For those looking to see Hong Kong in style, you can now hop aboard a “Crystal Bus” to take in all the sights while feasting on some Michelin-grade dim sum.
The new double-decker tour bus went into operation on Wednesday. Its name comes from the fact that it’s decked out with HK$300,000 worth of crystals, not to mention a stereo system, TV and video game consoles.
For HK$380 ($50), passengers can sample seven dim sum dishes prepared by local Michelin-starred restaurants while cruising around Hong Kong. If you get bored looking out the window, you can also do some karaoke or watch a football game.
The Crystal Bus can hold 47 passengers, and there are two different 2.5-hour daytime tours that take tourists to over 20 attractions around Kowloon, Hong Kong Island or the New Territories.
There are also private 5-hour nighttime tours on offer, costing HK$8,800 on weekdays and HK$12,800. For that money, you get to choose the itinerary yourself.
The company’s founder Hong Ka-hung invested HK$10 million in getting the project started. He hopes to add five or eight more Crystal Buses in the next 5 years. Considering mainland visitors’ well-known love for luxury, we think he’s got a solid business plan here.
