Taxi ride in an undersea tunnel

Hong Kong has many interesting things but what I find most interesting is the undersea tunnel called the Cross Harbour tunnel which connects the main financial and commercial districts across the Victoria  Harbour.

Come join me in a Hong Kong taxi through this thrilling ride under the sea.

 

The tunnel was opened to the public on 02 August 1972 and now is the most congested roads towards the Hong Kong Island in Hong Kong and the world with almost over 116 thousand vehicles crossing it daily. After this tunnel was opened Hong Kong travelled far way from those days of the Star Ferry and other small ferries. There is a toll plaza at the Hung Horn end and it has 14 toll gates.

The Victoria Harbour covers an area of about 41.88 sq km and there are several islands within the harbour like the Green Island and the Kowloon rock.

If you are visiting Hong Kong do not forget to take a taxi ride through the undersea tunnel.
