Not much to add other than this is a great thing for inner-city movement.

I am sure there was and continues to be considerable local controversy about the project and it's pros and cons. Nonetheless, it moves people up and down from Central to the Peak quite easily.

If you're traveling with kids or the elderly, it's simply a life saver. Make sure that you know that there is only one escalator and that it runs up and down at certain times of the day to coincide with "rush hour" pedestrian traffic.

I really liked the fact that there are street signs and attractions/places of interest posted along the way as well as access exits to most streets etc.

With an abundance of shops, cafes, galleries etc. one will not be without access to food, shopping and galleries.

Along the escalator, I keep on floating with some indescribable feeling. How Hong Kong people fully utilized their limited land even with this kind of inclined angle. Try not to focus on the escalator but focus more on the surrounding, you may have different perception from there.

We went on the escalators en route to the Peak. They are a very good idea for a city with many hills and its a welcomed break. There are plenty of shops and restaurants along the way to tempt you off and inside. It's a good way to have a quick relax and to save energy not having to walk up hill.

We took the escalators from near Central right to the top. It is fascinating to go over so many different streets and we stopped at the end of each smaller section to take photos and look around. When we saw markets, Cat St, Soho, etc we had a wander around. From the top we caught a taxi to the star ferry which cost $35HK $6AUS.
This is our second visit to HK and we were sorry to have missed this on our first trip.

The mid-levels escalator is such an incredible thing and I have no idea why every other city doesn't have one. Trust me that with a city with this many hills, the escalator is a true saving grace. The hills are great for exercise but it does make it a bit tough to try all the amazing things this city has to offer.It is the longest outdoor escalator (yes, outdoor) and it changes directions with the foot traffic (down in the morning and up in the evening). If you are looking for it, search for Shelley street as it is along there.
