This was surprisingly inexpensive and was a great way to get a unique view of the city. The enclosed and air-conditioned pods were comfortable. The ride line only took about ten minutes and the ride lasted about 15 minutes.

For only 20 hkd (~$2.50 usd) per person, you get a 30 min ride on the observation wheel. Lines are short during the daytime. Views are spectacular.

Great views no waiting in December. Don't be put off by what you have had to pay in other countries this one very reasonable. Nice park next to it plus a ferry terminal.

I recommend to try it in the evening. You can see an amazing panorama from the wheel. It does three circles. The wheel is not too high and therefore there is no reason to be afraid of it.

At HK$20 it is a lot cheaper than many other wheels we have been on, but not really worth taking the gondola on a cloudy rainy day

I guess it’s a good activity to do if you are in the vicinity and the queue is not long. You have to queue to buy the ticket and then queue to board the wheel. We tried it because there was no queue to buy...More

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

Hi Sacred21, popular times for the Wheel are usually 4pm till 11pm. The is usually less of a crowd at 11am when the Wheel opens. I'd recommend booking tickets online to reduce waiting time.

Yes, it re-open recently. Previously price is at HK$ 100 and now runs with another company and price is at HK20 only. Online booking is recommended. Kindly visit hkow.hk link for ticket, amazing view and definitely worth it.
