China opens world's longest sightseeing escalator
Tourists who are feeling sluggish but still want to see the sights have had their prayers answered. China has unveiled the world's longest sightseeing escalator to take people down the Enshi Canyon.
Located in the Hubei Province, tourists can ride the 688-metre long escalator for 20 yuan (NZ$4). However, at 18 minutes, it might be quicker to walk.
The attraction, which opened during National Day holiday on October 1, cost $7.3 million to build, the Mail Online reported.
About 7300 people are being transported to the bottom of the canyon every hour.
"I went there during the national holiday. My dad and grandma took the escalator. They ended up arriving later than those who took the staircases," one user wrote on social media website, Weibo.
