About
Located at the iconic Central Harbourfront, the Hong Kong Observation Wheel offers spectacular day and night views of Hong Kong’s famous skyline and much more. Our ferris wheel rides are priced at just HK$20; as we want to make the experience affordable for all to enjoy. Online reservation is also available to ensure a smoother experience. With just a quick stroll from the Central/Hong Kong MTR Station and Central Ferry Piers, you will not only be greeted by our Ferris wheel, but also an open lawn, yummy snacks and free healthy initiatives at our wellness-themed park: AIA Vitality Park. The AIA Vitality Park hosts a variety of classes and events including fitness classes, yoga, kickboxing, swing dancing and even Capoeira. We will continue to introduce new elements to this iconic landmark including a Classic Carousel which is now open to public.

Top ways to experience Hong Kong Observation Wheel and nearby attractions

The area
Neighbourhood: 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.
How to get there
  • Hong Kong • 5 min walk
  • Central • 7 min walk

Very nice view and good atmosphere! Ticket isn't expansive and you can choose many attractions there.

The Ferris wheel is worth a short detour for the beautiful view. Good location between the MTR Station Central and the stop of the Hop on hop off buses (big bus tour).
We were practically the only guests, so no waiting time.

Lovely views as you go round. Had our own private gondola. Views were stunning and you went round around 4 times.

Highly recommend to visit during the day. You could get a private cabin if you travel with 4+ during off peak hours. Although the wheel may look small from the ground, the view from top are brilliant. A ticket gets you about 3-4 rounds.

We chose to go at night to take in the Hong Kong night view. It was a short wait and we chose to have the whole car to ourselves. It was comfortable, air-conditioned, and gave good views of both Kowloon and Hong Kong Island. The whole ride took about 15 mins (3 rounds). This is way cheaper than other ferris wheels around the world.

We went on the wheel on a Sunday and were expecting long queues however there was no queue at all. We booked a private cab which cost us 160 Hong Kong dollars, there are 8 seats in each cab so you are effectively paying for all the seats. The views were brilliant, the wheel goes round very slowly and you go round 3 times. Great fun and well worth a visit.

One of the cheapest attraction in hong kong, near the mtr station and bus station or even the pier. Easy to access and not a very long queue

It seems like every city we visit now has a gigantic ferris wheel. Unfortunately this one fails to live up to the reputation of the London Eye or Singapore Flyer. Not only are the cabs not air conditioned they also do not have a narrative about the City or the sights you will be seeing. It also rotates very slowly with many stops to let passengers on an off which is very annoying in the heat of the cab. On a positive note, it is very inexpensive and a good thing to do in conjunction with the Star Ferry which is located very close to the dock on the Hong Kong island side.
