Created in the late 19th century, Ladder Street is a stone staircase that begins at Queen’s Road Central and spans the hill up to Caine Road. It runs for about 350 meters, or 100 steps, connecting landmarks and heritage sites such as Man Mo Temple and the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Museum.

While the Sheung Wan area is rife with similar stone “ladder streets” that are tucked into the district’s many steep hills, this street was specifically recognized as a Grade 1 Built Heritage site in 2009. Being almost fully comprised of steps from end to end, with few flat spaces in between, climbing these stairs would be a workout indeed.
