A free ride up the hillside, spread over about 12 sections. Great way to see some of the 'real' Hong Kong, with residential blocks (and their washing) only metres away. When we got to the top we meandered our way along paths & roads to the HK garden park and back to the Central area.

I love that they think of their population first and then tourist by keeping the time in the morning going down! It is very convenient for the rest of us visiting to take up later in the morning or doing some exercise to see the locals going down in the morning and we going up the steps! It is something other countries should copy from to help the elderly and children visit their places! I love that it is for free for everyone. I took it the first day to visit Victoria Prison museum!

We love a ride up the escalators into the mid levels. Note that there are some out of service at the moment and the downhill to uphill changeover occurs between 10 and 1030am. This is a fun free thing to do in Hong Kong.

It was a typical Hong Kong June day when we rode the escalators from bottom to top and it was a fun and mostly dry way to see the mid-levels.

Pretty easy going except for the steps at the end so suitable for just about anyone.

Lots of places to stop for a snack or a drink along the way too.

Oh... and don't forget to catch the green local bus back down to the bottom too!

The Mid-level escalator was one of the good work done by Hong Kong Government. It facilitates the residents of Mid-level to go down to the Central during morning rush hours and the escalators go uphill at other time. Visitors can easily enjoy the scenery of old and new buildings in this area. The newly opened ‘Tai Kwun’ was originally a Police Station built by British government and now converted to a history and cultural centre for public. No admission fee to go in. The colonial style buildings were restored. There are coffee shop and arts display. You may enjoy going around for couple of hours there.

Who would have thought that 800 m odd of escalators could be interesting, but it is a great way to move about and something pretty unique and a great example of smart engineering. I can see why the locals that live in the mid level love these escalators - must have been a killer having to walk down to work or shop in the city, then back up to homes! The escalators head downhill in the morning to take people down, swapping to uphill later in the day to take people home. There are also stairs parallel to the escalators if you’re out of sync time wise or on a health kick. If you’re in the city, leave it until lunch time and catch them on the up! Combined this with a walk down through the streets and this combination provided another unique way to view HK Island.

It's an escalator and whoever put in the application for this to be the worlds longest isn't the sort of person that you would wanna buy land off of. It is just a series of elevators that are connected to form 'the world's longest elevator'. You could seriously stumble upon it and just take it for your run of the mill elevator. I gave it a 'very good' because in terms of elevators it does its job. You jump on, the elevator moves, you get off. More so it was hot so the whole moving without doing anything is great. 10/10 would ride again.
