Electric Road is a road on Hong Kong Island that, compared to such as King's Road, which runs parallel to it (and has supplanted it as the main thoroughfare of the areas where they both pass through), doesn't come across as having a particularly electric atmosphere.
Named for a big Hong Kong Electric power plant erected in the area early in the last century, the road's western section these days is home to an eating area -- full of Japanese restaurants, Shanghai noodle eateries, Cantonese dessert shops and more -- that I frequently patronise and there are two skyscrapers on it, inside of which thousands of white collar workers are to be found during office hours. For the most part, however, it runs through areas that are more residential than commercial. So it's not a part of Asia's World City that many visitors -- besides those who lodge at the sprinkling of tourist hotels in the area -- venture into and see.
And, frankly, much of Electric Road really isn't all that photogenic even to my eyes -- which is why I feel obliged to include two photos of a more 'electric' looking Hong Kong road in this Photo Hunt: namely, Nathan Road, Kowloon's neon-filled major avenue. This even though after all is said and done, I actually have spent more time on Electric Road than Nathan Road since moving to this part of the world which I still continue to love and regularly feel excited by.
