If you’re taking a trip to Hong Kong anytime soon, not only can you sip on craft beer designed to taste better in-flight, but now you can travel in style when you land with the recent launch of the Crystal Bus — a luxury double-decker tour bus featuring a seven-course dim sum meal from a local Michelin-starred restaurant.
The Crystal Bus currently offers three different tours available through the end of August: two daytime tours with set itineraries and one night tour. The day tours cost HK$380 ($50) and the night tours, which are customizable to guest preferences, cost between HK$8,800 ($1,134) and HK$12,800 ($1,649).
Designing the Crystal Bus and getting it on the road was no easy feat, according to Hung Ka-hang, who invested HK$10 million in the luxury tour bus project, The Standard reported.
Hung told The Standard it took the team 20 months to obtain licenses and meet the Transport Department’s regulations. Now, the tour is permitted to run for the next 15 years.
There’s only one Crystal Bus currently available, but the company says it plans to expand and roll out more buses in the coming years.
