What people are saying:

This elevator up the hill is a attraction in Hong Kong, I think, it is going up from the Central to the top, but the elevator goes to the top, I don't think I went to the top, but it belongs to the rich district, there are mansions in one house, All the cars are parked around. From the elevator to the upward, you can reach many restaurants, shops and convenience stores. Seeing 7-11 convenience stores is really a lot. There is one on each road. The elevator goes to the middle, which is the Soho District. Every weekend, there are a lot of foreigners gathered together. Recently, near Christmas, many guests will wear Christmas clothes to the bar. This uphill lift runs from 10 to midnight 12 every day. It runs down in the morning when it starts in the morning. Because usually in the morning, people who live on the mountain will go down to work, so the elevator will be humanized. The transfer started from 10 point and went up.

Additional Information


The Central to Mid-Levels Escalator and walkway system in Hong Kong is the longest outdoor covered escalator system in the world. It runs over 800 m and traverses an elevation of over 135 m. It opened in 1993 to provide an improved link between the Central and Mid-Levels districts on Hong Kong Island. Apart from serving as a mode of transportation, the system is also a tourist attraction and is lined with restaurants, bars, and shops. The escalator's direction of travel reverses during the day to accommodate the general flow of pedestrians. Many are drawn to view the spot where filming occurred on several well-known movies including "Chungking Express" and "The Dark Knight."
