Lantau Link Visitors Centre & Viewing Platform - Tsing Yi Island, Hong Kong

Lantau Link Visitors Centre & Viewing PlatformThe Lantau Link Visitors Centre, located at the northwestern corner of Tsing Yi Island in Hong Kong, is a small museum dedicated to providing information about the Lantau Link, a series of infrastructures linking Hong Kong International Airport to the urban areas in Hong Kong.

The 3.5-kilometre Lantau Link is comprised of the Tsing Ma Bridge, a suspension bridge linking Tsing Yi to Ma Wan island; the Ma Wan Viaduct, a viaduct crossing the Ma Wan Channel; and the Kap Shui Mun Bridge, a cable-stayed bridge linking Ma Wan to Lantau Island. At present, the Lantau Link is the only land passageway connecting Lantau and other parts of Hong Kong.

The Visitors Centre contains models, photographs, videos and other informational materials about the engineering marvel that is the Lantau Link. Apart from the centre, there is also a viewing platform that offers unobstructed panoramic views of the link, particularly the Tsing Ma Bridge, currently the world's longest road and rail bridge, and the busy Ma Wan shipping channel.

The Visitors Centre is open daily (except Wednesdays and holidays) from 10am to 5pm (M, T, Th and F).  It's open till 6:30pm on Saturdays and Sundays. The viewing platform is open throughout the year, 7am to 10:30pm (until 1:30 am on weekends and holidays). Admission is free.

To get to the Lantau Link Visitors Centre, take green-minibus No. 308M from Tsing Yi MTR Station (exit A-1 will take you to the minibus stand). Alternatively, take a taxi from the same station.
