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

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.

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...More

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

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
