Central Market was a fresh food market in Central, Hong Kong and the first wet market in the city. It is one of only two existing Bauhaus market buildings in Hong Kong, the other one being Wan Chai Market.
After years of disuse, it was reopened to the public on Aug 23, 2021 as a new centre for retailers, eateries and public areas. This was after a major renovation led by the Urban Renewal Authority, which retained some original architectural structures, such as some market stalls and its iconic stairwell.

It’s a good place to enjoy the longest escalator of the world. It’s enjoyable but it runs one way. You have to walk all the way down when you reach the top of it. There’re many beautiful and luxurious restaurants near the escalators.

For those people that live in Hong Kong - it is a method of transportation, for the tourists , it is the largest outdoor escalator system in the world but is really nothing more than connected people movers and escalators. Please remember that until 10 AM in the morning the escalator goes down. At 10 AM the escalator switches in Vienna heads up hill. The escalator shuts down at midnight every night.

One of the tourist spot in Hong Kong. Everyday thousands of people use the escalator and its good spot for the tourist to take pictures. At the end of the escalator in central walls are painted with extraordinary designs depends on the theme. It will make your photos extraordinary!

A must-do in Hong Kong given that this is a unique mode of urban transport but don’t expect anything too thrilling. Effectively like wandering the streets but without the effort. Bear in mind the timings (06:00-10:00 they go down then until midnight they go up) and the fact you’ll have to walk back down a lot of stairs (or get a bus/taxi). Nothing much at all at the top which is a bit of an anticlimax but you can walk from there to the Peak tram in about 20 minutes to keep going higher.

Good tourist attraction. There isn't one escalator, but lots of shorter ones. Great fun with good views

Good, functioning well. What is Google expecting me to comment? Connect the bottom of the hill and the upper well. Convenient if you don't wanna walk too much uphill but you will miss good stores down there.

This is fun as you can get up the hill using escalators. On the day when I went one of the escalator to exit had broke down there was a huge and long queue waiting to get out. We took a long time before we could exit from the place. Overall it’s free attraction where you could observe a typical mode how the locals commute up and down the hill everyday.

It's just a place you don't usually see from home. Please be considerate to not block the left hand side of the escalator, for locals really could do without getting past lots of selfie sticks ascending the hill day in and day out.

can be quite confusing at first but you get to master it after a few tries. Locals and working professionals use the system for convenience & cost-efficiency (it is free, after all) but tourists should experience it as well. I haven't been to anywhere like this in the world. It is an amazing engineering feat that should be adopted by other countries with too much people on the ground

This is worth visiting and walking. A great way to see the Central area without walking that much up the hills. Take note that the ascend is much much easier than the descent, since the escalators travel only in one direction.

Central on the whole is lifeline of Hong Kong. Mid-level is mostly popular amongst expatriates. There are lot of Bars,Restaurants, Night Life. Also there is a very popular Temple. Lang Kwai Fong is also in the vicinity.... nice place. I recommend all visitors must go there & enjoy the place.

A must whilst in HK to experience what the locals do daily. There's work on the escalator systems during 2018, which may mean one or two escalators are out during this time. This didn't spoil our ride, just have to use some steps. We went all the way to the top and then took the steps down and took a look around. There's some great coffee shops along the escalator system, and the fruit & veg market runs parallel.

The interior is only partially completed. Definitely worthwhile to come back when it is fully completed. It is very rare in Hong Kong that a historical building complex is preserved so well.

I love the worlds longest escalator! A very interesting and unique place! And many good restaurants and streets going up and down
Ernst Toerien | Jun 30, 2018
When you find them at last, for sure worth the visit. Going up and up amongst the high rising buildings of Hong Kong is a sight to see. It doesn't take a lot of effort to go all the way to the top. Most people would be able to make it. It is worth a visit for its uniqueness. Just finding it takes a while. The reason for this is because there are a lot of escalators going up, but only one of those go all the way to the top. Go and visit.

Apparently the longest escalator on earth. It was good and very convenient. We kept coming off it and shopping or going to pubs along it. Was good and a lot better than walking all way up on foot.

Iconic Hong Kong! Great way to get an overview of much of the "touristy/expat" area. Beware the escalators are not air conditioned, so bring something to drink of you are not used to the heat. Suggest you take the escalators to the top, then walk down to get a full experience of the area.
