Hong Kong's first sightseeing restaurant busOffering tourists and locals a fresh experience of sightseeing and dining, Hong Kong has introduced its first sightseeing restaurant bus which went into service from March 15th, China’s Xinhua news agency reported.

 

Known as ‘Crystal Bus’, the service “combines concepts of tourism and catering, allowing tourists to enjoy local cuisine while experiencing Hong Kong’s most representative attractions.”

 

“(For tourists,) there is now no need to plan where to go or worry about where to eat, sparing time for shopping,” Thomas Hung, chairman of the operator Crystal Bus Holding Limited, said at a launching ceremony on March 14th.

 

The sightseeing restaurant bus is a 47-seat double-decker furnished with wonderful lighting and sound systems. It tours around the city while serving food prepared by locally famous and Michelin starred restaurants.

 

Its service comprises day and night tours, with day tour covering over 20 attractions from Kowloon to Hong Kong Island or to the New Territories.

 

The two-and-a-half-hour day tour costs each passenger 380 Hong Kong dollars (US$48.9).

 

Night tours are only for booking out the entire bus and guests can choose the route for themselves.

 

Prices for a five-hour such service is 8,800 Hong Kong dollars (US$1,132.7) from Monday to Thursday and 12,800 Hong Kong dollars (US$1,647.6) for weekends and the eve of public holidays.

 

Like regular sightseeing buses, Crystal Bus has an audio guide system, providing passengers with information about the attractions in Chinese and foreign languages.
