its all mentioned already but yes there are 2 escaltors,as KZ is on the 2nd floor not including the ground floor.

Shrangi la having the best location depends what for, being closest to KZ yep, most other things nope but maybe an extra 10 mins walk

 where to eat KZ or the JCC on HKI no reg restaurants, what to do thats very simple Reread this thread! and you will have yur answers
