About Central to Mid-Levels Escalator

The Central to Mid-Levels Escalator and walkway system in Hong Kong is the longest outdoor covered escalator system in the world. It runs over 800 m and traverses an elevation of over 135 m. It opened in 1993 to provide an improved link between the Central and Mid-Levels districts on Hong Kong Island. Apart from serving as a mode of transportation, the system is also a tourist attraction and is lined with restaurants, bars, and shops. The escalator's direction of travel reverses during the day to accommodate the general flow of pedestrians. Many are drawn to view the spot where filming occurred on several well-known movies including "Chungking Express" and "The Dark Knight."
