The Central-Midlevels escalator is 800 meters long in total and is located (you guessed it) in the Central Business district, linking up to the Mid-levels on Hong Kong Island. I did not fully do my research ahead of time and the suggestion to see (via tourists websites and a local) was taken without a second thought.
|Here we go! Escalator woooo!|
|Color me Not Amused ;-)|
The moral of the story is that I completely missed the point of seeing the escalators. The journey for a tourist is to give you a peek into the different areas and levels of Hong Kong Island and you get off along the way to enjoy shops and restaurants. We rode the escalator after we had already walked through the hilly streets because I am simultaneously someone who enjoys seeing all the nooks and alleys in a destination as well as being a jerk who makes my husband walk everywhere.
Oh well, lesson learned. At least there was a pretty view.
