又名叮叮车从1904年成立之初,只有26辆单层电车。经过百多年的努力,今天拥有164辆双层电车,当中包括两辆古董派對电车及一辆怀旧观光电车,被誉为世界上仍在服务中的最大双层电车车队,每日平均接載20万人次的乘客。】
