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'....More

While not an attraction actually, it is a feature of Hong Kong that every traveler should know about. This is a fantastic way to get from Central to Hollywood Road without having to trudge up hills.

If they weren't free, I'd have wanted my money back. You actually see very little of interest, and it mostly takes you through some fairly bland areas of the city.

When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies
with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open
late into the night and there just happens to be a
street party every weekend. Although everything seems
to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of
