The Hong Kong Ferris Wheel

In The Heart Of The Central Harbourfront!

The Hong Kong Ferris Wheel or Observation Wheel as it is officially named, just a stone-throw away from the Central Star Ferry Pier, is giving us just another striking venue from which to enjoy wonderful sweeping views of Victoria Harbour.

Hong Kong Ferris Wheel from Central Ferry Pier

This newest observation wheel is the city's response to England's London Eye and the Singapore Flyer, which also provide some of the best panoramic views in their respective cities.

The Hong Kong Observation Wheel is 60 meters high and is easily reached with the MTR Central Station or the Star Ferry.

You can combine this attraction with a walk along the Central Waterfront Promenade for some of the most striking views of the harbour and the majestic skyline towering above.

One of the best times to catch a ride is at sunset when the row of skyscrapers are softly lit or at night, when the skylines on both sides of the harbour come to life in their glittery best. And it would be quite a treat to catch the Symphony of Lights show during your ride (8:00 pm if you can time it!)

The wheel's 42 air-conditioned gondolas hold between 8 to 10 passengers. The gondolas are smaller in comparison to the London Eye's or Singapore Flyer which hold a couple dozen people and unlike the London Eye and Singapore Flyer capsules where you get to walk around, the Hong Kong Ferris Wheel is for sitting passengers only.

The ride lasts 20 minutes, 20 minutes of unobstructed 360 degree views of one of the world's most iconic skylines and its stunning harbour. If you didn't get that perfect shot first time around, don't worry, you have two more chances as the gondolas make three rounds in every ride.
