Arguably the most famous escalator in Asia (it made an appearance in The Dark Knight), this outdoor walkway system is also the world's longest. Comprising 20 escalators and moving walkways, it takes twenty minutes to complete. The device is vital to the livelihood of residents in Central, a bustling yet notoriously steep neighborhood. With 14 exits, the escalator passes through the various happening spots in the area, from Graham Street, Hong Kong's oldest outdoor marketplace, to Shelley Street, a haven for pub crawlers. Those interested in taking the uphill journey should stay away before 10 a.m., when the escalators move downwards to cater to residents living in the mid-levels.
