Big Bus Hong Kong Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

Capture incredible views from an open-top bus

Your big bus Hong Kong hop-on hop-off tour kicks off when you board the double-decker open-top bus at any of the city’s 22 stops. Settle in for informative commentary and learn about the sites, sounds, history and traditions of this diverse island.

Select from three different routes that showcase the best of Hong Kong Island (Red Route), Stanley (Green Route) or Kowloon neighborhood (Blue Route). Your 24- or 48-hour ticket grants you access to all three routes, insuring you’ll see all the Hong Kong highlights.

Explore by foot using the provided map whenever you choose and wander through city streets, historic temples, well-kept museums and other cultural landmarks on this exceptional tour. While in Aberdeen—one of the buses stops—choose to add on a sampan ride around the harbor and gain up close access to one of Hong Kong’s most impressive floating villages. 

A one-way Star Ferry ticket is included with your tour. Enjoy a ride on this historic boat that’s been transporting some 70,000 passengers a day between Kowloon and Hong Kong Island since 1888.

Your ticket also includes your choice of a Peak Tram Sky Pass or admission to Sky100 Hong Kong Observation Deck. Whichever you choose, enjoy incredible views of Victoria Harbour and the Hong Kong sky line. Whether it’s the 360-degree views from atop the city’s highest building at Sky100, or the shops, dining and commerce that awaits you at the top of the Peak Tram funicular—both options are the perfect addition to this memorable day tour. 

See the Itinerary below for a full list of stops on each route.

Optional Upgrade: Big Bus Night Tour of Kowloon
A visit to Hong Kong would not be complete without experiencing the famous ‘Symphony of Lights’ illuminations and the neon spectacle of Nathan Road. This 1-hour panoramic night tour of Kowloon offers the best view of both. Ride through the bustling heart of Hong Kong and see Kowloon at its vibrant best: by night! If you’d like, you can finish your tour early and disembark at one of Kowloon’s bustling night markets to shop or sample local foods.

Easy way to see a lot of both HK and Kowloon. The Kowloon trip includes the Peak Tram which is excellent. Interesting on board narration to explain some of the history of HK and Kowloon. Not to be missed

When you go for trip to Hong Kong don't miss this package tour and remember this name BIG BUS. The most recommended tour package that let you explore entire Hong Kong from Kowloon and Central to back of Island, the Stanley Tour. See the amazing Hong Kong from Sky Terrace in Victoria Peak and at Sky100. Experience the origin of Hong Kong as a floating village on a traditional sampan ride. We love Hong Kong, We love Big Bus!

As usual this is the best way to see Hong Kong, Apart from the heat and wind on the top deck we enjoyed it.

Mary K

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

Great tour if you have a limited time available, takes you round all the must see places and you can also add extras onto your tour. Audio commentary is also very good telling you lots of facts about what you are seeing and where you are going. The night tour to Kowloon is also worth the trip.
