Hong Kong as a leading regional cruise hub

Develop Hong Kong into a leading regional cruise hub

Hong Kong has great potential to capture the opportunities brought about by the growth in the Asia Pacific market:

Natural advantages and modern infrastructure
Victoria Harbour – wide and deep with no air draft limit;
Aviation network covering the whole world as well as excellent infrastructure to facilitate “fly-cruise” passengers;
Experienced tourism trade, providing support services to cruise companies and passengers on international standards;
Locating at a strategic geographical position in Asia Pacific and offering diverse choices for cruise itinerary.


Hong Kong - a must-go destination
Convenient and diversified shopping facilities providing tourists with abundant choices and unforgettable shopping experience;
Hong Kong as a dining hub blending Chinese and international cuisines, Michelin launched its first Dining Guide on Hong Kong in December 2008;
Hong Kong with a unique cultural blend of east and west, combining modern architecture with traditional antiques, local cultural characteristics with British colonial relics can be observed everywhere.

Cruise terminals
Ocean Terminal
  Ocean Terminal is located at Tsim Sha Tsui in Kowloon Peninsula. From there, cruise visitors can conveniently explore other parts of Hong Kong by public transport - including bus, ferry, taxi or the MTR.
Kai Tak Cruise Terminal
  Located in the southern tip of the former Kai Tak runway, the Kai Tak Cruise Terminal came into operation in June 2013. A green minibus route (No. 86) operates a daily service between the terminal and Kowloon Bay (Telford Gardens). The Kowloon Motor Bus (“KMB”) operates a circular bus route (No. 5R) running between the terminal and Ngau Tau Kok MTR Station daily. Taxi stands and fee-charging car park for private cars are also available at the terminal. In addition, the public can go to the terminal by taking the special sailings of the licensed ferry service between North Point and Kwun Tong via Kai Tak Runway Park Pier. More information on the Kai Tak Cruise Terminal can be found under the section "Hardware Development".
