• Crystal Bus Tour

    17 July 2018

    On a Saturday afternoon a group of Women in Construction and Lighthouse Club members attended a unique dining and sight-seeing experience on the Crystal Bus Dining Tour opting for the dim sum lunch tour option. Once we stepped inside the bus cabin, we were surrounded by over a (very bling!) 10,000 Swarovski crystals on the bus! There were crystals on every available surface including the tables and window pillars on the bus.

    The bus drove by a total of about 24 attractions along the way, including sights and surrounds of Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon and Lantau Island on a 2.5 hour trip, with Chinese/ English audio information introducing each attraction to the guests.

    The bus stopped off at Tsing Yi Island at the Lantau Link View Point where everyone climbed the Look Out to take in views and photos of the engineering marvels of Tsing Ma bridge (suspension bridge), Ting Kau bridge and Kap Shui Mun bridge (cable stay bridge).

    It also drove pass the Kwai Tsing Container Terminal Port and Stonecutters Bridge amongst some well-known buildings such as Peninsula Hotel and 1881 Heritage.  

    Halfway during the ride, we were served with yummy selection of dim sum (Michelin star) including Sui Mai, Turnip cake, BBQ pork bun, lotus leaf sticky rice, shrimp dumpling etc.

    All in all, it was a fun experience that we got to view Hong Kong from a different perspective while enjoying the dimsum within the nicely decorated and air-conditioned Crystal Bus.
