Never thought I'd see the day that they'd start building escalators outdoors, but somehow it kind of works! My only gripe is that it is a bit slow. People often stand on the left side too, which isn't the escalator's fault per se.

Long out door escalator, not much more. Or less. Good if you are tired of walking. Or maybe are in a hurry. But it can be a bit crowded now and then.

it is interesting to see but not a must see in Hong Kong in my opinion. the first part is surrounded by restaurants and pubs. There are better places to see in Hong Kong but if you have time go there

Be warned, its a SINGLE escalator...goes up during parts of the day and down others. So if you take it up understand that there is nothing at the top except people laughing at you....then you have to walk back down.

Star ferry moving escalators move up hill after 10pm. You will need to walk down stairs so do not go higher than you are will to walk down.

Only outdoor moving walkway in Hong Kong. It goes past the district of SOHO, a place full of bars and restaurants.

This is a series of escalators and walkways which are an interesting way to see up close and explore this part of Hong Kong without having to climb up the hills.

The escalator is in a cool area to explore, so when you are there, don't miss trying the escalator. It takes you through the streets with a different perspective, as you see the streets from 3'rd floor. You can jump on and off as you want, as there are exits as you go. Be aware that the direction of the... More

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
Central
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 quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
