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."

    It is also a famous scenic spot. Many movies and TV series MV have appeared. In the Hong Kong film Chongqing Forest, Liang Chaowei, who plays the police, takes the escalator to work. Wang Fei, the heroine, peeps at him from the apartment window and becomes a classic scene. There is Lan Guifang nearby, so if you come to the escalator in the evening, you can go to a bar street to indulge. The half-mountain escalator is very long, and some places are trembling too. It should be true that it has climbed half-way up the hill. We sat at the head and it took an estimated 20 minutes. There are also many special shops on both sides of the escalator, which is worth seeing. When I take the escalator, I've been thinking about how tired the people living here are and how inconvenient it is to go to and from work. It's good to go out early, or it's too late. And the elevators are all on the way up the hill. Do you take all the stairs next to you when you go down the hill? Or by bus? Later, Baidu went down. In order to facilitate the convenience facilities needed by residents up and down the mountain, an escalator operated in one direction at different times.

    Take the subway to exit C of Zhonghuan Station, and go west along Devon Road 200 meters above the ground, which is Zhonghuan Street Market. Across the street, Gelin Street is the starting point of the escalator. The escalator goes downhill before 10 o'clock and starts to climb up at 10:20. The escalator is divided into many sections and can leave at any time. The most wonderful thing is the scenery along the escalator: from the bottom of a busy shop, chaotic buildings, to the neat and bright half of the mountain, really feel a point of height and a point of value. There are signs at the end of the escalator. You can walk along the sign for 20 minutes to find the cable station to the top of Taiping Mountain. And the scenery along the way is very pleasant. I like it very much. I suggest using this route to mountain.

    I've heard about the escalator from Central to Mid-mountain in Chongqing Forest, where Liang Chaowei took the escalator to work. Afee took a peek at Liang Chaowei's house and sneaked in his heart. He was delighted to see the escalator extending to mid-mountain. He didn't marvel at the designer's ingenuity. On both sides of the escalator were towering residential buildings and shops. Many foreigners came in and out of many restaurants. People later learned that this was an escalator built by the Hong Kong and British governments to improve the traffic on the hillside. Many sights passed by. Think of the lines in the forests of Chongqing. Every day you have the chance to pass by with others. You may know nothing about him or one day he will become your friend or confidant.

    Follow Zhu Mu Lydia's novel. Along the overpass, the IFC in Central passes through a building, which is the entrance of the escalator. Up the escalator, you can walk between the narrow hills, enjoy the scenery on both sides, experience the local customs and customs of Hong Kong, tired of visiting boutique shops on both sides, or go into a small restaurant to order a cup of coffee to savor slowly. Downhill along the highway ramp, it was not long before we reached the original starting point. Mid-mountain is really interesting, very Hong Kong's feeling, it's worth visiting.

    I've been to Hong Kong many times, and I've been there many times. But this time, I found out by accident that there is still a landmark escalator with a long history. I thought it was the kind of escalator that Big Mac had to stop at the end. But I heard that it took 20 minutes to ride, but I also felt it was impossible. Of course, I still got the experience on the spot. In fact, nine pieces of beef brisket at the foot of the mountain were hurried to finish the meal. Navigation along the way to find, but climbing the slope is really tired enough, but also really appreciate the role of this escalator. The escalator is obvious and easy to find by navigation. More than a dozen different forms of escalators stop and walk very fast. Along the road, you can also see street scenes, different styles of buildings and bars.

    Half-mountain escalators, which often appear in Hong Kong movies, are an important local transportation highway. It is a scenic spot worth experiencing for tourists. You can see the striking ladder-like sections of escalators soon after you get out of the Central Station and follow the navigation. It takes at least 20 minutes to climb on your own during the whole journey. There is a machine in the middle that can brush eight-way coupons.

    Take the subway to Central, take a seat and feel the longest, 800 meters outdoor covered escalator in the world. In the Hong Kong film Chongqing Forest, Liang Chaowei, who plays the police, takes the escalator to work. Wang Fei, the heroine, peeps at him from the apartment window and becomes a classic scene. Ride up the escalator, walk between the high-rise buildings, enjoy the scenery on both sides, experience the local customs, reach half the hill and down the stairs, tired to visit the boutique shops on both sides or into a small restaurant to taste local delicacies, order a glass of Hong Kong-style silk stockings milk tea. There is also the famous Languifang Bar Street next to it. It's really interesting. It's a pleasant feeling in Hong Kong.

    The 800-meter-long escalator connecting Central and Mid-mountain is the longest outdoor covered escalator in the world. Many Hong Kong films such as Chongqing Forest have been shot here. Go up and take the elevator for 20 minutes, then sit down and take the No. 3 minibus and drift for a few minutes.

    The classic scene of Wang Fei looking at Liang Chaowei in the film Chongqing Forest was shot on the escalator in the middle of the mountain. There are many sections of the escalator, each of which can be accessed from the side to the shops on both sides. There are restaurants, bars and handicraft shops. Runniman was also filmed here. In addition, there is a discount point for Octopus, which can be deducted by 2 dollars from Central, Shanghuan and Hong Kong stations on the same day after punching in.
