Gorgeous Bridges of Hong Kong

Hong Kong is not only known for its buzzing nightlife, bustling business ventures but also for its high-density transportation systems. A major part of that would be its stunning and practical bridges. This list compiles the best bridges in Hong Kong that are a must-see on your vacation to Hong Kong.

Here is the list of 7 Bridges in hong kong

1. Shenzhen Bay Bridge

A 5.5 km-long dual three-lane carriageway, the Shenzhen Bay bridge which was formerly known as the Hong Kong-Shenzhen Western Corridor. It is a cross-border highway between Shenzhen City and Hong Kong with both governments supervising the design, infrastructure and construction within their territories and thereby working in sync to make this an effective connection. This bridge comes as a much-needed relief from the ever-increasing cross-border traffic and marks a new era for closer economic and social ties between Hong Kong and the Mainland.

2. Tsing Ma Bridge, Hong-kong

The popular Lantau Island, a place on every list, is connected to the rest of the city via the architectural, engineering marvel- Tsing Ma Bridge. With massive size towering over the area in the day and a twinkling span of lights by night, Tsing Ma Bridge is the longest suspension bridge conveying road as well as rail travel in the world. The Tsing Ma Bridge is a haven for photographers as it offers splendid sunset views and the majestic bridge itself is aesthetically pleasing. 

3. Kap Shui Mun Bridge

One of the longest double-deck, cable-stayed bridges in the world, the Kap Shui Mun bridge spans Kap Shui Mun Channel linking Lantau Island Ma Wan Island as a means to access the Hong Kong International airport. An innovative hybrid design transports both roads as well as railway traffic where the upper deck is used for motor vehicles and the lower deck is meant for vehicle use plus the MTR. This is another semi-fan style looking bridge on this list with its design resembling a spread-out hand fan. 

4. Stonecutters Bridge

The Stonecutters  Bridge constituting a major part of Route 8 between Tsing Yi and Cheung Sha Wan, has a very distinctive feature derived from its unique design. While looking up from underneath the bridge, the bridge frame has a striking resemblance to film negatives in the shape of boxes that are usually seen on them. The said design when clicked or observed in the backdrop of a clear blue sky is a fulfilling experience.

5. Hong Kong-Zhuhai Bridge

The world’s largest longest sea bridge (55kms long) that took 9 years and a whopping USD 20 billion to build, the Hong Kong-Zhuhai Bridge is not just a revolutionary transportation connection between the major cities of Hong Kong, Macau and Zhuhai, it is also a stunning piece of architecture. The convenience this bridge brings with it is immense. It substantially cuts down the travel time between the 3 major cities of Pearl River Delta, making a road trip more likely and fun!

6. Ting Kau Bridge

The Ting Kau Bridge is best visible from the Ting Kau Beach. It features a visually pleasing, fan-like design with cables running from its towers to the bridge deck. It is close to the Tsing Ma Bridge and also serves as the main bridge that connects the Hong Kong International Airport in Lantau Island to the rest of the city. It is one of the longest cable-stayed bridge that helps transcend the gap between the New Territories and Mainland-Hong Kong. The bridge is also a paradise for photographers, architecture and design-loving enthusiasts.

7. Tsing Yi North Bridge

Hong Kong’s largest prestressed concrete balanced cantilever bridge, the Tsing Yi North Bridge consists of 4 traffic lanes which connect the Island of Tsing Yi to Mainland-Hong Kong. This bridge makes intra-city travel much more sorted, strategic.

Bridges in Hong Kong are not just a piece of art, they are architectural marvels and a paradise for everyone wanting to experience the making of Hong Kong into the metropolitan hub that it is today!
