First you have to get there - walking the streets in this part of HK was a real workout! Riding the escalators was the easy part. Just think of what people had to do before these were installed! Lots of bars and restaurants along each set of escalators especially at the lower parts. We even found a supermarket along the... More

It's fascinating as it's so unusual, very busy most of the time with people travelling to and fro their daily lives. It's not glossy or glitzy but it's part of the real world so don't get in the way taking group photos or selfies you'll get nudged: They belong here, we're just casual observers so try not to intrude but...

it s strange to see a long escalator in the middle of the streets and building just leading people to quartier upper side. It is close to nightlife spots and it would deserve a tour while going to bar and restaurants

This was not built as a tourist spot but a convenient link between Central and the mid-Levels. While it maintains this function, tourists increasingly find this place interesting. It provides a pleasant walk uphill/downhill. Come here to avoid the scorching afternoon in summer.

It was a pleasant distraction but unless you are actually using it to get somewhere specific rather pointless. We travelled up to SoHo to eat but were rather underwhelmed by the whole experience.

Mid levels are unique and fun! There's a lot to explore at each "exit" point: shops, less touristy restaurants, bars, etc. Not to miss

Walk above the traffic across the entire metropolis. A unique way to see Hong Kong, visit the shopping centres, travel between landmarks and see the sights.

Such a fun way to travel! Pretty unique and convenient. You can get off to go into the neighbouring stores/cafes at any time.

This is an extremely long escalator..actually, this is more like a series of escalators..all going upwards. There are shops lining all the way and you can get off when one escalator ends and where another begins. The fun part is going downwards! Be at least relatively fit if you plan on taking the escalator to either the end or near... More

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
