In Central Hong Kong, you’ll see the sign says ‘escalator’ and people often guide you to ‘take the escalator’ to get to somewhere. What is so special about the escalator? Because this is world’s longest indoor escalator and it is crossing the whole central area of Hong Kong Island. Get on and get off, wherever you are. It goes down in early morning (before 10am) and it goes up rest of the day. The entire system covers over 800 metres in distance and elevates over 135 metres from bottom to top. It links Des Voeux Road in Central with Conduit Road in the Mid-levels, passing through narrow streets. The daily traffic exceeds 55,000 people. I featured this escalator in my “Hong Kong Loves’ The Best” post.
One fine afternoon in Hong Kong, Stephen (@bohemiantrav ) and I took the escalator from bottom to top and filmed the entire journey. Don’t have a time to watch the whole thing? Not to worry, we fast forwarded it. 🙂
