Kai Tak Cruise Terminal
Once the site of Hong Kong’s famed harbourside airport, Kai Tak Cruise Terminal is set to become one of the city’s most impressive and prestigious MICE venues and transform the city into Asia’s cruise hub.
Capable of handling the world’s largest cruise ships, with up to 220,000 in gross tonnage, the terminal was designed by Sir Norman Foster (Foster+Partners) and encompasses an expansive 3,000 square metre arrivals hall that doubles as a versatile exhibition space. Its remarkably lengthy apron (850m by 30m) offers a pleasant setting for outdoor events and exhibits, while the terminal’s rooftop garden capitalises on the city’s breathtaking skyline to make a superb location for cocktail parties or pre-event gatherings.
The terminal’s impressive infrastructure allows visitors to zip quickly between ship and shore, with a short ride to some of Hong Kong’s buzziest dining, shopping and hotel districts, such as Mong Kok and Tsim Sha Tsui.
