Hong Kong’s New Culture of Cruising

A new terminal will secure Hong Kong’s position as one of the must-see cruise destinations on Earth

A forthcoming water transport system is in the works to ease the distance between downtown Hong Kong and the new cruise ship terminal.
A new $1 billion terminal that will be able to accommodate the largest ships afloat will secure Hong Kong’s position as one of the must-see cruise destinations on Earth.

For years, the city has been a desired destination for both ship companies and vacationers alike, and those dreams will soon become a reality. With its cultural treasures, world-class shopping and great harbor, Hong Kong is a comfortable though exotic locale for English speakers seeking a taste of the East that’s extremely accessible.

The largesse of the new Kai Tak terminal means Hong Kong will be able to handle four large ships at once. Plans include 100 check-in stations, five passenger bridges, and even a landscaped rooftop park on the third story of the terminal to offer cruisers some of the best views of Victoria Harbor around.

With its large international airport, Hong Kong has the ability to be a starting and endpoint for cruises, and not just a port of call. And with 50 million middle-class Chinese in the Pearl River Delta provinces, the nearby population can provide a constant potential stream of vacationers to utilize the big ships.
