Tsing Ma Bridge, Hong Kong

4.3
Spanning a total of 2.16 km (1.34 mi), and rising as high as 206 m (675 ft), the dazzling lights of Tsing Ma Bridge by night and the impressive bulk of it by day make it a favorite with tourists. This is the largest bridge in the world carrying rail traffic: head here to witness the sight of the railway tracks positioned beneath the main car lanes, with trains transferring passengers and cargo to and from Hong Kong airport. Head to the northwest corner of Tsing Yi Island for a viewing platform where you can survey the bridge from a distance.

  • The case was at the airport prior to departure order 9-10 hours. Came out of the Terminal and saw the bus stop, boarded the number E21 (just kill the time). Number E21, because tickets cost $14. On the second floor, picked good places and drove off. Just in time our improvised excursion was 5:00. Two hours before the center of Hong Kong, an hour walk in Centre at the airport two hours ago. Very impressed with the types of bridges, types of cableway and the landscape of Hong Kong.

  • Passed during the travel by bus to the hotel from the airport. Location is good. Bus is recommended if you want to enjoy the views.

  • This is the first impression Hong Kong, the big city, left me, in a very memorable and beautiful way. The harbor and the sky, shows you the other side of Hong Kong, not crowded, but open and wide.  more »

  • Longest rail and vehicle bridge in Hong Kong. Wonderful night view.
  • Airport to New Territories, a breathtaking view at Tsing Ma Bridge. I wish I could stop here to have a spectacular view from the bridge.
  • The bridge was named after two of the islands at its ends, namely Tsing Yi and Ma Wan. The Tsing Ma Bridge was designed to carry two three-lane carriageways on the upper deck and two railway tracks on the lower deck. There are also two sheltered single-lane carriageways on the lower deck for maintenance access and as backup for traffic during typhoons when wind speed is still within acceptable limits. It is the world's 11th-longest span suspension bridge, and was the second longest at time of completion.
  • Hong Kong is a city very easy to fall in love with. Its scenic beauty is unique. But what makes it outstanding is the way one gem is connected to another. I have travelled to Lantau by many modes. Best of course is the long ropeway. But Tsing Ma Bridge too is another alternative.  It is the world's 11th-longest span suspension bridge, and was the second longest at time of completion. The bridge was named after two of the islands at its ends, namely Tsing Yi and Ma Wan. Tsing Ma Bridge is the most prominent element of the Lantau Link, an infrastructure project built to connect Lantau, Hong Kong's largest island, to the urbanised areas of the territory. Until this link opened in 1998, Lantau Island could only be accessed by water, and was completely rural. It has two decks and carries both road and rail traffic, which also makes it the largest suspension bridge of this type. The bridge's is the longest of all bridges in the world carrying rail traffic and 41-metre-wide (135 ft) bridge deck carries six lanes of automobile traffic, with three lanes in each direction. The lower level contains two rail tracks and two sheltered carriageways used for maintenance access and traffic lanes when particularly severe typhoons strike Hong Kong and the bridge deck is closed to traffic. The Lantau Link was built as part of the Airport Core Programme, which ultimately served to provide Hong Kong with a brand new airport at Chek Lap Kok (off the north coast of Lantau) to replace the older, congested Kai Tak Airport. The magnificent bridge stands majestic any time of the day or night.
  • Spectacular and long bridge with a great view onto Hong Kong, the large freight harbour and the sea. Seldom experienced any traffic jam. Conveniently connects the International Airport with Central Hong Kong.

Where to stay in Hong Kong

Head to Tsim Sha Tsui for the main tourist section of Hong Kong, where it's easy to find reasonably priced accommodations to suit your particular requirements, with more expensive hotels closer to the water and side streets offering budget hostels. You can also consider Hong Kong Island, which offers easy links to the mainland via its ferry and train lines. Chain hotels sit in the northern section of the island, where luxury and budget options remain available.
