The escalator is so easy but make sure you note the times it is going up or down. A great way to get the lay of the land before you go off exploring the side streets.

It is said to be the longest escalator in the world, it's indeed quite interesting to get on. Watch the direction gets changed every day between 10-10:20am to going up so it's worth travelling after 10am. Best you take the ride going up and you...More

These escalators and covered walkways connected Central Station to Conduit Road and was an unusual and unique way of transiting through the SoHo district of Hong Kong. Overall the whole systems was recognized as the world record holder for the longest outdoor covered escalator. Connecting...More

Besides being unusual as a means of transportation, and free, the escalators are really useful. The hill is steep and quite difficult to go up and down during the hot and humid July. While on the escalator one can also spot pubs and places to...More

Unless you want to walk up a LOT of steps (or down), take the escalator that has many sections and many shops, pubs, and restaurants along each section. It goes down the hill in the morning and up the hill later in the day. Very...More

A quirky method of getting up the steep hills of Hong Kong Island. Worth a visit, and allows you easy access to the roads in between around the "Soho" area of Hong Kong. The area itself is quite busy, and wasn't our favourite (we try...More

The Mid-Level Escalators were well worth the trip from Kowloon to sample. A series of gentle escalators not unlike an urban funicular, they take you among the terraced shops and restaurants along the backstreets in central Hong Kong. Truly unique experience - very glad I...More

with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
