Hong Kong Observation Wheel

Ferris Wheel in Central Hong Kong

The Hong Kong Observation Wheel (HK Ferris Wheel) is an addition to the city and one of the easiest ways to get a bird’s eye view of downtown Hong Kong and Victoria Harbour. Similar to the London Eye or Singapore Flyer, each air-conditioned pod takes up to 8 people and the ride takes a little under 30 minutes. It’s a smooth and relaxing journey around so even those who feel uneasy with heights should soon get used to the experience. The best time to ride the Hong Kong Observation Wheel is between 6pm (the changing sky makes the backdrop especially beautiful) and 8.15pm (when the Symphony of Lights turns the buildings into a visual arts display).
