Engineering Marvels

Every year millions of people use the Tsing Ma Bridge without actually getting a close look at this engineering marvel. This 1377m bridge spanning the busy Ma Wan Channel is the express roadway to Hong Kong international airport on Lantau Island and the world’s largest suspension bridge carrying six lanes of vehicular traffic on one deck and two railway lines on another. The span is the largest in the world carrying rail traffic. Since its completion in 1997, the bridge has remained a renowned landmark of Hong Kong.

The best way to get a perspective of Hong Kong’s magnitude and view its many magnificent landmarks is to take a cruise in Hong Kong harbor, one of the world’s busiest and most impressive natural harbors. Take the Tsing Ma Bridge Cruise that starts from Kowloon Pier 3 or from Pier 9 in Central Hong Kong Island that sails outwards to the North West. Be enthralled by the urban spectacle of world famous high rises of well known banks and commercial establishments crowding the waterfront while sipping a glass of wine, glide past the naval base at stone cutters island and Hong Kong’s oldest typhoon shelter in Yan Ma Tei, see countless container vessels, junks, sampans, pleasure boats skimming the water against the amazing backdrop of Hong Kong Island, see traditional boatyards, the Tuen Mun Expressway and the world’s busiest container terminal nearby. See busy Tsing Ma Bridge as an imposing landmark by day and lit up with fairy lights in the night silhouetted against the glittering skyline. Enjoy the diversity of Hong Kong at every turn.
