Specially decorated in a rickshaw livery, the "Rickshaw Sightseeing Bus" offers you a convenient hop-on, hop-off service. Like riding on a rickshaw in the old days, you can explore Hong Kong with a 540-degree panoramic view, this time on an air-conditioned double decker, and enjoy a spectacular sight of all the attractions along the way.

Good way to see the city

We always tend to use hop on hop off buses to get an initial impression of a city. This tour did not disappoint and was a reasonable price.

Read up a few reviews online on how this tour was more of a value for money & decided to do rickshaw bus instead of big bus tours...  Landed in TST & roamed around the whole place as indicated in the website but after 2 hours in the hot & humid weather, couldn't even see one bus on the road...same...

We caught this bus tour because it arrived at our bus-stop before its competitor. The Bus was rather dated, which would not have mattered except the sound system did not work at all. Countering this, the driver was very pleasant and helpful, though he spoke no English (fortunately my wife speaks Cantonese). The driver was very apologetic about the lack... More

If you are not bothered about hopping on/of, having a special night tour and just want a quick orientation of Hong Kong then this is the Rickshaw sightseeing bus is for you. We paid HK$17.40 for a single trip on the "heritage" tour and thoroughly enjoyed the 50 mins we were on it. The buses are slightly dated and the... More

I reccommend this tour (actually both routes) to anybody who has recently moved to HK island and wants to get to know the city fast and without having to worry on how to do it or which stop to get down etc. You can get off on any specialized stop and get on again, the same day. Really fun, go... More

A bit hard to find the bus stop near the islandside Star Ferry pier, but there are signs. We first took the main loop without leaving at intermediate places and then the smaller east side loop, exiting at Race course and continuing on next bus. All three were running about 15 mins late but the promise, one bus per 30... More

I have used Rickshaw Bus Tours in Hong Kong once and it is a less expensive option to the Big Bus hop-on hop-off tour however you do get less inclusions. There are two routes on offer and I guess one bonus is that you could pay using your Octopus Card (Hong Kongs smartcard travel pass). Again you can get off... More

The tour round Hong Kong cost us HK$17.40, and you get what you pay for, a breakneck dash round Hong Kong, for our price there was no getting on and off, it was just the ride, there was no commentary, no information as to where we were, but it was an entertaining ire nonetheless! The alternative bus too company has... More

This is a cheap hop on and off bus. Sometimes the audio works and sometimes it does not. Sometimes the drivers forget to actually stop so there is no chance of hopping off so remember if you want to get off at a spot let the driver know in advance. In some ways our experience was so bad it was... More

Which aint much! I paid my HK$50 for the two tours Heritage & Modern and boarded the rather gloomy, rather grimy bus. I chose to sit downstairs as it was too hot to sit on the open top deck. I found the drivers of both tours to be surly and rude, simply looking away when I asked a simple question... More

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
