Located half-way up Victoria Peak, the Mid-Levels are divided into three sections: the Central Mid-Levels overlook Central and Admiralty; the Western Mid-Levels jut over the Sai Ying Pun district; and the Eastern Mid-Levels rise above Wan Chai. These popular residential districts contain Hong Kong's thriving nightlife and dining district, including popular Soho. The Mid-Levels also offer outdoor recreation, including challenging hiking like the Morning trail, the Hong Kong trail, the Wan Chai Gap Road and leafy Bowen Road. The Central Mid-Levels escalator is the world's longest outdoor covered escalator system, extending over 800 meters and serving as an essential mode of transport for residents.
