What people are saying about Hong Kong Island

Best way to see Hong Kong

3 separate routes - the green line offered an amazing and unexpected little gem of a trip to the south side of HK Island - Repulse Bay and Stanley are totally different from mainstream HK. Quiet, beautiful locations, well worth the trip. The tram and panorama were good but on a cloudy day not particularly impressive. Good day’s tour and worth every penny.

The bus routes are well chosen. The 48-hour ticket is recommended: it includes many vouchers and 4 ferry trips per person. At almost all stops there is staff in the BigBus dress. Perfect if the hotel is near HongKong Central.

This sighseeing buses makes it easy to reach many of the popular sights! All of the 3 lines are great, but my favorite is the green line out to the magnificent Repulse Bay, Stanley and Aberdeen! Thumps up...

Very useful to see and to learn about the city of Hong Kong but unfortunately it was very fogy we couldn’t see anything with the train on top

Efficient and easy.

A positive experience from start to finish. It was easy to book and transfer across to tickets at the office.
