    Cruise Port of Hong Kong, which also known as the Ocean Terminal, is one of the largest cruise ports of Asia. It is located in the Bay of Victoria, in south-western part of Kowloon Peninsula. It is connected with the Hong Kong center by the Canton Road. 

    At one time the 380-meter cruise port mooring in Hong Kong was a harbor, which was adapted for the cruise ships in the 1960s. Official opening of the cruise terminal in Hong Kong was held on 22 March 1966. Since then the port has been one of the key commercial and tourist centers of Hong Kong. Next to the Ocean Terminal are located numerous shopping centers, hotels and tourist attractions of the TST (Tsim Sha Tsui) district.

    Cruise port in Hong Kong is home to the largest cruise company in Asia and the third world cruise company - Star Cruises. Among the famous ships, which had already visited the port of Hong Kong are Queen Elizabeth 2, Star Princess, Canberra and others.

    Hong Kong cruise port offers dozens of cruise destinations in the South-East Asia. Here start cruises to the coasts of Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia and India. One of the most popular cruise destinations available in the Hong Kong port is Hong Kong-Macao ferry that transports people from the metropolis to the major casino center of Asia.

    The staff of Ocean Terminal speaks English, as a rule, along with Cantonese, that is spread in Hong Kong.

    Cruise port of Hong Kong has excellent transport links with the mainland. Here are available regular buses, water taxis, boats, and ferries to the city of Hong Kong. The port also has well-established connections with the airport of Hong Kong (IATA code: HKG). Airport Express buses regularly run to the airport. One of the most effective ways to get from the cruise port to the Hong Kong mainland is Star Ferry. On the ferry board, which goes around the island part of Hong Kong, you can enjoy one of the most famous views of the city and its main peak Mount Victoria.

    Today Hong Kong is one of the world's most urbanized centers. It is annually visited by millions of tourists. Among the major attractions of Hong Kong popular among the guests of the city are Disneyland, the Oceanarium and the famous Stanley Market. Close to the cruise port are located two hotels of the same brand: Marco Polo Hong Kong Hotel and Marco Polo Gateway Hotel.

    It should be noted that the cruise port of Hong Kong is expected expansion in the near future. In addition to the Ocean Terminal in 2013 in the former airport territory it is planned to open a modern cruise port of Kai Tak.

    Sights include: floating restaurants at the harbour, Tai Po racecourse, the beaches at Castle Peak, Man Mo Temple; the bell tower at the tip of the Kowloon peninsula serves as an excellent viewing platform of the city skyline; the 800 m long escalator on Hongkong Island (the longest in the world), "Tiger Balm Garden" with its small caves and statues from Chinese mythology, Victoria Peak with views of the port and the city. There is also a huge number of restaurants and shops. .
