In Hong Kong, the Central – Mid-Levels Escalator system is the longest outdoor covered escalator in the world. The escalator runs a length of 800 meters and climbs 135 meters in elevation. To ride the length of the escalator takes approximately 20 minutes. If this is your first ride on the elevator, you should allocate at least an hour so that you can stop off at some of the side streets, including the Central Market to see a traditional Hong Kong outdoor market, and Hollywood road to check out the antique shops. And best of all, it’s free to ride!
