I like most tried it as I had heard of it, enjoyable "yes" it was different and like others I can say that I went up and then I went down. Been there done that.

I had to check out the Mid-levels Escalator, reputed to be the longest in the world. It was an experience. Parts of the stretch were under construction, and the functioning parts were, frankly, filthy. I noticed that the new stretches were much cleaner. Overall, I...More

The mid-levels escalators are convenient and interesting as a public service. But, all said, they're just small escalators. HOWEVER, at the top are two brown-brick buildings of an earlier period. Here is where the real interest of the escalators is to be found - the...More

A fascinating way to experience Central Hong Kong. It begins at Queen’s Road and travels uphill for about 800 meters and ends at Conduit Road. This one way escalator travels uphill from 10am - midnight and downhill from 6am - 10am. There are several segments...More

Great for any steep hilly city such as San Francisco. Not really an escalator: more of a moving sidewalk, like an inclined airport moving sidewalk. Still fun. Hopped off near Soho, PMQ and Man Mo Temple.

Probably worth doing if you have time, this links up to Hollywood Rd, these are busy and worth hopping on/off to see the interesting side streets surrounding this area.

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...More

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
