The Mid-levels escalators are fun considering they are a novelty. Where else in the world can ride so long and far on outdoor elevators? I made a video about my ride you can watch on vimeo: https://vimeo.com/36641543

Where else in the world is an escalator even a tourist attraction? And where else can you take escalators as part of your weekend bar-hopping routine? This is great people-watching, and you get somewhere in the process. Between this and the double-decker trams, I really felt like Hong Kong was in a different tech/transport world entirely. Fun!

I like the escalators. They are the longest set of outdoor escalators in the world from what I have gathered.
They move thousands daily and the escalators themselves, while impressive to have such a string of them in service, is not the main attraction here.
These as albatross run through the SOHO district of Hong Kong. This is another area like LKF that expats will hang out and have a few drinks. The restaurants in this area are fantastic and I love being here better than LKF.
However, everyone should ride the escalators at least once. Give it a shot and you'll see why the area is so popular.

Haha, totally random thing, but fun to go up and down. There were over 20 segments I think. There's a lot to stop by along the way, whether you want to eat, shop, or get a beauty treatment. I imagine in the mornings most of the people are headed to work, but at night people are bar-hopping and enjoying the nightlife. I just had to go to the very top, which ends in a quiet residential neighborhood.

Mid-Levels Escalators are the longest outdoor escalator system in the world. It was placed to help ease traffic congestion in the area. The escalators only run one way during a specific time of the day so be ready for a lot of walking. At the side of the escalators are restaurants and bars (you wouldn't have to worry when you get hungry after doing a lot of walking). They have a wide variety of cuisine in the area so you wouldn't have to worry about not finding anything. After going to this place you can drop by Hollywood Road to do some shopping and more eating.
