Itinerary

For your Hong Kong Western Shoreline Cruise you should make your own way to one of the two meeting points, Kowloon Public Pier No. 3 or Hong Kong Central Pier No. 9.

Sit back and relax as you enjoy a leisurely afternoon cruise of the world-famous Victoria Harbor on a Chinese-style tour boat.

The name ‘Hong Kong’, literally means ‘fragrant harbor’. The city has grown up around a superb deep-water harbor offering a safe haven for boats travelling the Pearl River Delta Region of South China and ships from afar.

The cruise takes you past some of Hong Kong’s most famous landmarks, including the International Commerce Center, Two International Finance Center, Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center, HSBC Headquarters Building and the Bank of China Tower.

Sailing on to West Kowloon, you will see the Yaumatei Typhoon Shelter, the major anchorage for fishermen’s boats and tug boats, and Stonecutters Island, the former British Royal Navy Base.

As the boat travels further west, you will see the spectacular new Stonecutters Bridge (Tsing Ma Bridge) linking the city to the new Hong Kong International Airport. Opened in December 2009, it is presently the second longest cable-stayed bridge in the world. Right below the bridge is the Kwai Chung Container Port, the world’s third largest container port. Here you are close to major cargo handling facilities for container ship and river boats.

During the cruise you will be served light refreshments including one set of assorted Chinese cookies or pastries with one soft drink, coffee or tea.

The cruise ends either at Kowloon Public Pier No. 3 or Hong Kong Central Pier No. 9.
