Owner description: 800-metre hillside escalator starts from Connaught Road Central, runs to the Hang Seng Bank Building on Des Voeux Road Central, then passes through the Central Market and continues to climb past Hollywood Road to the prime Mid-levels residential district. The longest covered outdoor escalator system in the world.

Interesting concept. One should take only if visiting Soho.The escalate itself are not wort visiting but ones you hit Soho it's great.
One should take the ride up as its a steep hill. When one gets to Soho, one can enjoy seeing the international cuisine restaurants rolling away as the escalator keeps moving. I visited in the dusk,the feeling one gets seeing all those great looking cafes and bars lined up on both side of hills was fun.

We were walking passed and decided to hop on from the bottom up to Hollywood rd.
The escalator itself is not much, watching the people and the side streets are more interesting.
For those with Octopus cards look for the Octopus terminal half way up the lower section. Putting your card on the scanner gets you 2$ credit.

Don't forget what you ride up you must walk down.

Interesting series of escalators and moving walkways. When you get to the top, turn right and a few metres away there is a bus stop where you can get the green minibus to take you back down to Central (pay with your Octopus card).

I went to the escalator early on my last trip -- I was at the bottom and it was traveling down. It goes down until 10:15-ish and then goes up.

It's unique -- I don't know of anything like it in other major cities. I went up most of the way and then came back down via steps right next to it to Hollywood Road, and then down Hollywood Road to see the shops and then go to the Man Mo Temple.

It is very handy if you take it with the right direction. Since I was living at the mid level area, I have to go through it almost everyday if I don't take cab. However, I went back very late and the escalator has already closed, so I have to climb all the stairs up. But actually, it is not as tiring as I thought! Just consider it as exercise! It is a pretty cool experience!
