Central Mid-Levels Escalator• 3 comments •
The Central Mid-Levels Escalator (that still doesn't sound right to me) is the longest outdoor escalator and walkway system in the world. Designed to help residents commute from the hills above Hong Kong to the downtown area, it has also become a shopping and tourism hot spot.
It was another rainy afternoon on our trip so, going up the covered escalators made sense. We hopped off to check out restaurants, shops, and anything that looked interesting like a mosque and a garden. Despite the fact is was raining, it was still quite warm so we cooled down for a bit at Holly Brown with some matcha gelato.
There were more buildings for me to be in awe of and I may have taken too many photos of one particular pink one because it was so outrageously tall that I wouldn't have been surprised if I captured it toppling over.
Some images of the views and a few of our stops while lazily riding the escalator instead of taking the stairs:
