The Central－Mid-Levels Escalator is the world’s longest covered outdoor escalator. Stretching over 800 metres long, the escalator links Des Voeux Road Central near the harbour to Conduit Road in the Mid-Levels. The escalator runs one-way downhill during peak hour from 6am to 10am and changes to uphill from 10am to midnight for the convenience of residents living in the area. Built in 1994, the entire length takes around 20 minutes. If you wish to explore the Hong Kong districts, I would recommend to visit the series of 20 escalators and 3 inclined moving walkways.
