    Central Elevators

    Central Escalator

    This is I believe the longest elevator in the world, it is 800m long and links the Central Districts with the Mid- Levels.
    Opened oct.1994, accessed from Connaught Road, takes aprox, 20min, but it has 29 entry and exit points.
    Important notes ;runs downhill from 6am-10am ,then uphill from 10.20am to midnight.
    Why do it ? Because its there and now I have ridden it, besides it was raining, the walk down wasnt too bad>

    Mid-Levels Escalator at Hong Kong Central

    by sunnywong Written Feb 25, 2003

    ride the world's longest covered outdoor escalator system which snakes through the back streets of Central. Twenty escalators and three "travelators" comprise this 800-metre-long outdoor "people mover" which links Central and the Mid-Levels, one of Hong Kong's most expensive residential districts. With 29 entry and exit points, it takes about 20 minutes to travel from one end to the other.

    This place is ' Hillside escalator'
    If you see this escalator, you will be surprised.
    It's a really really long escalator and the right and the left side of this escalator are hongkong's typical houses or small shops and restaurants...
    I am not sure if this place is a tourist attraction or not.. but It's a interesting place.
    But, when you go up to the top of the hill and if you want to come down, you have to use the stairs.......

  • Explore Central Area in HK...

    Explore Central Area in HK Island by foot following Central Mid-Levels Escalators route. Follow this stairs & escalators walkway and wander off the path in any of its sidestreets... many interesting small restaurants from Spanish to Portuguese, Jamaican, Italian, etc. Several souvenir shops as well.
    Catholics may want to offer a short prayer at Catholic Cathedral of Immaculate Conception, a short walk west of Caine Rd. This old church (restored in 1890s) could be reached going inside an alley and surprisingly dwarfed amidst tall residential flats. A personal interest site for me as this was where my Portuguese great grandfather was baptised.
