The Observation Wheel area on the Central Waterfront Promenade has been given a neat little makeover in what is called the AIA Vitality Park. This is designated space for fostering wellness-themed activities and healthier, better lives.

There will be sponsored yoga and exercise sessions at AIA Vitality Park. Additionally, guests will find several kiosks, numerous tables and benches, a large scale jumbotron screen, carousel, a handful of family-friendly installations and open space with artificial grass for the children to run around. It is a neat little addition to the Observation Wheel, providing more reason to visit and spend time at the Central Waterfront along Victoria Harbour.

I've enjoyed the Observation Wheel a couple times over the past year, finding it to be a fair attraction, something particularly enjoyable for those visiting Hong Kong with families. Opening hours are 11am to 11pm daily.

Ticket prices are much cheaper these days (HK$20 per adult, HK$10 for children and seniors and free for those under 3 years of age). You can buy in advance on their website or at the ticket kiosk just near the ferris wheel.

In short, the Observation Wheel is a modern ferris wheel with 42 enclosed gondolas which can carry a max of 8 people. It rises to a height of 60 metres, affording nice views of the Hong Kong Skyline to the south and east and of Victoria Harbour and Kowloon to the north. A full cycle around the Observation Wheel takes approx 5-6 minutes and tickets are usually good for 2 or 3 spins depending on the queue sizes.

Lots of things are expensive in HK: rent, groceries, alcohol...but not this! For an unbelievably low HK$20 (around £2), you get a great view of the harbour and the buildings on both sides. When compared to other similar rides around the word, that is an amazing price. At the moment, with the city having so few tourists, there are no queues either and you’ll probably be able to get your own gondola without paying the full HK$160 either.

The sightseeing attraction on the harbourfront on the Hong Kong Island side of Victoria Harbour labours under the prosaic title, the Hong Kong Observation Wheel. It would be called in eye in other cities that have such a feature. It's a great way to see the city, at least the immediate vicinity of the harbour and Central beyond. Booking is straightforward, with the handy kiosk metres away from the gondolas. It was quiet when we we were there, presumably because of the coronavirus. The short queue meant we were soon next in line. Once you're inside your cabin, the wheel moves at a gentle pace through the air, circling high above the city. Even for those nervous about heights, it shouldn't be taxing or worrisome. After a trip of about 15 minutes - two or three spins - you're back to ground again. The staff are attentive,helpful and efficient. At HK$20 for adults, the experience is economical for most and well worth fitting into your Hong Kong stay.

Yeah, its' a tourist trap....but it's worth it.....20 HKD if you wanna share or 160 HKD if you wanna have your own gondola. We really enjoyed the entire adventure. The views are outstanding.
