    The Tsing Ma Bridge is the world's longest suspension bridge that includes both road and rail traffic. The main span is 1.47 km in length while its height is 206 metres. It connects Tsing Yi and Ma Wan islands as part of a greater expanse of bridges and road that links Lantau Island to the rest of Hong Kong. The name Tsing Ma comes from the two small islands mentioned above.

    The Tsing Ma Bridge opened to the public in 1997 and was considered an engineering marvel in its day. It is an impressive looking structure as you approach and take the bridge, it may look even better at night when the bridge is lit up with lights.

    Your best chance to encounter and experience the Tsing Ma Bridge is by way of public bus or taxi transportation between the city and Hong Kong International Airport or Disneyland which are both on Lantau Island.

    If you have particular interest in viewpoints where you can see the bridge, you may want to consider visiting the Lantau Link Viewing Platform on Tsing Yi Island. From this elevated platform area, the bridge can be viewed very well when sky conditions are favourable. There is also a Visitor Centre with displays related to the bridge as well.

    This is one of the world's longest cable bridges, so they say. It is an architectural marvel as far as I can tell. Someone told us this has been needed for a long time, so when it opened, people celebrated. Fun history!

    A good way to get to and from Ap Lei Chau. Even the subway uses it.

    Very handy for everyone. And with the subway, a lot more people will be using it.

    This giant, snaking bridge has impressive scale and statistics. At 55km, it's the longest sea-crossing bridge in the world, it cost almost US$20 billion and consists of 3 cable-stayed bridges, an undersea tunnel and 4 artificial islands. It’s relatively new and has only been opened a few years. Building started in 2009 and finished in 2018.
    We saw the bridge from a few different angles during our recent trip to Tai O. Catching the Fortune Ferry to Tai O, we passed underneath it and later when we hiked to the top of Fu Shan Viewing Point, we saw it stretching out in the other direction also. Private cars need a special permit to use the bridge so most people will cross it by bus or taxi (or go under it like we did).

    The Longevity Bridge is one of the interesting things to see at the statue park at the southeast end of the Repulse Bay Beach, just outside the Hong Kong Life Saving Society (HKLSS) building. Note, many people refer to the HKLSS building as a temple and from the look of it, it is easy to see why.

    The bridge was unveiled here in 1981 and is attractively placed amongst numerous large statues. It is also beside a large red Chinese pavilion structure. There is a fun legend that those who walk across this bridge will have 3 days added to their lives, hence the name 'Longevity' in the bridge name.

    There are two pedestrian bridges you will likely encounter in Tai O, this one being situated at the mouth of the river near the southwest end of the village and cluster of stilt houses. It was built in 1996 as a way to link Tai O Wing On Street (south) and Kat Hing Street (north) and to provide more convenient river crossings. Prior to the bridge being constructed, crossing was done by rope pulley ferry run by woman from the village.

    The Tai Chung Bridge is very short, just 8-10 metres in length and notable for its blue colour. Its simpler counterpart, the Sun Ki Bridge (1979), is situated 5-6 minutes walk towards the northeast along Kat Hing Street. This cousin bridge is also interesting and worth finding. From both bridges, there are nice views of the the stilt houses lining the riverbank and mud flats.

    One of the many interesting things to find in Tai O is the short Sun Ki Bridge which crosses the river and mud flats on the northeast side of the village, linking Kat Hing Street (west) and Sun Ki Street (east). There is a small information board providing glimpse of the history of the bridge.

    It was built in 1979 and paid for by the local residents to create a more convenient way to cross the the river and flats here. Before the bridges construction, generations of villages had to punt their way across. What you find is a simple wooden bridge construction with fence guards on both sides. It is only around 25 metres long.

    Interestingly, from the middle of the bridge, you will see some of the best views of the stilt houses of Tai O, lining the riverbank and flats. It is a good spot from which to take photographs.

    One of the interesting things to see at Shek O is the Blue Bridge (also referred to as Lover's Bridge). The bridge is located at the end of Headland Road, connecting Shek O to Tai Tau Chau when the tide is high. Otherwise, during low tide, there is natural tombolo which you can use to cross the rocky shoreline instead.

    The original Blue Bridge was constructed during the 1960s and had long been known as a romantic spot for dates, even being coloured light powder blue to create a romantic atmosphere. Unfortunately, the bridge was completely destroyed during Typhoon Mangkhut which struck Hong Kong in 2018.

    As of early 2021, the local government had finished rebuilding the Blue Bridge. Instead of using more modern methods and attractive designs, the new bridge was rebuilt to resemble the old bridge as close as possible due to overwhelming preference by local residents. As such, the narrow, blue-coloured concrete replacement bridge you see today is more or less what the original looked like in the past.
